The grounds here are full of lush greenery, wonderful views and character. The hotel is clean and the service was spectacular. The carriage house is charming and there is so much history in the tour. Breakfast was very nice. This is a family business and they take pride in showing their guests the treasures that exist on this property. Service was not in your face but very subtle. Perfect combination of history, relaxation and excitement. Truly felt welcomed while we stepped back in time to steal a glimpse of Irish history.
