(Images used are a true representation of the resort; however individual rooms/views may differ from that shown.)

This unique and exclusive development was originally built in 1834, and is centred around a grand Georgian house and superbly converted court yard residences.

The main three storey, five bedroom estate house sleeps up to eleven persons with three double bedrooms, two ensuite and two single rooms and separate bathroom, with a large living / dining room with fireplace, separate library bar and well appointed lounge situated on the first floor, the estate house is of ample size to comfortably accommodate a large family group. The natural interior finishes make you feel you are really living in a traditional estate manager’s residence of the nineteen century.

Within the court yard facing the garden, there are two three bedroom units with large first floor living/dining areas restored to their original red brick walls and vaulted ceilings. All of the large bedrooms are ensuite and furnished in the style of the period. The three two bed units are unique, one is situated on the first floor which was the south wing of the main house, again this has been restored with its original flag limestone floors, red brick walls and vaulted ceilings. The other two bed units are located in what was the estate coach house and many of the old features have been retained including the beautiful cut stone arched entrances and high ceilings, while the bedrooms have been renovated to the height of comfort.

Last, but not least, there is the single bedroom unit which is quite exceptional as the ceilings in both the living/dining area and bedroom are of vaulted red brick which, being of such unusually intricate work, has baffled the developers as to their original usage dating back some one hundred and seventy years. Overall, the guest will find the design style is cozy, relaxing with warm tones and restful décor throughout.

The intimate garden is laid out so that you can sip a glass of wine in the surroundings of a courtyard that carries the weight of a turbulent Irish history in every one of its cut limestone blocks, or simply get to know the other guests or just enjoy eachother's company and listen to the birds singing in the peaceful countryside.

On a clear day the Church bells in Tulla can be heard and as the local story goes; they were donated by the Moloney Family on the one condition that they could be heard from Kiltanon House. The first set of bells cast in 1870 were not audible from there and had to be replaced with a different set to meet the criteria.

Up to 2 dogs are allowed per unit for a fee of €65 per week,
Enjoy all the craic of rural Ireland in this delightful County Clare location. Small villages dot the landscape, each with their own pubs with friendly locals with exciting tales to tell. Enjoying the local atmosphere is one of the most exciting parts of any Irish holiday, but the area also abounds in sights and activities to enjoy.

Nearby are ruined castles and abbeys to explore, and some of Ireland's most famous tourist attractions are within an easy car journey from the resort. The Burren with its spectacular limestone scenery and sea cliffs is around an hour away, while Lough Derg and the river Shannon offer great boating and fishing opportunities. To the south, the Dingle Peninsula and the world famous scenery of Co. Kerry are also within easy reach.
