Elegant Ireland offers you the best of this enchanting country. Not only is the Elegant Ireland private rental portfolio made up of the most incredible historic private castles, manor houses, and contemporary villas across the Emerald Isle, but the team has an extra special talent for securing privileged access to stately homes, private gardens, and behind-the-scenes attractions that go unmentioned in guidebooks. Our UltraVilla Ireland expert has an intimate knowledge and specialist care that goes unmatched.

The private houses that Elegant Ireland offers are meticulously selected and represent the best within their geographic region and property category. Each has its own distinctive character and has been visited and approved directly by the team. Some properties come lock, stock, and butler; others are rented on a self-catering basis with staff optional. All are unique and all are exceptional. 

Elegant Ireland has an exquisite collection of castles and stately homes which are mostly period houses of immense character. Some of these are private country estates, grand castles and mansions, while others are on a more intimate scale, such as carefully restored medieval keeps and period homes located in breathtaking, tranquil settings. Many of these enchanting properties are surrounded by graceful gardens and parkland; special gems with indefinable charm.

Within the collection of manor houses and villas are medium-sized period properties built from the Victorian era to modern homes. The Victorian period had a strong influence on Irish society, architecture, and design, and thus these homes, constructed by the wealthy class that emerged at the time, are a unique and often flamboyant expression of their prosperity. Some guests prefer to stay in Irish contemporary homes which are more minimalist and restrained yet extremely stylish.

Lastly, Elegant Ireland also has an excellent range of holiday cottages and apartments. These quaint cottages and smaller houses are ideal for couples and more intimate groups of up to eight guests. You could stay in a charming thatched cottage on its own private island in West Cork, a quaint cottage set on a long sandy beach, or a gate lodge nestled within sprawling private woodland.

In addition to these sublime luxury holiday rentals, Elegant Ireland can curate your full holiday itinerary with bespoke tours covering a wide range of interests, including art, archaeology, architecture, houses and gardens, history, folklore, and literature.

For a warm Irish welcome, a high level of personal service, seamless planning, and once-in-a-lifetime tours at stunning properties, Elegant Ireland exceeds expectations.
