The Estate

Finnebrogue Woods and lake once made up the pleasure gardens of the Finnebrogue House, and still bares traces of what went before. With its 30-acre lake and specimen trees, the land was acquired by Ed’s grandfather in the early 1960s.

The farm has since been managed with passion and dedication by Ed’s Dad, Nick, who still looks after his beloved Dexter cattle while leaving the new and exciting events side of things to Ed & Rachael.



For the past 25 years, Finnebrogue Woods has been supplying seasoned hardwood logs to clients in south Down. Our firewood is seasoned by a natural drying process that takes at least a year. This ensures a sustainable, efficient and clean-burning product.


Dexter Cattle

With aims to keep the farming tradition alive here, we are managing a selective breeding programme which produces premium quality beef.

We are pleased to report that our herd of Dexter cattle have increased from five to 90 in recent years.

For most of the year our little Dexters graze happily outdoors, providing the type of stress free environment which is central to our farming practice.



Our 30-acre lake at Finnebrogue Woods is filled with a plentiful supply of trout. Though currently managed by a local fishing club, we can arrange a second-to-none fly fishing experience that your guests, clients or staff are sure to cherish.
