Coolcarrigan House & Gardens, Co. Kildare
Coolcarrigan is a hidden oasis on the edge of the Bog of Allen, with a fantastic 15 acre garden full of rare and unusual trees at the end of a long avenue. A small church in a woodland setting, surrounded by a moat, is available for hire for weddings.
The house is now occupied by the 6th generation of the same family. An attractive Georgian house built in the
1830's, originally used as a shooting lodge.
The church was built in the 1880's also by Robert Mackay Wilson. It has some very interesting stained glass windows and Gaelic scripts on the walls chosen by Douglas Hyde, the first President of Ireland. There are regular Sunday services held.
The farm is a mix of cropping, grassland and forestry.
