Castlecoote House, home of the Percy French Summer School, is a wonderful early Georgian Palladian mansion built on the grounds of a ruined 16th century castle overlooking the beautiful River Suck. It is surrounded by woodland and the pastoral countryside of County Roscommon, Ireland.
Castlecoote House, circa 1690, has been lovingly restored by some of Ireland’s finest craftsmen. The result is a romantic hideaway which combines elegant 18th century architecture, beautiful Georgian features, fine plasterwork ceilings and marble fireplaces with the 21st century luxuries of whirlpool spa baths and underfloor heating.
Outside are beautifully landscaped grounds. Take a stroll along by the river savouring the tranquillity of the beautiful River Suck, which is renowned for its coarse and trout fishing. Or perambulate through the orchard enjoying the rare apple trees, castle ruins and mill race walls.
For the more active, there are two tennis courts on the grounds and a croquet lawn. Walking and horse riding are available locally and there are several 18 hole golf courses nearby.
