The Sitting Room is where our guests can make themselves at home. They can light the fire, have a drink before heading out or just sit and read a book. There is also Grand Piano which we encourage our guests to play (if they know how!)
We have beautiful gardens at the front of the house and at the back. Please feel free to have a wander around and enjoy the beauty nature has to offer!
We welcome you to our wonderful country manor home and encourage you to make it yours for your short stay with us!
This is where we serve breakfast. There is a marble fireplace which we keep ready to light and there are views of the front garden through the windows.
This is where we prepare breakfast for our guests. Guests are not permitted unless prior arrangement with management.
These stairs lead up to The Spiral Stairs Room. The room has two double beds and a single and is En Suite like all of our rooms.
Please be careful when driving here as we have small dogs who will run straight for your car! They are friendly little black pugs so please be careful! We try to keep them away from the drive but they are mischievous little creatures!
Please feel free to enjoy our sitting room! If the fire is not lit please let us know and we will get it ready!
History of Springfield House
In the historic town of Celbridge, records show Springfield dating from 1763, making this property over 250 years old.
In 1801 the house was leased to James Langrishe and his heirs. This family is mentioned by Aidan Higgins, who was also born in Springfield, in his book, ‘Langrishe Go Down’, (which BBC made into a film, adapted for TV). Morgan Sheehy used this a basis for his restoration of the house. Springfield is also noted in 'Ancestral Voices - The Big House in Anglo-Irish Literature' by Otto Rauchbauer.
Morgan and Libby Sheehy purchased Springfield in 1989 spending two years restoring the main house and grounds. With the sudden death of Morgan in 1992, Libby and their six children made the decision to keep their home by running it as a "Bed and Breakfast", which remains open throughout the year.
Celbridge has much to offer any visitor: from the home of Speaker Connolly of Castletown House, Muligan’s house, Lyons Estate, The Mill, The Abbey - where Jonathan Swift’s beloved ‘Vanessa’ Esther Van Homrigh lived and so much more, beautiful gardens, golf courses, fine dining, all within an easy reach.
