Lisdonagh House : Irish Castle Rental, Galway

Dining 2017-06-12T16:16:18+00:00


Lisdonagh Manor is a beautiful 18th century Georgian estate house on over 200 acres of woodland and parkland with private fishing lake. It was lovingly restored by the Cooke Family in 1995 and is available for private rental and offers luxurious accommodation in nine en-suite bedrooms. There is a formal dining room with open fire, a library/study and a fabulous proper country house kitchen complete with Aga and magical lake view. The atmosphere is very “homely”  but on a rather “grand” scale offering you a welcoming home from home.

House guests may self-cater or enjoy delicious home cooked food from our bespoke caterers. To arrange a private chef please email Finola at Finola is Ballymaloe trained Condon Blue will liaise with you detailing different menu options depending on the occasion and budget. We are fortunate in Galway to have wonderful local ingredients and so close to our food source so we can offer memorable fine dining experience and any level of service you require.

Galway is fast growing the food capital of Ireland sporting two wonderful Michelin star restaurants Aniar and Loam as well as many other award winning restaurants. We are just 20 mins from the City (15 miles) and happy to recommend different dining options or speciality food shops for sourcing the best of local ingredients. We can also make arrangements for you to enjoy dinner or afternoon tea at Ashford Castle (20 mins drive).

We are more than happy to plan your event with you and ensure you get to sample the best of modern Irish country house cooking.
