Collon House is situated in the centre of the pretty village of Collon. Dating back to the 1740s, it was once the home of John Foster, the last speaker of the Irish House of Commons.
In 2014, Collon House won the An Taisce first prize for conservation and restoration and is a member of ‘Hidden Ireland’ for its award-winning, boutique bed and breakfast accommodation.
Visitors wishing to see the garden, will find an secret gem designed in the style of the mid C18th, with sunken box parterres, clipped to perfection; pretty herbaceous borders and a courtyard filled with large pots of all kinds of hostas. A Greek style summer house completes the picture, in this truly charming retreat.
Historic tours of the house and garden can be arranged with tea/coffee/cake on arrival €18 pp; lunch/dinner also available by arrangement.
