I have just attended a hen party at Coolanowle House. It was a wonderful day and night. Our hosts had a beautiful afternoon tea organised for us on arrival. We had great fun doing a cryptic treasure hunt and nice to get outdoors in the fresh air after travelling down. The evening meal was delicious as they have an organic...

Quantum Agriculture held their six day course here with farmers from 5 countries. Jimmy, Bernadine and daughter Lucille treated us like family. The meals were 5 star quality with their organic meats, Bernadine's homemade jams and best of all she made us gluten free breads, the self-contained cottage is modern, well heated, and fully equipped. I do not want to...

Booked the entire house for my entire (15 adults 10 children) family the night before my wedding including an evening meal in the converted barn. Everything was absolutely perfect. Lucille and Bernadine could not have been more accommodating. The standard of the rooms, evening food and breakfast was second to none. I'd highly recommend Coolanowle for any special occasion to...

We stayed for two nights alongside a large group of people gathered to celebrate mindfulness. Everything was extremely well managed and we experienced excellent service throughout the stay. We were welcomed with tea and freshly baked scones. Dinner and breakfast were both high quality - the taste of organic bacon is unparalleled and there is apple juice from the trees...

We were warmly welcomed to this very comfortable & traditional house situated on a working farm & surrounded by lovely countryside. Enjoyed the delicious home baked scones & breakfast with their own organic products. Big fire in the lounge area with lots of books & magazines to read added to the charm.

We loved this accommodation. We had our sister's hen night here. There was 19 of us on the hen and we loved the fact that we could book out the main house just for us.

Beautiful house,nestled in stunning grounds. More than comfortable, serenely quiet and our host Bernadine is utterly charming and warmly welcoming . Easy drive into Carlow for dinner if you haven't booked there , but after the delicious freshly cooked breakfast we wish we had.
