Romantic riverside cottage magnificently set in the heart of the Boyne Valley near Kells in County Meath. Elegantly finished, the comfortable one bedroomed gate lodge overlooks parkland and gardens which run down to the river's edge. A perfect place to relax and unwind with little to disturb the peace but birdsong, roses and honeysuckle scent the air in summer.
Nominated for the coveted An Taisce Ellison Environmental Awareness Award, Clonleason has also been included in the Sunday Times' - 50 Cool Cottages in England and Ireland.
The recently accredited 5-star cottage is within easy reach of Dublin & Belfast with many fine golf courses, walks, fishing and amazing archaeological sites close by.
The Lodge has three comfortable rooms.
The front door opens into a cute and very well equipped kitchen - dishwasher, microwave, cooker, electric hob and all the necessary tools for home cooking. There is a cosy dining area by the window.
The bright, comfortable sitting room has a high ceiling open fireplace and views over the lovely countryside. Bookcases provide an eclectic collection of books, magazines and music and French doors open onto a terrace and secret garden.
The beautiful double bedroom has an en-suite shower room and will hopefully encourage lazy mornings. The shower room has a power shower finished in white marble. The shady garden is planted with Sorbus and wild cherry, while the sunny rose garden, with an arbour and babbling brook, overlooks unspoilt countryside.
Guests are free to wander into the main garden which has been planted over the years with a mixture of native and ornamental trees and shrubs.
In the little outhouse, you will find garden furniture along with logs and coal which are provided free.
A Housekeeping service is available on request.
Very regrettably the Lodge is not suitable for children or pets and is non-smoking

‘The fact that we have stayed in the Gate Lodge at least once and usually twice in each of the last nine years gives some indication of how wonderful we think it is.’
