A REMARKABLE HISTORY
The Faithlegg estate has a remarkable history in itself. It was the seat of the Aylward Family for 500 years at Faithlegg Castle. In 1177 King Henry II granted it to the family who held the castle and lands until they were dispossessed in 1649 by the armies of Oliver Cromwell and given to William Bolton. In 1783 Cornelius Bolton built the magnificent Faithlegg House; In 1819, due to financial difficulties, the Bolton family sold the house and lands to Nicholas and Margaret Mahon Power, The Powers adorned the estate with the stag’s head and cross, which was the Power family crest. It remains the emblem of Faithlegg to this day.
The mansion was considerable enlarged in 1873. But they couldn’t have imagined the splendor it is today with its swimming pool, award-winning spa, gym, champion 18-hole golf course, tennis courts, kids playground, beautiful bars and dining rooms.
Faithlegg’s proximity to the city underpinned demand for its parkland golf, its holiday homes and especially as a location of choice for luxury living.
In the late 1990s Faithlegg was acquired by Irish developers and builders McInerney plc: the original 1780s house was restored to its former glory at no little expense into a luxurious four-star hotel which is now operated by FBD Hotel Group. Then came the 37 large detached family homes scattered about the parkland course, in choice settings with 1 The Fairways occupying the very best site.
