South Lodge


This very attractive compact brick building stands just inside an impressive gateway right next to the golf course, beyond which is the sea. It has been the family home of Pat and Colin Burton for the last thirty years, and just three years ago they started a bed & breakfast business. To offer the best accommodation possible they cleverly redesigned the house, creating a small wing for themselves and rebuilding the first floor - which now provides four charming bedrooms. The bedrooms are spacious, furnished and decorated with simplicity, and have beamed pitched, attic like ceilings. Some of the rooms overlook the golf course, and three are en suite. They have a TV, hairdryer, tea and coffee, books and packs of cards. There is a sitting area in the breakfast room, which has views of the golf course beyond the small attractive garden, and a nice place to enjoy fine weather is on the patio in front of the house.

South Lodge, built in 1873, was a gate lodge to the James family home, of distiller fame, now the Portmarnock Links Hotel. This is a fabulous location for the golf lover, has great access to Dublin (bus stop just outside) and the airport, and the lovely sandy beach of Portmarnock is two minutes away. No credit cards, smoking or pets.
