Love love love!!

  • 5 of 5

Pat was so kind and attentive! All was clean and complete. Everything we needed was there. It was the perfect location for touring the Cliffs, Limerick, Adare and even running to Dingle for a day trip. Pat even helped us with scheduling the ferry for the Aran Islands making things easier and faster for us. I would tell anyone and everyone to stay here!

Romantic ambience, exceptional comforrt, fine host

  • 5 of 5

Pat and Maura have done a super job of restoring and maintaining this 200-year-old stone cottage, down to the flowers in the window boxes. We welcomed having a separate kitchen (the best-equipped we've encountered in a vacation rental) and a second bedroom. (Although there were only two of us, it was handy for storing and repacking luggage.) Just sitting at the picnic table and enjoying this lovely spot -- rural but only about 20 minutes from the heart of Limerick) occupied much of our time. We wished we'd planned for a week at Coolbeg Lodge, rather than three nights. We would heartily recommend this property to family and friends. The photos with the listing don't do it justice!

A lovely cottage on the outskirts of Limerick city

  • 4 of 5

Our family of five (2 adults and three kids) stayed here for 3 nights. It's only approx 25 mins drive into Limerick and was easy to find. The owner Pat welcomed us with a well stocked cottage including fresh milk and homemade buns. The cottage was spacious and well laid out. The children were pleased to have their own beds to sleep in. It's worth mentioning that the beds were very comfortable, with excellent mattresses and even electric blankets!. One thing worth noting is that as it is an old property it can get quite cold at night and we often needed to turn on the heating to keep warm. The electricity is extra and our three night stay cost us an additional €20.

A Little Slice of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd time we have stayed at Coolbeg. The first time was with the previous owner & we were delighted to see that, although Pat & Maura have made changes, they kept the wonderful charm of the place & have made the gardens even more beautiful than we remembered. Pat was very welcoming & made us tea & homemade banana bread to enjoy while we waited for the floors to dry in the cottage. It was a great way to decompress after the long flight from the States & we felt so at home. The cottage was perfect for venturing out to sightsee, especially into Limerick. We were there to renew our vows on our 36th wedding anniversary at St John's Cathedral. My husband's grandparents were married there in 1913, so this was a very special event. Pat & Maura made it even more special by making me a bouquet from the lovely flowers in their garden! We came back from a day in Listowell & there on the table outside the cottage was a basket of our laundry & the jar with the bouquet. What a wonderful surprise! When we were leaving, I told Pat to please stay in the business because we will definitely be back!!!

Surprisingly Hospitable

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent about four nights at the self serve one bedroom cottage. From the momment we arrived we could not have been treated better. We were welcomed at nine o'clock at night with coffe, tea, and homemade muffins. Even though we had rented a self service, Pat was quick to see we weren't as well prepared as we should have been and made the extra effort to have an absolutely complete and delicious breakfast for us ready in the morning. He was so generous so as to put my laundry on the line for me while I was away and was always on hand when we needed anything but always respectful of our privacy. The most amazing part was as we were just getting ready to leave, we got a flat tire on the way back. Even though we had already checked out , he came out to where we were and was ready to help us and was so compassionate. He gave us extra towels and let my husband take another shower so he could be refreshed for our trek back to Dublin. Thank you Pat! Well worth your time and money to have a great experience.
