Dream House on the shore of beautiful lake

  • 5 of 5
We arrived at Ballycurrin guided by my daughter's dream of staying in a magical, castle like property and were not disappointed.
The house is on three floors with views of Lake Corrib from many windows. Beautiful staircase and pretty comfortable amenities.
The owners are a very nice couple that greeted us as friends to the point of a basket influding home baked scones!!!
We all hope to be able to return to Ballycurrin one day!!! My daughter wants to bring her friends!!

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the property for only three nights but we wish we could have stayed longer. The house is just beautiful : it is like living in a real castle! Everything is so incredibly immaculate and shows very good taste. The Young manager was very helpful and kind: we felt very welcome. This is really the perfect place to end your vacation with the best memories.

A Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent 5 glorious days at this property in August. Frank and Margaret were wonderful hosts, and we now consider them our good friends: Very gracious people. The Estate consists of three separate living sites: the House, the Lodge, and the Cottage, We were in the Lodge, nestled about 50 yards from the shores of Lough Corrib. The place is so peaceful and tranquil. We did not see a single boat on the lough our entire stay (compared to our Texas lakes where boats are everywhere). Frank and Margaret gave us a tour of the House. I'll just say it's most elegant, and the craftsmanship is quite remarkable.

The Lodge was very clean when we arrived. The photos in the VRBO listing accurately depict the property, although in my opinion, the property is more beautiful than the photos reflect. We would definitely stay at the Estate again if we have another opportunity to do so. Also, we would recommend the property to friends and family without qualification. I've never told owners before that they don't charge enough rent, but I did say that to Frank. A wonderful experience!
