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.

Mrs. Mary and Mr. Raymond are the two sweetest people I encountered while traveling. Genuinely kind, concerned, and most excellent people to have a great conversation with. The lodge is beautiful and well kept. Centrally located in Athy, you can be in Dublin or take a drive through the mountains to Brea. Absolutely reccomend. Loved it.

Mid July we attended a concert in Nowlan Park, Kilkenny and this was the nearest available overnight accommodation. However, it was our treat! The rooms are clean & comfortable, the house, gardens and farmland are idyllic. We also enjoyed a special tour of Raymond’s ‘man-cave’- an outbuilding housing a home cinema with old movie posters and then upstairs a large room with WW1 & WW11 artefacts, photographs, newspaper clippings and historical facts with relevant local connections- all very interesting and informative! Thank you both Mary & Raymond!😊

Very comfortable accomodation in a beautiful old house in the country. Our hosts were very welcoming and offered us tea and homemade banana bread when we arrived. The breakfast was also very good and we got useful information about places to visit along our journey in Irland. A great start for a holiday!
