Kanturk, Co. Cork

Glenlohane is a superb Georgian country house set in beautiful park grounds with some wonderful old trees and views to the distant mountains. The present owners are direct descendants of the family who built the house in 1741. Desmond lived and worked in the United States and Melanie is American, and between them they have combined the very best of modern comforts with the character and atmosphere of the past.

Glenlohane is an informal house, with plenty of animals around, and guests often like to observe the regular farm activities. Good food and open log fires make this a relaxing place to stay. The large, comfortable drawing room features a square bay window, a baby grand piano, a superb full length mirror, grey marble fireplace and interesting pictures and furniture. There is also a small study filled with books, a dining room and a country kitchen.

A traditional stable yard is attached to the house, and the farm includes sheep and cattle. Riding can be arranged, providing sufficient notice is given, and the local Duhallow Hunt is the oldest pack in Ireland. Fishing is available only one mile away on the River Blackwater, and there are a variety of golf courses and lovely walks nearby. Mastercard and Visa accepted.
