  • "Wonderful stay at Ballyblood Lodge, the photos do not do it justice."

    The rooms are beautiful and there is plenty of space. There is everything you need for your stay, plus extras. Tricia is very welcoming and helpful and the cottage was a perfect base for our week in Clare.

  • "Ballyblood Lodge is a wonderful place to stay, the accommodation is very clean and well cared for."

    It's spacious and the hot tub is a very good plus. The area around the lodge is very quiet, closet shops around 3km away. We have obviously stayed during the CV19 pandemic, although ROI is quieter due to restrictions we still had a lovely stay.

    we absolutely loved this cottage, having stayed in a fair few while holidaying with my son and daughter in law and family it's by far the best ever. The place has loads of space , immaculately clean and everything you could think of was un the cottage, plenty if towels for 6 of us and a great supply if cutlery and tableware which we find a huge bonus, beds were super comfy and bedrooms spacious too . The outside of this place is huge and gardens are so well maintained, hot tub was super clean and checked every day on the dot , would not hesitate to recommend this beautiful place and we were sad to leave Thank you so much Tricia for a perfect holiday

  • "We stayed for a week in September."

    The house is much larger and nicer than it seems in the photos. We had so much space for the children to play. We stayed in and cooked all meals as the kids are so young and the kitchen is fully equipped. We will definitely be back to stay again

  • ""Ballyblood Lodge" made a fantastic holiday home for the week."

    It's such a well thought out design, everything you needed was there, it was very comfortable and modern and the hot tub was a great treat. Tricia and Kevin made excellent hosts, nothing was to much trouble and they were both very welcoming and had good knowledge and suggestions of places to visit. The homemade scones, jam, butter and milk was a lovely touch when we first arrived. If we visit Ireland again,we will definitely be back to "Ballyblood Lodge" again! Thank-you again for such a lovely stay.

  • "Ballyblood Lodge was fantastic."

    Patricia was lovely, she was on hand to greet us & show us around. We chatted with her most days, as her house was down the lane. We couldn’t have asked to meet a nicer lady and we would highly recommend anyone to stay there. The lodge is comfortable, has everything you could ask for and more. The location was wonderful. There is nothing more to say about the property or location, words really don’t do it justice. We will be staying there again in the future
