Castle Coole - About

Castle Coole is a late 18th neo-classical mansion which is surrounded by beautiful scenery and located within a lovely woodland estate. Here you can enjoy relaxing walks across along the lake, marvel at the abundance of the estate's wildlife, and at the same time take in the peaceful atmosphere of the countryside.

Castle Coole is an ideal place for families, couples and all sorts of people. It contains a shop and a tea room. However there are also picnic facilities. And while you are there, why not take a tour of the house itself and relish its elegant architecture?

The estate was purchased in 1656 by John Corry (grandfather of the first Earl), and Castle Coole was built between 1789 and 1797 by Lord Belmore, and designed by James Wyatt. The house was owned solely by the Belmores until 1951, when the 7th Earl of Belmore transferred the mansion to the National Trust.

While you’re visiting Castle Coole, it is also worth visiting other local tourist attractions such as Crom Estate, Florence Court and the Marble Arch Caves.
