Mornington House: Westmeath

Mornington House is a historic Irish Country Manor offering luxury country house accommodation and exquisite home cooked dining located in the heart of the Co. Westmeath countryside, just 60 miles from Ireland's capital city of Dublin.

The property as it stands today, was largely designed in 1896 by W. H. Byrne, a prolific church architect, known to have designed only one other private house. Patrick Henry and Elise O’Hara commissioned the new design in order to extend and remodel the existing fortified farmhouse, which was small by comparison to the grand houses of Ireland at the time but nevertheless large in comparison to the estate cottages.

While the house has not changed structurally since Victorian times, the interior and furnishings reflect all the comforts of modern Irish country life – all the rooms are centrally heated and elegantly furnished with luxuriously comfortable beds and en-suite bathrooms.

Available to Fivestar guests are four double rooms and one single room, all with private bathrooms.

Breakfast is served in the dining room anytime before 10.30 a.m. on weekdays or 12.00 noon at the weekend. The breakfast menu is available in your room. Please advise us of your choice the night before.

The four courses dinner is served in the Dining Room around the large oak dining table. Guests can gather in the drawing room a little before dinner for an opportunity to meet fellow guests, perhaps compare travel notes, and indeed sometimes it is the beginning of new friendships. Here they can peruse the menu, select a wine from our wine list, and enjoy a pre-dinner sherry, before being shown into the dining room by Warwick.

Afternoon Tea is available on arrival in the drawing room. Here guests can unwind with a complimentary cup of tea or coffee or hot chocolate and a selection of homemade cakes and cookies.

The walled garden produces many of the vegetables and much of the fruit used in the kitchen. Jams and marmalades made in the kitchen are used for breakfast or afternoon tea. We bake our own breads, cookies and pastries.

Tranquility and warm hospitality are the essence of Mornington, home to the O'Hara's since 1858.

Guests can walk to the lake or wander round the grounds.
Excellent golf, fishing, walking and riding can be arranged.

The Hill of Uisneach, the Neolithic passage tombs at Loughcrew and Newgrange and the early Christian sites at Fore and Clonmacnoise are all within easy reach, as are the gardens at Belvedere, Tullynally and Loughcrew.

"Excellent in all respects and highly recommended"
We stayed at Mornington as we wanted take an overnight break as we travelled from Dublin to Westport. it was a great decision.We were shown to excellent accommodation and enjoyed a fantastic meal cooked and served by Warwick and Ann, our hosts. We dined with couple who lived in Ireland and so our over dinner conversation helped us in our onward journey. Breakfast was also shared around an elegant table and was magnificent.Thank you Warwick and Ann for making our first night in Ireland so pleasant.

"Wonderful hospitality"
We stayed at Mornington House at the end of a 2-1/2 week trip to Ireland. It served as a wonderful relaxing decompression before our journey home. We enjoyed a stunning meal with the other guests on our first evening, swapping stories and comments on current events, then the best sleep of the entire trip. Several lovely things to see in the area, and just hanging in the garden and checking out the donkeys was delightful. It was an easy and direct drive to the Dublin Airport for our flight home, and Warwick was up bright and early to fix some breakfast and see us off. Our stay here was a highlight of our trip, and a great wrap up to a wonderful vacation in Ireland.

"Wonderful welcome in a magical location"
Deep in Ireland's Hidden Heart is this lovely residence, with all the key qualities of this peaceful part of Ireland: tranquillity, lakeland, ancient trees. Mornington is a classic example of the Irish Big House and its welcoming hosts are a credit to the tradition of hospitality.

Meals are around a big oak table in the dining room, so you soon get to know your fellow guests. After a recent visit to the Wild Atlantic Way (on the way to becoming a vctim of its own success, alas), I conclude that the discerning vistor to Ireland heads to places like this - and our fellow guests were a good proof of this.

Neighbouring attractions include the magical lake of Derravarragh and the Tullynally estate, home to Thomas Pakenham's collection of remarkable trees.

"A breath of fresh air from a charming old world"
Prepare to be hosted into a retreat of old world comforts after a winding drive through the countryside about 1.5hrs from Dublin city! We were welcomed warmly into this lovingly cared for home from the 17-1800s. Our room was big and blue, with an en suite and we found it cozy with a view of the daffodils in the garden and a nice surprise turn down service. Our apertif in the drawing room was as welcome as our digestif as we got comfortable by the fire. Our dinner was a hearty and delicious feast with a small but tasty wine selection and breakfast unrolled in an endless array of treats from the garden via the busy kitchen. Bring your appetite! Dinner needs to be booked in advance of arrival. Our hosts were attentive but never invasive and were quick to recommend local sights, mainly outdoor pursuits in beautiful gardens and ancient ruins among the rolling hills of Westmeath. The house is a short trek to the edge one of the lakes from the Children of Lir legend. There's wifi available but you may not want to sign in after you've settled into this charming retreat. Highly recommend this unique experience of hospitality from the epitome of Hidden Ireland!

"Wonderful experience in a beautiful home!"
We were welcomed to Mornington House with a lovely afternoon tea served in front of a roaring fire. Warwick and Anne were most gracious hosts. The house is very elegant and so well maintained. The front two bedrooms are particularly gracious. The grounds are also beautiful and do check out the walled garden. Dinner was excellent, four courses served in the elegant dinning room, the mushroom soup was voted the highlight of the meal. The beds were very comfortable, we had a great night's sleep. Breakfast was lovely, great choice of Granola, Porridge and fresh fruit, lovely homemade breads and fruit danishes and choice of cooked breakfast. It was a wonderful venue for meeting up with old friends.
