Mr Pat Walsh
The elegant manor house of Becketts Hotel was the birthplace of Samuel Beckett's mother and is located in Leixlip County Kildare, a quick spin out from Dublin it offers 10 exclusive contemporary designed rooms in an idyllic setting.
Samuel Beckett, one of Ireland's most enigmatic and world famous writers, is part of the rich and varied heritage of Cooldrinagh House and Demesne, now known as Becketts. Beckett's mother May was born here on March 1st 1871.
Cooldrinagh House, in Leixlip County Kildare, was described by James Knowlson, Samuel Beckett's biographer, as "a very grand house, almost a mansion, dating from 1760, with imposing pillars at the front door, a flight of stone steps and a cast iron balustrade...". Today it has been fully restored in what can only be described as a highly unusual, contemporary and atmospheric way.
Becketts offers an ideal haven for residential guests with 10 exclusive contemporary designed rooms in an idyllic setting. Rooms are furnished to the highest standards ensuring guests comfort and relaxation.
The three luxury suites Becketts has to offer are ideal for the corporate guest both in comfort and practicality. The design and forethought put in during the renovation allowed for a boardroom style annex to be incorporated in to the suite, allowing the guest the convenience, comfort and privacy of a smaller meeting space withthout having to leave their room. There is also WiFi access throughout the hotel.
Once said to be 'West Dublin's Best Kept Secret', the Becketts restaurant is still West Dublin's best but no longer a secret! The spacious, stylish and light filled restaurant is set in three modern conservatories. This very popular and highly regarded restaurant serves a menu that draws inspiration from international sources with an emphasis on European and Irish cuisine and great value for money.
Becketts is located in Leixlip in County Kildare, a quick spin out from Dublin (approximately 18kms). Nearby is the Lucan Golf Course, Leixlip Castle and Carton House. Most of the major road networks are within a short distance of the hotel making it ideal for corporate and leisure guest alike.
