Moat Lodge is situated in quiet woodland in Lucan, County Dublin. The picturesque setting is the ideal base for exploring south Dublin County.
Moat Lodge is a 17th century property in a mature sylvan setting, yet only a stone's throw from Lucan Village. What may not be obvious from an external appraisal is the degree of space inside, with all bedrooms complete with ensuites. WiFi is available in all the rooms in addition to tea/coffee making facilities. Iron and ironing board available on request. Full Irish breakfast and/or continental breakfast is served every morning.
Tranquility reigns with an award-winning garden accessed from the guest sitting room and is a delight to behold. The front of the property has an extensive parking area for guests and overlooks a tranquil wooded area.
Located just a short stroll from the quaint and historic village of Lucan which provides a varied range of shops, character pubs and restaurants with churches of all denominations. Lucan possesses the unique Liffey Valley amenity including water sports such as canoeing and angling along the banks of the river, walkways, parks and not forgetting the Hermitage and Lucan golf clubs. The K Club and Carton House golf clubs are only 20 minutes drive away.
There is plenty to do in and around the historic Lucan Village. Why not start your visit with a short stroll through the Demesne, a popular recreation area along the banks of the River Liffey to the west of Lucan House. Combined with the natural woodland at St Catherines on the other side of the river, the Demesne is seen as a great village asset by the local residents.
The Lucan village core has remained largely intact, despite the scale of development that has occurred in the wider Lucan area. The historical rural surrounds of the village have evolved over time and been replaced with new housing and a resulting merge into the urban fringe of Dublin City.
The village includes a number of Georgian houses, including an impressive two-storey Georgian Terrace on The Mall. There are attractive early 19th century Gothic revival buildings, including St Andrew’s Church of Ireland, Griffeen Lodge and the former Church of Ireland School House. Sarsfield Terrace and Vesey Terrace on Main Street are also good examples of late 19th century houses. The Presbyterian Church and Methodist Church both date from the late 19th century and display a more robust use of Gothic Architecture, when compared to the earlier St Andrews Church.
