Dream Lodge in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

The lodge is beautifully decorated and kitted out with everything you could need. Stunning location, secluded and peaceful, with forest walks on the doorstep. We were a group of 19, and we had more than enough room, so it didn't feel cramped with that number of people. I can't recommend the lodge highly enough!

The location and house are absolutely amazing

  • 5 of 5

We booked Bunglasha for a very special family occasion as the house was large enough for all 18 of us to stay in the same place.

The location on the lake is amazing, the sense of seclusion is great for a get away from it all holiday. Killaloe is only a 15 minute drive, although we preferred The Pipers Inn, which is about a 5 minute drive. The food and prices were excellent and they happily accommodated for 18.

We had amazing weather during our stay, so made use of the barbecue that is in the garage and the beautiful sunset.

You can not fault the house for facilities, it easily accomadated all our needs.

We would definitely book the house again. The memories of our 2016 family trip will live long and Bunglasha is a part of that.

John was great to deal with from the initial enquiry and Pat patiently showed us where everything was in the house. We also met up with Pat in Killaloe and followed him to the house. You would not find it otherwise.

Annual family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival we were very impressed with the design and location of the property. Having been given a detailed guide around the lodge we were further impressed with the interior. The spacious bed and living rooms really suited our family group of 23 and could have easily accommodated more. The owner was very welcoming and attentive to all of our needs. From all of our experiences over the last 10 years on our annual family getaway, this one has far exceeded them all. We will definitely be returning.

The house and the surroundings were spectacular.

  • 5 of 5

Firstly the owners of the property were extremely helpful from day 1 when I was organising our weekend (including information and brilliant recommendations for caterers and transport) and throughout or stay. They went above and beyond on all counts. The house itself was wonderful and I would class the house as 5 star accommodation and better than most (if not all hotels I have stayed at). The attention to detail in the house was incredible. Stable items such as coffee, teabags, towels, etc. were made available to all guests. The addition of the 'honesty bar' in the sitting room was both unexpected and welcomed by all. Finally the surroundings of the house were nothing short of spectacular. The house overlooks the beautiful Lough Derg which is a stone throw from the house. There are also lovely walks close by. The quaint village of Killaloe was also close (11km). Overall I cannot say one bad word about this house or our stay. I would give 5 stars on all counts.

Wonderful stay. Stunning location.

  • 5 of 5

We recently had a wonderful stay in Bunglasha. Everyone had good things to say! The setting is truly second to none. The house itself is really beautiful, well maintained and fully equipped and was well able to acommodate such a large number of us so comfortably. The owner was a pleasure to deal with and couldn't be more helpful in answering our queries. Would highly recommend this property and all of the facilities it offers.

Everything about our stay at Bunglasha was truly amazing, from the moment we arrived until we were leaving ( upon which the family were trying to organise our next stay ) and that says it all, we wanted to go back for more before we had even left. The house is fantastic for large groups, no one got in anyones way every one could sit down and enjoy the surroundings without interruption, the age group was from 8 to 75 and it suited everyone, the facilities are great, plenty of equipment for all staying, it was lovely and clean and beautifully decorated and very well kept and presented. We would like to thank John and family for all the help and consideration whilst we were there, we hope to return soon. The Curtin Family, Dublin
