Coolnacran is one of two apartments located in the old Coach House which has been extensively restored using local materials. The Coach House is part of a complex of buildings behind Loughbrickland House which also includes a byres (awaiting restoration) and stables grouped around a picturesque gravelled courtyard.
An archway leads into the old walled garden where each apartment has a designated patio area with garden furniture and there is safe playing space for children.
Coolnacran is situated behind the historic Loughbrickland House which has been in the possession of the Whyte family since the early 1700s. It is located less than half a mile outside Loughbrickland village and the Courtyard offers accommodation certified as 5 star standard (NITB).
Coolnacran is beside a large spectacular circular lake whose focal point is a ‘crannóg’ or artificial island originating as a place of refuge and retreat from potential invaders in Celtic times. Its position has been strategic since earliest times on this main north-south route which ran originally from Tara, Co. Meath, site of the court of the High Kings of Ireland, to the north coast.
The situation ensures that the village enjoys the best of both worlds – a sense of rural calm and tranquillity, but also easy access not only to major centres of commerce and employment, but also to places of major interest to the visitor as diverse as the cathedral city of Armagh and the Mourne Mountains.
Loughbrickland Historic Trail:
This trail on the very doorstep of the Coach House takes the walker not only on a journey through the village of Loughbrickland, but also through time, from the earliest traces of settlements in the area to the latest developments. It starts by the lake, proceeds through the village and into the grounds of Loughbrickland House; it circumnavigates the house starting from the front gate-lodge, going through the woods and past an impressive fort over 100 feet in diameter and then returning to the front gate via a different route.
