One of three old stone buildings on Airbnb adjoining the castle (two cottages and a turret). Entirely self-contained and private. Quiet, beautiful setting, by a river and gardens on the historic estate. Perfect for a couple. Fold-out bed option.


West Cottage (along with the adjoining East Cottage, and The Turret, both also on Airbnb) is one of a number of listed historic buildings around the mediaeval Clonbrock Castle, a National Monument.

The cottage consists of a sizeable kitchen/living room and a double bedroom with en-suite shower-room. There is a private courtyard at the back.

The main room is heated by a powerful Dovre multi-fuel stove (logs and turf supplied), which when it is cold will be lit before you arrive. This is supplemented by two electric panel heaters and a towel rail radiator in the shower-room.

There is a 22" HD TV with a Freesat tuner and Wifi.

The kitchen area has an electric oven and hob, a fridge, a kettle and toaster. The ingredients for self-catering breakfasts, including speciality teas and coffees, butter, marmalade, cereal and fruit will be supplied. A small loaf of bread, a litre of low-fat milk, half a dozen eggs and a litre of orange juice will be in the fridge.

Ingredients for cooking including olive oil, salt, pepper and a range of herbs, are also provided.

There is also a washing-machine, an iron and ironing-board, a clothes drying-rack, a hair-drier, a vacuum cleaner, garden table and chairs, and a barbecue.

The long decline of the once grand Clonbrock estate left the cottage (along with adjoining East Cottage) roofless and overgrown by 2005 when Beverly and I first saw it. It was renovated, using reclaimed slate and lime plaster in 2012-4.

Detailed information on the history of Clonbrock and the recent restorations - plus all the things you can see in and around the grounds - including maps and photographs, will be found in the cottage when you arrive.

Доступно гостям

Guests have access to about ten acres of atmospheric private woodland, gardens and riverbank. You will be welcome to explore inside the castle from the ground floor to the battlements, though a few small sections may still be roped off for safety until work is completed.

We (and our guests) can also access other local woodland walks. Fallow deer, red squirrels, pine martens, foxes - even very occasionally otters! - as well as ravens, herons and many other birds - may be seen.

The immediate grounds will be of interest to gardeners, with many old specimens rescued from neglect, and many more and often rare varieties planted in recent years.

Общение с гостями

As little as you like! But someone will always knock on the door after you arrive to see how you're getting on, and be on hand if you have any questions. Beverly and I live in Garden House next door.

Другие важные подробности

In case you and your companion don't wish to share the double bed, we have one generously-sized fold-out bed (with memory foam mattress, bedding supplied). Message us if you want us to reserve this for you, and we will offer to amend your booking to add a one-off €20 extra charge.

Our rescue/renovation project at Clonbrock is a work in progress. On weekdays there will usually be something going on somewhere, but it should have no impact on guests in the cottage.

You will find a mobile phone signal, but probably not indoors.

The internet connection, though generally fine, does play up occasionally. Although we have no download limit it's not really suited to streaming movies as the copper line is shared with the rest of the site.

Because the cottage is self-contained, there are no pets in the property as such, but you might encounter our cats, Pumpkin and Edith.

The cottage was beautiful and so cozy. Set in a hidden castle. It was nice to explore old ruins and the surrounding gardens. The cottage is fully equipped. We really enjoyed our break. Highly recommended for a relaxing gateway.

West Cottage is a delight, and Jonathan and Beverly are terrific hosts. We had a great time exploring the castle and grounds. Our stay here was a favorite part of our trip.

Everything about this place is pure magic. Jonathan and Beverly are wonderful people and hosts. The castle grounds are so romantic and beautiful. My only complaint is that I was only there a few days. Next time I'm staying longer. :)

Very beautiful in every sense of the word. Every comfort, superb bed and the VERY best shower i have ever had in Ireland or any other place, plus, simple clean design in a centuries old setting with gorgeous landscaping. Clean and alive, there is superb energy here.I feel very lucky to have found this.

This place is seriously something out of a fairytale! The cottage was cute, cozy, and warm. Jonathan and Beverly were very considerate hosts, setting us up with everything we needed for a nice little breakfast in the morning and maps to explore the castle and the rest of the property on our own. We would highly recommend a stay at the castle to anyone visiting this part of Ireland!
