13 of us spent 3 nights at Bream Head Lodge last week and loved it!
The lodge itself is great, super clean with great bathroom facilities and the outdoor area was perfect for our big group.
A huge highlight of our stay was the amazing food and Claire and Marks hospitality! Every meal was beautiful and fantastic quality and there was so much. We brought nibbles with us which were certainly not required. Bring absolutely nothing apart from your drink!
We did the day 2 walk on day 1 as weather forecast was bad fir our 2nd day. The walk was certainly a challenge and our group was of varied fitness level but we all made it and were delighted to complete it.
Day 2 saw us walking in torrential rain and gale Force conditions. On a beautiful day the beach would be magnificent.
I highly recommend the lodge and its walks. So much fun.
Thanks Claire and Mark you were amazing hosts and were so helpful!

Claire took such good care of us..superb food and comfy accomodation...we appreciated the time and effort she put into making us feel at home and sharing info with us to help make our stay a winner. We opted to do most of the walks and felt justified at the end of each day to gobble and quaff happily.
A fabulous way to catch up with good girl friends.

Well appointed lodge with plenty of space to relax and enjoy. The host was very attentive and knowledgeable regarding the area and the walks. Transportation was provided to and from the different walks.
Do not plan on losing any weight from hiking for the food is superb and fresh! Claire is an excellent cook and baker.
