My wife and I spent two nights here during Easter 2007 and I can safely say, it's by far the best culinary experience I've ever had. The 8 course taster menu (different on both nights) is simply outstanding, each course is so good it leaves you in excited anticipation of what's coming next.
Christine is the perfect hostess, her attention to detail is second to none and it shows throughout the whole experience. This is not a hotel, nor a country house, it's a piece of heaven that Christine and Dermot have created here on earth (maybe the former occupants (i.e. the nuns) used their influence in pulling this off).
I don't need to go into the cleanliness, friendliness and homely ambiance of the Old Convent. It's all part and parcel of making this place a "must do" for anyone who likes the finer things in life and is looking for something a little different. My wife has made a vocation of visiting country houses and she says this beats everything that's gone before. We've booked a return visit for New Year.
