Costelloe Lodge - A Titanic Retreat
"He loved all wild and solitary places, where we taste the pleasures of believing what we see is boundless as we wish our souls to be." Percy Bysshe Shelley
Costelloe Lodge in Connemara is an Edwardian Country Residence with views overlooking the Twelve Pins Mountain Range, the Atlantic Ocean and the Casla River. A property steeped in history in a stunning location and capable of accommodating up to 16 people.
Recently purchased by its new owners, Costelloe Lodge has been lovingly restored true to its original Edwardian Heritage. The owners have personally and carefully restored this fine residence to its former glory.
This house was originally designed by Edwin Lutjens for Bruce Ismay the Chairman of the White Star, the company which owned the Titanic ship. As a keen angler, this beautiful part of Connemara was Ismay's chosen retreat following the sinking of the ill-fated Titanic. Landscaped gardens originally designed by Gertrude Jekyll offer a stunning palette of colour to the estate with all the flora and fauna having been carefully selected to complement Connemara's wild and natural beauty.
