Oldcastle chateau / country house description
Loughcrew House was built in the 1850's by Charles Cockerill and has been lovingly restored. It is set in 200 acres of parkland with stunning views from all directions. The interior has been artistically decorated by Emily Naper and there is a wonderful energy throughout the house and its surroundings.
Loughcrew House is steeped in history and beauty and lies at the foot of the Loughcrew Megalithic Cairns (around 4000 BC). Wake up in one of the master bedrooms, look out of the window in awe at the landscape, have breakfast in the dining room and walk down to the 17th and 19th Century Historic Gardens (which includes the St. Oliver Plunkett's family church). Visit the Megalithic Cairns or Loughcrew Lake. Adventure onto the Adventure Course! And all this in Loughcrew!
The house has 9 comfortable bedrooms, each with their own unique style. Some rooms have antique furniture, others are decortaed with a certain French flair. Relax in the 40 foot long sitting room with its open fire place, a piano and a dining table or stay snug in the study with its stove and huge TV.
The surrounding area offers the opportunity for some unique sightseeing. The Seven wonders of Fore Abbey, Kells Heritage Town, Tullynally Gardens and Belvedere Gardens, not to mention New Grange, are all within 45 minutes.
On our doorstep, you can go horse riding, hunting in the winter, swimming and fishing in the lakes. There are gyms and swimming pools in the local towns.
However, don't forget to visit the surrounding towns and villages for traditional Irish music, superb restaurants, and a great pint of Guinness, all with great locals and great banter.
Check out our website for upcoming evants at Loughcrew such as our Opera Festival and promotions on the Adventure Centre.
We look forward to welcoming you to Loughcrew!
