The day after St. Patricks Day my wife and I were treated to a night away by her cousin.
My wife's grandparents stayed there and we new it had lost it's magic during the 1990's and early 2000's.
However, we arrived on Friday 18th and had a room in the main house which was fabulous.
OK. The TV's aren't flat screen. But who watches the TV where you're in a "dream world" as George Bernard Shaw once called it. We were helped by the weather which was beautiful on the day we arrived. However, Peter Brennan's food was fabulous. Service on the whole was excellent although breakfast staff were rushed off their feet which meant slow service. But with weekend breakfast served until 11, and check-out at 12 on a Saturday, no need to rush.
And with the pianist in the piano bar playing The Kinks and Neil Young amongst others, we left the bar at 1.30 with staff still serving.
Having popped into the rather characterless Sheen Falls Lodge where service was indifferent (asked for no egg in €16 club Sandwich and ham was out of a packet) on the way back to Cork there is only one place to go if they keep up the Service. and that is Parknasiila.
