We had my daughters christening here if I could give 11/10 for food and service I would. The venue was gorgeous on a wet cold day would be even nicer and a sunny day with there gorgeous outdoor bbq area.
Lucille & her family will give you a very warm welcome at their lovely country home. Four of us stayed for 3 nights, visiting both the Ploughing at Carlow and the INS at Kildare. We had adjoining rooms, with a kitchenette & great, big comfy beds. We were set up each morning, with a super breakfast, served in the family dining room. My hubby & I are in Ireland for a month and on leaving Coolanowle, we said to Lucille, she’d set the bar high for breakfast!! I hope you read this Lucille, as 2 weeks into our holiday you are still way up the top!!
Wow, what a fantastic venue! We organised a Hen Party for my sister at Coolanowle Country House in August 2019 and it was pure bliss from the moment we arrived. Lucille and the team were so helpful and accommodating and could not have done more to make us feel welcome. The house itself, set in the Irish countryside is beautiful, warm and has the perfect facilities for a hen party. Organising the hen was a breeze with the help of Lucille, the options for activities on site were great and everyone loved them. We did a Flower Crown Making class, Afternoon Tea and a Cocktail Making class! The food served during our meal that night was delicious and we had a great menu to choose from. Not to mention the breakfast the next day - wow! The bedrooms were very clean and cosy and had everything we need. Another great thing about this venue was the access to the lounge room where we could chill out for the night playing games and chatting with a bar and barman to accommodate us. I can not recommend Coolanowle Country House enough - we'll definitely be back! Thanks Lucille and the team.…
My first time in Coolanowle House and was majorly impressed! The value for money was unbelievable, the quality of food was excellent and the best part was the entire staff and how helpful and friendly they were! Nothing to fault.
I'm full of praise for Lucille and all her staff. We recently had a hen weekend with them and they ensured everything was of a fantastic standard. In the lead up no question was too big or too small 're the organisation, with prompt responses. A warm and friendly reception in an idyllic venue, amazing food and service. A genuinely charming location that ensured a brilliant weekend for all. Could not recommend enough.
After flying all night from MInnesota to Dublin this was the perfect stop on our way to the Ring of Kerry. A Comfortable house and bed and very friendly owners. We slept well and enjoyed a delicious typical farm fresh breakfast from the onsite organic farm.
I spent last weekend at Coolanowle House for my hen weekend. The time we spent there was completely unforgettable and so special. We had the most outstanding food: a to-die-for afternoon tea with homemade meringues, scones, brownies, eclairs, delicious jams and yummy sandwiches. Three course dinner that evening was melt in the mouth, with a particularly memorable banoffie pie, the best I've ever tasted. Afternoon tea was so beautifully served in a gorgeous, comfortable room with vintage china. The next morning we came down to a beautiful spread of freshly made scones, brown bread, homemade organic juices, plus a hot breakfast, I had the salmon and eggs and it was perfect and exactly what was needed. The service for the whole weekend was so friendly and warm, nothing was too much trouble. The evening was spent in the living room drinking wine and chatting and playing games around an open fire. I'll remember it forever! It was one of the best weekends of my life. 100/100…
Was here in March for a Hen weekend. It's really cosy and the breakfast is worth getting up early for. Staff were great.Bedrooms are beautiful. We had the place pretty much to ourselves felt really comfortable and relaxed hanging out there
We stayed here recently for a night and everything was just amazing ... so welcoming and rooms beautiful , breakfast was fantastic nothing too much trouble & a great on site restaurant for evening time also highly recommend
Had a great time at Coolanowle recently for my sister-in-law's hen party. Everything was beautifully presented and it was fantastic to have everything taking place on-site. The food - afternoon tea; delicious dinner and gorgeous breakfast - was all top-notch and the setting was really lovely. Accommodation gets top marks too - a perfect spot to bring a group together.
