We spent a week at Carmel's Lodge in Kilmore Quay this month. The house is beautifully decorated and has a great layout. It looks small from the front but it isn't small at all. We were very pleasantly surprised. There is a patio in the front and back where you can sit outside if you want. I loved the sunroom in the front of the house with its comfortable couch and view. Since it was still on the cold side while we were there I liked sitting there in the warm sun. The living room, dining room, and kitchen are in one big, open area. There is comfortable furniture and cable tv if you want it. The house has two bedrooms with double beds so two couples or a family with children could easily share the house. There was private, off street parking. My only complaint was that we were not met by anyone who showed us around the house and we had a difficult time finding how to turn on the heat and the water to the shower.
