About Finola Cooke

A lawyer by profession, husband John and I fell in love

with Lisdonagh House Estate when we chanced upon it prior to the public auction. We were working and living in

London at the time and the discovery changed the course of our lives forever

Lisdonagh continues to be a labour of love for us to restore and maintain

this unique part of Irish heritage and to share the wonder

of this authentic Irish Estate with so many wonderful

discerning travellers looking for that extra special unique experience.

Finola Cooke purchased this chateau / country house in 1996

Why Finola Cooke chose County Galway

Lisdonagh House Estate is an early Georgian Stately Home

one of the finest examples in the West of Ireland

luxuriously restored and the setting very much as in

eighteen Century Ireland

the landscape beloved of prominent writers and poets

National treasure to cherish and delighted that we continue to make the house available for private rental for so many discerning house guests throughout the year

many prominent in their different fields

all come back again and again for that special sense of time and place that is "Lisdonagh" the jewel

of the West!

Cozy weekend with friends

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 19 stayed in Finola's house plus one of the adjacent courtyard villas for the weekend to celebrate everybody turning 40. We had a fantastic weekend and this is the perfect venue for a reunion. Finola organized catering for us one of the nights and the food was impeccable. It was such a treat to be cooked for and then retire to the drawing room for the evening where the fire kept us cozy all evening. A really memorable weekend and location. We'll definitely be back!
