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. There are three double bedrooms and a ‘dorm’ with four single beds plus a large living and kitchen area. There is also a kids den and family bathroom, click ‘Layout’ tab on home page for details.

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. After a day’s walking relax with a glass of wine on the deck or by the open fire in the living area. Features include underfloor heating, satellite TV and WiFi.
