For centuries the enchanting beauty of this grand Irish house has been admired as the most lavish Regency mansion in Ireland. It is a place of history and romance, of tranquillity and great natural beauty.

It is the perfect place to celebrate special occasions with a versatile mixture of magnificence and intimacy throughout the house. Its comfort lends itself to family parties, its grandeur makes it a dream venue for wedding celebrations whilst its unparalleled seclusion and privacy makes it an ideal setting for business retreats. All these elements combine to offer the perfect retreat.

This is also the ultimate place for a very special house party, stepping back in time to an age of grandeur and elegance. The house remains essentially a home, albeit one designed for lavish entertainment, offering a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere, with staff on hand to look after you in a friendly but professional manner. The cocktail hour is back, ushering in dinner, or take a trip to the well-stocked cellar, guided by the sommelier, to personally select your wines so they are perfectly decanted and ready at dinner.

The elegant bedrooms, including some with four-poster beds, all benefit from luxurious furnishings, with fine paintings and antiques with comfort as the main priority. Every detail has been considered to ensure your complete relaxation.

A variety of bespoke services can be coordinated during your stay: lavish picnics awaiting you at the end of your activities, private dining and wine tastings in the Wine Cellar, lunches at the Tower, tea tastings in the drawing room, even, traditional Irish music sessions and sing-alongs. A new feature here is the costume room, containing outfits for guests to dress in period Regency dress. This really is the opportunity to dress to impress, and have fun at the same time.

With over 600 acres of parkland, the estate provides a unique platform for an extensive range of activities from fishing on the lake to falconry. There’s certainly plenty to do for everyone.

We like:

  • the warm Irish welcome
  • fishing on the lake
  • trying out the penny-farthing bicycle
