Located within the sanctuary of the historic walled gardens of the Castlemartyr estate, these luxury rentals offer supreme comfort in idyllic surroundings. The Castlemartyr residences are situated in a mature landscape with views of the surrounding parkland and golf course. One of the world’s oldest trees, the ‘Cork Tree’, is also situated within the walled garden area.
Heron's Reach Turning the corner, you are immediately captivated by the intricate beauty of the Estate's artist forged, wrought-iron gates. On entering, your senses become saturated with a deluge of sights and sounds transporting you back to another age. A serpentine river setting nestled amongst ancient woodlands, a unique canvas that once again forms the backdrop to a very different way of life...
The nine 3-bedroom houses have been specifically designed to do justice to their stunning surroundings with a contemporary design incorporating many natural elements, and with large windows framing the lush woodland views. With dining area suitable for six, an outdoor terrace with a tranquil forest setting, and a spacious open plan living area downstairs, cosily furnished, there is also a well-equipped modern kitchen for those who choose to cook for themselves.
The Walled Gardens Lodges The Walled Garden Lodges are set in the grounds of the former orchards and greenhouses with many of the features still present. The area is also home to one of Munster’s oldest trees, “The Cork Tree” located in the South West corner of the walls.
Laid out in two separate U-shaped areas in mature landscape with views of the golf course and the parkland, these spacious 2 and 3 bedroom contemporary lodges are flooded with natural light and surrounded by peace and quiet. Wooden floored and stylishly furnished to the highest standards and specification, each Walled Garden lodge has bright and spacious open-plan living, dining and kitchen area, lavish decks overlooking the grounds, and car parking directly outside each lodge.

We were a family group of eleven and we rented two, three bed-roomed lodges. The lodges were spacious and ideal for our needs. I found Michael and Andrew of Natural Retreats most helpful; they set up a barbeque for us and attended to other minor requirements. The amenities surrounding the Castlemartyr Hotel were exactly what a family with five children under ten years old, would need. First of all, we availed of the trip around the Estate with Roy and his horses and carriage; this activity still remains as one of the most memorable of the holiday. Both children and adults really enjoyed the experience! The hotel swimming pool was another firm favourite for our daily swim. The hotel had a good selection of snacks and meals available for both children and adults alike. We made a few trips outside Castlemartyr; Leahy's Farm was probably the favourite followed by Fota Wildlife Park. The hotel recommended two excellent babysitters so that the adults could go to Ballymaloe House Hotel for dinner one night. We stopped off at Ballymaloe Cookery School for their yummy pizzas before we set off for Dublin.(available Saturdays only)
A memorable holiday for us all!

The lodges at Castlemartyr are a fantastic base for families to explore East Cork. The lodges themselves are very spacious and modern. This was our second time staying in the lodges and we will definitely be back.
