Ready for some adventure this summer?
After months of being cooped up indoors during endless lockdowns, now is the time to plan a wild getaway, where you can walk, run, hike and bike to your heart’s content, then do it all again tomorrow.
If you’re looking for a base with some of the country’s best hikes and trails on your doorstep, Tessa’s Gatelodge offers all that with a hefty dose of luxury to come home to at the end of the day.
Just ten minutes from Mitchelstown, the newly renovated and refurbished gate lodge is set in the grounds of a historic house on the borders of three counties: Cork, Limerick and Tipperary.
It sleeps three guests in one bedroom with two beds and one sofa bed.
Nestled at the foot of the majestic Galtee mountains, the highest inland mountain range in Ireland, guests can walk straight out the door and into a forestry area full of trails or continue into the hills for some serious exploring.
The historic towns of Cahir and Cashel are a stone’s throw away and there’s plenty to check out locally, including some of “Europe’s finest show caves”, Mitchelstown Caves.
A cosy, comfortable retreat to return to, the gate lodge is fully kitted out with fluffy towels, luxury interiors, underfloor heating and Netflix.
You can book Tessa’s Gatelodge from €110 per night (two-night minimum) here with dates available throughout the summer.
