Beautiful Resort

"We loved staying at the Heron Lodges at the Castlemartyr Resort. The perfect size for our family of 6, and it had everything we needed. We would definitely stay here again."

Beautiful location with hotel onsite

"The rental experience was smooth, everything was handled through the hotel and lodge was ready earlier than expected. Beautiful grounds, with wonderful walking paths. We weren't able to take advantage of the spa as it was fully booked, so I recommend making your spa reservations before arriving. Drawbacks included needing to be careful about leaving food out because of ants, poor Wi-fi, and limited bath linen."

Great resort - small issue, quickly resolved

"Overall, good experience and just right for what we needed. Had water leak in one of the showers that leaked into family room. They were quick to fix. Washer/dryer combo was hard to work but we got it working. Rooms were nice and townhouse was clean. Resort is great!"
