in the heart
of the Lee Valley
Established in 1960 by Andy & Sheila Casey, Coolcower House has been open as a guesthouse for almost 60 years. Fast forward to 2019, the house is now run by Bernie O'Callaghan (Andy & Sheila's daughter) and family. This historic country house was built in the 1800s but was tragically burnt down in 1921. It was subsequently rebuilt in the traditional style and later a large glass conservatory & lounge bar were added, blending seamlessly into the original house. All 12 rooms are done to a high standard with all modern amenities one might want for a peaceful escape. TV, Hair-dryer, Hospitality Tray, Direct Dial Telephone, En-Suite bathroom included in every room.There is extensive parking, beautiful riverside and avenue walks and a range of activities available in the area.
Ideally situated in the center of Cork city and Killarney. Coolcower House is the perfect location to make fond memories with loved ones.
Sit back, relax and enjoy a pint in front of a roaring fire. Our bar
includes an extensive collection of Beers, Stouts and Spirits.
