Superb home-grown food in a genuine family mansion (ancestors are everywhere) with flags, stags, antiques and croquet. Amazing rooms, too

Coopershill is out of this world. The long drive winds through beautiful parkland to award-winning, eco-friendly formal gardens where a muster of peacocks roams resplendent. The house is one of the most handsome and distinguished examples of Irish Georgian. Despite these fine looks, the welcome couldn't be warmer: this is a well-loved home buzzing with activity, not a grand hotel. Simon and Alice the spaniel greet you with friendly smiles before inviting you into the awesome stone-floored hall. Pause a moment and look up at the flags, the stags, the marble figurines, the old parchment map of Ireland. That's just the hall! There are ancestors, antlers and antiques everywhere, fresh flowers and a chaise longue in every room, amazing high old beds with oh-so-fitting sheets, blankets and eiderdowns. Top-floor bedrooms look over copper beech and croquet lawn to the River Unsin and the four-poster room with huge corner windows is stunning. Great bathrooms, too: the 1900s canopied bath in its green-tiled grotto will knock your socks off.

Local points of interest from
The O'Hara Family:

  • This is WB Yeats country with landmarks from the poets writing close by. Fancy a paddle out to the Lake Isle of Inishfree?
  • Hill top neolithic tombs make for fascinating hikes and we can pack you a delicious picnic so you can lunch while enjoying spectacular scenery.
  • Lisadell, the stately home of Constance Markiewz and frequent haunt of WB Yeats is nearby. Tours of the house and gardens are a must.
  • The 500 acre estate around the house is home to red squirrels (sightings guaranteed), pine martins, Barn Owls, otters, fallow deer and plentiful birdlife.
  • A short drive away wild atlantic waves roll onto golden beaches and sand dunes with a mountain backdrop.
