The Hayloft


This beautifully renovated apartment sits within the heart of the estate  on the historic Tay valley demesne, and  introduces unique opportunities for exploring the beaches and headlands of Ireland’s Copper Coast, the Waterford/Dungarvan Greenway, hill-walking in the ‘Comeragh Mountains,  enjoying three golf course situated in the Dungarvan area, or just rambling around a magnificent estate.

A beautiful, bright and airy kitchen and dining area is at the heart of The Hayloft. With every modern appliance available this is the perfect space for enjoying relaxing meals with family and friends. Leading off the kitchen is the colourful sitting room which has a range of comfortable sofas and chairs, an open fireplace and a huge 75 inch flat screen TV. The Hayloft has three double bedrooms and one twin room – all ensuite. A second snug with a sofa and TV makes the Hayloft a comfortable, spacious property for a family getaway.

The Hayloft is situated within the farm court yard opposite a museum of the historic Woodhouse Estate ranging for 340 acres west from Stradbally Village. The property is bisected by the meandering river Tay, which swirls through the lower part of the estate and escapes under the road bridge for a final dash to the Atlantic.    156 acres of woodland comprising more than 150,000 trees – some dating back to the mid 18th century – await exploration either on foot or on cycle tracks.

Stradbally Cove with it sheltered sandy beach is across the road from the Gate Lodge entrance to the estate.

 The owners occupy the eponymous Georgian mansion at the center of this private estate, but visitors are free to enjoy the walled garden, impeccably reproduced Victorian glasshouse and paddocks of grazing red deer.

  • Following weeks of lockdown, we looked forward to the country opening up to travel again.   The Hayloft was everything we wished for……. Countryside, beaches, gardens and a most beautiful place for our family to gather again.  We enjoyed walks, tennis, swimming and great evenings at the kitchen table.  We thank the owners for the beautiful Woodhouse Estate and all the staff for their courtesy and kindness. We have wonderful memories.

  • We booked this week away during lockdown so we were really looking forward to a break away.  We brought our family which now includes our 2 grandchildren one of which is nearly 2.  He had a ball in this lovely house, as did all of us. We enjoyed the wonderful estate, lovely walks and swims in the local beaches.  The Hayloft really suited us and everyone loved the space. We will be back!!!! Thanks to all the Staff for all their help. We also enjoyed the duck eggs every morning. We all had a wonderful week with every comfort provided in The Hayloft.

  • Wow! This place has exceeded beyond all of our expectations.  Feel so lucky to have stayed in such an amazing place.  Having stayed in a lot of 5* hotels over the years, none come close to the attention to detail of this property.  The interior decor is just dreamy and no stone has been left unturned in the layout, design and interior.
