Your holiday could be spent in a peaceful lodge, on a working dairy farm, with our grass fed cowA bright, open living/kitchen area, looks out across our large lawn, across the Awbeg river, lush green fields & up to the rolling Ballyhoura mountains. Two spacious bedrooms and bathroom with shower. Free WiFi. Extremely child friendly with sky fort and enclosed back yard. Ideal, central base for touring around all of Ireland.

The space

The living/kitchen area has a double height ceiling, with double doors and windows over looking the expansive lawn, across the green fields, where grass fed cows graze all day, out to the beautiful Ballyhoura mountains. Sit and gaze out at the rolling mountains, watch the cows come in, with which their milk is used to make the famous Kerrygold butter. Bedroom one has a double bed, with plenty of space for a travel cot, which can be provided free of charge. Bedroom two has a double bed and two single beds, with a large roof window overlooking the mountains.

Guest access

Parking is free of charge at the front of our thatched house, with across via a path to the Dairy Lodge. Guests will have full access to the entire house, with a front door and double doors out to the garden. You can use the lawn, the back yard and the kids have full access to the sky fort and enclosed yard with plenty of toys!

Interaction with guests

The house is right beside our house, not attached. We have a young family so we are home most of the time to help out with any questions, or to help you enjoy your trip. With extensive knowledge of the area and the mountains, we can help walkers/bikers with treks and walks. We can bring you out to the milking parlour to watch the creamiest of milk being extracted from the grass fed cows, before it is being shipped off to be made into butter and cheese.

Other things to note

The house is on a working dairy farm. Supervised farm trips can be organised where you can take a guided walk over the 120 acres of farm. We will also bring you to the milking parlour where you can watch the cows being milked if you wish! We also have a dog and two cats. We have pigs for 4 months of the year, chickens, guinea fowl and turkeys - from Aug to Dec! In the garden we have a poly tunnel and a Skyfort for the kids to play in, a goal posts and plenty of toys!

The accommodation is in a modern detached house, with a lovely view of the Ballyhoura Hills which are close-by. Anne Marie is a great host. Very quiet.

Beautiful location with lovely hosts. Gorgeous scenery and Anne Marie went the extra mile and showed our two year old all the animals and she had no plenty of toys to play with. Would definitely recommend for a relaxing trip.

We stayed in Ann Marie's place for one evening and were more than impressed by everything. She was a such a pleasant accommodating host and even had milk and freshly laid eggs and some other provisions for breakfast the following morning. There was lovely high ceiling in the sitting room and the rooms were nice and big. To cap it all, one of my friends forgot a pair of shoes and Ann Marie went out of her way to make sure we got them back. All in all, we couldnt have asked for any more and would highly recommend a stay here if you are staying in the area.

Fantastic accommodation in such a lovely location. Ger and Annmarie could not have been more helpful with their recommendations and organising late night transport for us. Last minute or plans had changed, Anne Marie was so understanding and accommodating. We will definitely be back soon.

I don't write reviews very often as I expect accommodation that is offered for rental to be a certain standard. As a result and after many years of travelling at home and abroad, I have only written previous reviews for 2 exceptional places and the Dairy Lodge is the third. I agree with everything that has been said in the previous reviews. The Dairy Lodge is all this and more. It ticked all the boxes for our short stay. I would highly recommend staying with Ann Marie, Ger and their beautiful children in their fabulous accommodation. You will not be disappointed. We will be returning in the future.

My family and I love meeting new people. My husband and I have travelled a lot before we welcomed our four kids into the world! I worked in the hospitality industry for years, so I have a very high standard in my listing. I love creating. I love bringing people happiness when they come to stay with us. I do not intrude! Motto in life - we only live once, make it a memorable one.
