Good Hotel Guide Review

Peace and quiet surround the O’Hara family’s Georgian mansion, which stands in great expanses of woodland and pasture for sheep and fallow deer. Now in the hands of Simon and Christina O’Hara, the seventh generation of the family, ‘the small stately home has the easy grandeur and graciousness of more than 200 years of continuous occupation – no hotel furnisher could simulate that’. In a dining room hung with 18th-century family portraits, sit for dinner at a table set with Irish crystal and silver. The limited choice four-course menu uses garden fruit and vegetables in season, and venison from the estate. ‘We ate too well.’ Retire, afterwards, to one of the large, antique-filled bedrooms, each furnished in period style. In the bathroom: robes and slippers, luxury toiletries and a roll-top bath or walk-in shower; the taps produce natural spring water. There’s no TV or radio in the room, but newspapers and a selection of novels make good company. Wake to views of the River Unshin or Keashcorran mountain, then tuck in to breakfast (with home-baked bread and home-made yogurt) before heading out into Yeats country. ‘A special place.’ (CG, and others)

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.
