an oasis of peace in the irish speaking region, which is a unique experience in an area of outstanding beauty. second stay here . as you drive up the remote driveway you enter a secluded world of a bygone era, with all the modern conviences. the hosts elaine and henry, are absolutely charming. no request is met with any hesitation or bother. excellent directions, insight, and suggestions for planning trips each day. they have been here a long time and know the area. did not eat dinner here but the irish breakfast was the best. the room was so comfortable in this georgian house, once part of a large estate associated with ashford castle. the large room was inviting with the most comfortable bed, sitting area and nice bathroom. i did not hear a sound both times i stayed here and got such a restful and refreshing rest every night. in the evening guests were in the sitting area/living room downstairs by a fireplace enjoying a drink with elaine and henry having a chat. the nearby village had nice little shops and pubs. this hotel, which actually is a combination of guesthouse, elegant county home, is furnished with tasteful furnishing; and is the perfect location for day trips to the wonderful multiple surroundings in the area. a most unique stay to savor and not to be missed !
i have stayed in many places in my trips to ireland over the years, and this is one of the best.
