Good Hotel Guide Review

In a vast swathe of woodland and deer pastures, the ‘easy grandeur and graciousness’ of the O’Hara family’s Georgian mansion is unmistakable. ‘Helpful, welcoming’ hosts Simon and Christina O’Hara are the seventh generation of the family to occupy the stately home. ‘We like guests to feel they’re visiting old friends who happen to have a country house,’ they say, and guests reciprocate: ‘conversations flow easily’ between visitors. Log fires burn in the drawing room and dining room; original paintings and antiques abound. The traditionally furnished bedrooms bask in period elegance – two Georgian four-poster beds in the original master bedroom; a Victorian roll-top tub in the Yellow Room bathroom. Eat well in the dining room, where ‘O’Hara ancestors look down from their portraits’. Christina O’Hara (regular guests will remember her as Chef McCauley) cooks home-grown feasts, perhaps including Coopershill venison medallions, juniper sauce. Breakfast has much choice: home-made bread and jams; a full Irish in any combination. Stroll about the estate, afterwards, crossing meadowland and river. (CG)

Guest comments

'We enjoyed it immensely. It was a privilege to be welcomed into the easy grandeur and graciousness of a small stately home. We were the only guests on the first night, so dined in state with log fires and ancestral portraits; next night brought other guests and conversation flowed naturally. We ate too well. Simon and Christina are rightly proud of their home-made, home-grown and locally sourced food. Simon was helpful about excursions. Coopershill has a worthy place in the Guide.
