This is what some previous guests have had to say about their visit to Lakeview House & Estate:


Wow! Just Wow!

John W. Melbourne, Australia

I just wanted to tell you that we all miss your amazing home. It's been our only topic of conversation for a month and we can't wait to return!

The location is exquisite - the grounds are magical with winding paths and magnificent trees - my only regret was that because of our golf schedule we didn't have more time to wander!

We played several courses in the area all within 15 minutes to 2 hours from the house which made the location ideal for a golf trip.The house was the perfect size for 10 of us including our driver. The bathrooms are all updated and the bedrooms were beautifully appointed with wonderful fabrics and linens. The library and sitting room had fabulous fireplaces that we enjoyed in the early evenings after a long day on the links.

The staff went out of its way to be helpful and welcoming. I would definitely use the services of their cook. I was in constant contact with the owner in planning the trip - he could not have been more accommodating. He genuinely cares for the property and seemed to enjoy sharing it with people who appreciate how special it is.

We came as part of a group of old friends and were wowed by Lakeview House. The house was immaculate and very well serviced by the staff - everything exceeded our (high) expectations.

Frank M, Arizona USA

The house has a wonderful intimacy but with plenty of room for everyone to have their privacy too, which was perfect when we had friends to stay as guests. All the bedrooms were very comfortable and the owners have clearly spent a great deal of time and thought installing tasteful modern bathrooms and kitchen fittings.

My family and I spent 2 weeks in Ireland, the highlight of which was our stay at Lakeview House. We've travelled a fair bit over the years but have never stayed anywhere that had our jaws dropping as much as this - the views that change constantly from ominous grey to Mediterranean blue to red sunset are every bit as engrossing as the photos suggest.

David J, London UK

Thank you for accomodating our large retinue with such grace and good humour and for bending over backwards in trying to meet our sometimes chaotic schedule! Lakeview is a truly stunning property in a breathtaking setting.

A Foretaste of Heaven by Daniel McSweeney c.1890

There's O'Connell's famed home on the Lower Lake shore,
Where Nature has given Her beauties galore.
They may talk of Versailles and its artful displays
And how Lake Maggiore has the sunniest days.
But in rain or in shine, in hail or in tears,
There's no finer place in two hemispheres,
To where lake views and mountains entwine o'er and o'er
At O'Connell's famed home on the Lower Lake shore

Cold must be the heart and hard must be the mind,
That, at Lakeview, contentment and peace cannot find.
Not alone has each Season attractions sublime,
But each day and each hour in the passage of time
Gives new views and delights as we wander along
Amid scenes to describe which, how poor is my song!
'Tis a foretaste of heaven, I cannot say more
Of O'Connell's famed home on the Lower Lake shore.
