Noel and Dee are the proud owners of this special property, which they have painstakingly restored from a state of disrepair when they purchased the property 12 years ago. When Noel retired as a veterinary surgeon he bravely took on this project. The project has been a great success and has kept him out of mischief for many years. Dee is still working as a teacher and she will retire this summer. Noel and Dee love having people to stay
Noel will be on hand when you arrive and will help you settle into your house and ensure that you are comfortable.
History of the property
The property is steeped in history. It is a former Victorian model farm, which up until the 1970’s was the Home Farm to the magnificent Coolattin House on the estate of Earl Fitzwilliam, the adjoining property which today is the beautiful Coolattin Golf Club. The Fitzwilliam estate was vast, owning 80,000 hectares equating to 1/5th of County Wicklow. The family were also proprietors of the renowned Wentworth House estate in England’.
The guest accommodation consists of 4 individual self-catering guest-houses. These houses were the original farm staff houses back in the times when Coolattin Lodge was the Home Farm to the great neighbouring Coolattin House on the Fitzwilliam’s estate, which now homes the beautiful Coolattin Golf Club. At Coolattin Lodge the 4 guest houses are set in a unique Victorian courtyard – The Dairymaid’s House, The Groom’s House, The Saddler’s House and the Buttermaid’s House, each have been beautifully but sympathetically refurbished. There are:
1 x 5 bedroom (this house can also be let as a 3 bedroom house)
2 x 3 bedroom houses
1 x 2 bedroom house. Two of our houses have disabled access.
