You can’t walk around the grounds of Cloughjordan House without feeling steeped in Irish history. The house itself has been there for over 800 years, dating back to as early as 1214. It’s covered in a colourful Virginia creeper residual from the historic Hodgins’ Arboretum and nursery gardens that the grounds were once famous for. The property has been in the hands of The Baker family since 1914 when they purchased it from the Hodgins family. In 1922, free state soldiers occupied the house and evidence of their target practise can see be seen on an ancient tree outside.
The staff at Cloughjordan House are locals too, with that deeply rooted sense of country hospitality. we all take pride in creating a warm, welcoming ambience. We employ up to thirty six staff during our busy periods, some of our more permanent faces are below.
