  • 5 of 5

My friends and I have just returned from a glorious weeks holiday in this superb property. The lovely owners Pat & Kay could not have been more helpful or welcoming, they were there to greet us on our arrival having provided us with excellent directions from Cork airport. The area is breathtaking and beyond simple words, suffice to say pay a visit and see the beauty for yourself. I cannot praise the area or this wonderful property enough. The pictures on the site pale into insignificance when you see this property in real time, it has everything you could wish for and then some, wonderful setting and a well maintained house which has a great ambience, a real home from home, with very caring and generous hosts. The people of Cork have big warm welcoming hearts and we were made very welcome. Pat & Kay spent time telling us about the local attractions and had plenty of literature on hand for our perusal. The local shop has a good selection of food stuffs but we took the lovely drive to Castletonbere to the Valu supermarket which had everything you could wish for, while there we enjoyed an excellent lunch of seafood at Murphy's highly recommended especially the mussels. The Atlantic Way bar in Kenmare has the best fish and chips ever and if you fancy a romantic evening then certainly go to Josie's restaurant just past the turn for Lauragh fresh home grown and delicious food with a superb hostess, and fabulous views.

I cannot recommend this Lodge highly enough to do it justice Unyou just have to go and see for yourselves. Wonderful!!

Thank you Pat & Kay for a truly unforgettable holiday. Hope to visit again with my husband and family next time.

Beautiful home, superb location, lovely owners

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a glorious June week here with our two young children and their grandparents. The photos and descriptions do not deceive -- Pat and Kay have all their bases covered. The house is nicely appointed and immaculately maintained. There is plenty of space, even for three generations! The view is spectacular and ever-changing. The front garden is lush and lovely. The terrace is a boon. The silence is uninterrupted.

We had everything we needed, and Pat and Kay were most hospitable and obliging without being in any way intrusive.

It's about a 2-minute walk to a fishing harbour, from which you can stroll out along a rocky strand for even better views of the mountains to the east and the inlet to the south. It's a short drive (or pleasant ~30-minute walk) to Ardgroom, which has a shop-cum-internet cafe, a gas station, and nice little pub. There are mountain lakes, waterfalls, tranquil beaches, and lovely walks, all within a short (and scenic) drive of the house. Pallas Lodge is the ideal base from which to explore the Beara Peninsula, a gorgeous (rain or shine), uncrowded, unhurried corner of Ireland.

Thank you, Pat and Kay!

Nothing short of Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with another couple, stayed in Pat and Kay's beautiful home for a week this past May. Following a harrowing drive from Dublin, all stress was gone upon entering the home. Pat was there to meet us, gave us a tour, and even bought us our first beer down at the pub. The house itself is immaculate. There is easily enough space for three couples to come and stay and have their own space. There are 2 seating areas to relax in, but by far the most spectacular feature of this home is the outdoor space. There is a beautiful garden out back with a view. The perfect place to come and sit for coffee in the morning, or wine in the evening. The sheep, cows, bunnies, and the neighborhood fox will be the only company in this very tranquil space. Additionally, the folks in the town of Ardgroom are the most welcoming bunch. The store (Harringtons) has everything you could need, and the pub is perfect. Great food, and great beer...of course. From the house, we set out each day to a different part of the Southwest of Ireland, whether it be close towns like Kenmare, Macroom, or Castletownbare, or ones further away like Kinsale, Killarney, or Dingle. All can be reached in 2-3 hours, and then you have this wonderful house to come home to and relax after a day of driving. It is a "MUST SEE". Don't miss the opportunity.

A Wonderful Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Pallas Lodge was fantastic! The pictures and descriptions don't do it justice . . the home was very comfortable and spacious and extremely clean. Pat and Kay have thought of everything. There were 3 living areas (main living area with fireplace, the sunroom-surrounded by windows with lots of light and gorgeous scenery, and an upstairs loft get-away - off of the 3rd bedroom. It was a wonderful get-away . . very quiet and very peaceful. We drove all over southwest Ireland during our stay at Pallas Lodge (Pat had given us great information and maps), but the best of SW Ireland was the Ring of Beara - which was only just a few kilometers from the house! The tour books all tout the Ring of Kerry - which was very nice - but did not compare to the Ring of Beara. Besides the wide variety of scenery, there were no buses to contend with on those small roads. There were many places to hike and explore. We saw stone circles, castles, and majestic scenery. The many people we met were absolutely charming and very helpful. Our favorite towns were Castletownbere and Kenmare. We ate at family-owned pubs, listened to live traditional music, and experienced "craic"! The town of Ardgroom has a one-stop shop, Harrington's, for all your needs, including internet service. I would stay here again and again and would definitely recommend Pallas Lodge to anyone wanting to stay in SW Ireland - you must have a car to make the most of the area. Killharney National Park is less than an hour away and is also a jewel. My Mom, my Aunt and I are very happy that we spent the majority of our vacation time in the Cork/Kerry areas - it was the best of the best! And Pallas Lodge was an extremely comfortable place to begin and end our days. Orginally, our vacation plans were to see and do as much as we could with our time in Ireland . . but many mornings as we drank our coffee and watched Ardgroom bay and the sheep, cattle and bunnies graze around the cottage, we found ourselves pleasantly relaxed and willing to throw out our pre-planned iternaries for a slower, more enjoyable pace and really experience Ireland. Thank you.

Pallas Lodge enjoys magnificent views over Ardgroom Harbour, the Caha Mountains on the Beara Peninsula and the Kerry Mountains. It is situated on the scenic Ring of Beara and it is adjacent to the Beara Way. From here, you will enjoy long walks, with fine views over Kenmare Bay. The attractive village of Ardgroom is nearby (3 km) and it has a restaurant, a pub, a shop, a gas station and a church. Castletownbere (10 mls) is a large fishing port which overlooks Bere Island that can be visited by ferry. There are excellent stone circle and ring-fort sites near the town. These locations offer picturesque views of the Bantry Bay. Places to visit include the Ring of Beara, Dursey Island via cable car, Dunboy Woods and Castle, the Healy Pass. The Italian Gardens on Garnish Island, Glengarriff, and noted for its tropical plants, and Dereen subtropical Gardens at Lauragh. A visit to Kenmare and its many restaurants may be a good choice.

Golf: Golf can be played at nearby Castletownbere, which is a beautiful 9-hole course with the sea as an extra challenge. Booking is not always necessary. Kenmare also provides a challenging 18-hole course which is generally available.
