Property overview

Nestled neatly at the foot of the Slieve Bloom mountains is the stunningly beautiful and unique Slieve Bloom Estate. This extraordinary 300-year-old house is bounded by extensive gardens with terraces, water features, woodland and lakes. The demesne is situated in County Offaly in Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands, halfway between the Georgian town of Birr and the medieval town of Roscrea. This is an area steeped in history and rich in natural amenities and leisure activities. Close by are the River Shannon, Grand Canal, Birr Castle with its world-renowned telescope and gardens, and a myriad of other castles, ancient monastic and medieval sites.

Accommodation

Slieve Bloom Estate is a magical place, offering 6 ensuite bedrooms with the possibility of hosting up to 18 people. During your stay enjoy the period bedrooms and breakfast in the beautiful formal dining room each morning. A further three double ensuite bedrooms are available for your guests in the newly renovated Gate Lodge. The estate at Slieve Bloom now encompasses a total of 140acres, comprising of both farmland and woodland, with 30 acres relating to the main house and its extensive gardens. Within the gardens is an integrated gravity-fed water system providing running water to the fountains, waterfalls, ponds, canal and artificial lake.

Location

Offaly has two main attractions. The first, Clonmacnoise National Monument, is a monastic site founded in the 6th century by St. Ciarán and now home to relics and a wonderful museum full of high Celtic crosses. The other is the Demesne Castle in Birr, a 17th-century fortress that sits on a lovely sculpted garden and houses a historic science centre that traces some of the great and otherwise oddball contributions to Irish science, the pinnacle of which is the Great Telescope, a rather unsettling looking contraption that was once the largest telescope in the world. Much of Co. Offaly's natural beauty is settled into the Slieve Bloom Mountains, which cross the southeast section of the county along its border with Tipperary. This area is rife with hillwalking, fishing and birding opportunities, while the River Shannon flows down the west side of Offaly, offering boating and angling opportunities.
