Triumphal Arch Lodge is a Grade B Listed Building and is part of the Colebrooke Estate. The estate has a long history dating back to the 1640s when a large portion of confiscated land at Brookeborough was given to the Brooke family as a reward for services during the 1641 rebellion. The estate has remained in the Brooke family ever since and has been home to many notable military and public figures including Field Marshal Viscount Alan Brooke and Northern Ireland Prime Minister Basil Brooke, 1943 -1963.
In 1786 the post Chaise Companion described Colebrooke as "a very fine and delightful seat" but Sir Henry Brooke had grand plans for this wooded demesne and from 1819 the eminent Dublin architect William Farrell was commissioned to redesign the main house, park and estate buildings including two gatelodges one with an ambitious entrance arch.
The gatelodge and Triumphal Arch entrance were designed to complement the great house beyond and make an impressive approach to the estate, while at the same time showing the taste of the Brookes and acting as an introduction to the grandeur that was to come.
HEALTH AND SAFETY:
Our buildings were made to the standards of earlier times – and sometimes without the intention that they should be lived in. Consequently, you may encounter features that reflect their particular character but that deserve due care and attention, particularly by the young, elderly, less mobile or visually impaired. Examples of these are steps worn with age, uneven surfaces, low ceilings and beams, unexpected drops or changes in level, and by modern standards low or absent lighting. In all cases we have sought to make a sensible compromise between due regard for safety and the careful retention of the fabric of each building, which makes it an interesting place to stay. We ask you to appreciate and use the building with this understanding. If you have any queries about the property you are interested in and would like more clarification, please contact Irish Landmark at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Triumphal stay at Triumphal Arch
“A special place in a great location, made even better by house manager Louise, who was so friendly and attentive. We saw jazz at the local theatre, pottered around Enniskillen, and visited Florence Court, The Argory, and Castle Coole. Slept like a baby for four nights in really comfy beds!”
A Wonderful Place
“From the head office staff to the local manager the service is second to none and the standards high. The lodge provides a wonderful blend of stepping back in time with all the modern-day necessities. A great location So peaceful and relaxing. We will return again and again.”
