Coach House at Butlerstown Castle.
The Coach House.
The Coach House at Butlerstown Castle affords you the opportunity
of relaxation in elegant yet affordable accommodation
in a small country house steeped in history. Situated on an
elevated site in the grounds of Butlerstown Castle (seat
of The Sherlock Family 1450-1650) which now lies in
ruins. Located off the main Waterford to Cork Road ( N.25 ) and just
three miles from Waterford City, the Coach House was built
in 1874 by the Northern Nationalist, Samuel Ferguson.
In recent years the house has been tastefully restored and extended
to provide our guests with en-suite accommodation in seven bedrooms (most
of which have a King size bed ), with direct dial telephone,
colour T.V. and tea/coffee making facilities. Many of our bedrooms
also have commanding views of the surrounding countryside,
Castle and mountains.
