We have restored the original buildings in the Victorian courtyard of Lisdonagh Manor to create two Heritage Villas and a Coach House which are all available for self catering rentals. They are available on a nightly or weekly basis with a minimum weekly rental during the July and August. The two Heritage Villas each have two bedrooms and are finished to a high spec and detailled descriptions are below:
Lughnasa Villa – Sleeps 4 guests
Two storeys with under floor heating on the ground floor as well as a compact galley style kitchen and beautiful antique furnishings. Ideal for friends and families, Lughnasa has two double bedrooms (king size & queen size beds) and two bathrooms. Lughnasa is an ancient Celtic Festival, the first of three harvest festival and said to be created by the Celtic God ‘Lugh’. The month of August is also called Lunasa in Gaelic and it marks the last days of summer. In keeping with the Lisdonagh tradition of naming rooms after Irish literary figures, the naming of the Lughnasa Villa was inspired by Brian Friel’s “Dancing at Lughnasa” play.
Inisfree Villa – Sleeps 4 guests
Inisfree is an attractively designed holiday apartment in Galway. On the ground floor there is a large sitting room with plush period furnishings and wood burning stove. A small but fully fitted galley kitchen is adjacent to the sitting room. Upstairs there are two bedrooms, one very spacious double bedroom and a twin bedroom – both en-suite. The villa takes its name from the beautiful poem by Irish poet, William Butler Yeats “The Lake Isle of InisFree”. The poem was written in 1888 and was inspired by an uninhabited island in County Sligo. As Yeats walked through the bustling streets of London, he longed for the peace and tranquility of his homeland. With our 200 acres, private lake and woodland walks, we can assure you that at Lisdonagh you shall have ‘some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow‘.
