House is listed as a heritage house and has passed to Susan Kellett
by inheritance. Its elegant plasterwork and elliptical staircase
are renowned. Family portraits, antique furniture, good food and
wine, all contribute to the pleasant, relaxed atmsophere.
The house is on the shores of Lough Conn, with attractive views
of the lake across the parkland. The old walled garden is being
restored and another garden produces organically grown vegetables.
Outbuildings contain a small agricultural museum and a genealogy
centre that researches names and families of Mayo origin. The fishery
manager can make all arrangements for trout and salmon fishing in
the area; tuition is a speciality. Three golf courses and riding
stables are within easy reach. The house is a good base for touring
Mayo and Sligo.
