The House

We have six rooms in the main house and all have magnificent views of the gardens and surrounding countryside. All the bedrooms are large, the beds are comfy and some of the bathrooms have enormous antique bathtubs. All the rooms are equipped with Nespresso machines, old-fashioned Bush radios, wi-fi internet access, homemade garden fruit cordials, a jar of homemade chocolate biscuits, as well as fluffy towels and bathrobes and Orla Kiely bathroom products.

Three of the bedrooms can be set up as either twin or double rooms and three are permanent double rooms. Extra beds and cots can be accommodated if needed.


We now offer a 'glamping' option in the form of bell tents for our wedding guests from May to September. We have luxurious bell tents and a Glamping Arc (a bigger pig arc for humans). Each guest will be given a 'glamping box' on arrival containing essentials such as matches, water, homemade elderflower cordial, a jar of homemade chocolate cookies, maps of the estate and a torch. The bell tents are fully kitted out with raised timber beds, super-comfy mattresses made by the Natural Mat Company. The mattresses are stuffed with recycled jeans and organic lamb's wool and covered with washable cotton ticking. The beds will be made up with proper cotton sheets, pillows, duvets,  and blankets. Towels will be provided. A tea-light chandelier will hang from the centre pole to provide light and heat, and the tents will be furnished with bed-side tables, chairs, coir carpet and ample lighting. You can actually stand upright inside the tents.

Full Irish breakfast will be served the next morning at 10.30am (just one sitting) on wooden trestle tables in the gardens or in the barn if it's raining. Luxurious loos and showers are located adjacent to the camping area. Please note 'check-in' time is 3pm and 'check-out' time is 12noon. If you are planning on arriving early on the day of the wedding, there is lots of room in the shower/loo block to get ready before the wedding and they are furnished with mirrors, good lighting, clothes-hooks and we have hair-dryers. We promise a fantastic and warm night's sleep in a stunning, quiet, country house garden setting.
