Lakeside description

Holiday home
Set on the shores of Lough Doon, this modern detached property is just two miles from Broadford in County Clare. With a spacious layout and flexible bedroom arrangements - two upstairs and two downstairs - the cottage is able to sleep up to eight people. To the rear of the property is a bright and airy sun room with magnificent panoramic views across the lake and the surrounding countryside, whilst other accommodation is composed of a large fitted kitchen and spacious sitting room with flame-effect gas fire. The property is well placed for a number of great fishing spots, as well as being within easy reach of the amenities of Broadford.

Situated 12 miles to the north of Limerick in County Clare is the picturesque town of Broadford. Surrounded by the wooded slopes of the Bernagh Mountains, this little town is a popular location for those who enjoy hill walking and cycling. It is also within easy driving distance of Lough Doon - an incredibly scenic place with a picnic area that is ideal for fishing and angling. The impressive Lough Derg - a large and beautiful lake with a number of interesting sites dotted along its shores - is also close by. Broadford itself is well placed for accessing the vibrant cities of Ennis and Limerick - both of which offer great shops, mouth watering restaurants and lively entertainment.

County Clare has so much on offer; boat trips, quirky pubs, seaside resorts and a great tradition for Irish music, all set amidst spectacular scenery such as the towering Cliffs of Moher and the fascinating landscape of The Burren.

A beautiful holiday home.. Spacious, comfortable, very well equipped, peaceful, with a fantastic view over Lough Doon. Good base for exploring the West of Ireland. Only downside was the exterior could do with a bit of T.L.C. and a spruce up. Not the easiest of places to find, could do with better directions from the village of Broadford.

The website for Syke's Cottages is presented very well, being easy to follow and shows excellent detail.. The cottage was exactly as described and the owners were very helpful when ensuring we managed to locate and enter the cottage. I would definitely recommend both the cottage and Syke's business model to all my friends and relatives should they also consider a holiday to remember in Ireland. Thank you.

The house is in need of a good clean.. Grass needed cutting and a neighbours dog kept leaving its poo so the children could not play out until we had removed it. It would have been appreciated if some toilet cleaner had been placed by the toilet to enable us to clean it. The house was damp. The owner made us aware of an upstairs shower leaking into the lounge. Good views and facilities.

We had a great time here.. The house really was more then what we had ever excepted, it had everything, was spotless, was extremely comfortable and had beautiful views of the lake. Very quiet and relaxing after a day out exploring Clare. Kids loved it and didn't want to leave. Would highly recommend

The light in the conservatory is very dim, making it very difficult to play cards or other table games in the evenings..

Cottage is well located if like us you want peace and quiet.. Local shops not too well stocked but plenty of supermarkets in Limerick. If you are into fishing lough Killgory is a must it is about six miles from the cottage with good pegs and good sport. If you are eating out Goosers in Killaloe is the place to try we ate there twice and the food was excellent and reasonably priced. Another thing to try is the Irish night at Bunratty castle this was the highlight of the holiday and at 45 Euro per head with food and drink included will not break the bank. There are plenty of places to visit in the local area with Galway an excelant place for shopping. The cottage itself is very spacious and the kitchen is well stocked with everything you will need if you want to get some food and eat in. We had a very good holiday so on the whole no complaints (apart from some bird mess from the house martins nesting above the front door but hey that's nature) So if you want a quiet relaxing time in Ireland this is the place to book.

The house was lovely and in a great location, however we did feel that certain items in the house were getting a bit 'tired' and in need of updating.. Overall we were very happy with our stay and the house was very comfortable for the 7 people in our party.

A slight problem finding property, but wow when we did , it was fab ,over looking a lake and in its own grounds, it was perfect, all you needed was on site , I would say it was the best of its kind I had stayed at, downside was no vacuum cleaner which was odd, and with a build up of dead fly's it was bad. Sorry to add one final negative, but I would suggest that health and safy would require you to ditch all food condiments left by each visitor (OUT OF DATE)

The house is tasteful, really very well ordered and decorated. It was real delight to visit a part of Ireland and we hope to return.

The House was in a perfect location. I would recommend this house to anyone, winter and summer, doing the West of Ireland or Mid Western tourist trails. The house was warm and the beds very comfortable with a well stocked kitchen. A great house for entertaining and a wonderful view of the lake. I can see us renting this again for winter vacations in particular. Thank you again to the caretakers.

A very spacious house with an amazing view of the lake from the conservatory. Very quiet and peaceful. Loved being in a house that suited our varied family age range.

The one and only negative thing I could say was initially the cottage was a little hard to find otherwise everything was wonderful. The views, tranquil surroundings, well appointed rooms and tasteful decor. The cottage is ideally suited to touring we managed Galway, Limerick and surrounding areas easily and the cottage was comfortable and welcoming to return to for a relaxing meal and wind down. We would definitely return and can thoroughly recommend for families or groups of friends.

This was our second visit to Lakeside. The house is very comfortable with everything one could need for a relaxing stay. The location is lovely with wonderful views across the lake. We had a minor problem with the heating which the owner was quick to resolve for us.

The house was extremely comfortable and the owner very helpful and friendly. This was our second visit and I would have no hesitation in recommending the property to family and friends.
