Wells House and Gardens

Originally built in the 1600’s, the property boasts over 400 years of history. In the 1800’s, while in the ownership of the ‘Doyne’ Family it was redesigned by renowned Architect Daniel Robertson in a Tudor Gothic style. It is one of the best examples of this style in Ireland. 

Approached by a tree lined avenue, the property sits in the middle of the estate. It is a three storey over basement property with a floor area of 2,150sq.m. (23,140sq.ft.) and boasting over 40 rooms. The main reception rooms have decorative panelled walls & ceilings, original fireplaces and large recessed sash windows with shutters. The main staircase is extremely impressive as is the library which features three hidden doors posing as book casing. The most stunning of all the rooms is the drawing room with its white panelled walls in ‘fontain blue’ style which is believed to have been gifted by the Queen of England. The first floor comprises 8 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with access to a further 9 rooms and a bathroom in the attic. Below the ground floor is the basement which consists of another 12 rooms and store rooms.

The property also comes with a craft courtyard and five self catering chalets. Alongside the house is Mrs. Stone’s restaurant which can seat up to 100 patrons. Robertson Hall which is the most recent addition on the grounds can accommodate private functions for up to 160 guests. 

Wells House & Gardens sits on C. 185 acres, C. 70 acres of which are agricultural lands. The remainder is in gardens, yards and woodland walks which have been constructed for visitors. The entire estate is bounded by three public roads giving it over 5km of road frontage. 

Wells House & Gardens was opened up to the public in 2012 by its current owners. Since then they have been continually upgrading and restoring the property both inside and out.
