An expansive two story rural Farm House brimming with exotic personality and charm, this home sits comfortably alongside an enduring racehorse training enterprise in the heart of County Kildare – Home of the Thoroughbred.
Host to Ireland's Premier Flat Racecourse, and bordering the Wicklow mountains, The Curragh is less than an hour from the centre of Dublin City. The home sits on 10 acres .The property is part of a successful racehorse training operation

Die Unterkunft
For a time during the 1960’s American socialite and racehorse owner Liz Whitney Tippett invited friends, including actors Burgess Meredith, Gregory Peck, John Houston, Bing Crosby and others here to the 18th century farmhouse that she had converted for the purpose. The stud was purchased by Mr and Mrs Stuart Murless in 1970 and was initially operated as a successful boarding operation for leading international breeders including H HThe Aga Khan and more recently as a racehorse training facility, currently operated by Mr Johnny Levins. Many racing luminaries have visited including racing knights Sir Noel Murless, Sir Henry Cecil and Sir Michael Stoute.
And it is that same sense of privilege that permeates these rustic, stone walls today. This is a home that is no stranger to entertaining.

Zugang für Gäste
A warm inviting reception room stretches through the central part of the L shaped cottage host to a couple of generous sofas and imposing fireplace. At the far end of this space, a formal dining area is dominated by a slender antique dining table of polished ancient oak boards and a unique spiral staircase accessing the upstairs master en suite.
The kitchen, which occupies a space at the end of the house, is the usual entrance. Country cottage in style with Aga range, pine presses, table and ceiling, and a rugged glazed brick floor, the room morphs into a relaxing living area at one end, with open fireplace and TV.
An accommodation wing with supplementary entrance lobby has a spare family bathroom, and an additional living room complete with kitchenette, that links a twin bedroom and a spacious double both en suite. There is also a twin room with wc and separate bathroom.
On the garden side of the house a large comfortably furnished teak framed conservatory is a veritable sun trap and opens onto a large patio and garden.
Guests are not allowed access the Racing stables to the rear of the property or the paddocks to the front or the side but very welcome to enjoy the wood walk around the perimeter of the property

The Curragh Racecourse is within sight of the Curragh Stud, an easy 5 minute drive. Punchestown Racecourse, the Home of Irish National Hunt racing and the venue of The Irish National Hunt festival run over five days, from Tuesday 30th to Saturday 4th May is also very close by. The Curragh is Ireland's Premier Flat Racecourse, hosting all five classic races in the calendar. It is currently undergoing a state-of-the-art €70 million re-development and will reopen on Saturday 13th of April. The first of the Seasons Classic races, the 1000 guineas and the 2000 guineas will be run over the weekend of the 24th to the 26th May, The Irish Derby festival takes place from Thursday 27th June to Saturday 29th June and the second leg of the Champions weekend featuring the Irish St Leger is run on Sunday 15th September, with the Irish Champion stakes run the day before at Leopardstown racecourse, just a 35 minute drive up the motorway. The Curragh Stud is a Racing aficionado's utopia with a training center on its grounds and the unique Curragh gallops outside the gate!
There is a large and rare area of undisturbed wetland adjacent to The Curragh known as Pollardstown Fen. A zig-zag boardwalk has been built through the marsh which makes for a very pleasant morning jog or evening stroll.
Kildare town has a fine 13th Century Cathedral and round tower. The tower is the 2nd tallest in the country, and one of only two that can still be climbed – inside, a series of long ladders between wooden platforms eventually bring you to the top, and an awesome view.
Today Kildare town is probably best known for its Designer Outlet Retail Village, 'Kildare Village' which attracts thousands of shoppers in search of luxury premium brand bargains.
