Dollardstown House has been the family for over forty years. After a lot of hard work and dedication we have decided to re-open it as a Bed & Breakfast and revive this wonderful historic home.
Dollardstown House is sitting in 20 acres of mature parkland, making it a haven of tranquility. Although the parkland is grazed by cattle, most of the gardens can be enjoyed by our guests. The Behan family always were keen gardeners; Andrew is a horticulturalist. And it shows. There are many plants and trees to be enjoyed. Some trees have been around since the times of Napoleon! (Nelson’s ship fighting Napoleon was made partly with trees from Dollardstown.)
Be welcomed with home-made scones and tea / coffee. In the morning wake up to the smell of home-made bread and freshly ground coffee. Whether you prefer a full Irish or an extensive continental breakfast, you can expect locally sourced foods prepared with dedication. We are happy to cater for special diets on request.
Come and join us for a heartwarming break in Co. Kildare.
Dollardstown House offers a place to really unwind and get away from it all – any time of year. Whether you are traveling in a group, with a friend, as a couple or in your own company, you will find a warm and homely welcome awaits you. We invite you to leave your worries behind and relax by our open fires.
In line with the character of the house we have made one television available in our drawing room but you won’t find televisions in the bedrooms.
