Castlecoote House

The Percy French Festival has taken place annually since 2009 at Castlecoote House, the home of the festival founder, Kevin Finnerty, whose father was a founder member of the Percy French festivals of 1957 and 1958.

Originally built around 1690 in the grounds of a 16th century castle incorporating two of its four towers. It evolved into an elegant 18th century Palladian house, encircled by the beautiful River Suck and is surrounded by woodland and the pastoral countryside of County Roscommon, Ireland. In 1989 its interiors were destroyed by fire, but it has since been lovingly and authentically restored by some of Ireland’s finest craftsmen. The house enjoys the status of being scheduled under the National Monuments Acts and provides an idyllic, historical setting for a holistic engagement with the life and works of the remarkable, Percy French.
