The place...Clonalis House...
The approach to the Clonalis estate is through a set of magnificent gates along a mile long avenue which meanders through pasture and parkland of oak and copper beach trees and as a result makes for a very unique and peaceful setting. The Courtyard at Clonalis has 4 self-catering cottages which retain all the elegance of the Georgian period. These superb holiday homes are comfortable residences with all modern comforts. Guests can choose to unwind beside the fire with a good book or are free to enjoy the peace and serenity of the 800 acre estate, disturbed only by birdsong & the hum of bees. With 2 walking trails through the woodland; The Suck Valley Way and also The Beara Brefnie Way, connect with nature and immerse yourself in idyllic scenery. The weekend is run in a relaxed manner where you eat well, sleep well and have a restful and restorative weekend. The Old Forge situated in the courtyard with its large welcoming fireplace and wooden floors is perfect for yoga……

Clonalis House is a uniquely Gaelic historic house that is still in the possession of the original family, and it is run as a guest house
Clonalis house is the ancestral home of the O’Conor family, direct descendants of Ireland’s last High King and traditional Kings of Connacht. The O’Conor family with its rich history of eleven High Kings of Ireland and 26 Kings of Connacht has lived on this heavily wooded 800 acre estate on the banks of the River Suck for more than 1,000 years–a time unrivalled in Ireland. The family have played a significant role in Ireland’s history, from their days as Kings of Connacht to ensuring the preservation of the Irish Language in the nineteenth century. Visitors can experience a rich heritage and history at Clonalis with correspondence, historical documents, heirlooms, objet d’art, the harp of Turlough O’Carolan (the famous blind harpist), the inauguration stone of the O’Conor Kings and family portraits which all play an integral part in the telling of the O’Conor family’s story. Our magnificent Clonalis Library, containing some 7000 volumes, is widely considered to be one of the best collections in private ownership in Ireland.
