Nestled between the rolling hills and only minutes from the coastline in the heart of West Cork is our delightful Gate Lodge. Once the residence of the gatekeeper to Muckruss House which is now our home and family farm.
The newly built lodge sits at the entrance to Muckruss House on the original site which dates back to the 16th Century. It is still very much part of local history which is why we have retained its historic charm while at same time creating an air of modern sophistication.

The space
There is ample parking at the lodge with room for 2 cars plus roadside parking. Downstairs is spacious open plan living with a fully fitted kitchen inc double ovens microwave, dishwasher and washing machine. There is also a separate dryer in the outside shed.
Upstairs consists of one large bedroom with king size bed and plenty of storage space . The second bedroom is much smaller with twin beds , and storage is on the hallway to save space in this little room. There is a bathroom with shower ( no bath) .
There are large gardens surrounding the house and plenty of space for outside dining plus a BB Q which is available for use when the weather allows .

Where you’ll be

Clonakilty, County Cork, Ireland

Your only neighbours at the Gate Lodge will be our herd of Dairy cows who graze the nearby paddocks, and can be found peeping over the ditch from time to time, otherwise barring the occasional tractor going about its daily business the neighbourhood is very quiet and peaceful. What is special about our location though is having the best of both worlds: less than a minutes walk and you will be surrounded by sea air and stunning views . We are only minutes by car from the magnificent Inchydoney , while on this side of the water we have Dunmore, Duneen Strand, Red Strand, Long Strand and many more.Our local Hotel is award winning Dunmore House which is less than one km away, and a favorite for weddings and fine dining.
We are only 4km for the vibrant town of Clonakilty which has so much to offer , in fact you will not want to leave.

Hi I'm Ann Marie, after three very successful seasons of hosting we are now looking forward to welcoming our guests to a safe and socially distanced environment in 2022. It has been a difficult few years for all of us but we will remain positive and hopeful of better and brighter days ahead and what better way to clear away the cobwebs than a few days by the sea in beautiful West Cork.
I had my own hairdressing business in our local town of Clonakilty for almost 25 years, so i have lots of people experience, but with two young boys quickly growing I decided that it was time to retire and spend my days with them , along with giving myself the time to pursue my other passions which include painting, interior design and baking. I love being at home , i love the countryside and the animals, I also love the sea and due to our amazing location I am surrounded by the best of both worlds . Our house is always a hive of activity as we also run a very busy dairy farm so never a dull moment. My husband John and my older son Niall are mainly involved in that side of the business .while our younger son John is a keen sportsman and plays with our local club in Clonakilty and Cork City.
We live in Muckruss House, which is the original old house on the estate of Muckruss. It was a labour of love to renovate both our current house and the Gate lodge, however it has all been very worthwhile and we look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful nature filled world surrounded by rolling hills and only minutes from the sea in a magical and peaceful little corner of beautiful West Cork.
