A typical Review

A wonderful place to stay

"This was a return visit for us to 'Gardenrath Lodge', a place we have come to consider a home away from home. The lodge itself is superb, clean, comfortable and self contained with lots of little extras that you would not normally have. The added bonus for us is that we are able to bring our canine friends too. We have been in both autumn time and summer time and both were most enjoyable. It is very central to many locations for those wishing to travel around but we would highly recommend a guided tour of Ferns Castle itself as we found it most enjoyable.
