While Ireland may be known for its verdant pastures, the Northwest of the Emerald Isle is more Brontë than bucolic with its windswept cliffs offering a wild beauty unlike anywhere else in the country. Visitors seeking luxury amid rugged surroundings will be in luck, as the Coolmore Manor House offers a combination of modern amenities and Georgian splendor set against a beautiful backdrop of untamed moors and roiling seascapes.
While it is by no means impossible to reach via public transportation, Donegal’s wild and wide-open spaces practically demand use of a car—many of the county’s more rugged attractions only open themselves up to similarly-adventurous travelers. Those who are willing to brave the Irish Northwest will find an enchanting storybook setting: friendly horses, ancient villages, and life-affirmingly fresh seafood.
An entrant in the Relaxation Retreat category, The Coolmore Manor House’s commitment to relaxation cannot be overstated. The Manor House offers a variety of ways for any visitor to unwind. More adventurous travelers can take a leisurely hike for miles along the seaside cliffs dotting Rossnowlagh, as well as the numerous verdant paths within the Coolmore estate. If the weather is too wet, one can always curl up by the fire with a cup of tea or glass of whiskey. Coolmore Manor House’s dedication to relaxation does not end at home comforts, however: Daniela, the proprietor, is a licensed physiotherapist. In addition to the Manor House’s spa facilities, she offers an impressive array of massages and wellness therapies. Whether you are visiting for stress relief or in search of professional-grade treatment, you are in excellent hands.
