Adare – Thatched Cottage

County Limerick, Ireland

spacer line

The Gate Lodge Cottage has two generously proportioned bedrooms, each with one queen size and one single bed which makes for very comfortable living arrangements.

Snuggled in a wooden and lush countryside setting, Adare is widely regarded as being Ireland's prettiest and most picturesque village. Situated on the river Maigue, a tributary of the Shannon river, Adare (Gaelic name: "Ath Dara" - the "ford of the oak" - from the combination of water and woodland) dates back, at least, to the early 13th century. During its long history, Adare, as a strategic location, has been the subject of many conquests, wars and rebellions.
