Drive southwards from Dublin through the gloriously rugged Wicklow Mountains and, at the foot of the famous Sally Gap, you’ll find The Manor, a rambling family home of great charm and character.
Wicklow mountains as a backdrop
The house was rebuilt in 1835 in the gabled Elizabethan-Gothic style and its large, comfortable, sunny rooms afford wonderful views of the surrounding countryside with the mountains as a backdrop. The owner, Margaret Cully, is an accomplished hostess, a fine cook and a dedicated gardener. The Manor is a superb base for the three-Day Event at Punchestown, or for visiting Russborough, one of Ireland’s most beautiful houses with an internationally important art collection.
The house has a series of elegant reception rooms and guests can enjoy fine country cooking by candlelight in the panelled dining room.
Enjoy a a superb dining experience
There are 40 acres of mature gardens, with winding woodland walks and a splendid spread of old and unusual trees, now in full maturity. There is a river and a private lake.
This is an ideal base for exploring County Wicklow, and for visiting Dublin, just 25 Km away. Punchestown, the Curragh and Naas racecourses are within a 30 minute drive. There is a wide choice of equestrian centres and golf courses nearby.
