Full Description

Millbank is a late 18th century Georgian Country House which has been tastefully restored and extended in recent times. It was originally part of the demesne of Sir Charles Henry Coote (1815-1895), whose personal residence in Ballyfin was just a short carriage ride away. From about 1840 to the 1970s, Millbank was home to a bustling flour mill and was one of the county's largest producers of flour in the mid 19th century. Today, Millbank comprises the main house, with 5 large bedrooms (accommodation for a maximum of 13 people), reception rooms, library, swimming pool, sauna and steam room. Just 50 metres from the main house is the Miller’s Cottage with 3 cosy bedrooms overlooking a courtyard that once was noisy with the traffic of grain and flour traders.

Set in 6 acres of mature woodland, the gardens offer a poignant reminder of the history of the property and the people who lived and worked there. The lake and millrace that that powered the giant mill wheel more than 150 years ago provide a much more tranquil atmosphere these days.
