Property Description:

"One of the extraordinary things about Luggala is that it almost looks like a different place every single day." Hon. Garech Browne. Grandson of Hon. Arthur Ernest Guinness

 "The most decorative honey pot in Ireland". Oonagh Guinness

"......[Luggala] has turned out to be our inspiration." Bono, U2

 "The most beautiful place in the world. It has everything you need but without any external stimulant." Marianne Faithfull, English singer, songwriter and actress

Hidden inside a secluded Irish valley lies Luggala, an exquisite 18th-century house at the centre of an estate comprising some 5,000 acres.
Luggala nestles into a cleft at the northern end of the valley, its principal rooms looking south across a verdant sward towards Lough Tay. The white-washed exterior of the building serves as a counterpoint to the dense woodland that rises immediately behind and helps to make architectural details like the roof-line crenelations all the more striking.

Luggala is that special brand of eighteenth-century gothick that rejoices in little battlements, crochets, trefoil and quatrefoil windows and ogee mantelpieces, Indeed, quite like the gothick of pastry cooks and Rockingham china. In England such a style came to be called Strawberry Hill Gothic.
As the eighteenth century drew to a close the notion of picturesque in architecture became more popular and an alternative style of sporting lodge was sought. Luggala encapsulates the expression of that desire. The house 'boasts all the appurtenances of a grand castle' but on a miniature scale. There are battlements and crockets as well as a variety of pointed and quatrefoil windows together with other ornamentation such as the limestone obelisks embellishing the top of the main door and corners of the central, south-facing breakfront.

Inside a composite sequence of elements work together to produce a coherent whole. Within a modest footprint Luggala Lodge manages to contain 3 substantial reception rooms as well as a wealth of smaller chambers on both the ground and first floors, with the latter's size not being externally apparent. There are 7 bedrooms within the main house, 4 within the guest lodge and a further 16 bedrooms comprised within 7 estate lodges and cottages throughout the estate. In all the accommodation within the estate extends to some 1,521 square metres or 16,379 square feet.

The landscape at Luggala contains one of the few remaining 18th-century landscape gardens and includes two native Irish oak woods. Luggala is a place of primeval colours: the greys, greens and browns of the landscape, the darkness of the lake, the whiteness of the beach, the yellow of the primrose and the gorse, the contrast of the bluebells and the purple of the heather.

House accommodation 7,438 square feet or 691 square metres with 3 reception rooms, 7 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms
Guest House accommodation 3,207 square feet or 298 square metres with 2 reception rooms, 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. Further accommodation offered throughout the estate within 7 lodges or cottages.
In all 1,521 square metres or 16,379 square feet of accommodation provided throughout the estate and comprising 27 bedrooms and 18 bathrooms.
