“Another gem”
Reviewed June 24, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Just back from ballyblood lodge, had a lovely week despite the weather. Located in a quiet rural area but perfect base to discover Clare limerick and Galway. The house itself is fairly impressive, plenty of room, light and everything you'll need, bikes wellies even a miniature hurling pitch!! The hot tub is a real treat. The house is perfect if you just want to chill, party, entertain the kids, it's an all rounder. Anything you want to know about Clare hurling- ask Kevin. Cheers for the memories

“Wonderful lodge in a lovely part of the world ”
Reviewed June 7, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Just back from a lovely week at ballybood lodge. The accommodation was fantastic with a beautifully equipped lodge with lots of great space inside and out. The hot tub was perfect and used every day. Owners were really nice and we really can't fault anything. Bikes were provided which was great as they can be expensive to hire for a family. Gas BBQ was also used on the wonderful patio area.

Lovely part of Ireland too close to limerick and Galway within an hour. Cliffs of maher 45 mins away with a lovely stretch of coastline.

All in all a definite recommendation. Thanks for a lovely week.

“DO NOT WAIT BOOK NOW”
Reviewed May 13, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

No seriously go book right now. This place is FANTABULOUS to say the least. Stayed a whole week. Mrs. Tricia emailed me a couple days before arrival to just touch base, arrived at lodge to find scones, jam and milk, how great is that. She went thru info on the house showed us around. So beautiful so quiet,hot tub is what the body needs as we were completely worn out each day, Mrs Tricia, thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful lodge

Outstanding. Only problem with this superb rental is that i didnt want to leave! Spotless welcoming and homely. The owners friendly cats were a lovely bonus for my girls . Tulla village has everything you could need grocery wise. But you wont need the essentials as Tricia the owner has thought of everything including scones and jam. Beautiful stove with turf and logs provided. An abundance of books and games for the children. Fabulous hot tub is a unique point and so relaxing. Perfect base to enjoy all family day outs co clare has to offer. I stayed in november and the house is super warm. House is not overlooked and is nice and private.

“Fantastic accommodation for families and a great home-base for day trips”
Reviewed April 20, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by the owner and shown around the farmhouse. The house had everything a family (we have three boys 6,4 and a toddler) could need and basic pantry items were provided (and fresh scones with jam!). We spent most days taking a morning trip to visit all the great places nearby (Bunratty Castle, Cliffs of Moher, Craggaunowen, Quin Abbey, Galway) and returning after lunch to relax in the very clean and well maintained hot tub. The kids loved the hot tub because they got to use it even when it was cold outside. There are also three friendly resident donkeys which the kids loved feeding apples to. We did our big grocery shop in Ennis which is also a lovely town; try the Poet's Corner there for a beer and some trad music. Would definitely recommend Ballyblood to any family looking to spend a relaxing week in the beautiful Irish countryside.

Thank you for taking the time to share this thoroughly lovely feedback with us all, we couldn't be happier that you enjoyed your stay at Ballyblood Lodge. It sounds like your family had the best of both worlds; getting out and about to explore all that the area had to offer and doing plenty of relaxing in the comfort of the lodge - the hot tub sounds like a particular treat! We certainly hope you will return to enjoy it all over again soon.

“Absolutely Fantastic”
Reviewed June 28, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Just returned from a week at Ballyblood Lodge and have to say this is the most fabulous home from home. Very well equipped, comfortable, clean and peaceful. Hot tub is a great feature which is welcome after a long day out. Not far from Ennis which has everything that you need. I would recommend this lodge to anyone looking to visit this area of Ireland.

We stayed here for our honeymoon in September. The owners were very welcoming and lovely. There was homemade scones, jam and a traditional honeymoon drink, Mead waiting for us on arrival. The house itself was spotless and spacious and the hot tub was a spectacular addition! Couldn't sing the praises more! Fantastic.
