Carrie was very helpful with our booking and assisting us with last minute travel changes. A very easy process from start to finish.
We loved every minute of this stay. The estate grounds are beautiful and well kept. The castle and the cottages behind it are straight out of a movie. We stayed in a corner unit where the kitchen window has a peak view of the castle as you prepare your morning tea.
Our cottage was surrounded by lovely green hills and was quiet and comfortable for the four of us. It was very spacious and had all the furnishings and comforts we needed. We arrived and were greeted by Gordon who is a wonderful gentleman and so very accommodating. He had ensured we had fresh fruit, some biscuits, soda bread, tea, milk, jam and fresh eggs for the following morning.
We ended up having the entire estate to ourselves that week and were able to take long runs along the lake and pastures, wander along the pasture paths and befriend the menagerie of animals on the estate, tour the castle and relax and enjoy the life of a working castle estate.
It is close to so many sights and we were able to be at most of our chosen destinations within 30-40 minutes of leaving the castle. The town of Gort has some nice little pubs, a grocery store and other shops for your needs.
This is a perfect spot for families with kids of any age as well as for couples looking for a get away. We have recommended it to a number of friends already and we will most definitely keep this on our list of places to return.
