Issercleran (also known as St. Clerans) situated in Craughwell, Co. Galway is a two storey, late 18th century house. It was built by the Burkes in 1784 when they abandoned their ancestral castle nearby.
One of the sons of J.H. Burke, the builder of the new block, was Robert O’Hara Burke, who perished when leading the illfated BurkeWills Expedition across Australia in 1861. A statue in his memory is erected in Sydney, Australia for he was the first white man to traverse the continent from north to south.
Issercleran was inherited in 1914 by R. O’Hara Burke’s niece, who was the mother of the practical joker, Horace de Vere Cole and of Mrs. Neville Chamberlain. It was sold in 1954 and subsequently become the home of the late Mr. John Huston, the film director and wellknown follower of the Galway Blazers, who resold it c.1971. The old castle remains in the Burke Cole family.
Present owner Merv Griffin has carefully restored St. Clerans to its original splendour and decorated the house with art treasures from around the world. Twelve luxurious guestrooms offer modern amenities and breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside. Meals are served in the manor’s magnificent dining room where once kings, princes and Hollywood celebrities dined. This manor house hideaway is set in beautiful grounds with a meandering stream, woodlands and a par 3 golf course
