Family from Scarborough, Canada Aug 2016

I can not say enough about this little slice of Heaven. By far the best part of our 2 weeks in Ireland. Pat and Anette are the consummate hosts and we are so glad to have shared their lovely Lodge. Stayed with a family of 5 and were saved on the road by Pat before we even arrived. The rest of our stay was magical. A beautiful Lodging. Comfortable, clean and very relaxing. We enjoyed the property and the regular visits from the property dogs and chickens. My children want to go back ASAP. Thank you so much for making our stay special and personal. All the best from Canada.

Family from Princeton, USA May 2016

Our family (four adults) spent a wonderful and most memorable week in "The Stables" at Mt. Cashel Lodge. Our accommodations were great--everything you could want was provided: clean; beautifully decorated; complete privacy and relaxation. Day trips to Limerick, Galway, Bunratty, the Burrens, Cliffs of Moher, Ennis, etc. were easy. We found wonderful restaurants, castles, Alwee Cave;, shopping. This property is a treasure. We would offer our highest recommendation and thank the Shanahans for the very special memories and a fabulous week. Jane, Gary, Alexis and Jack

From Waxhaw, USA Jun 2010

This 2 bedroom lakefront cottage restored from a coach house on a lovely estate was clean, well kept, charming, with spectacular views of the lake and hillside beyond. It was quiet, with excellent internet access, television, washer dryer, kitchen. Milk, butter, bread, tea, sugar, orange juice staples in the kitchen made our first morning simple and relaxed. A local guide made by our hosts was perfect for choosing activities and restaurants. CDs of Irish music in the bookcase went with us on our car trips. The nearby town of Sixmilebridge is quaint, and the surrounding area is full of castles, scenery, and interesting towns. We hope to return, with more time for simply being in the cottage.

From Salisbury, USA Jun 2009

The Mt. Cashel Lodge is stunningly beautiful - as pretty as any weve seen. The location is conveniently near the N18 and N19 motorways, but well away from their noise. It is near several restored castles, crannogs, and gardens. The grounds are beautiful enough to make you forget driving and sit back and relax.

The Shanahan family is very friendly and helpful. This place is a gem!

From Cheshunt, United Kingdom May 2008

The Mount Cashel Lodge2 had everything we needed and wanted. A wonder atmosphere pervaded the Lodge. We loved the view from the French Windows onto the gardens and lake, the donkeys and the horse feeding. Bella and Buster were as welcoming as Patrick and Annette. SixmileBridge was in a good base to visit the local area. The Abbey Tavern in Quin served up a wonderful meal for a very reasonable price.
If you want to see Ennis travel in early on Saturdays otherwise you can't find a parking place.
What we particularly liked about Mount Cashel Lodge2 was that we could book mid-week, i.e. Thursday to Thursday which allowed us to travel back to Wales on the ferry on Friday rather than the weekend.

From Tilburg, Netherlands Oct 2007

Mount Cashel is an excellent stay near the airport Shannon.
The owners are very helpful. The lodge itself has all the things you need.
The view from the lodge to the lake is excellent (about 50 meters away).
When we arrived, everything that you would need was already arranged: some coffee and tea, fruit, milk, butter, bread. Great !
The weather i Ireland during our stay was also very good.
So we had a marvellous holiday and hope to come back to this great place.

"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."
