Superhosts are responsive, active, and highly-rated hosts who provide a shining example for other hosts, and extraordinary experiences for guests."



I'm Nuala, We got so much enjoyment in sharing our Gate Lodge with such wonderful and interesting people in 2018. We hope as many of you as possible will be able to return again in 2019.Thank you all so much for your generous comments.


Jenny, Linconshire, July 2019. "Total peace and quite. Great hosts. Good location for sightseeing and fishing."

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."

Emma, Naas, December 2018. "Lovely spacious comfortable house, perfect for us as a family of four. Great to have the stove lit every evening. Wonderful gardens and outdoor space. Nuala and Hugh were excellent, friendly hosts. Highly recommend"
Caroline, London, December 2018. "We enjoyed our stay at the Gate Lodge which is rurally located and a perfect get away. The Lodge is stocked with everything you need and the hosts are attentive and hospitable. Would definitely book again."

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."

Sandy, Port Hakesbury, September 2018. "Great place to stay, central to all south Ireland. Friendly and accommodating host and hostess. Quiet location with beautiful estate gardens."

Damon, Willich, August 2018. "We stayed here for five nights as part of our trip around Ireland (group was myself, my wife and two children 4 & 2). The accommodation was brilliant - one of the best we have stayed at as family."

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."
