Hidden gem
We are just back from our stay at Ardcarne Lodge and we absolutely loved it. Place is charming, with great atmosphere and equipped with everything you need. The Host is lovely, had freshly baked scones for us on arrival and fridge stocked with bread, milk, vegetables, fruit....so generous and welcoming. We are definitely coming back. Thank you Jim and Bernie for having us.

Ah the serenity.
We chose this place as it housed 7 of us and was in an idyllic place. No complaints there. It had every convenience needed. What spoilt our stay was the creeking stairs and beds. We woke each other up during the night.
