Moyglare Manor Restoration

The current owners began restoring the house in X. The property is extensive and is still a work in progress!

The Challenge

Unfortunately there was extensive dry and wet rot damage to nearly all of the structural beams in the house. They all had to be replaced, while the whole house had to be treated so it wouldn’t spread further. 

While removing these beams some literally turned to dust!

Much of the wooden staircase supports had to be replaced with steel.

Entire Guest Suite

Completed renovations and newly decorated as of summer 2020. Stay in converted stables, in an old world setting, at Moyglare House, built in 1760, which we have been restoring over the last six years.

The accommodation has an outdoor seating area and the grounds are extensive. It is very peaceful to sit outside and enjoy a drink or a bar-b-q. The gardens are a work in progress but there is a long avenue for walking and cycling.

Moyglare Manor Old Stables Main Bedroom
"This property is a little treasure on the Kildare/Meath border. Tastefully decorated with attention to every detail and set in the wooded grounds of Moyglare Manor, it is exactly as advertised and so much more. Spotless clean, we had everything that we needed.

Angela and her family were very friendly and helpful and we felt really welcome. The ensuite bedroom was ideal for our mum and both showers were divine. We were lucky to get one cracking day weatherwise and sat outside for most of the day in the sun chatting, listening to the birds and the sound of horses. All three of us look forward to a return visit. Thank you Angela."
