I'm Nuala, We got so much enjoyment in sharing our Gate Lodge with such wonderful and interesting people in 2019. We have refurbished for 2020: new bathroom fit outs, bigger showers, new kitchen equipment and furniture, re decorated, and added some other bits and pieces.We hope they will make your stay more comfortable. Looking forward to welcoming many of you back in 2020.

Thank you all so much for your generous comments.

Andrew ,Beijing, December 2019. "Best place we have stayed in Ireland in many years. The house and the grounds are beautiful and inside the place has been updated with all the modern conveniences - it's warm, great showers, wifi, everything one would need. Nuala and Hugh were very welcoming and made our family's stay a wonderful experience. Will come back." 

Fabio, Florence, November 2019. "Woo what a change. Great renovations, new showers, kitchen furniture and equipment, a complete make over. We loved the walk in shower. Nuala you have done a wonderful job in up grading."

Fabio Thank you. It was long over due, we have been so busy this year we did not get a change to make these improvements until now. We have taken on all the positive feed back for our regular quests.I  am glad you liked them. Nuala

Sean, Manchester, June 2019. "The lodge itself has everything you’d need to have a great holiday and the setting couldn’t be more tranquil and private, it’s an ideal place to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We just wish we could have stayed for longer!"

Clare, Anualucia, May 2019. "Ml familia y yo tuvimos una estancia maravillosa en este caserón. La casa es muy completa y acogedora. Perfecta para familiar con niños o grupos de amigos. Pudimos disfrutar de los maravillosos jardínes que hay alrededor y su ubicación es perfecta pues está cerca de Cork y también bien conectado con las salidas a la autovía. Nuala, la propietaria, fué encantadora y nos ayudó en todo lo necesario. ¡Lo recomiendo!"

Thomas, Garmisch Partenkirchen, May 2019. "This cottage was the perfect place to which to come home everyday. Located outside of Fermoy, it is a short drive to Cobh and Cork, as well as a little longer to Dungarvan, where we began our 46-km bike ride on the Waterford Greenway. Nuala and her husband were terrific hosts. I highly recommend this cottage: not only were the beds comfortable, but the grounds are beautiful. I will most definitely stay here again."

Kathleen, California, April 2019. "We had a wonderful time at Nuala's place. The cottage was adorable and absolutely perfect for us. We enjoyed walking the beautiful property. We didn't want to leave and we hope to come back someday."

Barry, Mayobridge, March, 2019. "We really enjoyed our stay here. Nuala's place is a combination of rustic with modern amenities (power showers and wood burning stove was a real treat). And they are easily contacted and more than helpful when needed. The gardens are beautifully kept and we were welcome to walk around them. The rooms are large with plenty of room for 2 adults and 4 kids. Also access to Cork is very easy (just watch for the M8 toll)."

Debora, Amsterdam, February 2019."Precies wat we wilden voor een korte pauze om oude vrienden in Cork te bezoeken, gemakkelijk te vinden, alles zoals beschreven op de website, het moet mooi zijn in de zomer en we hopen terug te zijn om erachter te komen. Sterk aanbevolen."

Liam, Dublin, January 2019. "What a beautiful place. Clean, comfortable, and cosy.  Very spacious. Nuala was very helpful and accommodating. The children really enjoyed exploring the garden."
