The Sheperd's cottage, once home to a local sheperd was left to disrepair and had been turned into a hay barn. The previous owner renovated it keeping true to its original design making it in to a cosy and warm cottage sleeping up to 5 people. The cottage boasted a large living, dining area with original stone wall fire place for cosy nights in, a kitchen with all mod cons and separate door on to the patio. Upstairs you will find 3 cosy bed rooms and a walk in closet. The highlight of the cottage is it's very own sauna, the perfect please to relax after a hike in the woods or a swim in the lake.

After spending my twenties living and working abroad in Bulgaria, Italy and then the last 9 years in Austria, in 2018 myself and my austrian Partner Bernhard fell in love with Lough Atorick and took a big leap, moving back to Ireland. I wanted to bring my experience in hospitality back to Ireland and share this beautiful spot with others. Not only do we have the Lake house and Shephard's cottage but we also keep ourselves busy in our polytunnel and outside vegetable patch and we also keep 14 very happy little hens who provide us with delicous eggs every day. We are so luck to live in such a special part of Ireland and look forward to welcoming you to discover all that Lough Atorick and the surrounding area has to offer.
