Why stay in or rent a private historic house?

You will experience Ireland’s rich architectural history, culture and heritage while enjoying the finest food and warmest hospitality in luxurious surroundings.

Our collection of beautiful historic town and country houses are located all throughout Ireland, both North and South. Guests can stay on a B&B (bed & breakfast) basis or exclusively rent an entire country manor (or townhouse) for family holidays, weddings, corporate events or special occasions.

All privately owned, individuality, authenticity and passion abound in these houses, many of which have been in the owners families for hundreds of years and many generations. The spirit of the Irish country house has always been formidable, strong and at times a little eccentric, particularly among these rare and valiant survivors!

Our houses are as far removed from conventional hotels in Ireland as could be imagined, and give visitors an opportunity to explore the best of Irish countryside, towns and cities. They range from Ireland’s and Northern Ireland’s grandest Georgian buildings to charming rural rectories but are united by their owner’s commitments to traditional hospitality. In most houses, guests can eat together at one big table, which can be great fun and gives you a chance to enjoy the company of other guests, and often your hosts too.

Most of our houses have up to 6 bedrooms or more and are ideal for family gatherings, house parties and rentals for a group, individuals or special occasions.
