In 1937 Ernest Guinness presented Luggala to his youngest daughter, Oonagh - one of the three famous Golden Guinness Girls - following her marriage to the fourth Baron Oranmore and Browne. Oonagh described Luggala as the most decorative honey pot in Ireland and made it the centre of a dazzling social world that included peers, painters and poets, journalists and junkies, scholars and socialites.

In the late 1960s she passed the estate to her son, the Hon Garech Browne, founder of Claddagh Records, who has not only maintained but surpassed his mothers gifts both for hospitality and for bringing together a wide range of creative talents. Luggala Days celebrates both the unique beauty of this place and the many celebrated names irresistibly drawn there, from writers like Brendan Behan, Robert Lowell, Seamus Heaney and Ted Hughes, to actors and directors such as John Hurt, Daniel Day-Lewis and John Boorman, and above all musicians, including The Chieftains, Mick Jagger and Marianne Faithfull, Bono and Michael Jackson.

All of them have succumbed to the enchantment of days passed at Luggala.
