Visitors have always been welcomed to Corravahan House…
The House is now open to scheduled tours for Spring & Summer 2023.
Please contact us if you, or your group, would like to visit outside these dates. We will try to facilitate you, by appointment.
Thanks for your interest!
Covid-19 restrictions and admissions.
In order to honour our commitment to affording visitors an opportunity to visit during 2023, we can (until further notice) offer guided HOURLY tours of the house, commencing at the “top of the hour”. We prefer a maximum of 6 persons, with no more than 4 adults, all from the same “family” party. Minimum fee per tour is €20.00.
Admission priority will be given to pre-booked parties.
N.B. THE ABOVE ARRANGEMENTS ONLY APPLY WHEN PERMITTED UNDER GOVERNMENT ADVICE AND GUIDELINES.
All participants are welcome to wear facemasks, and otherwise to follow the now-customary sanitary protocols. We regret that we cannot offer toilet facilities.
Bookings may be made on 087 9772224. We hope that you’ll take the opportunity to view the “architectural gem” that is Corravahan House. We guarantee to make your visit an enjoyable, stimulating (and safe!) one.
09.00-13.00 daily (14.00-18.00 on Sundays). Last admission one hour before closing.
We look forward to meeting you,
Ian & Rachael.
