“Fabulous”
Reviewed 4 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed for a long weekend; this really is home away from home. Spacious, light, superb setting, fun for the kids etc. the accommodation was all that we could have hoped for. Loved our stay and we will definitely be back. Highly recommended. Thanks Ita!

“A hidden gem.”
Reviewed 14 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed here for the second week in July and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The accommodation (house 1) was spotlessly clean and well maintained. Ita Kiely the manageress of the lodges was a pleasure to deal with and couldn't have been more helpful. The weather when we stayed was typical Irish summer, it rained every other day, so we only got to do some of the treks in the area but the lodges are a great base to work from as there is an abundance of areas to visit within approximately 1 hours drive. We would definitely visit again.

Our family stayed there for a week. It was excellent, the house was well fitted out and really clean. The kids had brilliant fun in the playground and forest all onsite. Ita the site manager was very welcoming friendly and informative. During the stay we did the lazydogs clay pigeon shooting , Ballyhoura horse trails , Donneraile house and mitchelstown caves. All within a reasonable distance. Had a great time very comfortable house log fire every night. Will definitely be back.

“Co. Limerick hideaway!”
Reviewed 1 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

person found this review helpful

We spent a very peaceful and relaxing week in the beautiful surroundings of Ballyorgan. We used the mountain bike trails a few times in Ballyhoura forest, which is just up the road; we brought bikes with us, but you can hire them there, and they have a great bike shop also.
The lodge was spotless, and had everything we needed, and was a lot more spacious than we had expected.
Ita was very helpful during our stay, catering for all our needs and giving us local history and information

“Excellent for walking and biking”

We stayed for one week in this beautiful chalet. Ita was always ready to give us tips and advice and even brought a pizza for our first evening.
Excellent place to explore the Ballyhoura mountains . The well signed loopwalks and the mountainbike track were nearby.
We had a perfect vacation !!
If you love to walk or to bike this is the place to be.
