The story goes that the "The Hall" became the property of the Loftus family in the 1650s as a result of the Cromwellian confiscations and this was confirmed after the Restoration of King Charles II of England by the Act of Settlement of 1666. The building that exists today was built between 1870 and 1871 by the 4th Marquess of Ely.

In 1917 Loftus Hall was bought by the Sisters of Providence and turned into a convent and a school for young girls interested in joining the order.

In 1983, it was purchased by Michael Deveraux who reopened it as "Loftus Hall Hotel", which was subsequently closed again in the late 1990s. It was privately owned by Deveraux's surviving family until late 2008, when it was sold to an unnamed buyer. The name 'Loftus Hall' is also applied to the townland surrounding the mansion. The entire townland of Loftus Hall, including the building itself, can be overlooked from Hook Lighthouse.

Guests are given a tour of the grounds and on an interactive tour of the ground floor of the building detailing the history of the building, including its famous visitor!
