This week on the Sykes Cottages blog, we’re taking a trip over the Irish Sea and concentrating on some of the best things about breaks on the Emerald Isle. We’ll be taking a look through some of the country’s finest beaches, walks and of course cottages, starting off with some of the best luxury properties available to book. So take a look and see which one you fancy taking a trip to.
Kilclare Lodge, County Leitrim
Tucked away in the peaceful countryside, just outside of the delightful riverside town of Carrick-on-Shannon, is Kilclare Lodge, a stylish detached house with more than enough space to comfortably sleep eight people. The property comes complete with a luxury fitted kitchen featuring a breakfast bar and dining area, both of which are perfect for settling down for a home-made meal. Then there are the two separate sitting rooms, one of which has its own woodburner that’s just right for those chilly evenings on the Emerald Isle, what more could you ask for?.
Loo Bridge Railway Station, County Kerry
Next up, we’ve got Loo Bridge Railway Station. As you’ve probably already guessed, the cottage used to serve as a station on a line between the Kerry towns of Kenmare and Killarney. It still retains a number of features that hark back to its previous life, such as the original station platform and signals that still remain in the garden. Inside however, it has been renovated into a stunning holiday let. There are four bedrooms that sleep eight people between them, so there’s plenty of space to sleep the whole family, then add to this the snug living room and you can certainly see why it’s such a popular cottage.
Lismakeera Lodge, County Limerick
But what if you’re after something that’s a bit more modern in style? Then you’ll want to have a look at Lismakeera Lodge in County Limerick. Located about 20 miles from the hustle and bustle of Limerick City, it’s in the ideal location to enjoy some peace and quiet whilst still being close enough for a bit of retail therapy should you fancy it. The cottage itself is a stunning barn conversion that marries traditional features and modern design perfectly. The building dates back over 200 years but you wouldn’t know that from the interior; with its feature mezzanine and and stunning kitchen, Lismakeera Lodge is the perfect spot to while away a week in the Irish countryside.
