lough gara lodgeA warm welcome awaits you when you arrive at Lough Gara Lodge. We are located on a hillside location in the small village of Monasteraden, only 30 minutes from Ireland Airport West at Knock. The lodge commands unspoilt views over Lough Gara, and the surrounding countryside and is ideal as a stop off on a touring holiday or for longer stays. As you can see from the slideshow above and the interactive map below, we are very conveniently located to a large variety of high quality attractions, heritage centres, activity venues and parks, some of which are world class.

We provide B&B @ €35 pppn, room only @ €25 pppn and self catering accomodation from as little as €12.50 per person per night when all rooms are block booked (see self catering page for details). All rooms are en-suite and have their own TVs. The breakfast room is on the first floor where you can see the sun rise over the lake as you enjoy your full Irish or continental style breakfast. 

On the second floor we have a large games room / guest lounge, ideal for hanging out after a day exploring all the area has to offer. 

In the evening, many guests like to wind down with a pint in the friendly local village pub only 100 mtrs away.

Use the "Check Availability" option to enquire about or make a B&B booking. However if your preferred dates are not available in the calendar or you wish to block book all rooms for self catering, please contact us directly using the Contact Us form, as we will have the most up to date booking information. 


Explore the area using our interactive Map:

Hover over any map marker for information on the attraction, then click on the marker to find out more. The map markers are colour coded - Red for activities and Blue for venues and heritage sites. Use the Zoom tool on the map to magnify an area and to separate overlapping markers, and use the Get Directions area below the map to obtain directions between any two venues, perfect for planning your day.
