Lisdonagh House: Galway

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.

Dating back to 1720, this stunning country manor is nestled on an exclusive 200 acres of undulating countryside dotted with beautiful woodlands.

Lisdonagh House is a place of enchantment, waiting to be discovered.

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 classical interiors, delicious food and old style hospitality.

Lisdonagh House Bedrooms
There are 9 individually designed bedrooms in Lisdonagh House. Each bedroom has been named after a prominent Irish Artist with four suites offering superb lake views. Each guestroom offers period furnishings and has a luxurious private bathroom with shower and/or bathtub. They are havens for sleeping and dreaming…
The Yeats Room – King size Bed with Lake view
The Carolan Room – Double Bed with Lake view
The Joyce Room – Double & Single Bed with Lake view
The Maud Gonne Room – King size Bed with Garden view
The Synge Room – King size Bed with Garden view
The Flaherty Room – Queen Bed with Garden view
The Gregory Room – Twin Beds with Garden view
The Sommerville Room – Double Bed with Garden view
The Merriman Room – Double Bed with Garden view

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

Additionally, the courtyard villas offer a relaxed 'home from home' experience and are located adjacent to the main house. The Gate Lodge is an idyllic archery located 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 past 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.

Truly something out of a fairy tale. The property and house were cozy and beautiful. You truly get the Irish experience coming here and to Headford. The host were very accommodating and helpful as well. I would highly recommend here to family and friends!

Fabulous old estate home. We held a wedding here for about 80 people and it wasn't crowded. Huge kitchen, massive living room and dining room, 9 bedrooms all with ensuites. Lovely grounds too. A bit tricky to find at first but well worth it. A small town with good supplies is 10 minutes away. About a two hour drive from Dublin. Lovely hosts too.

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
