With walls stuffed with oil paintings hanging at odd angles, bowls of potpourri dotted about and the occasional Chinese ceramic, this atmospheric – and slightly haphazard – lodge has 13 grand rooms, with around five of them facing the water. Set in huge grounds against a hill, it's around midway up the gorgeous Lough Inagh Valley, 4.5km north of Recess.
