My wife and I decided to take a small break from work (and the kids) and booked a 2 night stay in Rathsallagh. On arrival, Friday afternoon, we were met with the usual welcome that only the staff of Rathsallagh can give. The Lavender room was sumptuous , with a large en-suite bathroom . (The His and Hers sinks are a great touch as is the 3-head shower.)
We had booked dinner for that evening and arrived to the bar (in the main house) only to be met by our friends Kay and Joe O'Flynn (the owners). Joe, as only he can do, regaled us with his anecdotes until it was time for us to head to the dining room.
The food was 5* as usual and the dining room staff, whilst not being overly attentive, looked after our every need.
Next morning we woke completely refreshed and headed for breakfast. "Breakfast" is a misnomer when it comes to the Rathsallagh breakfast ! It's a culinary feast !
Satiated, we retired to our room for a rest before we took in the delights that West Wicklow has to offer. (as well as the Kildare Village Outlet Centre (for herself))
We reserved dinner again for the Saturday and once again we were not to be disappointed.
The only problem we had was trying to extricate ourselves from the bar and from the brilliant company of our hosts, Joe and Kay. The following morning's breakfast energised us for the trip back home but we didn't want to leave!
The only downside is that we didn't get to meet Joe Jnr (who is running the House and Golf Club on behalf of the family) this time around.
Maybe next time Joe!!
Congratulations to the O'Flynn family on maintaining the standards that other Country Houses can only aspire to.
See you all soon.
