Considering you had to pay to get in Id advise you not. This place could be great but in fact is a terrible advertisement for Irish tourism.
We arrived at 3.00 pm four days ago on a Monday and made straight for the restaurant. The smell of the toilets met us. Because we had children I had to visit the loo. Filthy. My child would not use the toilet. I complained at Information and was told ' oh sorry, they always get dirty by this time'. Well do you know what? If you pay 8 euro in you are at LEAST entitled to clean facilities. If you know something is going to be dirty by 3 o'clock then you clean it before then. A total disgrace.
The food was boring and substandard, the furnishings cheap, staff inexperienced and tables dirty.
Overall a really sad and unprofessional operation. I would never go back or recommend it to anyone.
Beautiful grounds, courtyard and house - it's trying to be everything and is doing nothing well. Decide on what you want to excell at and do it. The current set up is dreadful.
