Nile Lodge normally accommodates 6 people in the upstairs section of the house. There is an additional room downstairs that can be made available at an additional cost. This must be arranged prior to your stay. One of the rooms upstairs and the additional room downstairs are both available as a twin or double (super-king upstairs, large double downstairs).

The number of persons stated when booking must not be exceeded without prior permission, in advance. An additional charge per person/room is applied.

We strictly do not allow any parties or events on the property where non residents are attending without explicit written prior permission. We regret that this is due to insurance issues.


We love to welcome your four-legged friends, given prior notice. Given that the house is furnished with fine antiques we ask that only well behaved dogs enter the property. We will aim to look after your furry friends as best we can. We will need information about the size of your dogs in order to accommodate them with a bed that suits (small, medium, large). There will be a €40 (euros) charge per dog per night. An additional damage deposit of €500 (euros) is required, to cover against potential damages by your pet. Please note if damages exceed this amount then this will be chargeable to your card.

There are parts of the house and certain bedrooms that we will not be able to have dogs, to allow for other guests allergies. We also ask that dogs are not left in the main house unaccompanied. Dog sitting and walking available by prior arrangement.

If you wish to bring a pet a pet terms and conditions form will be sent for you to sign at the time of reservation.
