Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a really lovely stay in Jim's cabin on the lake. We were home to see family and it was close to everywhere and plenty of room for our family to come to us. The setting on Rahan's Lough is idyllic and Jim even mentioned he may construct a small jetty in the future which would be brilliant. Very well equipped kitchen and great bathroom and beds were 1st class. Really close to Carrickmacross / Kingscourt and the motorway network at Ardee. Could not fault this lovely place at all. Thanks for having us Jim. Joanne & Maurice

Owner's Response: The Mc Adam family were the perfect guests. I was particularly pleased with how clean and tidy they left the cabin on their departure. Looking forward to having them visit again.

Beautiful location, very comfortable - just idyllic

  • 5 of 5

We have used Home Away three times and all have been outstanding. In this case the cabin is made of beautiful wood that creates a wonderful atmosphere inside that feels like a Swiss chalet! It is extremely comfortable, well furnished, clean and tidy. The owner, Jim McMahon, was very helpful, friendly and a delight to deal with. The location is terrific - we had cloudy weather but with no "light pollution" I imagine on a clear night the stars must be spectacular. The countryside is beautiful, fun to see all the swans out on the lake. Very convenient for sights like Newgrange. Overall a wonderful experience - I would go back in a heartbeat.

Owner's Response: Nicholas brought his mother and daughter to Ireland to stay with us for three days. His mother was originally from Drogheda in County Louth and she was so excited to see her home town again and to show Ireland to her granddaughter. Newgrange World Heritage site and Powerscourt were some of the places visited.

A little piece of heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

Well what can we say. Just home from The Lodge and what a lovely relaxing clean place. David, David, Mark, myself and Oggey the dog really enjoyed our break. Weather was perfect and great fishing. Our first of hopefully many more visits. The Lodge was excellent and had everything we needed and knowing Jim wasn't to far away was handy too. Thank you Jim. Was lovely to meet you. The Geddis Family.

Owner's Response: Lovely to hear that the family enjoyed their stay at Rahans Lake Lodge. They are all fond of fishing and the numerous small lakes in the area was paradise to them. I must compliment them for leaving the cabin as clean and tidy as they found it.

Owner's Response: We are delighted our guests had such a good time at Rahans Lake Lodge. To add a seasonal touch we had Christmas lights on the outside of the cabin and a Christmas tree inside. Their visit coincided with a landmark birthday for one of the family.

Unforgetable Christmas Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Last Christmas, my family stayed at this wonderful lodge during our trip to Ireland. We came for Christmas with my 3 small children (aged 1, 5 and 8) and my grandmother (aged 72). Jim had a Christmas tree set up for us and lights on the outside of the house, to complete the holiday feel. He was super helpful, able to give us directiongs to all kind of important places - like the nearest places to visit Santa Clause!

The cabin itself was clean and well supplied. It was gloriously warm inside, even though it was quite cold outside.There was a great little yard for the boys to play in and a lake with some awesome birds right outside, which my boys had a great time watching - with the binoculars Santa had brought them.

We spent 2 weeks in the cabin and enjoyed every minute.

Owner's Response: We knew that our guests wanted to experience an Irish Christmas for the first time so we did our best to make it authentic. We do the same for guests with birthdays, anniversaries etc.
