About the home
Castlecoote House is an early Georgian Palladian mansion built on the grounds of a ruined 16th century castle overlooking the beautiful River Suck. It is surrounded by woodland and the pastoral countryside of County Roscommon, Ireland. Castlecoote House, circa 1690, was destroyed by fire in 1989.
It has been lovingly restored by some of Ireland’s finest craftsmen. The result is a romantic hideaway which combines elegant 18th century architecture, beautiful Georgian features, fine plasterwork ceilings and marble fireplaces with the 21st century luxuries of whirlpool spa baths and underfloor heating. Outside are beautifully landscaped grounds. Take a stroll along by the river savouring the tranquillity,or perambulate through the orchard enjoying the rare apple trees, castle ruins and mill race walls.

The Central Ireland / County Roscommon region
One of Ireland's undiscovered counties is that of Roscommon, in the heart of Connaught
in the west of Ireland. Roscommon offers peace and tranquillity in an idyllic landscape of lakes, rivers and wooded countryside. The name Roscommon stems from the Irish word 'Ros' meaning a gentle terrain with plenty of trees and 'Conman', the name of the county's famous Irish saint and the first bishop of the See.
Bound by the extensive waterways of the River Shannon and Lough Ree to the east, the River Suck in the west and Lough Key in the north, County Roscommon is a haven for lovers of boats, watersports and of course, angling. Cruising on the water in Roscommon is one of the most enjoyable ways to discover this unspoiled pocket of Ireland. Visitors can also discover a rich heritage of early colonization in Roscommon with many burial grounds, megalithic tombs and ring forts. The royal burial site at Rathcroghan was also home to the kings of Connaught and later become home to the high kings of Ireland. Extensive boglands are found in the west of the county providing turf for winter fuel.
County Roscommon boasts of magnificent preserved forested land with abundant wildlife open to the public. Lough Key Forest Park near Boyle is 350 hectares of mixed woodland, lakes, islands, medieval priories and a castle. It is one of the most picturesque locations in Ireland.
