We are stopping at granny’s cottage which is in the same grounds and has the same owner as Ballyblood lodge. Where do I start? The owner (Patrica).. Now I have been to Ireland many of times and I know that the hospitality is renowned.. but Patrica goes one step above!! We travelled through the night and she knew this and messaged us as soon as the cottage was ready (nearly four hours before check in time.) when we arrived at the cottage we was greeted by Patrica who went round and explained everything. The cottage was immaculately clean inside and out. The view from outside is stunning and private. The whole cottage is a credit to the owners. The beds where amazingly comfortable. We asked Patrica where we could buy a fan from as the Irish heatwave was uncomfortably to hot for our five month old baby and within five mins there was a knock on the door with Patrica holding a large fan for us. The freshly made scones and milk and butter was such a nice thought.
We are well impressed.

The lodge is huge and a really nice place to stay. Everywhere was clean and comfortable.
The owners left us some home made scones and some essentials in the fridge for when we arrived which was a really nice touch.
The location is good,perfect for some peace and quiet but not too far from Ennis,Limerick, Cliffs of Moher etc.
Would definitely recommend staying here.
This little gem is very accessible . It is so peaceful luxurious and wam . Plenty of places to see in Clare . The decor is fabulous and great to visit any time of year . The lodge is great and the cottage is looking equally as tempting . Will be back , highly recommended .
My husband and I were vacationing in Ireland with another couple and decided to make this lovely place our home away from home. We were definitely not disappointed at all. The facility was immaculate. Very large and lots of room. The bathrooms had great showers and toilets. The kitchen was fully equipped and the washer and dryer worked great. The Murphy's were wonderful hosts and helped us with any questions we had. They had some kitties that would meet us at the front gate every day that were very cheeky. One of the friends that was with us has really severe allergies and had no problems with pet dander or smoke as it was pet and smoke free. We highly recommend this lodge. It was in a beautiful area of Ireland with lots of places to go to from there.
We spent the last week at this amazing lodge, it is set up with everything you need to be a home away from home, excellent amenities such as washing machine, dishwasher, iron etc... The lodge was lovely and clean and each bedroom had its own wardrobe and plenty of space.
The gorgeous garden was very spacious and had a hot tub which was very relaxing and ideal after sight seeing throughout the day! The lodge is situated in County Clare and is ideal for travelling to The Cliffs of Moher, Spanish Point, Father Teds house, and many more must see locations! We are the best Indian of our lives in a restaurant called Bonfire in Ennis approx 12 miles away!
The owners are very friendly and on site if you need them, we could not fault our stay with them at all and would highly recommend to all.
