Martin Sheen's grin greets you upon entering this award-winning guesthouse, which he declared his favourite spot for an Irish stay. Marty's not the only one: this place is so popular they've added a second townhouse across the road, which has also been kitted out to the highest standards. Room 2 of the original house has a lovely bay window.
Discounted parking (€17.50) is available in an adjacent covered car park.
The Lodge offers spacious air-conditioned rooms with Wi-Fi, desks, power showers, TVs and free tea and coffee facilities. All rooms are individually styled, blending beautifully the ambiance of the Georgian period with all the contemporary comfort.
Breakfasts are served every day in the spacious dining room, and are prepared using only organic products. Guests can choose from the buffet breakfast a selection of organic fruits and yoghurts, cereals and pastries, or hot breakfasts including full Irish breakfast, omelettes and eggs benedict.
