Coole Lodge is the last remaining gate-lodge of the Coole Estate which was home to Lady Augusta Gregory, one of the key figures in the Irish literary revival movement.
Over two hundred and thirty years old, the gate-lodge dates back to the late 1700s when Robert Gregory purchased Coole Estate on 18th June, 1768 from Oliver Martyn of Tullira Castle.

What a lovely and homely place. Absolutely amazing what you have done in restoring this beautiful building. We very much enjoyed our stay. Thank you!

A delightful spot to come home to after each day of adventuring, but this place is an adventure all on its own! Love all the decorations and story behind everything. Thank you!

Thank you so much for having me here. It is a very special place for our family and the house has a lovely charm. It is very special to have three different generations of the Gregory family here at once – thank you!

A huge thank you to Henry and his family for allowing people to stay in this wonderfully restored cottage.
We all (six of us) loved our stay.
Everything was wonderful. The rooms are cosy and the grounds are lovely.
We were greeted on time, shown all around the house and how to use things.
The food wine and chocolate was a great surprise, and very appreciated.Thanks again, I’m sure we will be back!
