So I stayed here on two consecutive weekends in August. On the first occasion I stayed in the main house and the room was clean, bed comfortable and the breakfast in the morning first class. Many a 5 star hotel would fail to deliver such a quality b'fast. Avril and Robyn made me extremely welcome and it felt very much like home. On the 2nd weekend I was given the option of the Cabin which is away from the main house. This was superb and I was happy to go down and collect my breakfast in the morning as I was keen to stay in the Cabin. It was clean, very warm and we had an amazing thunderstorm that night which really rattled trough the cabin which added to the excitement! Avril and Robyn are an incredible team. Good chats, great shortbread:) and fantastic hosts. If you are staying within 15k of Abbeyleix then there is frankly nowhere else of this standard. I checked out the Manor Hotel and the stench of boiled potatoes and cabbage was enough to make me walk straight out the door!!!! Local places to visit include Morrisseys (one of the oldest pubs in Ireland), Mac's for good food, Bramleys or Gallic Kitchen for coffee and lunch. One small gem just opened is Preston House. Danny is amazing and the food he puts out is frankly outstanding for this part of Ireland.
