Picnic on Benbulben’s Head: 2 Nights at Coopershill House, Co. Sligo


If you're looking for a genuine, romantic, grand Irish country house with comfort, character and sublime cooking, then you're going to love Coopershill in Co. Sligo. Coopershill has been in the O’Hara family since it was built in 1774 and they have been welcoming and entertaining guests for the last 244 years. A stunning mile-long avenue crossing the river Unshin and winding through ancient woods and deer pastures on the 500-acre private estate bring you to this fabulous Georgian mansion. Warm hospitality, original antiques, spacious bedrooms and views from every window create an oasis of peace, quiet and relaxation. Dinner is a highlight, served at candlelit tables set with family silver and crystal. With their own vegetable and fruit gardens, most of the vegetables come out of the ground just metres from the dining room! 

Climb majestic Benbulben and enjoy a delicious picnic on top of the world. The climb up & down takes approximately 4 hours and requires good, waterproof walking boots and wet weather gear. The reward is more than worth the trouble: breathtaking views of Sligo's Knocknarea mountain, Coney Island and the Slieve League cliffs in Donegal. A four course Coopershill dinner always tastes that bit better when you've earned it!

Included in the offer:

- 2 nights' bed & breakfast

- 1 four-course dinner

- Maps & directions

- 1 picnic
