What a fabulous place to stay. My wife and I had two amazing days at Roundwood, walking in the Slieve Bloom Mountains and visiting Kilkenny. The accommodation, food and hosts were the best we had on our two week trip to Ireland. The House is from the Georgian era and is absolutely stunning, surrounded by beautiful gardens (and animals). We have never fealt so relaxed and away from the hustle of big towns. Frank and his wife were just amazing, and such fun to listen to. We ate both nights with all the other gusets and got such an insight into Irish (and International) culture.
Go there and enjoy.
ps I can't believe the previous review that this is an ordinary B&B. I can not thnk of anything less ordinary. My wife and I find all of our accommodation through Trip Advisor and thank god we did not see the previous review before we selected our accommodation
