Open all year round, Bruckless House Gate Lodge is available to rent for self-catering holidays. Situated on 18 acres of parkland, the Gate Lodge is surrounded by its own garden just off the private driveway leading to Bruckless House. Guests can stroll down the avenue to reach the rocky shoreline of Bruckless Bay. They are always welcome to call at Bruckless House with its informal gardens and cobbled yard, where poultry wander between the Connemara Ponies.

The Gate Lodge is comprised of four rooms in total. Bruckless Gate Lodge has an open plan living room and kitchen with an open fireplace, a full-sized bathroom and two bedrooms. There is a television set provided and all rooms have electric storage heating. Free wireless Internet connection is also available to guests at Bruckless Gate Lodge.

Bruckless House was built in mid-18th century by a Plantation family, Nesbitt, but quickly passed into the hands of an Irish family, the Cassidys. It remained with them right into the 20th century. Legend has it that a Gate Lodge was built along with the House and that it was located at the then main entrance, near the River Stank off the present-day main road. Today there are no signs of this building - it was probably demolished to make way for the tracks of the County Donegal Railway. By 1894 the main entrance had been removed to the present location, using a bridge to cross the railway, but no Gate Lodge was built until the new century.

“Just home from a 4 day break in this cosy cottage, had everything we needed, beds lovely and comfortable, only downside where the steps into the garden as I'm limited mobility, but owner told me she's having a rail made which should help enormously. Great Central location for sightseeing all round the area”

TripAdvisor Review, September 2021

“We have been returning to Bruckless Gate Lodge for at least 18 years. It's our home from home! The Lodge is lovely and cosy with it's own garden where we spend lots of time (weather permitting) reading, playing cards etc and then there are the horses to go and see everyday. Then you can walk around the beautiful gardens of Bruckless House and along the shoreline. There is plenty to see and do in the local area but after so many years we just enjoy the peace and quiet to recharge our batteries. We now book the same week one year to the next, would recommend it to anyone but just don't take our week please. ”
