Donegal chateau / country house description

Coolmore Manor House is a charming Georgian property on an elevated site with uninterrupted ocean views, overlooking Donegal Bay. It is self catering and available for rent on a weekly basis. The house is on 324m2, spread on three floors.
With breathtaking views overlooking Donegal Bay, Coolmore Manor House is a beautifully restored early 19th century Georgian Structure set on 12 acres of pasture land on the Wild Atlantic Way. It is an elegant 'home away from home' where a contemporary ambience is combined with antique furniture and warm hospitality. Three beautifully restored, individually designed bedrooms all en-suite.
The Manor House has kept a lot of its original character with many period features (e.g. sash windows with original wooden shutters, high ceilings with ornate plasterworks, wooden floors, marble fireplaces, flagstone floors.) The Living Room, Study and each bedroom have stunning panoramic ocean views towards Donegal Bay, Slieve League and the Blue Stack Mountains.

On 324m2 and 3 floors the house consists of:
* three beautifully restored, individually designed double-bedrooms, all with ocean view and en-suite (with bathtub and shower).
The beds are 180cm x 200cm and have two separate boxspring matresses in two diffrent strengths. With eiderdowm duvets.
The bedrooms have a TV and DVD player.
* a living room with ocean views, open fireplace, TV and DVD player, a small library with books, DVD's, magazines and board games
* a countryhouse kitchen with a big table
* a dining room with open fireplace and a big antique dining table
* a wonderful, heated conservatory-lounge
* a utility room with washing machine, dryer, outdoor games and a separate toilet
* a study with ocean views

There is also a modern Apartment on 57m2 for two people - with all imaginable comforts-, that can be rented together with the Manor House (or on short notice also separately). It is also suitable for people with reduced mobility, as it only has one step at the entrance.

A spectacular asset to Coolmore Manor House is the Bellavista (viewing point) with stunning views - almost 360 degrees. It is the perfect place to enjoy a sunset, a sundowner or a nice Aperitif or simply to relax.

We are ideally located, within walking distance to the well known 3km long, wide, sandy beach of Rossnowlagh. Also in walking distance are restaurants, pubs, a small shop, post office and a Franciscan friary. It is also possible to get catered for, e.g. the popular lobsterdinner.

- Golf – there are several top golf courses within easy reach
- Fishing, Sea Angling - freshwater and seafishing
- Massages, Physiotherapy - in our own treatment rooms
- Horse Riding, Beachrides, Therapy with Horses for people with fears - on the property
- Hiking, Biking

Coolmore Manor House is classified 5 star by Failte Ireland, the irish tourist board. Coolmore Manor House is located 18km south of Donegal Town, 8km north of Ballyshannon on the Rossnowlagh Road R231 along the Atlantic Shore.

Luxury, relaxation and adventure awaits…

Each room has its original high stucco ceiling and the original Georgian fireplace. The windows are the original Georgian sash windows with original wooden shutters. Our guests sleeping comfort is very important to us. All our beds come from the Schramm manufacturer in Germany, known worldwide for its luxurious beds. Each bed is hand-crafted to perfection, a process which takes more than 100 hours. The box spring mattresses come in two different levels of firmness (No. 2 for the ladies, No. 3 for the gentlemen). Our eider down duvets are made of new, pure white goose down, enriched with 10% feathers and the pillows are made of new, pure Masurian goose downs. Both are class 1 products manufactured by the Swiss brand Christian Fischbacher. The white bed linens are 100% sateen cotton (by Fair Trade Max Havelaar) and have also been produced in Switzerland....moreless
