Property Features

Abiding elegance, exclusive charm

The Carriage House faces onto its own sunny enclosed granite and cobblestone courtyard, surrounded by a cluster of outbuildings dating from the early 1700’s.

The conversion from coach house to home has left arches where giant doors once hung filled with picture windows painted plum in contrast to the pumpkin flushed walls.

A glazed entrance lobby leads to a bright and intimate living room. The space is furnished with a delightful collection of antiques, books, paintings and ornaments that tempt scrutiny.

Rough plastered white walls and well worn wooden columns remind us of a more utilitarian time. The house enjoys sustainable under floor heating on the ground floor, but there is also a wood burning stove for cosiness.

​The spacious kitchen and dining area retains some stable detailing in iron grids, fittings and bruised door posts.

An archetypical pair of oculus windows light up the exposed joists and ceiling that echo the deep tones of the walnut kitchen cupboards.

The generous dining area opens through a small parlour into the garden courtyard, and the combination of informal spaces positively encourages entertaining.

Bedrooms

The upstairs double bedrooms retain the original rustic stone walls and tiny windows. The master is ensuite, and the second is served by a family bathroom.

Outside

The property is reached via a long driveway that runs in from the Royal Canal.
The secluded courtyard with its shady pergola is perfect for summer Barbeques and entertaining.
Surrounding buildings originally served as the coaching stables for Luttrellstown Castle Estate, and adjoin the renown Beech Park walled gardens, which were developed by David Shackleton in the mid 20th Century, and are now also open to the public.

Shackleton Garden is open to the public from 10am to 3pm, Monday to Thursday, and from 9am to 1pm on Fridays.

Facilities

The house is equipped with everything you would expect in a luxury home, including CCTV. A gourmet cook is available on request to cater for dinner parties – we require 2 weeks’ notice though.

Out and About

Just 20 minutes from Ireland’s capital, with its mixture of historical highlights, remarkable restaurants and classic culture – there is something here for everyone.

Things to do

The Locality

The nearest shops are in Clonsilla Village only a half a kilometre away, with the expansive Blanchardstown Centre just past them. Trains to Dublin Connolly Street run from the station at the end of the driveway about every 15 minutes in rush hour, and less frequently throughout the day.

The Royal Canal passes by the end of the property, running for 145 km it links the River Liffey to the River Shannon employing 46 locks along the way.

The Phoenix Park is very close and well worth a visit. One of Europe’s largest city parks, it is home to a herd of some 500 Fallow Deer. A number of significant buildings share the park including Farmleigh House and the home of the Irish President, Aras an Uachtarain, where Winston Churchill lived his early childhood.
Dublin Zoo occupies 28 hectares of the park and is a major attraction for visitors and Dubliners alike.

For a family day out the Tayto Park half an hour from the house has Europe’s largest wooden roller-coaster.

On the way in to Dublin you may like to visit Kilmainham Gaol now a museum, where many Irish revolutionaries, including the leaders of the 1916 Easter Rising were imprisoned and executed.
The Book of Kells in the old library building of Trinity College is a must-see for all visitors to Dublin. Containing the four gospels of the New Testament illustrated in interlacing patterns of vibrant colours, the book is believed to have been created around 800 AD.

The Brazen Head is Ireland’s oldest pub, dating back to 1198. They have live music every night but the most popular music event is on Sunday afternoons, when a band provides the music encouraging talented customers to demonstrate their vocal prowess.

St Stephens Green at the heart of the city is visited by more than 8 million people every year. It is an oasis at any time, but is especially pleasant during summer months when artists display their paintings around the railings.
