Lisdonagh House: Galway

Exclusive serviced accommodation for larger groups of up to 19 guests, a substantial property for small events and extended family get-togethers.

Situated in Headford, a mere short 20 minutes from Galway city, Lisdonagh House is an early Georgian Manor with inspiring views over its own private Lake.

Circa 1720, this stunning country manor nestles on an exclusive 200 acres of undulating countryside dotted with beautiful woodlands.

Lisdonagh House is a place of enchantment, awaiting discovery.

The overlapping Beech tree-lined avenue heralds your arrival to Lisdonagh House as Connemara ponies graze in the front fields. Lake Hackett with its unique and historical crannog is mesmerising and ever-changing.

A truly private and stunningly beautiful estate, it offers a magical setting in which to respite and is a world apart offering the discerning visitor tranquillity, exclusivity and privacy. Lisdonagh House is elegant and luxurious but not precious.

Lisdonagh House offers a variety of accommodation to suit all tastes. The Manor House, sheltered by Oak trees offers traditional interiors, delicious food and old-style hospitality.

Ideal for a weekend away, cultural tour, family gathering, private house rental or a private house party to celebrate in style. It’s a perfect size, not too big and yet not too small.

Adjacent to the main house, the courtyard villas offer a relaxed ‘home from home’ experience. The Gate Lodge is an idyllic archery situated at the entrance to the estate and remains unchanged save for the provision of all modern amenities during its restoration.

Whatever your choice of accommodation, a warm Irish welcome awaits you at Lisdonagh where your hosts, John & Finola Cooke, invite you to share with them this unique Irish heritage experience with delicious home-cooked and healthy food in a beautiful picture postcard setting.

It’s undeniable connection with its history and Georgian heritage creates an offering, not dissimilar, to that of Downtown Abbey!

Lisdonagh is a place with an ancient and magical history, where time appears to have no bearing. One would, at any moment expect to hear the call of the hounds or to see a fairy peeping from behind a limestone wall.

Myself and 19 others just spent a magical weekend at Lisdonagh House.

The photos don't do the place justice and we all had goosebumps as we approached the house. It's in a world of it's own, with beautiful furniture, ornate décor, luxurious large rooms with fireplaces to keep cosy. The rooms are spacious, all en suite, very comfortable beds, great showers, good quality bed linen and towels.

We had dinner cooked for us one of the nights and the cooking was top notch, and the kind hosts allowed us to take their horses for a hack. There are peaceful and tranquil walks to take as well.

None of us wanted to leave on Sunday! Will definitely be back, this place is a gem.

Get away
If you want to get away from it all this is the place to be, plus its only 15 miles from Galway City. Finola was an excellent host. The decor was beautiful and any problems were sorted out quickly. I will be back again

Our group of 19 stayed AT lisdonagh House plus one of the adjacent courtyard villas for the weekend to celebrate everybody turning 40. We had a fantastic weekend and this is the perfect venue for a reunion. Finola organized catering for us one of the nights and the food was impeccable. It was such a treat to be cooked for and then retire to the drawing room for the evening where the fire kept us cozy all evening. A really memorable weekend and location. We'll definitely be back!

Looking down onto the lake, the pastoral landscape is a joy to behold, either from inside the house or while wandering the fields and by roads of this very special house. Build in the 18 century, it truly is a jewel, the owners have updated the house tastefully, it's warm and comfortable with modern bedding and facilities. We had the pleasure and use of Lisdonagh Manor and one of the Coach Houses, "Inisfree" which is such a cute, cosy 2 bedroom house in the Coach yard. The caterer was superb, Martina cooked monk fish and rack of lamb for us on Saturday night, also a sweet roulade treat, it was ALL OF IT delicious, so totally YUM... honestly you'll love her food.
