“Excellent base for fishing holiday”
Reviewed 22 September 2018 for a stay in September 2018

Outstanding accommodation and base for our fishing holiday. Superb clean facilities and good fishing within a short drive. Fiona and Peter very friendly - scones and tea waiting for us on arrival. 2nd time there and already planning our 3rd visit. Looking forward to next year. Cannot recommend this accommodation enough. Thanks Fiona.

“Awesome...we will return!”

Our family, with cousins from New Hampshire and Connecticut, just spent a memory-making week together at this amazing home and adjacent detached apartment. The photos, while lovely, do not come close to revealing this home’s many virtues. It is incredibly spacious, exquisitely decorated, and exudes warmth. And, you cannot imagine how gorgeous the setting is, whether rainy, misty, or sunny. (We arrived to a rainbow and fresh-baked scones!)

The main home, which was a gamekeeper’s cottage, has its 1800’s charm with the most up-to-date amenities, and the addition is seamless. There is a beautiful living/dining room with fireplace, which opens on to a large patio. (Those of us over thirty dined outside when it wasn’t raining and the younger ones inside :) The cows were right there in the field and it lent a spirit of true Ireland to our stay…plus a local cuddly, cute kitty that hung around who we think is really Professor McGonegal! Her ability to apparate into the house despite closed doors was Harry Potter-esque.

There is a wonderful fully-equipped kitchen, five lovely, comfortable bedrooms, washer dryer, and separate game room with pool table/air hockey. The apartment is really it’s own self-sustaining cottage and just as terrific.

Add to the above physical description, the most lovely owner, Fiona, and you have the makings for a perfect holiday. Even with my cousin’s previous visits and family in the area, she added so many wonderful ideas and was there for anything we needed…which really was minimal since she had already thought of it!

This was a gathering of fourteen of us from the States, visiting our amazing Monaghan family so we will be back. Loved, loved, loved Lake Muckno Lodge as our home away from home.

Thank you Fiona and family!

“I just want to go back!”
Reviewed 12 July 2018 for a stay in July 2018

A group of us stayed here for 2 nights for my 40th and I have to say we all literally fell in love with this Cottage!

It is bright, airy and spacious, modern yet full of olde worlde charm. Fiona was the perfect host from beginning to end, with lovely fresh scones and jam there on our arrival.

We spent most of our time out on the expansive patio overlooking the hills and lake.

We all promised that either as a group, or separately with our own families that we would return!

A really lovely idyllic spot for a weekend of pure relaxation.

“Muckno Lodge”
Reviewed 20 June 2018 for a stay in June 2018

A great place to stay, very peaceful and relaxing lodge which is clean, high spec and has lots of character. We chose it as a base for fishing Muckno Lough and wasn't disappointed with easy access and plenty of room for our group. Even Outbuilding with fridges for bait and tackle storage. I definitely recommend this for anybody looking for quality, self catering accommodation. The small town of Castleblayney close by with it true Irish pubs and friendly people. I will be coming back ☘️ or ️ with the stunning Concra wood golf course very close by with beautiful views over looking Lough Muckno.
