Thornhill Manor

Thornhill Manor House, a 10,500 square foot classical Palladian design residence, was built in 1995 adhering to modern construction standards.  The three story main residence building consists of 8,500 square feet incorporating five formal reception rooms, eleven bedrooms, and appropriate support rooms  -  butler's pantry, working kitchen with adjacent pantry, guest and staff bathrooms.

An additional 2,000 square foot wing forms a courtyard at the rear of the residence.  This area contains a three-room apartment with bath, tack room with bath, laundry and furnace rooms, a stable with three horseboxes, and two-vehicle garage.

The spacious eighty acre setting offers a bucolic privacy with rolling lawns, stonewalls, mature woodland and mountain views.  Thornhill Manor is situated in an area of historic estates, e.g., Guinness family's Ashford Castle, Moore Hall, home and estate of John Moore, recognized as Ireland's first President, and Westport House, the seat of the Marquis of Sligo, now open to visitors. The property is sixteen miles from the Knock International Airport, and thirty miles to Galway City. 

There are several 18-hole championship golf courses in the immediate vicinity. Two packs of foxhounds are within boxing distance. There are excellent primary and secondary schools available to Hollymount.  Galway City enjoys an international reputation for culture, most particularly theatre, dancing and music, and is the location of the National University of Ireland, Galway campus.
