Mary and Raymond were kind and friendly. We loved our conversations with them. The property was beautiful and full of history. Our family room accommodated our group of four well. The water pressure in the shower was some of the best we experienced during our trip. Their traditional Irish breakfast was delicious!

We had a wonderful stay. The hosts are very helpful. We loved the beautiful old home. Great breakfast, comfortable beds. This was our first trip to Ireland (from the U.S.), and most certainly won't be our last.

The history of this B and B is quite remarkable. Built in 1776! The hosts were VERY nice and the breakfast was great! There is a small town 2 km from Moate Lodge and we had a great supper there. The room is very small and the bathroom has been modified to be accommodating for 2022.

Such a neat property! beautiful home, wonderful people. we were greeted with cakes and tea in the evening and sat by the fire talking with our hosts for at least an hour. they were wonderful! the bed was SO comfy and breakfast was perfect, our last before we had to get to the airport (which was less than an hour away). Stop in to the Irish National Stud if you're here.
