We asked some of our guests how they enjoyed their stay with us in Coolclogher House and here is what they had to say….

“Coolclogher House provided the perfect setting for a family gathering. Comfort, style, and a stunning setting. I especially loved the kitchen which, as well as being well-equipped for cooking meals for large numbers, was a natural meeting place for comers and go-ers. Other wonderful features included the always attended fireplaces, sweeping stairway and comfortable beds.” (Tripadvisor, June 2020)

“We could not have had a better stay! We have lots of wonderful experiences in bringing our small group tours to large manor houses on our tours, but the memories of Coolclogher House will be around for a long time to come. Mary and Maurice are perfect hosts and went above and beyond to make sure our stay was enjoyable. They have hearts of gold and are the loveliest people! The house is grand with lovely sitting rooms and a gorgeous entry hall. The bedrooms are large and they are all ensuite.” (Tripadvisor, March 2020)

“The best ever! I contacted Mary mths ago to to organize a family reunion.The level of warmth and hospitality offered was unsurpassable! Our stay was magnificent. Yes it still maintains its WOW factor but also remains like a country manor, warm and welcoming. I would go back there in a heart beat. I think it even made our family reunion go better! Which is a remarkable asset to the place. I could not recommend more!!!” (Tripadvisor, February 2020)
