Having stayed with two other couples in the main house in belle isle in nov 08 we were highly impressed by the wonderful house original paintings including landseers and decent food. The fire was lit in the drawing room before dinner where we gathered for drinks before being seated for dinner in the baronial dining room as we were the only guests it was a remarkably enjoyable experience.Hhoping to book again this year we attended this week to arrange another booking for 8 on driving towards the house we were effectively attacked by a member of staff. His anger the reason for which was not explained was such that my american guest was concerned for her safety. Needless to say we will not be returning and must say that it is almost tragic that perhaps the finest blue book property with its remarkable Hicks interiors and authentic Anglo Irish experience is staffed by such an apparently troubled angry and rude member of staff.
