Experience luxury in a historical setting

relax in true 17th Century style


Welcome to Meares Court. This historic Georgian family country home is set on 200 acres of working farm complete with its own private forest, a walled garden and stunning grounds.  A luxury holiday retreat on a peaceful private estate with a picturesque lake, perfect for that special gathering of family or friends. This magnificent property offers a tranquil base that allows you to experience the relaxed pace of life in heart of Co. Westmeath.

In 2022, the house commenced a refurbishment project which included the dining room, drawing room, seven bedrooms and ensuites.  To capture the essence of its predecessors, Meares Court are reviving the rooms with consideration for the modern-day visitor, whilst keeping the tradition and authenticity of a bygone era intact.

The estate is a haven for birds and wildlife. Our friendly deer roam freely and are a special favourite with our guests. You can explore the grounds and enjoy the natural beauty on foot, or we can cater for your more adventurous spirit and entice you with some rally driving across the back fields.

This 17th-century house it’s not so much a guesthouse but a home from home. You may choose to lounge in front of an open fire in the drawing room or kick back with a well-deserved drink from the select bar. Filled with original antique furniture, the large rooms all have high ceilings and spectacular views of rolling countryside from every window.  

The bedrooms are television and radio free to complement the peace and tranquillity of the house and to complete your escape from a busy world.
