Rathfinny Wine Estate

Oh so close !!


From derelict barn…

On Monday 4th August I’m due to receive the keys from the construction company to our Flint Barn.  It’s such an exciting time for us all here at Rathfinny. Firstly let me introduce myself, I’m Adrian and I’m the new manager of the Flint Barn, I’ve been in the hospitality trade all of my working career, lastly with the charity accommodation provider YHA whom I worked with for nearly 24 years. I started work on the Rathfinny Estate in mid-June and I’m so excited about my new job and my role in developing the barn business and what we are going to offer to all the lucky people who stay with us on the Estate.  Watch this ‘blog space’ for regular updates and news about the Flint Barn.


During construction…

The building is looking so beautiful both inside & out and we will soon welcome our first group of customers at the end of August. In the future we will be using the barn for the accommodation of our seasonal pickers and pruners, out of those times we will be welcoming school groups, local & special interest groups and possibly families during certain school holidays. The building has been restored to a very high standard, it will truly be a home away from home for all our guests staying. The Flint Barn is built over 3 floors with accommodation on all levels, there are 10 rooms, which are all ensuite, with a total of 48 beds. The ground floor is the location of the stunning dining room, very comfortable and warm lounge and the Snug Room. There is a fantastic courtyard and this will incorporate a small café where, in the future, walkers of our Rathfinny Trail will be able to pop in and eat light lunches and ‘tipsy’ cream teas.

Exciting times ahead, I’ll be back here soon with an update on the first visit and also with some new pictures of the finished interior. In the meantime if you want further information or have any questions then do drop me an email on adrianl@rathfinnyestate.com
