Craigmyle is a three bed, two bath cottage set in an old coachhouse in the courtyard of Williamstadt House. The Cottage has all the charm and beauty of centuries past, yet boasts all modern conveniences as well. Set on ten acres of beautiful parkland near the banks of Lough Derg, Craigmyle Cottage is both a peaceful retreat and a marvelous location for exploring not only the best of "hidden" Ireland all around it but popular destinations as well. Do come and experience it's authentic loveliness!

The space

The coachhouse was built in 1774 and the courtyard is quite unique
and boasts a large fig tree, grapevine,bamboo and a magnolia grandiflora.
There are ducks and chickens wandering around the place, and guests are welcome to feed them grain and will find themselves quite popular with the fowl.

Guest access

The courtyard, driveway, orchard, as well as a forty acre wood across the road from the property.

Interaction with guests

We can suggest as well as arrange any manor of things to do and see.
Carole has been known to take her guests sightseeing and recommending her favourite parts of Ireland.

Warning! You could simply fall in love with the place!

Carole and Kevin were excellent hosts. Their country property surrounded by farm land and near Lough Derg was beautiful, comfortable and welcoming. Carole gave very helpful advice about places to visit and Kevin was quick to offer a cup of coffee or glass of whiskey, along with lively conversation. We were sad to leave and look forward to returning one day.

My boyfriend & I wanted tranquil Break Away...near Lough Derg. And we got a beautiful Olde World Cottage in Whitegate. Anything we needed was there wth Fab antiques too. Located down small road and 5 mins walk to Harbour. Romantic place. Only (URL HIDDEN) bit of drive frm Cottage itself in Scarrif. We would deff stay there....again. Top marks to Carole & Kevin

Wow. Just wow. Cannot say enough good things about this beautiful property and its wonderful hosts. My boyfriend and I stayed for seven days and wished we could stay forever. The cottage is well-appointed and cozy, and the views are gorgeous. Everything was extremely clean and as advertised. The property itself is breathtakingly beautiful. We would wake up every morning to chickens and ducks in the yard, and of course the dogs - Walter and Sally, who were the best dogs we've ever encountered. Carole and Kevin are some of the most interesting people we've ever met, and they went above and beyond to make us feel at home. They truly treated us like family. We got engaged during our stay there (and what a gorgeous place it was to be proposed to), and they made it feel like a celebration with champagne and a card - incredibly touching. The town of Whitegate is small, but very picturesque. Much like our hosts, the people we encountered were nothing but extremely hospitable. If you're looking for something relaxing and beautiful without being boring in the slightest, we cannot recommend this place enough. We are already looking forward to a return trip.
