I had some family business to attend to locally and, wanting to stay a bit away from the bustle of the town found Coolanowle Country House.
I was welcomed warmly by the Bernadine, the owner with a cup of tea and a cake, the room was spacious, clean and warm with all amenities I required.
Breakfast was served exactly as I wanted it to be, and was a hearty farmhouse start to the day - cooked fresh to order with first class ingredients.
My only regret was not being able to stay longer. I hope to return again.

Had our wedding reception at Coolanowle on the 16th of September and we couldn't have picked a nicer venue. It was perfect for what we wanted, something different to the norm that provided a fun, relaxed and homely atmosphere for both ourselves and all our guests.

Lucille was a fantastic support to us in both the build up to our wedding and on the day itself. Her help and support was instrumental in making our wedding day run without a hitch.

We received a lot of feedback from our guests as to how impressed they were with the venue, the food and the professionalism of the staff.
With regards the food, it really was excellent and included Coolanowle's own organic meat. The breakfast served the following day was of an equally high standard.

It really was a fantastic day from start to finish and we are so delighted we picked Coolanowle as our reception venue.

Our thanks to Lucille, Bernadine and all the staff at Coolanowle.

Just spent weekend here for my bros wedding Sat 16 September. Excellent choice of venue for reception. Couldn't fault the hosts so kind & helpful - nothing was a problem to them. Food delicious & accommodation was perfect for all family guests staying the weekend. Wonderful serene landscape & peaceful surroundings. Wedding photography should be spectacular - all taken within grounds
Definitely worth a revisit

My wife chose this place on a cold and windy winter day for our September wedding. As I was working abroad I had to trust her judgement and look at the photos. They do not do the place justice. It is a lovely lovely place.
We had a magical weekend and Lucille and her mother Bernadine could not have done more. They told us the treat the place like our home and it was for the weekend. My wife had mentioned the rooms were a little traditional. They are a bit, but they are clean warm and lovely and suit the warm feel of the house. The grounds are lovely and the old barn for the ceremony and the marquee were perfect for our needs.
The building is surrounded by trees and the crows make a racket but that is the only sound in a really rural setting. No road noise etc. The grounds are lovely and safe for our guests small children to run around in. The caterers from the Talbot Hotel in Carlow did a grand job as well. The organic beef from the farm was awesome cooked on a barbeque grill.
Lucille added some lovely touches such as quirky wooden signs on the drive up to the house quoting wedding sayings which were great.
The breakfasts were lovely and the Irish breakfast went down well with the guests from the UK.
We had a great wedding but I am sure that even as a guest for a day or two this place would be just as warm and lovely.
Lucille couldn't do enough for us and we loved it. Would definitely visit again.

Room Tip: Cottages are also available with self catering

This is the third time we have visited with our twin boys; twice in one of the cottages and once in the main house. We have always had a lovely, warm welcome from Bernadine and her family and the breakfasts (including the amazing scones) are something of a family legend. It is comfortable and in such a beautiful setting. We have fond memories and happily recommend it to others.
