Guests stay with us here at Currarevagh for a multitude of reasons; perhaps on a first whirlwind tour of Ireland you only have one day to cover as much as possible. Or maybe this is a much needed escape from the Dublin grind to zone out, recuperate and do as little as possible.
So if your stay is all about relaxing ignore most of this: we have lots of space to sit back in our drawing rooms, deck chairs for when you find a hidden corner outside in the gardens, and rugs you can laze away on somewhere by the lake or in the woods.
Here at Currarevagh –
- Explore: Maps of our 180 acre estate with lots of private walks;
- Boating: Our own clinker larch boats for guests use only. Easy to row, you don’t have to go far to find a deserted island all for yourselves;
- Outboards are also available (cost is E80.00 per day and experience essential);
- Fishing on the lake; see drop down menu for more info;
- Wild Swimming: there is a perfect spot for this by one of our piers. For the brave from October to March, doable in April and pleasurable from May to September. Water is crystal clear;
- Bird Watching: we have lists of birds, books and many can be spotted in this EU Special Area of Conservation; - Croquet on the lawn… most make the rules up ;
- Billiards: we have a bar billiards table, one of only 2 in Ireland. Easy to learn, highly addictive;
