Another wonderful relaxing stay at Mount Cashel. Our boys loved every minute - an we loved the peace and quiet, away from "it all"


Family from Donegal Town, Ireland Jul 2021

Such a wonderful place to stay. We felt so well looked after and all aspects of the lodge were second to none. The kids loved the two doggies Harvey and Buster ! The area was fantastic with lots to do while the views of the lake were wonderful. Overall we had a magical time in the perfect spot .


Family from Half Moon Bay, USA Aug 2019

Had a wonderful stay at Mt. Cashel Lodge! Absolutely beautiful. It's a good home base for exploring County Clare, Ennis, Cliffs of Moher/the Burren, Galway, etc., but is also a great place to just hang out and enjoy the property and lake. It was perfect for our family. We absolutely loved Mt. Cashel Lodge and hope to return one day.


Family from Durham , United Kingdom Aug 2018

We are a family of four with two 9 year olds. We absolutely loved staying in Mount Cashel Lodge 2 and would definitely love to go back. The location is very peaceful and great for children. The owners, Pat and Annette, were very welcoming and our children became best friends with their lovely dogs. The properties look over a small lake (with an original Crannog) and guests have full access to the equipment in the boathouse. We took the larger boat out on the lake with the whole family but there are also individual canoes.
The accommodation was very comfortable and clean. We put on the stove every evening and used the plentiful turf supply in the shed beside our property. The location is very handy to many sightseeing options. In our short stay, we chose to visit Craggaunowen, the Aliwee Cave and Birds of Prey Experience and the Burren Discovery Centre. Overall, it was a wonderful short break.

Beautiful property that we rented while filming a project. So nice to come back to a warm and comfortable place at the end of a long day. I highly recommend this place for any occasion. The owners are wonderful and extremely helpful.

"Mt Cashel is a little piece of paradise in Ireland. The accomadations were clean, well appointed and offered every convience. The location was great for using as a hub for day trips. Pat and Annette were the perfect hosts, available but non-intrusive. Even the family pets added to the enjoyment of our stay. A mother cat and her 4 new kittens were our next door neighbors, residing in the carrage house. After returning from a day of sight-seeing, we would be met by Max, the family Springer Spaniel, waiting for us on the doorstep. From our bedroom window, we had a picture post card view of the lake and the Famine Village ruins. We were invited to harvest fresh vegetables from their cottage garden and enjoyed the most beautiful lettace and broccoli ever. Mt Cashel "made" the trip!"

"Excellent spacious accomodation with high quality furnishings. Delightfully peaceful location overlooking private lake, but still only 20 minutes from Limerick / Ennis / Shannon Airport. An excellent choice if you want to get away from it all. Really highly recommended - if we visit the area again, this will be where we stay."
