Mount Briscoe, set in a 100 acre working organic farm offers stunning self-catering accommodation suiting families or groups of up to 5 people and/or a charming Shepherd’s hut for 2 complete with sun deck, fire pit and hammock. Travel writer Thom Breathnach featured Mount Briscoe as one of ten great rural escapes in Ireland. (September 2020) “their self-catering Hunting Lodge could easily grace the cover of Country Living magazine”. A perfect marriage of modern aesthetic meets gorgeous old bones in the decorating of this 1700’s countryside home, exudes warmth, both inside and out.
A bucolic, tranquil setting to unwind and enjoy rural Ireland on your own schedule. The house is immaculate, appointed with beautiful antiques, yet so comfortable and inviting you will find yourself curling up in corners with a book and a view of classic Irish scenery--age old stone walls, green fields and grazing horses. Expect to sleep like a dream on beautiful linens, enjoy a leisurely breakfast and stroll to the Grand Canal Greenway only a half mile away. It is heaven if you are looking for rest and relaxation. Pack your provisions so you don't have to venture out once you are there.
Mount Briscoe also offers a charming Shepherd's Hut if you fancy some rustic glamping — a perfect break for couples or a solo traveller wanting to unwind. This little gem makes for a cosy, colourful and chic staycation. There’s even stables if you’d like to bring your own horse on hols! Mingling with the resident dogs, horses and rare-breed cattle also comes as standard. Located about an hour and fifteen minutes from Dublin, far from the well-trodden tourist trails yet a superb hub from which to explore Ireland’s Ancient East (Lough Boora, Slieve Blooms, Birr Castle, Clonmacnoise…). Feast on a luxury breakfast hamper, filled with fresh produce from our kitchen garden or local artisan food..
