Clonalis House in Castlerea, Co Roscommon and Birdhill House & Gardens in Clonmel, Co Tipperary appear under the heading of “cool castles & character stays”!

Clonalis House

Clonalis House Castlerea Roscommon Ireland

To quote Nicola Brady when it comes to historical properties, Castlerea’s Clonalis House is top of the pile. Life at Clonalis House is all about kicking back with all the ingredients for a lazy weekend in the country. Expect the good-old fashioned hospitality of bygone days, roaring turf fires to sit next to and a charismatic ambience. Curl up with a book on a sofa in the library or borrow a pair of wellies and take a stroll in the 700-acre woodland estate. Clonalis House won the O’Flynn Group Heritage Prize, recognising the dedication to history and preservation of old Irish architecture. To quote Carol-Anne, from Clonalis House “it’s a never ending project”. An excellent choice for inclusion in the Irish Independent’s Fab 50, Ireland’s best places to stay in 2022.

Birdhill House & Gardens Hidden Ireland Luxury Accommodation

Birdhill House & Gardens

Book a stay at Birdhill House & Gardens which offers the ultimate mix of homeliness and grandeur. The perfect place to reflex and re-energize. Enjoy the welcoming warmth of this mid 1700’s Georgian country house. Nestled in the Suir valley with panoramic views of Knockmealdown and Comeragh mountains.

Explore the tranquil and breathtaking beauty of the gardens. Take the time to relax on one of the many terraces. Sip a glass of wine or dine al fresco around the fire pit. If you feel like a little exercise you might stroll along the river bank, be tempted to take out the rowing boat/kayak. Or maybe enjoy an energetic game of tennis. On a chilly day sit by a roaring fire in the drawing room or gather friends and family around the kitchen table to play games. Hide away in the library for a quiet read surrounded by relaxed elegance. Retire to the delightfully decorated bedrooms and snuggle down for sweet dreams, but be warned: the morning chorus here at Birdhill House & Gardens is quite spectacular. Oh! And watch out for Millie and her daughter Hettie, the sweetest of dogs.

Birdhill House & Gardens

Birdhill is a labor of love and a lifestyle choice for Yvonne and Robert. All the restoration and maintenance work tirelessly themselves and have designed and constructed a 4 1/2 acre gardens from scratch, without any help from machinery. Just three boys and a girl on their summer holidays from school. The result is a beautiful home and spectacular gardens that they feel privileged to be custodians of and to share with others.
