Welcome to Gloster House
Nestling at the foot of the Slieve Bloom mountains is the stunningly beautiful and unique 300 -year-old Gloster House. It is surrounded by extensive gardens incorporating terraces, water features, woodland and lakes, Gloster House is a magical place.
The house and gardens are available as an exclusive private venue for corporate functions, family celebrations and weddings.
Gloster House is referred to in many architectural and historical publications. The house has been extensively and sensitively restored in recent years, and has now retained its former glory.
The demesne is situated in County Offaly in the very heart of the Irish midlands and halfway between the Georgian town of Birr and the medieval town of Roscrea. It is an area steeped in history and rich in natural amenities and leisure activities. Close by are the River Shannon, Grand Canal, Birr Castle with its world-renowned telescope and gardens, and a myriad of other castles, ancient monastic and medieval sites.

We had our wedding at Gloster House in July this year and it was absolutely the best decision we could have made! The venue is spectacular – so many of our guests told us it was the best wedding venue they’d ever seen. Tom and Mary are the perfect hosts, combining a personal approach with the utmost professionalism.Gwen & Peter. July 2017
We cannot recommend Gloster House enough as a unique venue to get married in! For us, other venues did not even come close as Gloster allowed us to shape the key things we liked (with a personal touch) versus an off the shelf offering.Linda & Sean. Aug 2016
We had our wedding in the beautiful Gloster House, and I cannot recommend it enough as a wedding venue. Gloster House is a truly special place and we feel very lucky to have had our wedding there. It was a fabulous day and If we had to do it again we would not change a single thing.Hazel & Alex. Sept 2016
We visited lots of potential venues. Gloster House was the first we viewed and none others came close for us – as a venue it was absolutely stunning, and we, our friends and our family were very well looked after by Mary, Tom, Nigel and the rest of the team on the big day. Highly recommended!Sinéad & Niall. Oct 2016
