We landed on Friday, Jacinta was so welcoming, Left us a little welcome basket, The kids loved the place, The Lake Lodge is on Lake owel, It is amazing, The kids spent the next day jumping off the little pier. They loved it, Jacinta got us a babysitter, Fiona, What a lovely girl. Could not say enough about how lovely a spot it is. We will be back!!
On arrival at the cottage we were given a very warm welcome by Jacinta who was very informative about the area. It was a cosy and comfy cottage - very picturesque views and enjoyable walk to the lake. It was ideally situated for us to tour round County Westmeath and central. We were visiting relatives and had a cousins reunion. We could not have wished for a better place to stay.
A family wedding brought me to seek accommodation in Westmeath. Lakelodge.ie is a charming, cosy dwelling set in a serene and scenic landscape. I often holiday in Ireland and tend to visit coastal towns. My stay at Lakelodge made me reflect on how much beauty the Midlands has to explore. A short drive from here in the rural town of Multyfarnham you will find an equally charming pub/restaurant (Weirs) for delicious food and drink. Go back and light the fire or go for a stroll around the lake. Everything you need including fresh linen, brown bread and an ample supply of books are provided.
We rented both the lodge and the barn for New Years Eve. Jacinta is a great host and was always friendly and accommodating no matter what the request.
We were a group of 11 friends looking for something different for New Years Eve. The accomodation was spotlessly clean with everything you could need- the welcome basket on arrival was a lovely touch. The Barn had the more spacious living accomodation so we used this as the place for everho e to relax. Jacinta helped us with arranging taxis into Multyfarham for the night-highly recommend Ryan's taxi service, prompt and cost less than €10 each return.
Our only tiny issue was the lack of signage to the accomodation. There is a hugely impressive driveway but it could do with some sign posting to the accom. Ensure you get directions from Jacinta before you get there!
Would highly recommend Lakelodges and look forward to coming back again.
We booked both the Lodge and the Barn as a group of 6 adults, 3 childred and a dog. It was perfect. Right on the edge of a forest and a lake with lovely walks it was perfect for us. We awoke the first morning to a very heavy frost which transformed the place into a winter wonderland, so Christmasy and beautiful. We used the barn as our base for dining as it had a huge open plan sitting/dining room area where we could all eat comfortably. It is very well equipped, comfortable and cosy. The Lodge has a woodburner which was well used during our stay. The owner lives closeby but we didnt need to disturb her during our stay as we were very well provided for. A welcome pack was available on arrival and a lovely bottle of champagne for one of the group who celebrated her 60th birthday during our stay. We ate out one night in Weirs bar in Multyfarnham which was excellent. Mullingar is a lovely town, bustling and with lots of interesting shops. The walks aroung Lake Lodge are great. Must be wonderful in summertime. Would really recommended this place, a lovely little forest retreat.
