Stayed 2 nights with 3 other couples and loved the atmosphere. We were there during the historic 2013 "heat wave" (temperatures around 80 degrees), with sunny, Southern California type weather. Since the hotel is not air conditioned -- which I can totally understand given typical Irish weather -- 3 of our 4 rooms were pretty hot, necessitating keeping the doors open to try to generate a breeze. The fourth room and bathroom (where my husband and I stayed) had 5 windows on three sides and we enjoyed lovely breezes at all times. Accommodations very comfortable. The house is quite wonderful if you like authentically old settings, which I generally do. Lovely antique furniture everywhere, a game room/library, 2 parlors, etc, etc. Some might not like it that there was only one (old style) TV with limited channels in the game room and there were no TVs in the bedrooms. Our group was in Ireland to play golf and we were surprised that there was no way to watch the British Open while we were on the property, but really, the atmosphere is such a throwback to 200+ years ago, as long as you can get into that you don't really mind. Enjoyed walking around the area, through the apple orchards, sheep and horse pastures, finding a pheasant house, a chicken coop, beehives, an amazing vegetable garden, etc, etc. It is mind boggling to think how much money it must take to keep things going. The owners are committed to making guests comfortable and happy and they succeeded with us. The restaurant is superb. We had planned to go elsewhere for one of our nights there, but the food was so outstanding the first night that we ate there again. Second night not quite as good, but lovely surroundings in the dining room. Not much to do around the nearby town of Mallow, but if you like rustic and rural, this is a great place.
