Hi I'm Nuala,

We got so much enjoyment in sharing our Gate Lodge with such wonderful and interesting people in 2017. We hope as many of you as possible will be able to return again in 2018.Thank you all so much for your generous comments.   

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."

Donal, Natasha, Liola, Sasha, Zurich, December 2017. "Thank you for a wonderful stay. Warm and cozy cottage. We will highly recommend your place to our friends and family."

Fred,The Haque, December, 2017. "Great place to stay for our weekend visiting friends in Cork. The Lodge is beautiful, with a lovely warm stove, and well equipped. Nuala was very helpful."

Barry, Dublin, November 2017.  "Thanks to Nuala  for providing us a with a great base in North Cork. The accommodation was beautifully presented and the host was very pleasant and helpful - ensuring that every need to was attended to. The location is beautiful - with easy walks into Castlelyons. Would happily recommend and will expect to be going back in the future."        

Erik, Quedlinburg, October 2017. "Super nette Gastgeber und ein nettes Landhaus mit wunderschönen Garten. War eine klasse Zeit. Vielen Dank."

 Garry, California, September 2017. "We had a great time. Excellent base for touring southwest Ireland. Charming property. Lots of room in the lodge. Large estate with great landscaping and gardens. Very helpful and accommodating hosts. We strongly recommend The Gate Lodge."

 Vincent, Paris, August 2017. " Logement très accueillant, très confortable, très propre dans une magnifique propriété !"

Gavin Portavogie, July 2017. "We had a brilliant time in the Gate Lodge. The pictures didn't do the house or gardens justice - beautiful, quiet and we definitely felt at home. A great base to see so much in the area and a lovely place to relax in the evenings. Fermoy is really close by for any shops or amenities you need and Castlelyons was a really friendly village. Nuala and Hugh made us feel very welcome. We would happily go again and all felt the tinge of sadness you get when a brilliant holiday ends."

Eoin, Dublin, July 2017.  "The Gate Lodge is a stunning place to stay. It is spacous and spotlessly clean. For us it was central for Fota wildlife park, Trabolgan and Cork city. As a host, Nuala was wonderful and allowed the children to play in the grounds of the estate. We will definitely return for another visit."
