EXPLORE THE HOUSE AND GROUNDS | At the Stables we’ve thought of everything you’ll need for a relaxing break with accommodation for 10 people. After years of disuse, renovations of the first phase, the contemporary wing, Gold House (in honour of local wordsmith Oliver Goldsmith), were completed in December 2008.

The reconstruction of the old stable block, The Other Side, was completed in May 2010. The design work was undertaken by award-winning ODOS Architects from Dublin. This contemporary villa is set in private grounds of 10 acres, surrounded by a beautiful 900 acre forest with 28km of marked walkways to explore. Wellies in various sizes and local maps are provided. After a day’s walking or horse-riding, relax with a glass of wine on the deck or by the open fire in the living area.
