The Carriage House

A charmingly quiet and refined country retreat available for holidays, events, corporate and relocation rental.

 

Flanked by the Royal Canal to the north and Beechpark and Luttrellstown Castle to the south, the Courtyard and it's Carriage House is hidden away from all the noise of the city, yet is 21minutes by train to city centre and 10 minutes from M50 and 25 minutes to Dublin International airport. 


The Carriage House forms the west side of an enclosed cobblestone courtyard and garden dating from the early 1700’s and originally part of Luttrellstown Castle. It backs onto the famous Shackleton Gardens soon to be open to the public.


The conversion from original carriage house to a beautiful home has left arches where giant doors once hung filled with picture windows painted plum in contrast to the pumpkin flushed walls. There is wheelchair access to the ground floor. Chauffeur service link available on request.

The spacious kitchen / dining area retains some stable detailing in iron grids, fittings and bruised door posts.
The dining room connects through a small parlor study into the garden courtyard, and the combination of informal spaces positively encourages entertaining.

The Carriage House enjoys "Preferred Supplier" status with Luttrellstown Castle Resort.

A glazed entrance lobby leads to a bright and intimate living room. The space is furnished with a delightful collection of antiques, books, paintings and ornaments that tempt scrutiny. Rough plastered white walls and well worn wooden columns remind us of a more utilitarian time. The house enjoys sustainable under floor heating on the ground floor, but there is also a wood burning stove for cosiness.

 

The upstairs double bedrooms retain the original rustic stone walls and tiny windows. The master is ensuite, and the second is served by a family bathroom. The house is equipped with everything you would expect in a luxury home.
