Lough Derg Manor: Clare

Reminiscent of bygone days, guests are welcomed to stay at our historic country manor nestled near the banks of Lough Derg in the West of Ireland. Encircled by centuries-old beech, ash and oak trees, hidden amidst lush gardens with riots of flowers, shrubs and fruit trees, you can experience true serenity in this authentic Georgian country home.

A precious fifty-acre wood runs along the lakeshore dotted with trails for hiking, horse riding and a private harbour for boating and kayaking. The extraordinary serene setting allows one to truly enjoy a place out of time, where life affords a slower pace. Relax and take a swing beneath a 300-year-old chestnut tree and watch the light play on the hills of Tipperary across the lake, enjoy an evening badminton game on the lawn, drinks and dinner under the evening sky, shimmering with stars. Soak in a beautiful Victorian bathtub and get cosy in front of a turf fire in one of the comfortable, well-appointed reception rooms.

The Courtyard is synonymous with the Georgian era and features a two bed two bath cottage in the 200-year-old Coach House, known as the GameKeeper’s Cottage. It is newly renovated with modern amenities, and makes an excellent addition to the main House.

The local area is a paradise for hiking, cycling, horse riding, water sports, fishing, golfing and wildlife viewing.

"It Was Like a Fairytale Dream Came True" It is hard to find the right superlatives to describe our experience at Williamstadt House this Christmas. The short version: 3 couple friends leave the US for an Irish Christmas and are met by the most delightful hosts, Carole and Kevin and their precious dogs, Sally and Walter. We enter a spectacularly gorgeous Georgian Manor Home where we immediately felt like royalty as a roaring fire was made for us daily and the exquisitely curated furnishings and treasures on display tell a story all their own. As others have said, Carole and Kevin have an incredible sense for hosting, with ideas and suggestions galore, as well as fascinating story telling as we sipped our beer and whiskey in their pub. The location and grounds were perfect for our day tripping and a most wonderful place for exploring. The bedding and towels were incredibly comfortable/high quality. Each bedroom and bathroom were extremely roomy. Some highlights: My daily soak in the splendid slipper tub; walks to the harbor down the lane; curling up with Sally and Walter on the sofa with the lights of the Christmas tree twinkling; a grand Christmas dinner in the kitchen at the farm table; all the women in our group dancing with Kevin in the pub; reveling in Carole and Kevin's stories...and so much more. We can't wait to go back to Ireland and specifically hope to return to Williamstadt House. A more perfect holiday can not be possible. It truly was like a fairytale dream came true.

"Magical" Usually, when reading gushing testimonials about holidays taken, or meals eaten, I wonder, do those people ever get out? Well, I'm afraid I'm going to join their ranks, and gush in praise of Williamstadt, Whitegate and Lough Derg, but most particularly , about Carole and Kevin. The house you can see from the photos, but the magical quality, you cannot. These guys were like great friends waiting to be met, unassuming, gentle, lovely. The house, countryside, environs and ambience were, well, incredible. But people make the world bearable at worst, and enjoyable and wondrous at best. And that's what we found. Thanks you, from my family and I (and especially Evin) for a little bit of wonder. We'll be back for that trip with Kevin soon! Love, Ian, Sandra, and the boys.

"The most perfect holiday destination" We have just returned from our summer holiday at Williamstadt House, a most perfect place to stay. Carole and Kevin were great hosts and nothing was too much trouble. Our ages ranged from grandparents in their late 70's to teenage boys and everyone fell in love with the house, the setting and the people. The lake is nearby and the boys spent time kayaking and biking around the countryside and we found so much to do that we didn't want to come home. We will return, thank you Carole and Kevin!

"Enchanting!" My boyfriend and I recently stayed at the Gamekeeper's Cottage. It is a beautiful cottage, very tastefully decorated. We were delighted with the homemade apple juice and cupcakes on arrival. We were also welcomed by two very enthusiastic and friendly dogs called Sally and Walter. Carole and Kevin are the perfect hosts with a wealth of local knowledge and history. We borrowed the bikes and cycled to Whitegate for a delicious meal. We also explored the beautiful woods on the banks of Lough Derg. I can't recommend Williamstadt House highly enough. It is a true hidden gem. The only regret I have about Williamstadt House is that our visit was too short. I look forward to returning in the near future.
