Elijah, Seattle, October 2018.  "This place is amazing. It has all the charm of an old world Irish house, with modern amenities. The grounds are gorgeous and well maintained. The place was conveniently located for our purposes, and there are some wonderful ruins to see within strolling distance. This place was perfect for an Irish getaway. I highly recommend it."

Sonja, Dublin, July 2018. "This is a beautiful, tranquil retreat a short drive from Fermoy, the lodge is really unique, comfortable, and very well maintained and clean. Nuala is a lovely host and was very accommodating for 3 generations of our family, very responsive and available without being intrusive. The house had all we needed for our stay and we will hopefully return for a quiet break in the future."

Maria, California, June 2018. "We loved everything about our stay. It was cute and cozy with plenty of room for our two families. The grounds are manicured beautiful gardens and the hosts were absolutely lovely. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect stay. The Gate lodge exceeded our expectations. The pictures don’t do it justice."

Karl, Lisa, Munich, May 2018. "The Gate lodge was exactly as advertised. Spotlessly clean and well equipped, nicely located just outside of town. Nuala was a wonderful host. Highly recommended. We will certainly visit again."

Andrea and Matteo, Turin, May 2018. "On a short business trip to Cork The Gate Lodge was a great base for us. Easy to get to just off the M8. Fast internet, plenty of space, very clean and comfortable. Beautiful gardens and enjoyed walking around them to clear our heads after a busy day."

Amanda, New York, April 2018. "We had a wonderful experience staying at The Gate Lodge. We used it as a home base for our adventures outside of Dublin. Our children (ages 2, 4, 7, and 9) had plenty of space and enjoyed the home and the property very much. Hugh and Nuala were great hosts!"

Fiona, California, March 2018. "Nuala’s home is a real find - and she is brilliant host. You cannot go wrong here... we had a party at Blackwater Castle and this was the perfect haven for my guests. Nuala was incredibly helpful and supportive throughout and a joy to deal with. Choosing this really cozy property is going to be a real asset to your trip to Ireland."

Lisa, Surrey, March 2018. Stunning Gate lodge with a rural, rustic feel, but modern amenities, gorgeous surroundings and fantastic hosts. Good amenities within the home, hot water, great wifi and comfy beds. Lots of space so that people can spread out or sit together in different rooms. A short drive to the local town with lots of shops and supermarkets, close to the motorway for easy access further a field."
