Run by Margaret Edgill, Mount Briscoe is the quintessential Irish dream; a full modern restoration of a 1750’s house. It is a working organic farm and Georgian Country Farmhouse located in the heart of Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands near the town of Daingean and just two kilometres from Ireland’s unspoilt inland waterway the Grand Canal with wonderful grass towpaths for walking.
Set in lush green countryside and steeped in history, Mount Briscoe is the perfect country getaway. If you love nature, conservation, architecture, history, animals, design and interesting folk you’ll love Mount Briscoe. Enjoy the wonderful home with its alluring decor, comfy beds and cosy country kitchen. Here you’ll find a beautiful wood burning stove and a cosy living room with plenty of interesting reading material.
