“Collanmore Lodge - Three times in three months” I thought it was time to write my review on Collanmore Lodge. I have been there 3 times this summer. I was there for two hen nights and one family birthday celebration. I cannot recommend it enough. My favourite part of each trip is the reaction of guests when they step off the boat and see the lodge and the location for the first time. 'Wow', 'Holy C*&p', 'Where did you find this?', 'Cool they have a bar' etc Ciarán was really welcoming each time we arrived and Paddy was so helpful throughout the weekend ferrying us to and from the pier. Catherine sorted out all the logistics from the office and made sure we had the package we wanted. We spent time in the water park last weekend and had a ball. We went swimming and paddle boarding too. The garden was perfect for the 6 kids and the parents felt that they were really safe. The house itself it great for hosting large dinner parties and the hot tub makes you feel like a superstar. I will definitely be back again in the new year. Thanks to all involved and good luck in the future. Clodagh

“Callowmore Lodge plus adventures.”Myself and my friends came here for a hen weekend and I can honestly say it was the best hen I've ever been on. We arrived at Westport house to do the sky challenge and archery and even though it was raining we had so much fun. The staff were helpfully and friendly and all too willing to help. After the activities we went to Callonmore Lodge on a private island and were blown away. It is so beautiful and idyllic and the house was amazing. Usually what can let a place down are the showers and beds, but I have to say the power of the shower was unreal and the beds were spacious and amazingly comfortable. The whole house was warm, clean and welcoming. A hug big thank you to Ciaran and all the staff at the Adventure Islands we really had a fantastic time and I would recommend it a hundred times over.

Where to start?! I suppose I've done a fair bit of hiking in Ireland and seen some incredible scenery, but I've never stayed in a place where the views were so spectacular. You could stay inside Collanmore Lodge and just soak up the views of Clew bay forever! A wee stroll on Collanmore gives the most incredible views of Croke Patrick (which was snow-covered when we were there) and the other islands. Words don't do justice to the beauty of the place. But it's not only the scenery, the accommodation is fantastic too. The wee bar is perfect - it feels so genuine. With a few people there and a bit of a sing-song going it's hard to believe that you're not actually in a bar in the middle of town. Then there are the activities... I'd never sailed before, but it was just fantastic fun. The instructors were brilliant. Everything equipment-wise was set up perfectly, there was no hanging around, we were on the water and sailing after a quick but comprehensive safety instruction. Special thanks to the lads (Richard, Nigel, Ciaran) - it's an absolutely wonderful operation. Yeah, so in conclusion... couldn't fault the place! We were just there for a weekend, but when getting on the rib to go back it felt like i'd had a few weeks holiday's  Magic. The projector in the photo is not included but can be arrnage at an extra cost.
