A Hidden Gem on the Beautiful Northwest Irish Coas

  • 5 of 5

Coolmore Manor House is a gem of a property on the gorgeous northwest coast of County Donegal in Ireland. The house (there is a gorgeous fully equipped apartment as well) is beautiful and everything is absolutely top notch and high end, from the fully appointed modern kitchen to all three huge and beautiful bedrooms, all with private bath (tub, shower and toilet) to the living areas, laundry facilities. extra bathrooms. dining room and conservatory (not to forget the peat fires!). The house is so comfortable and had absolutely everything one could want; if not, the very charming, friendly and helpful owner/hostess Daniela will get it for you. (there are even walking sticks for hikers and bocce and croquet sets). We were a group of six friends and all of us have traveled a good bit; we all decided that Coolmore was one of the most beautiful and comfortable places we have ever stayed. The house is situated on a quiet rural road but it is convenient to Donegal Town (about 15 minute aways) and everywhere in Donegal--we took day trips every day and covered most of the area. (Donegal itself is a stunning part of Ireland that for some reason is not a swarmed with tourists as the southwest, but is equally if not more beautiful) There are tons of things to do and sights to see in the area and Daniela is very helpful at helping decide the various options. Coolmore also has horses for show and riding and massage services, which are terrific. We could not have been happier and would love to return.

Traumhafte Unterkunft an grüner Westküste Irlands

  • 5 of 5

Irland war schon immer ein Traumreiseziel von mir und meiner Freundin: grüne Wiesen, wilde Natur, Pferde, Kühe und Bier. Im Juni war es dann soweit und Daniela hat unseren Irlandurlaub noch perfekter gestaltet.

Das Coolmore Manor House liegt direkt an der Atlantikküste - wovon man viele tolle Landmarks günstig erreichen kann (Cliffs of Moher, Slieve League...). Umgeben ist es von grünen, saftigen Wiesen wo man nur hinsieht und liegt nur fünf Gehminuten entfernt vom sehenswerten und weitläufigen Strand von Rossnowlagh. Viel Liebe zum Detail & Design, feines Essen und tolle Tiere auf ihrem Anwesen, machten den Urlaub für uns unvergesslich.

Können Daniela und das Coolmore House für alle abenteuerlustigen, naturliebenden und Design-orientierten Urlaubern nur weiterempfehlen, fünf Sterne für eine 5-Sterne-Unterkunft!!!

Freuen uns auf den nächsten baldigen Besuch bei dir Daniela!:) Gruß Benny & Cécile

Luxus-Ferienhaus in traumhafter Landschaft

  • 5 of 5

Stilvoll eingerichtetes, blitzsauberes Luxus-Ferienhaus direkt an der Atlantikküste. Grosse helle Schlafzimmer mit hervorragenden Betten und Blick über Pferdeweiden auf das Meer. Perfekt ausgestattete Küche, gemütliches Wohnzimmer und verglaste Veranda, die auch bei schlechtem Wetter zum Verweilen einlädt. Sehr herzliche Gastgeberin, die immer auf das Wohl ihrer Gäste bedacht ist!

Etwas abseits vom Haus befinden sich Pferdestallungen, wo die von der Hausherrin gezüchteten Pferde gehalten werden. Tierliebhaber können dort die Pferde mit ihren Fohlen beobachten. Wer nichts mit Tieren anfangen kann, bekommt aber kaum etwas von ihnen mit und wird sich sicherlich nicht gestört fühlen.

Ein irisches Juwel

  • 5 of 5

Das anmutige Coolmore Manor House hat uns sofort in seinen Bann gezogen. Das rund 200 Jahre alte Herrenhaus wurde im georgianischen Stil erbaut. Vor dem Haus führt eine repräsentative Freitreppe zur Eingangshalle mit Stuckdecke, altem Cheminée und grossem Kristallleuchter. Hinter dem Haus befindet sich ein wunderschöner Garten mit Hot Tub und - angebaut an das “Coach House” - einer Sauna. An der typischen, grau verputzten Fassade rankt ein Efeu. Daniela führt das Haus seit fünf Jahren und hat es zusammen mit ihrer Familie sorgfältig renoviert und eingerichtet.

Das Coolmore Manor House kann man wochenweise als Ferienhaus mieten. Das Frühstück lässt sich dazu buchen, ansonsten gilt grundsätzlich Selbstverpflegung; die wunderschöne Landhausküche ist dazu bestens ausgestattet. Wer nicht selber kochen will, braucht nicht weit zu gehen. Nur wenige Hundert Meter vom Hause entfernt findet man zwei authentische Pubs, das Gaslight Inn und das Smugglers Creek Inn. Allzu viel sollte man von der irischen Küche zwar nicht erwarten, aber gutes Bier und deftige Hausmannskost gibt es alleweil.

Ein echtes Highlight stellt hingegen das Lobster Dinner dar, welches Daniela auf Wunsch für ihre Gäste zubereitet. Man sagt, der irische Hummer sei der beste! Das Gästebuch zeugt jedenfalls davon, dass sich sich Danielas Lobster Dinner über die Jahre zu einem echten Renner entwickelt hat. Dazu wird einzig Knoblauchbutter und Baguette gereicht - purer und frischer geht's nicht.

Wir können einen Aufenthalt im Coolmore Manor House nur wärmstens empfehlen!
