About the property

Get away from modern life in this beautiful farmhouse

Perfectly located in the heast of the lakelands of Country Cavan, Knocknalosset House is ideal for families or outdoor activity groups alike that wish to take full advantage of all that this wonderful area has to offer. Watersports, lake fishing, bicycle rides, etc; this is the perfect base for your outdoor adventure to begin from.

Knocknalosset is an endearing two-storey farmhouse in roughcast with a hipped roof. Something of a split personality. The N front, set in a narrow yard facing a long lofted barn, is simple, with four bays and a small gabled porch on the ground floor; three bays above. Here the windows are all sill-less, mostly with miniature Georgian sashes. A contrast with the more formal S front, which was refenestrated in the late Georgian period: also of three bays, with with enlarged openings, with tripartite sash windows on sandstone sills. Entrance in an off-centre gabled windbreak.

The authentic limewashed interior is a very rare survivor, with low-ceilinged rooms and good 19th century paneled doors and shutters. Interesting plan, with five rooms on the ground floor around a long hall with narrow stairs placed across the kitchen at the centre; here a generous arch over the hearth and, piercing the stair wall, the obligatory squint as a window on passing life. Georgian maps show the existence of a house here bfore 1775, when the lands formed part of the Greville estates.

About Irish Landmark Trust

Irish Landmark is a non-profit organisation that finds interesting and unusual properties that are in need of conservation, and we give them new life. Since 1992, we’ve been turning historic buildings into truly special self-catering holiday accommodation. Our properties range from lighthouses and schoolhouses, to castles and gate lodges.

As an educational charity, our primary aim is to conserve and sustain iconic buildings. That’s why Irish Landmark properties are living buildings, not museum settings. Irish Landmark always respects the history and architectural integrity of the structures we conserve, but we also ensure they have all the contemporary comforts you want in a holiday home.

Over the past two decades, we’ve conserved 25 quirky, eccentric, and distinctive buildings across Ireland. Irish Landmark uses only the best artisans, builders and craftspeople, and we give them scope to revive traditional skills that might otherwise be lost.

Conservation projects like ours can lift the morale of communities, and the tourist revenue from Irish Landmark guests brings cash infusions and new energy to these areas. Keeping the buildings truly relevant means offering the romance of a medieval spiral staircase, along with a modern kitchen and a shower that works.

It might not feel like your holiday is anything but a relaxing indulgence, but when you stay in an Irish Landmark property, you’re part of a community that’s keeping heritage alive.

A stay in an Irish Landmark property is memorable, comfortable, and elegant without any manufactured lifestyle gimmicks. Our trustees and funders, along with our growing network of Irish Landmarkers, help us fulfill our aims as an educational charity, and as leaders in conservation practices. Together we live our ethos to share both our heritage and the responsibility to be its careful and caring stewards.

Be a part of our mission to save, share, and sustain Ireland’s heritage by booking a stay, or becoming an Irish Landmarker.

Why Irish Landmark Trust chose County Cavan

If you want/need a break away from it all, the modern world, this conserved farmhouse is the perfect place to go. Surrounded by countryside and deep in the heart of the lakelands of County Cavan, Knocknalosset House is ideal for familes to get away and reconnect; artists to quietly contemplate their next great masterpiece; dog owners to have meandering walks down country lanes followed by picnics in the garden or lounging in front of the fire in the evenings.
