  • "The property is obviously very traditional, but with modern touches."

    It had everything we needed, and provided a comfortable base for our short break close to Dublin. Thank you.

  • "What a great cottage in a great location."

    Far enough from Dublin to feel rural yet close enough to the Luas train (Red Cow Station) that you can get into the city in no time - without the grief of dealing with traffic and parking. Friendly owner, cozy cottage. Lots of nearby grocery stores and restaurants. If you're tired of staying in a hotel and just want to feel at home this is the place for you. I'd highly recommend Borahard Lodge for your stay.

  • "The owner and her family couldn’t have been kinder."

    They were extremely helpful with directions, as well as helping us navigate trains, buses etc. We had a toilet seat that was loose and her son came and fixed it immediately. We needed more towels, Bridie brought them immediately. We felt safe there and would take walks on their farm. We even met their sweet dog Dora who we would always look forward to being greeted by when we returned home. I highly recommend their homey farm cottage.

  • "Borahard Lodge is clean, well-equipped, comfortable, and homely."

    You can hear the traffic from the nearby main road, but it did not spoil our stay or prevent sleeping. It is an excellent base for exploring the Wicklow Mountains. Newbridge and Naas have all the shops and excellent restaurants.

    Thank you Property Owner

    It is well equipped and beds are comfy and easy to get anywhere. We even took the green bus one night to Mooney’s Pub in Monasterevin and back and bus stop is in close proximity. Hosts are very accommodating even when our plane was delayed by 12 hours and we checked in at 2 am. Patrick came out to greet us. Highly recommended this purpose built cottage. We will book again for sure. Kate & PJ (from Canada)

    So many places like Glendalough, Russborough House, Kilkenny, etc. within 1 to 1 1/4 hours' drive away. The house was cozy, and the beds were comfortable. Our hosts were very pleasant and made sure we were comfortable at all times. Recommend this place and expect we'll be back next year!
