Accommodation & Meals

What to expect from your accommodation at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre. 

The Big House

The comfortable rooms in the Big House include a bed, writing desk, and a chair. Each has its own charm and character with a unique selection of books, ornaments, and paintings. All rooms are en suite, and bed linen and towels are provided.

Farmyard Cottages

The five unique cottages situated in the farmyard are self-catering. There is a full kitchen in each, with an electric cooker with hob, under counter fridge, microwave, kettle, pots and pans, cutlery, plates, cups and saucers. Each cottage has a living room/workspace, bedroom, kitchen and shower room with handbasin and toilet. Sheets and towels are changed once a week.

Couples must apply on an individual basis for a residency in the farmyard cottages.

Cottage 5 has two bedrooms and is adapted for universal access. While there is a charge for use of the second bedroom in Cottage 5, it does not apply to carers.

We have a sixth self-contained unit beside the Big House which is adaptable for use by a Resident and a carer, if required.

Meals in the Big House

Residents in our Big House are full board - bed, breakfast, lunch, and evening dinner. As a result of health and safety regulations owing to Covid 19, we are not in a position to offer self service breakfast and lunch, as previously. Breakfast and lunch will be served. Dinner is served at 7pm every evening, as per the stipulation of Sir Tyrone Guthrie's will.
