Spent a surprise night here last weekend for our fifth wedding anniversary and enjoyed it immensely. On arrival we were warmly greeted and shown to a lovely drawing room and given coffee and macaroons! As it was our anniversary we were kindly assigned the 'honeymoon suite' which was bright, extremely roomy and included a fab double corner bath and separate reception room. My only negative would be the lack of a blackout blind in the bedroom area which caused me to wake up quite early! As good as the room and the house and grounds were the food was the highlight for us both. The seven course tasting menu served by Dermot and his staff wasmost probably the finest meal I've ever had and put michelin starred restaurants in Dublin to shame. I won't ramble on about it but suffice to say I shall not be waiting another 5 years to return and sample it again. A lovely breakfast the next morning with terrific waffles and gourmet pork products capped a memorable stay followed by a nice walk to visit the donkeys and chickens on the gounds.
