Nestled in its own private corner of Wild Atlantic Way, in the heart of West Cork is our delightful Gate Lodge. Once the residence of the gatekeeper to Muckruss House which is now our home and family farm.
The newly built lodge sits at the entrance to Muckruss House on the original site which dates back to the 16th Century. It is still very much part of local history which is why we have retained its historic charm while at same time creating an air of modern sophistication.

Other things to note
The property is not gated and
the upper garden has an open unprotected stream meandering through it making it unsuitable for very young children.
We ask that children are at least 5 years of age and are supervised whilst on the property.

We are a WiFi free zone, but our local hotel Dunmore Hse which is only minutes away has wifi once you step inside the door. Also as there is full mobile phone coverage your own Mobile Hotspot will work perfectly

Location

Clonakilty, County Cork, Ireland

Your only neighbours at the Gate Lodge will be our herd of Dairy cows who graze the nearby paddocks, and can be found peeping over the ditch from time to time, otherwise barring the occasional tractor going about its daily business the neighbourhood is very quiet and peaceful. What is special about our location though is having the best of both worlds: less than a minutes walk and you will be surrounded by sea air and long sandy beaches. We are only minutes by car from the magnificent Inchydoney , while on this side of the water we have Dunmore, Duneen Strand, Red Strand, Long Strand and many more.Our local Hotel is award winning Dunmore House which is less than one km away, and a favorite for weddings and fine dining.
We are only 4km for the vibrant town of Clonakilty which has so much to offer , in fact you will not want to leave.

Hi Im Ann Marie, after a very successful first season of hosting we are now very much looking forward to welcoming our guests in 2020. I had my own hairdressing business in our local town of Clonakilty for almost 25 years, so i have lots of people experience, but with two young boys quickly growing I decided that it was time to retire and spend my days with them , along with giving myself the time to pursue my other passions which include painting, interior design and baking. I love being at home , i love the countryside and the animals,I also love the sea and due to our amazing location I am surrounded by the best of both worlds . Our house is always a hive of activity as we also run a very busy dairy farm so never a dull moment. My husband John and my older son Niall are mainly involved in that side of the business .while our younger son John is a keen sportsman and plays with our local club in Clonakilty and Cork City. We live in Muckruss House,which is the original old house on the estate of Muckruss. It was a labour of love to renovate both our current house and the the Gate lodge,however it has all been very worthwhile and we look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful nature filled world in a magical and peaceful little corner of West Cork.
