Marvelous Irish Manor Homes

I will be off to sunnier weather and a warmer climate in a few days. The only thing I will miss is my annual dinner with my immediate Irish family for St Patty's day.  Our family was able to all come together this past Summer in Ireland, a trip we will never forget. When in Ireland where do you stay or where would you like to stay. Would you like to feel like a lady at Downton Abbey? There are many manor homes that one can rent  that will immediately transport you back to the times of Lords and Ladies, providing not only a great time but a bit of history as well. Here are some of my favorite finds in Ireland. Hope you all receive the luck of the Irish and I look forward to posting when I return.

Last but far from the least is the lovely home in which we stayed this past June.
Coolclogher House is wonderful and truly feels like you have stepped back in time but merely a 25-minute walk to town.  Tell Mary I sent you!

  8. I was in Ireland when I was a teenager, a hundred years ago, my parents rented a thatch roof cottage on Galway Bay. I would have preferred one of these estates!

  10. We spent part of our honeymoon at Mount Juliet which is absolutely stunning; the other part was spent at another manor that I will not name - we left early because it was honestly haunted.

    Have a great weekend!
