Founded in 1954, An Grianán is run by the Irish Countrywomen’s Association as a centre for learning, personal development and recreation. They provide educational enrichment in an atmosphere which is conducive to friendly dialogue and social interaction, fostering a love of traditional art and crafts such as Crochet, Carrickmacross and Limerick Lace, Embroidery, Jewellery, Lumra, Macrame, Rushwork and many more.
Both residential guests and day visitors can make the most of An Grianán’s beautiful surroundings, exploring the beach, indulging in a round of golf or a game of tennis or simply taking a walk in the stunning grounds. And when evening comes, you can enjoy meals prepared with local ingredients and adjourn afterwards to the residents’ bar enjoying live entertainment.
From quiet breaks away in The Sanctuary, Boot Camp fun weekends, romantic Wedding Ceremonies & Receptions, high level business conferences, family celebrations to holidays away, this is a venue for everyone – whatever you have in mind.
