Beautiful hotel in beautiful surroundings. Big thank you to the housekeeping team who very kindly forwarded on a phone that I had forgotten to me. We enjoyed a meal in the Thai restaurant at the Club house. Food was great although pretty slow in arriving at the table. Waiting staff very friendly. I would return in a heartbeat.

However, on this Valentines day something very special awaited me as I was taken to Carton House for a midweek break. The grounds are fabulous, the boathouse, swans cygnets and the beautiful snowdrops bursting into life. We were greeted at...

This is a treat to give yourself and your family. We had family birthdays to celebrate. We are based in Dublin and Cork. This makes a two day weekend trip difficult. After many false starts including hotels and self catering all over the country, we settled on a night with dinner in the K Club. What a right decision! We...
