We had a fantastic two night stay at Leitrim Lodge. We were two families that had two pods. Kids were 1&3 as well as 11&14.
Check in was easy, the email communicated everything necessary. It’s contactless but there were no issues.
The Pods were incredible. The word I kept using was efficient, every inch is used wisely, and it doesn’t feel like cramped or like you’re slumming it at all. We even had room for a travel cot for our baby alongside the fold down double bed. The beds were really comfortable, and we had great sleeps. The bathroom was lovely, good size (I’m 6″1), nice shower, warm water, sink, toiletries, everything you need. The fridge/crockery area/storage was great as well.
We had ordered the BBQ pack, Campfire experience and family breakfast, I’d definitely recommend them all. BBQ and campfire stuff were left in the pod, while breakfast was delivered with a smile in the morning. Sitting round your own private fire area in the evening, watching the sunset with the bbq, it’s a really, really special place.
The pods and field were great for the kids. From having snacks or playing on the steps, to running around the field, to enjoying the scenery, it was absolutely brilliant, and also incredibly safe. Even a few weeks later our kids keep asking to go back. We took a walk on day one over to the mountains, via the Leitrim Lodge carpark just down the road. It’s gorgeous scenery and fantastic trails. We also used it as a base to explore Spelga Dam, Silent Valey, Newcastle, Portaferry and more.
All in all I can’t say enough about the pods. We’d love to go back, either with the kids or for a quiet break for mum and dad. We were speaking to the owners a few times and they were lovely, genuine people.
