What a delight to find this lovely house at the end of a little country road. The house is a fine example of the Irish Country house. My wife and I spent two nights in the comfort of the George Bernard Shaw room. It's probably strange to call a bedroom majestic, but that's how it seemed - crowned by a... More

What a lovely welcoming homely place, really warm and friendly staff who could not do enough for you. Gorgeous lounge areas areas open fires, interesting decor.

We travelled with two adult children and had two wonderfully decorated rooms. A very personal and truly caring service and a great kitchen made our stay a wonderful experience. We arrived in the afternoon and did a nice tour of the peninsula with beautiful walks along nearby beaches that got us hungry for dinner. We were really baffled by the... More

This relatively small hotel retains all the character of a wealthy landowner's home. What we liked most was the choice of several beautifully furnished sitting rooms with ample space for guests to relax in front of blazing log fires. Our room was spacious and tastefully decorated. I had only one compaint - the lack of tea/coffee making facilities in the... More

We got a fabulous las minute deal for a room here and it was absolutely superb. The setting is stunning and we enjoyed a walk through the extensive grounds, after which staff were on hand to welcome us back with complimentary tea and home made shortbread in front of a roaring fire in the drawing room - bliss!

We received a warm, friendly welcome on arrival and the outstanding hospitality continued throughout our three night stay. We were shown to our room which had an ensuite with a... More

We have come to this hotel for several years as an eight strong male group bent on enjoying ourselves and drinking all of their best wine . The hotel has a strange downstairs lay out of several drawing rooms with roaring fires , but we love the small bar , the calm unhurried service and their ability to tolerate raucous... More

Went with a group of 58 for meal out 5th February. The setting, stunning as always, big log fires on. The food was amazing. Service was excellent. Nothing you could fault. First class from start to finish. If I were to mark food out of 10 I would give them a 12.

I was here for a wedding in October and had the vegetarian option with lentils and it was absolutely delicious. It was the best food I have eaten at a wedding. Top notch. Friendly staff and lovely country house atmosphere.
