Coopershill Review

Step beyond the elegant, symmetrical stone facade with its central Palladian window, and wander through an appealing mix of antique bureaus, marble busts, mounted deer heads, and 19th-century paintings that fill the large reception rooms of this three-story Georgian farmhouse. Seven generations of the O'Hara family have lived here since it was built in 1774. Spacious, beautifully furnished guest rooms have floral wallpaper and most have four-poster or canopy beds. Dine by candlelight (at 8 pm sharp), on meals such as pot-roast venison (it has its own farm with a herd of 300 fallow deer) made with fresh Irish ingredients. Ecofriendly measures are promoted alongside luxury at Coopershilll: electricity comes from renewable resources, low-energy lightbulbs are used, and rainwater is mixed with the estate's spring water and filtered for use. You can also sign up for an hour-long 'Hawk Walk' with a falconer which costs €50.
