Luggala

by Robert O'Byrne | 11 September 2018
Synopsis
Nestled in a secluded Irish valley, Luggala is an exquisite eighteenth-century house at the centre of a 5000-acre estate. In 1937 Ernest Guinness presented Luggala to his youngest daughter, Oonagh, who described Luggala as 'the most decorative honey pot in Ireland' and made it the centre of a dazzling social world that included painters, poets, scholars, and socialites. In the late 1960s she passed the estate to her son, the Hon Garech Browne, who has not only maintained but surpassed his mother's gifts both for hospitality and for bringing together a wide range of creative talents. Robert O'Byrne recounts this fascinating story, which celebrates both the unique beauty of this place and the many celebrated names irresistibly drawn there, from writers like Robert Lowell, Seamus Heaney and Ted Hughes, to actors such as John Hurt and Daniel Day-Lewis, and above all musicians.
