About the property

Beaufort House And Cottages Can Accommodate Up To 30 Guests In 15 En Suite Rooms

Set in 40 acres of woodland overlooking the River Laune, 10 minutes from Killarney and just off the Ring of Kerry, Beaufort is an historic Georgian House, built in 1760 by the De Moleyns family around the ruins of a Coolmagort Castle, which was built in the 16th century and was attacked in 1653, the west wall being demolished. The three remaining walls of the old castle now form the hallway of the House which makes it probably the oldest inhabited space in Kerry

Beaufort House has four luxurious en suite bedrooms all of which can be kingsize double or twin bedded. Jane's Room, at the top of the stairs, overlooks the lawn and

has the Blue Bathroom with tub and separate shower stall. The Yellow Room, usually considered the master bedroom, has views to the River and Mountains,. The bathroom has a tub with overhead shower,

The Parrot Room, so called after the 18th century hand painted prints which decorate the walls, also has an over tub shower. The Courtyard Room which overlooks the Georgian courtyard, gets the evening light and has a bathroom with tub and separate shower.

The Yellow Drawing Room has comfortable seating , a Georgian chimneypiece and a hearth populated with the Fire Pigs. a family of Victorian lead animals.

The Green Library is a great room for relaxing. It has satellite television and a selection of board games as well as lots of books. If you look carefully on the walls you will find a print of Edmund Ludlow, the Cromwellian General responsible for knocking down the wall of the castle and signatory of the Death Warrant of King Charles the First, whose portrait hangs over the fireplace. He is hung upside down as a punishment.

The Red Dining Room is a great place for formal or informal dinners. The table seats up to 16 people and additional tables are available to seat up to 30. It has a Georgian chimneypiece and is hung with family portraits. The dark red walls make it a wonderfully romantic setting by candlelight. The Hallway, formed from the walls of the 16th century castle, is a great setting for musical evenings with groups of local musicians..

The fully equipped eat in kitchen has double oven, gas hob, microwave and dishwasher. For those who do not like to cook on holiday a wide range of catering options are available from a precooked food delivery to a formal dinner for 20 or more,

There is free Wi FI.

The Georgian Stone courtyard has been converted to four luxury cottages.

Laune (4 bedrooms), Flesk (3 bedrooms) Keal and Torc (both 2 bedrooms) offer a further 11 rooms giving a capacity of total 30 guests.

As with the House all the rooms in the cottages have en suite bathrooms and all can be kingsize double or twin bedded.

Laune Cottage has a ground floor bedroom. which, whilst not equipped for the disabled, is a useful option for the less mobile.

The cottages all have fully equipped eat in kitchens, sitting rooms with satellite television and hi fi and utility rooms with washing machines. There is free Wi fi throughout the property.

It should be noted that the House and Cottages have no shared facilities so it is only necessary to take as many units as you require - we can accommodate any number from 1 to 30.

The House and Cottages all have barbecues.

We are the ideal location for family gatherings, activity holidays and for those seeking seclusion.

We rented out the entire property for a special celebration with family and friends. It was everything I was hoping for. The house and cottages are lovely and extremely comfortable. The grounds and views are beautiful. The hosts/owners are extremely gracious. I wouldn't hesitate to return.
