Having read the previous review on 'Griesemount' by ' trevyrlady '- we were shocked. We have stayed with Carolyn & Robert at Griesemount many times in the past few years and always throughly enjoyed our stay there. Griesemount is a charming authentic period house and hense displays many original feautures including antiques and curious collected from all over the world. The four poster bed we slept in was amazingly comfortable, the electric blankets are a bonous, we had breathtaking views of green pastures and a nearby old mill from our traditional sliding sash windows - where we watched cows grazing, this view could also be seen from the spacious ensuite and the dining room where Carolyns breakfasts are a delight and not to be missed -Freshly squeezed orange juice, free range eggs & homemade jams etc. Carolyn & Robert are great hosts, very helpful & will give you so much of their time Carolyn has some very intresting stories & they have always made us feel very welcome like part of the family. The peace and tranquility is awesome considering how close you are to Dublin city! -frankly we always try to stay there if we are in the vicinity of Dublin /Naas.This place is always very clean and tidy -I dont think the other reviewer understands period houses and maybe next time they should try the Holiday Inn if they want plasma screens and mod cons!
