Arrived in snow flurries here after dirve down one of better parts of Ring of Kerry.
Snow in garden, setting right on the sea, snow on the mountains and palm trees, reflection of sun on water - just mindblowing.
Hotel nice mix of old world and new, very very friendly and efficient staff. Room had old windows overlooking sea, worried it would be cold - but wasn't! No bath in superior rooms :(
Food in both restaurant and bar was very good, wine selection a little pricey. Walks in their grounds - highlight of trip! They own small forest and lakes and several islands by coast with mapped walks, amazing views, widlife, everything. Like several grand masters rolled into one.
Spa was ok, outdoor hot tubs in the snow nice.
