Property 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
- Surfing
- Sightseeing

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…

Owner info

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
A Georgian Manor House dating from 1820 which is located right on the Wild Atlantic Way, with stunning seaviews of Donegal Bay. The sandy beach of Rossnowlagh is in walking distance, as are restaurants, pubs, a little shop, the post office & a Franciscan friary. We are ideally situated to explore the beauty of county Donegal, parts of Sligo, Fermanagh and even Northern Ireland, with e.g. the giants causeway in a daytrip. The highest sea cliffs in Europe, Slieve League, are reachable in under an hour as are many more beautiful places for sightseeing & activities. On the property we offer horse riding for the guests, with rides on the beach and the surrounding countryside & we also breed show jumping horses. For interested guests we can loose jump horses where guests can watch or even participate. In addition we have our own treatment room, where guests can benefit from a range of treatments, from Swedish Full Body Massages, Hot Stone Massages, Ear Candling and Physiotherapy, etc. Seaweed baths are available for guests in the privacy of their own bathroom. Also a Sauna & Hot Tub with seaviews. Coolmore Manor House is not a house where guests just get the keys and that’s it for a week. We are always happy to help, do bookings for them or have a chat or an Aperitif on the Bellavista with our guests, etc. The personal touch and warm hospitality is very important to us & much appreciated by our guests. E.g. I can drive them to the start of the fabulous Cliffwalk that ends nearly right in front of us. Catering available. Lobster Dinner. There are great possibilities for golfing, with several 18 holes top golf courses nearby and also for fishing (sea angling, rivers, lakes) there are various possibilities nearby. Coolmore Manor House is approved and classified as 5 star by ‘Failte Ireland’ the irish tourist board and is the only 5 star Self Catering in the whole country!
