“Our relaxing break”
Reviewed 22 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Hi we just had a relaxing break away at Ballyare lodge and it was great to see just a cabin a lake and the birds. Me and my wife needed a 2 night break and my sister in law told us about Ballyare lodge so we decided to book and with luck we did and we will never regret it. As we arrived we were greeted by Gary who ushered us down to the small cabin and introduced himself to us then showed us around the cbin and explained how everything worked and told us ny problems just call to the house and he even got us a fresh loaf and milk , there was coffee and tea butter and cereal from last guests ( thank you lol). Gary was great company and told us about the lake and told me if I wanted to fish he has a fly rod I could borrow but I just chilled lol. Then we met Una who is a very delight full lady and we had a wee chat too ,we used the hot tub at night which was just the right temperature and and smelt of chlorine which Gary does morning and night , I have to say I have never been in such a clean and refreshing hot tub like these and as I have booked for after xmas and I have to highly recommend the lodges as they have a larger one too but for a quiet relaxing time you can't beat it, thank you Gary and Una will see you soon x.

“Perfect”
Reviewed 17 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

I've just returned from a 2 night stay at Ballyare lodge which 4 of us booked for the occasion of my daughter's pre wedding getaway (mini hen do).
Gary and Una were the perfect hosts, a really lovely couple who instantly made us feel at home, giving us a very warm welcome.
We couldn't believe just how stunning the lodge is and instantly wished we'd booked for a longer stay, in saying that we will definitely go for a longer stay next time.
We stayed in the bigger cabin which is fully equipped, it has everything you need like a home away from home.
Gary and Una couldn't do enough for us, Gary even caught us 2 trout in the lake which we cooked for our dinner. Where would you get service like that?
I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing break away. The lodge is off the beaten track but not too far away from nearby tourist attractions and shops.
The cabin was so comfortable and warm and spotlessly clean. And having our own private hot tub was pure luxury. None of us wanted to go home.
Thank you Una and Gary for your hospitality and just for being such lovely people. I will most definitely be back.
First class!!!

“Simply amazing! Would recommend to anyone!”
Reviewed 9 May 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Gary & Una were more than helpful for the entire trip. Having a hot tub just beside the cabin was amazing especially at night were you could star gaze, unlike in the city! Will definitely be returning in the future and would recommend to anyone!
