Clover Cottage is the ideal place to enjoy the charm and tranquillity of our private 11 acre parkland, Portagaria Wood, right on the shore of Lough Erne, the jewel in Fermanagh's crown.

Discover splendid woodland and lough views from this luxurious, relaxing retreat. Stroll in an area of outstanding natural beauty with serene tranquil waters and rolling hillsides.

Relax in front of your homely log burning stove, with a glass of wine in your hand, whilst you take in the spectacular water views. This peace and quiet simply has to be experienced!
We have invested heavily in quality, so Clover Cottage is not the cheapest but its amongst the best. We guarantee a luxury stay in one of Ireland's Premier Cottages.
Rowena and her family have stayed twice and this is what Rowena says “Irish Cottages is a fabulous place for a holiday 'away from it all'. The cottages are extremely well furnished and everything you should need is there for you. You are welcomed warmly on arrival and nothing is too much trouble for staff to sort out for you. I would recommend Irish Cottages to anyone who is looking for a 5* self-catering holiday in beautiful Irish countryside. Rating 5 out of 5.”
Ruth stayed with her family and says, “This is a group of gorgeous self catering cottages in Ireland. They overlook and are right next to Lough Erne, perfect for launching a kayak and fishing. The cottages are beautiful, so relaxing and genuinely 5 star quality. The attention to detail in the cottages is amazing - the kitchen is better equipped than mine, the flowers and wine and welcome pack on arrival a lovely touch! And the kids loved it (there is a play area and lots of space!). We had grand plans to go out and ended up relaxing on the patio, kayaking from the cottage and not getting out of bed until midday (unheard of with children!!!). If you go, take a glass of wine to the hot tub. It's divine.”
You have worked hard, so reward yourself by relaxing in the peace and quiet of the beautiful Fermanagh countryside at Clover Cottage - your ideal five star luxury cottage that combines the charm of the traditional country cottage with a fully equipped and modern interior and beautiful furnishing. WiFi available so you can keep in touch with your world if you wish to, whilst hidden away in the heart of the countryside. Shared hot tub available to make your stay really special.
