What a beautiful house and expansive property; the perfect place to unwind and soak in nature and it's surroundings. The house and bedrooms were very nicely decorated and a good size, the family was very friendly and informative, and it was nice to sit and read or have tea and scones in the large family room. I loved being able to see the geese, hens, birds, and cows while taking a stroll around! Definitely a place to return to!

Room tip: Some rooms have large bay windows.

We got married at Coolanowle in July '15. We couldn't compliment Lucille, Bernadine and the team enough - they were professional yet caring from start to finish and honestly couldn't have looked after our families or our guests any better. We had very high expectations for the weekend (the wedding day followed by 4th of July BBQ) and they were all exceeded. One of the main reasons we chose Coolanowle as our venue was for their Organic Meats and homemade recipes... we are still getting compliments on the food from our guests! From scones to steak to salads to cakes everything was absolutely delicious. Coolanowle is a truly unique venue - one with loads of character and an extremely dedicated staff behind all operations. Lucille, Bernadine and the team worked tirelessly to ensure that our wedding exceeded our expectations. We could not recommend Coolanowle highly enough!

Room tip: Every room has loads of character!

Kait & Darragh, Firstly I would like to say a massive sincere thank you to you both for your glowing review! We are almost blushing here with your fabulous comments! Such positive reviews are invaluable to our business, especially as a wedding venue in its infant stages... We are thrilled that your experience as bride and groom was so positive and that your guests are still taking about your fabulous alternative wedding here at Coolanowle Country House! The resounding success of the day it is fair to say was partly due to all your efforts in the run up to the big day as well as those efforts of Talbots Hotels Creative Catering Team whom I'm delighted to corroborate did an outstanding job with the food and service on the day. It was very much a team effort by all parties involved. I am delighted to report to you that the wedding venue business is seeing a steady growth again this year. I cannot thank you both enough for choosing Coolanowle for your wedding venue and wish you every blessing for your future as husband and wife!

We had my son s christening lunch at Coolanowle country house last weekend. We had a wonderful day, it was like a home away from home. The relaxed atmosphere, the great service, fires burning, great food ( apple crumble to die for) ment we all relaxed and enjoyed the day. The grounds were great for kids to run off their energy before their meal ( which was really good food) and the separate room with a lovely fire allowed the kids to play games or watch dvd s, which was great peace! Lucille and Bernadine were so welcoming and a pleasure to deal with from start to finish..We will be back!

Just back from a wonderful night in Coolanowle House with my sisters and the rest of our hen group and 3 days later still feel full! The experience from booking, to arrival, the rooms, all the activities, the food and check-out was seamless, relaxed and set a perfect tone for our weekend. We enjoyed an amazing afternoon tea on arrival, a treasure hunt around the grounds and a simple but delicious four course meal in the evening. We had the exclusive use of a cosy, comfortable sitting room for chilling, playing games and watching the rugby and Lucille organised Mick the taxi driver to spin us into Carlow for a night out.

Not that we needed it, but breakfast the next morning was again, delicious and we all left in the early afternoon having had a truly memorable experience. Lucille and Bernadine made us feel like we were welcome guests in their home, we were fed like royalty (with the odd glass of prosecco thrown in) all at an incredibly reasonable price.

Couldn't recommend Coolanowle highly enough - thanks ladies for making a special weekend even more special!

I highly recommend this place.
We went for a weekend retreat and teaching. We were a group of 12 people and stayed for 2 nights.
It was so easy to deal with Lucille and Bernie. They were always helpful and provide us all what we need to have a great retreat weekender.
Beautiful place, the rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated. Superb organic food and outstanding service.
Thanks to Lucille, Bernie and family. You are great. We really had a great time and we hope to see you soon.
Thank you!!!!
