Luxury 5 star property now on the market. Price On Application.
Lough Corrib Lodge enjoys a truly amazing location on Ireland’s West Coast. Rugged mountains surround this 5-Star luxury lodge with stunning views over Lough Corrib.
Accommodation Through the front door into an inviting flagstone floored hall with doors and stairs leading off. The snug is complete with wood, a burning stove and an exposed brick chimney. Leather sofa and armchairs give this room a cosy, traditional appeal. There are 4 bedrooms, including 3 doubles and a children's twin room.
Step through to a large, bright kitchen breakfast room – the impressive depth of the original stone walls is fully visible where old meets new. Retrace your steps to the entrance hall and explore the right-wing; you’ll be amazed.
With an open fireplace and seating for 6, the formal dining room echoes the snug in its originality, leading into a modern sunroom where floor to ceiling windows wrap around you and bring Lough Corrib right into the heart of this home.
Lightly painted wooden flooring and neutral decor lend a tranquil, low key air. You can’t help but relax in this space. Two double rooms and a children’s twin bedroom free from gadgetry and distractions allow all generations plenty of space to rest and recharge under marshmallow duvets and crisp white linen for the next day's adventure.
The bathroom is large and airy: the slipper bath made for grown-up wallowing and with a floor standing tap & shower attachment makes it just as easy to cope with kid’s bath time. A walk-in rainfall shower is best for those invigorating quick bursts of cleanliness. Fluffy towels, hand soap and Sheepskin robes complete the hotel-style comforts.
Exterior: Enjoy the private garden, laid to a lawn that wraps around the house with space aplenty for al fresco dining, at the table for 6, or lazing around the fire pit.
At night, lights concealed in the foliage illuminate the BBQ and fire pit areas to create a magical atmosphere perfect for taking in the view that stretches across the Lough to the shores and hills beyond.
Things you should know:
The elevated position of the house, holly hedge and gate which keep the garden enclosed for safe playing and road out of view ensure your enjoyment of the space is not interrupted by passing locals as they travel around the Lough.
The self-contained utility room is perfect for muddy boots, damp clothes and those sometimes necessary washing and drying chores.
The utility room leads into the downstairs bedroom, which can also be accessed from the main sunroom. Either entry door can be locked from the inside for privacy and to minimise disturbance.
WiFi is available st this property.
History: There is a long history connected to the house. It was once known as The Old School House as it was the Principle's main residence for the local school, dating back to approx. 1900's and originally owned by the Tuam Diocesan Trust.
Two Irish books have been written here, one by an author Michael O' Maille wrote: "Naoi nGabhadh an Giolla Dubh", published in 1939, and another much later by Matt Hynes, who wrote a book on the apparitions at Fatima which happened in 1917. During the Irish War of Independence (1919-1921), the property was burned by the Black and Tans, and the effects of the fire can still be seen in the attic on the gable walls.
The house came into private ownership in the 1960s and has remained so until the present day."
