Bartholomew’s Loft

Bartholomew’s loft can sleep up to 5 guests. It has 2 bedrooms with 3 beds and 1.5 bathrooms. Kick back and relax in this calm, stylish upside-down space. This Irish loft is perfect for all occasions including romantic getaways, family breaks and groups get together.

When you stay here you are surrounded by history with architectural and design heritage ranging from the 1700s right up to the 1980s. However this does not mean you will be stuck in some sort of time warp. WIFI is excellent and free, heating is zoned and timed and our Dimplex electric fire creates a fantastic ambiance in a few seconds.

The Story of Bartolomew’s Loft

It is the epitome of modern comfort in a 200 year old farmyard setting. With parquet floors, salvaged timber clad walls and Chesterfield couches, Bartholomew’s oozes luxury, comfort and style. Every corner of the loft has an interesting feature from the home office area with a genuine 1940’s bankers desk and the1950’s bright orange kitchen.


Upside Down Bright Living Space

The first thing of note in Bartholomew’s Loft is that it is an upside down living space. The double and triple bedroom are on the ground floor as well as a WC and wetroom with beautiful encaustic tiles. Every nook and cranny tells its own story with parquet hall floor saved from a local cathedral and iconic mid century antiques and bright vibrant colours.

Speakeasy Style

Upstairs, a lofted ceiling! Views across the farmland with cattle and sheep grazing in the fields greet you with a real 1950’s feel to the fully kitted out kitchen. Off the kitchen, setting the loft apart is the sitting room. With its ambient tones and Chesterfield suite it has a feeling of real luxury…a little secret perhaps like an old speakeasy that nobody else knows about. A place for a little glass of whiskey perhaps or a nice cup of tea, a chat or a good book.

Antiques and Original Art

Throughout the loft you will find art and antiques that we have gone to great lengths to find. A mannequin, for hanging the dinner jackets from a local castle. Original artworks from Irish artists and real historic pieces are all here to enjoy. The desk or workstation, if required, is an original 1940’s bankers desk with high speed broadband, We cannot wait to show both Bartholomew’s Loft and Marianne Cottage to you.



The bedrooms are both downstairs, as well as the main bathroom with its handmade floor tiled wet room. The larger bedroom has both a double and single bed while the smaller has a double bed. Stop to look out the huge window at our beautiful Highland cattle or Jacob sheep grazing the pastures. At the top of the stairs is a large fully equipped kitchen/dining area.

We leave out fresh farm eggs from our own hens for our guests, the perfect start to a day that can be filled with walks and discovery around our abundance of local castles, abbeys and natural beauty spots or perhaps as a hearty breakfast after a night enjoyed in our beautiful “speakeasy” style lounge, just off the kitchen. This room is the essence of moody luxury, with leather sofas, Scatterbox feather cushions and velvet armchairs.

It is perfect for a good book and a glass of wine, a good movie or perhaps a get together with a group of friends and G n’ T’s. As with Marianne Cottage, Bartholomew’s Loft is child friendly (highchair and travel cot) and safe (the stairs has a properly fitted permanent stair gate). We leave out lots of toys and we happily welcome guests of all ages!
