Opening times 2020

WELCOME!

Visitors have always been welcomed to Corravahan House…

CEL car Corravahan 1904 IE Picasa clean-up…. BUT, as a result of our current public health crisis, we have had to severely restrict access.

Covid-19 restrictions and admissions.

In order to honour our commitment to giving visitors an opportunity to visit during Heritage Week 2020 (15th-23rd August), we can offer guided HOURLY tours of the house to PRE-BOOKED, small, family groups only. Maximum of 6 persons, with no more than 4 adults, all from the same “family”. Total fee per tour is €20.00.

All participants will be required to wear facemasks, and otherwise to follow the usual sanitary protocols.  We regret that we cannot offer toilet facilities.

Bookings on a strictly “First-come” basis 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.

The gardens (only) may be visited separately, for a fee of €5.00.  To safely control numbers, we’d ask that you advise us of your intended visit, in advance, on 087 9772224.

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.
