Standing on a secluded two-acre site yet within a short stroll of the pretty town of Castlecomer, Donaguile House, dating from 1839 approx is a stunning example of Victorian style & elegance. The 6 bed house is immaculately presented, featuring extensive accommodation, including three reception rooms, a large kitchen/breakfast room, a stunning orangery overlooking the rear courtyard and a games room. There is ample private parking, a charming walled garden and lawns. See instagram: @donaguile

Le logement
Donaguile House is close to 200 years old. It originally formed part of the extensive 'Wandesforde' Estate. It is an example of an upper middle class early Victorian residence and is laid out with master and servant's areas ( sorry no servants anymore!) Guests will enjoy a beautiful period setting with some modern comforts including professional cleaning and laundry. While it is located on the edge of the village Donaguile has a 'country house' feel, being completely surrounded by mature trees. The interior has a calm and elegant charm with soft heritage colours, original artworks on all of the walls and an eclectic mix of antique and contemporary furniture. The interior featured in '25 Beautiful Homes' (UK) and in 'Ireland's Home Interiors and Living' 2018. Donaguile was also featured in the TV show 'Home of the Year' in March 2019. It is a very relaxing space to enjoy time with friends or family yet with lots of activities literally on your doorstep from forest walks, boating, rope climbing, zip-wiring, archery, golf, to a mining museum, cafes, arts and crafts - all set in the beautiful Irish countryside, an hour and a half from Dublin and just 20 minutes drive from the wonderful medieval city of Kilkenny.
We open our doors in the summer months for 8-10 weeks and very much look forward to welcoming our guests for our fourth season in 2021!

Accès des voyageurs
Guests have full and private access to the entire house. The one acre enclosed lawn space to the front of the house is available for guests' use and an antique croquet set is provided. There is a games room in Donaguile House, featuring a full size table tennis table which guests are also welcome to use. High speed internet access is available throughout the house, plus there is a Roberts bluetooth speaker system in the living room and a large screen TV in the family room. Guests may also visit the beautiful three quarter acre walled garden in the grounds of Donaguile House. A caretaker/gardener lives part-time in the 'cottage' (the stone annex to the right of the house).
The west facing courtyard behind the house is completely private to the main house and not overlooked. It is lovely on sunny evenings for drinks, dining etc.
Note that the South gable of the house is adjacent to the road leading into the village but the grounds are completely enclosed by a wall and trees with access via a short avenue.

Autres points à prendre en note
Gourmet Food at Donaguile! Are you celebrating a special occasion during your stay or do you love fine dining? For our 2020 season we are offering guests a unique opportunity to avail of a gourmet private dinner party served by Michelin recommended chef Keith Boyle of Restaurant Lady Anne in the dining room at Donaguile House. There are some terms and conditions but if you are interested please let me know in your booking email and I'll pass on the details.
The Walled Garden. We are also excited to start a collaboration next spring in our walled garden at Donaguile to provide fruit ,vegetables and flowers for Restaurant Lady Anne!
The house and grounds are pretty safe and suitable for children ( children will particularly love the outdoor space and the garden) but the nature of the house means that it is not set up for the safety of toddlers and smaller children i.e no stair or fire guards etc. Parents are strongly advised that there will have to be a high level of supervision of children during your stay.

Castlecomer, County Kilkenny, Irlande

Donaguile is set at the edge of the pretty village of Castlecomer. Only a few hundred metres from the house is 'The Discovery Park' which includes a cafe and craft village, forest walks, rope climbing, archery, boating on the lakes and a spectacular zip wire – great fun for both adults and kids of all ages. (pre booking online is recommended). The park is lovely for a walk in the evenings when it's quiet.
Castlecomer also boasts a picturesque 18-hole golf course. Horse riding is available locally too. There is a gourmet restaurant, a hotel for a drink, dinner or bar food, 3 pubs, 2 supermarkets which will provide all your grocery needs, 3 lovely cafes for coffee or lunch, (the 'Lime Tree' is also great for dinner. )There are newsagents, 2 pharmacies, a butcher, hairdressers, take-aways, a bank and 2 ATM machines all within 5-7 minutes walk. Restaurant Lady Anne, open at the weekends, is situated in the beautiful old 'Creamery' building once home to Lady Anne Wandesford, Countess of Ormonde is just a 2 min walk away i.e. practically at the end of our drive!! - run by Michelin recommended chef Keith Boyle and his wife Carmel it is a must for foodies.
A 5 minute drive takes you to the spectacular Dunmore caves with their Viking remains and a 15-20 minute drive takes you the 12 miles to the beautiful medieval city of Kilkenny, with its stunning castle, numerous historic sites, the Design Centre, a host of quality restaurants, ( 2 with Michelin stars), bars, the best of traditional Irish pubs with live music and 'Craic', cinemas, theatres, galleries, night clubs and shopping.
Kilkenny, (20 mins drive ) boasts over 100 eateries from cafes to bar food to Michelin starred fine dining. Durrow Castle, (15 mins drive in the other direction) is excellent for dinner or casual bar food.
Kilkenny is a very busy tourist town in the summer and it's a good idea to pre-book the better restaurants in order to be certain of your choice.

I'm Jane, married to John and I have two teenage daughters. I am an artist so my qualifications and interests lie in all things aesthetic! Art history, design, architecture, heritage. I love the garden too. My art and design is apparent throughout Donaguile house and I hope our guests will enjoy the tranquil and beautiful environment which I have endeavoured to create.
