Kildare chateau / country house description

Kildare Palladian Mansion is a world apart. Conveniently located, just 4kms from the nearest town and close to the N7 and N9, it is, nevertheless, the most secluded and exclusive oasis imaginable.

Set in 8 acres of private grounds, this Georgian property has been lovingly restored, boasting luxury accommodation and spacious dining rooms. Steeped in history as one the largest Georgian houses in Kildare, you’ll be hard pressed to find another setting as elegant and exclusive.

Approached via a long tree lined avenue, Kildare Palladian Mansion was built in 1709 by Thomas Burgh and remained the home of his descendants for 200 years.

The house has been extensively restored, retaining many of its original period features and charm. The main reception rooms are both grand and imposing with fine plasterwork ceilings, marble fireplaces and mahogany doors with gilded handles.

The website prices are based on groups of up to 30 in 15 bedrooms but a 25% discount applies for groups of up to 16 in the 8 first floor bedrooms. Please enquire.

Interior and Grounds:
The house has 15 bedrooms, all large with en-suite bathrooms. It is possible to hire the house for smaller groups of up to 16 at a discounted rate. Please enquire.

Each room is immaculately and tastefully decorated with personally selected designer fabrics and elegant wood furnishings, with every modern convenience you could require.

The bedrooms have a mixture of four poster and sleigh beds. While each room is unique in its décor and character features they reflect the same world class standards, with many offering wonderful views over the grounds. Each room leads through to its own spacious en-suite bathroom.

The house also has a full size snooker table, a gym, a sauna and a cellar bar that is ideal for parties. 12 mountain bikes are provided at the house and more can be made available on request. There is also a small cinema room which is great to keep the children entertained! Clients will also be able to use the rowing boat to navigate a small slip to the River Barrow from the house.

                                              About: Simply Chateau was set up in 2003 after two old school chums enjoyed a fantastic holiday with friends in a French chateau in the Dordogne. Oliver & Ravi, the two directors of the company, were amazed at what terrific value these stunning chateau rentals represented and decided to spread the word. Soon after the website was born. Today we deliver a wide range of luxury villas, private chateau and charming farmhouses throughout France, Italy, Spain, the UK and the Caribbean. We have something for everyone from charming manor houses representing great value for money to fully catered & serviced luxury chateau, all handpicked and chosen with care. Bookings are made direct with the owner of your chosen property to guarantee you get the best booking price available.
