If you enjoy staying in places that are that little bit different then you’ve found the perfect spot. This Victorian house has real character and a chequered history. Of the surviving nineteenth century buildings in Magherafelt, this is one of the most recognisable and interesting. It has featured in the European Heritage Open Days scheme and is regarded as one of the landmark buildings of Magherafelt.
The house as it stands today owes much to the work of Mary Kielt, Eugene’s late mother, who purchased it in 1961 from the Kilroe family. With her family, including her late daughter Dymphna, she transformed it into the guesthouse that has, over the years, become synonymous with Magherafelt.
Over the past thirty years Gerardine and Eugene have put their own special stamp on the house, creating features and facilities inside and out that make it such a special, boutique place to stay.
For all its rich and lengthy history guests have indicated it has a really warm and homely feel that is so often lacking in modern hotels or in stately homes.
