Rating: Dogs Allowed

Bookeen Hall is a 200 year old church offering luxury guest accommodation and breakfast in a unique location - make yourself at home in a place rooted in history.

Your Stay At Bookeen Hall:
We are dog lovers and share Bookeen Hall with our 2 dogs. We love having dog guests and their owners stay - dogs sleep in our guest rooms, and dog beds and treats are provided as part of your stay. A large fenced garden and woodland walks right next door offer lots of opportunities for your dogs to explore!

We are committed to making your stay both meaningful and memorable. Indulgent breakfasts will set you up for the day and afternoon teas on your return will refuel you. Made from scratch with local ingredients. We promise you’ll be well fed!

Bookeen Hall is all yours for the duration of your stay – as we host only one group / family at a time.

Our accommodation is simple and elegant:
The space has a calm and relaxing feel. When it’s shining, the sun streams through the large Gothic windows. Bedrooms are large, airy and individually decorated with vintage Irish lace and Foxford & Killarney Woollen Mills throws. With views over the surrounding fields and woodland, bedrooms have access to a private bell tower or balcony.

Sit in the garden - read or listen to the sounds of the surrounding countryside - wood pigeons, mooing cows and the occasional travelling fox

Walk or run on woodland trails or a brave a bracing wild swim in Loughrea lake

Return to hot tea and turf fires lit for your arrival......and always cake!

After dark stargaze from the bell tower with no light pollution.
