A Little History

Coolderry House & self catering lodges are just 1 kilometre from the village of Coolderry, which is renowned for it’s success in the sport of hurling. While just down the road and over the county border in Offaly in Gloster House and Gardens. An impressive and historical country house and estate, popular for its magnificent Weddings.

Coolderry House was built in 1796, during the time of the plantation for Anthony Joseph Robinson, whose monogram is reputed to appear each spring in the form of formally laid daffodils on the lawn to the front of the house.

William Robinson, direct descendant of the former was the owner from 1857. The property passed to Anthony J Robinson in 1891, in whose possession Coolderry House remained until after 1922. The property passed to the Carroll family, and then to its present owners Colette and Ronan Clarke in 2004.

Miles of Secluded Beauty

Take time to unwind, restore & relax. Sometimes what you really need is to relax and do absolutely nothing and Coolderry offers plenty of opportunities to do just that.

There is another world, but it is within this one.
