Visited for a birthday party and the Manor and grounds, lit up with braziers, was magnificent. The starter comprised a cold platter for the table and consisted of cold meats, salmon, cheeses, sun dried tomatoes etc, etc all beautifully presented and delicious. My wife and I had beef for the main course and I can honestly say it was one...

Attended a family wedding in this venue. Absolutely beautiful setting by a lake . The food was top class and varied. My major gripe with this venue is the staff particularly the younger ones lifting and taking away your drinks before you were finished with it. This happened quite frequently and needs to be knocked on the head. Otherwise superb...

Beautiful site with plenty of space on every pitch. They only cater for RV's - no caravans allowed. There is Glamping on the site which looks amazing as the tents are placed sporadically around to optimize the views from their front porch. The scenery is stunning with fantastic views all around from the water front. We had dinner in The...

We stayed on a Sunday night, we thought there was a hotel beside the campsite, unfortunately this wasn't the case. We were shown to our tent which was amazing two bedrooms with lighting.

Many thanks for the review and delighted you enjoyed your stay. The Manor only opens for weddings so not available outside of those times. The Boathouse Bistro serves food from 12.30-9pm daily and we do have a screen in Shutters on the Pier which did, i thing, show the final. We usually do open it for such games. We have...

We stayed one night in our campervan on the smallish area provided, a lovely walled garden spot just across a lawn from the Manor. Pitches were a good size and level with good access to the very luxurious facilities. E30 is quite expensive but if you make the most of washing, laundry etc it compensates! The location is lovely, even...

Many thanks Ian for your review. Delighted you enjoyed your stay and hope the rest of your holidays were enjoyable. The Planning restrictions for Motorhome sites in Ireland is truly ridiculous to say the least. You have no idea what is involved or the cost for such a short season hence the reason for so few. It is a shame...

The dilemma of the wine glasses. We have stemmed wine glasses in our bars and available for weddings on request. We use non stemmed wine glasses for weddings as they are different.
