A delightful period property set on approximately 1.3 acres of enchanting gardens, Greenhall Lodge can be found in Tinahely, Co Wicklow – nestled right beside the River Derry.

Built toward the end of the 19th century by Lord Fitzwilliam, the property was originally constructed as a hunting lodge for the Coollattin Estate; Greenhall Lodge was the lady’s lodge at the time. 

Steeped in history, it is believed that Elizabeth – Empress of Austria – stayed at Greenhall Lodge whilst on a hunting trip to the Coolattin Estate back in 1880. Painstakingly refurbished and extended in recent years, the home perfectly balances old-world charm with modern conveniences.

The property is accessed by way of a small wooden gate, with a short drive leading up to the front of the home. A bright entrance porch leads the way inside where you’ll find original quarry tiled flooring. Bright and airy, the white paintwork gives the impression of space.

Further inside is the sitting room with a feature marble fireplace, timber flooring and bay window. Warm and welcoming, this is a cosy room in which to unwind after a long day. Sliding doors connect this room to the study where you’ll find another feature cast iron fireplace, panelled ceiling and recessed lighting.

The kitchen has been fully fitted with modern units and appliances. Standout features include a granite workshop, a Belfast sink and slate flooring. This room opens onto the dining room where a large table and chairs sits in front of a cast iron fireplace. 

The sunroom has fully glazed French doors that open onto the gardens. 

A utility room with shelving and a bedroom with ensuite complete the accommodation on this floor. 

The master bedroom is on the first floor. Fitted with built-in wardrobes, solid timber flooring, recessed lighting and featuring its own private dressing room and shower room ensuite, this room has lovely views over the garden below. 

The other bedroom on this level has a cast iron fireplace and timber flooring. The main family bathroom – with both a corner bath and shower unit – can also be found on this level. 

To the rear, a gravelled patio area is the ideal space for entertaining guests.

Standing at the northern extremity of the Coollattin Estate, Greenhall Lodge can be found between the villages of Tinahely and Shillelagh. Across the river are the ancient oaks within Tomnafinogue Woods, the last surviving of the great Oak Woods of Coollattin and the most picturesque backdrop to the property. 

Surrounded by woodland walking trails, the home is a nature lover’s dream. The Derry River forms one boundary of the beautifully landscaped gardens which comprise areas of mature trees and shrubs, extensive colourful ground cover interlaced with paths, a patio area off the sunroom, areas of lawn and a beautiful gazebo ideal for al fresco entertaining. 

Nearby amenities include various leisure pursuits ranging from horse riding to golf and hill walking with the coast just a half-hour drive away.

A wonderful reminder of times gone by, Greenhall Lodge is currently on the market for €795,000. Viewing is highly recommended and can be arranged through Warren Estates in Gorey. In the meantime, take a tour of this charming Wicklow home in our gallery below.
