Stay in Ireland's most beautiful historic houses & intimate venues
Ashley Park House
Nenagh, Co. Tipperary
Ashley Park House has a magical quality that is particularly appealing. The avenue winds along the shore, through deep woods of oak and beech, until suddenly you reach the Georgian house, surrounded by tall trees, with beautiful views over a private lake. Inside, the rooms are large, comfortable and well equipped.
Fermoy, Co. Cork
Originally built in 1728, Ballyvolane House is a magical house surrounded by woods, vast gardens and parkland. The house has a charming, peaceful and homely atmosphere. There are three trout lakes and the huge gardens are impeccably maintained by Jeremy Green. Jeremy and his late wife Merrie, a fly-fishing expert, first opened their home as luxurious country house accommodation for fishermen about twenty-five years ago, and it now run by their son Justin and his wife Jenny.
Castlerea, Co. Roscommon
Clonalis House is the ancestral home of the O’Conor family, direct descendants of Ireland’s last High King and traditional Kings of Connacht. The family has lived on this heavily wooded 700 acre estate on the banks of the River Suck for more than 1,000 years–an achievement unrivaled elsewhere in Ireland.
Gorey, Co. Wexford
A glorious Georgian gem nestled in the heart of the beach area of north Co. Wexford. Minutes from the stunning seaside and beaches at Cahore, Old Bawn, Ballinoulart and Morriscastle; the villages of Ballygarrett and Kilmuckridge and just 15 minutes from the busy market town of Gorey.
Collon, Co. Louth
Collon House, steeped in history, is full of character and charm; its gracious rooms are exquisitely furnished with period antiques and paintings, retaining the atmosphere of early Georgian living, making this a rare opportunity to experience less than 1 hour from Dublin City Centre, and 30 minutes from Dublin Airport.
Clones, Co. Monaghan
Hilton Park is one of Ireland’s great surviving houses. Located less than two hours drive from both Dublin and Belfast amidst the unspoilt rolling hills of the Monaghan/ Fermanagh border, the house itself is set majestically within five hundred acres of woodland, gardens and lakes.
Ballymote, Co. Sligo
Temple House is one of the finest estates in the west of Ireland. The great house, which was remodeled in 1864, nestles in a wooded demesne, looking out over the Templars’ castle and Templehouse Lake.
The Quay House
Clifden, Co. Galway
Perched on the edge of Clifden Harbour, The Quay House is just minutes from the centre of this vibrant, engaging town. Dating from 1820, it is Clifden’s oldest house, originally built for the harbour master. It later became a Franciscan monastery and, subsequently, a convent.
