More About Coolamber Garden Workshops

Our day long workshops  will  take place in the outbuildings of the Historic Coolamber House, Lismacaffrey, Co Westmeath. 


At the heart of everything that we do is our passion in making your day here as enjoyable and educational as possible.

The House was built in the early 1800's and has a very rich and interesting history. Its was originally owned by the O' Reilly family. Percy Philip O'Reilly was an Olympic Polo player  and was part of the team that  won Silver for Ireland in the 1908 Olympics.

In 1947 - 2002 it became home to a member of the Royal family of Saxony. Prince  Ernest  and Princess Virginia. 

Three years ago we undertook the massive project of restoring Coolamber house and Gardens to their former glory.

We appreciate that you will understand that the gardens are in their infancy and this is a long term project.

We  are lucky to be able to call this magical place home and we look forward to meeting you at Coolamber and have you see and be part of our journey.!
