Clonleason Lodge is a beautiful holiday cottage for two with a lovely riverside setting. This holiday cottage is ideal for couples and is available for long or short stays, with any day arrival and departure. We have been highlighted in The Sunday Times in an article entitled 50 Cool Cottages in Britain and Ireland and are also proud to have received an environmental award for our gardens.
Situated along a tranquil country road, in a rural setting between Kells and Athboy, our 200 year old stone riverside cottage has been converted into a cosy cottage hideaway for a couple. The cottage overlooks acres of mature gardens, grounds and lovely unspoilt countryside and is an ideal place to relax and unwind.
The cottage has been furnished with our guest’s comfort in mind. The bright sitting room with its high ceiling and open fireplace has French doors which open out to the sunny terrace and the kitchen is well equipped. There is also a romantic en-suite bedroom. The cottage also has its own secret garden with a babbling stream. In summer the air is scented with roses and honeysuckle.
