Rahans Lake Lodge is a lovely cabin located in a tranquil location by Rahans Lake; the cabin is very clean and has everything you need for a self catering holiday. The photos on the website accurately dictate all aspects of the cabin.
We stayed there for a week from the 20th to the 28th of July 2009 and found everything to be in good order. The owners Jim and Nuala are at hand (only a phone call away) and we found Jim to be an extremely friendly person. He was also very informative of the local sights to visit and knows quite a bit about local landmarks and the history of the area, which we found to be really useful.
Rahans Lake Lodge is situated right on the banks of Rahans Lake and you can sit on the front veranda or the new decking on the Lakeside to watch the swans and ducks. The cabin is protected from the elements by large leafy trees and the veranda big enough to sit out on even on a rainy day.
One of the best bits about staying here is the proximity to the N2 which takes you to directly to Dublin only about an hours drive away and making it easy to visit all the places you might have on your list. Belfast is about an hour and half away so it’s a perfect location for a base for travelling round Ireland and seeing some of the lovely sights it has to offer.
I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Rahans Lake Lodge to anybody. It’s perfect for couples or families and there is plenty of hot water and extra clean linen and towels are in the cabin should you need them.
The local shops are about ten minutes away by car and there are pubs, restaurants and three large supermarkets. So if you don’t intend travelling everything you need is close at hand.
The lodge has disabled access for wheelchairs by way of ramps at either end of the new decking, the living room has double doors so there would be no problem getting in and out.
One thing the website doesn’t show is the lovely large new lawn area in front of the cabin which is ideal for children. Another thing is that there are plenty of television channels (not something we needed as were so busy travelling round).
Our Thanks to Jim and Nuala for a lovely last week of our three week tour of Ireland.
