The house was unbelievable, so comfortable and Margaret was very nice and helpful with things to see and do in the local area. I would strongly suggest staying at cloonis lodge if you plan on being in that area of Ireland
We had a wonderful week at the house. Margaret was very friendly and helpful and left us a lovely guinness cake and fresh eggs. The house is very spacious so although we had 8 people there it never felt crowded. The house is very well decorated and the bedrooms are large. The kitchen is fabulous and exceptionally well stocked with everything u would need. The kids enjoyed playing in the large field at the back of the house and in the large garden to the front. Sat. TV is available but wifi is a bit unreliable. There was plenty to do nearby - we went to Galway, Lough Key Forest Park, Roscommon Town (lovely food in Regans Bar), Glendeer Pet Farm in Athlone,the tour at Tulsk Interpretive centre and fishing near the bridge in Castlecoote. It was great to come back to this lovely house after a long day out and just chill either inside or sitting watching the sun go down on the picnic bench out the back. Strongly recommended.
As other reviewers have stated before me, this is one vacation rental that will exceed your expectations! The photos in the listing are lovely, very accurate as to what the lodging looks like, yet they simply do not capture how terrific it all is in person! First, there is Margaret, the proprietor, she is such a lovely person, so very kind & thoughtful, leaving milk, cream & butter in the fridge for us, fresh eggs on the counter from her hens & she had baked a lovely Guinness fruit cake for us that we all enjoyed too. Margaret knew that our visit to Ireland was for our mom's 80th birthday & she even had a wrapped gift & card left on the kitchen counter for our mom (which was much enjoyed by all!)! The kitchen itself was so wonderful for our mom especially who is in a wheelchair, there is so much space, it was easy for mom to get around throughout not only the kitchen but the entire downstairs. I could go on forever, but leave it to say, I would HIGHLY recommend Cloonliss Lodge to any group who is looking for a terrific place to stay in the Roscommon area of Ireland!
We stayed here last year. We are a family of four - 2 teenage boys and my elderly mother. My mother was delighted with the downstairs room which has had a fantastically designed bathroom for the disabled. All the bedrooms, but particularly this one and the master are huge. There is so much space for all. We even catered for an extended family dinner, which was a dream. 12 at the dining room table, and the kitchen was fantastic - all the utensils and pots and pans you could wish for. The Utility was a hit after going for long walks and runs in the surrounding countryside. We ventured all around, but only just down the round is a local shop selling most of what you would need - the larger supermarkets are found in the local towns. The owners Margaret and Paul were every so lovely - we even had Easter Eggs left for the kids, fresh eggs from their farm....... Couldn't wish for more.
