“Nice relaxing break”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

My husband and I stayed at Farnham Estate for e very enjoyable one-night midweek break.
We really liked how the old house was extended into a modern hotel, linking the two buildings by a spacious and bright lobby.
The hotel part is your standard 4* Irish hotel - the room has all the standard facilities, quite comfortable and spacious but nothing unexpectedly good. The toiletries are very basic so if you like good shampoo and conditioner bring your own, and don't forget to pack your moisturiser as you won't find it there!
The room was very very hot, so much that we had to sleep with the window and the curtains wide open, but this was the only negative point, together with a certain lack of cleanliness probably due to too many wedding parties staying over!
The spa is really good, and we didn't expect to be able to swim in an outdoor pool in Co. Cavan!
We had lunch and dinner in the bar, nothing special but the food was decent and good value.
We were a bit surprised that the cellar bar, the concept of which is all around wine, only had a tiny wine list. We were able to order from the restaurant wine list though, so be sure to ask.
In conclusion, it's a good option for a short break, not the best I've had in Ireland, but still very pleasant.

Our second stay in 7 months at this lovely hotel, and already looking forward to a return visit. From the moment you step out of your car you will feel welcomed and valued as a guest. The staff are excellent - no request too much trouble and they will go out of their way to ensure you have everything you require. The food in the restaurant, the bar and breakfast is fantastic too. The piece de resistance is however, the spa. With rest, relaxation and tranquility at its core, it is one of the best I have ever experienced. Thank you again Farnham for such a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: All standard rooms are excellent - those on the upper floors have a view of the infinity pool and ro...

I have stayed at the Farnham Estate on 4 occasions now. It is quite a 'couply' place but as a single girl that has never put me off or made it any less enjoyable.
Most of the staff are so professional and friendly and a great touch is that a lot of them remembered me and addressed me by my first name. Makes you feel very welcome.
The food has always been top class...i especially recommend the burger off the bar menu!
The accommodation, surroundings and Spa make it one of the best hotels for complete luxury and relaxation.

I attended a family wedding there in May and it was one of the best weddings ever! I was very involved of the planning and although at first they were a bit reluctant, the management really embraced the style ideas and changes that we wanted to make to the normal wedding set up.
Despite the fact that the Farnham Estate feels very exclusive and is a top class venue, it is warm and not in any way stuffy.
They were not able to accommodate the large number of wedding guests staying the next day (150) for a gathering, due to another wedding being booked, so we booked a private function in The Shantully Inn which is only 8 minutes away. Its is a local country bar with B&B and I have to say the standard of the food was up there with Farnham, although it was more home cooking than gourmet, which is what we wanted!
The staff were amazing and so professional. The owner Marie, made us feel really welcomed and the few people that stayed there were very impressed with the hospitality. I would recommend the Shantully Inn to any bride and groom for a next day venue for dinner and dancing!

Room Tip: all rooms are great. If you can afford to splash out the suites are all unique and so comfy

I was blown away at how lovely this hotel was. I stayed there for a wedding and I intend to go back for a longer stay. The food was amazing and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel was very quiet even on a busy weekend so it would be perfect for a quite get away.

My husband and I went to celebrate our anniversary, we have been a few times before. The hotel is excellently kept with an outstanding pool and spa area. The staff are fabulous, probably the nicest I've met in Ireland. I could not recommend this hotel strongly enough! We were treated like royalty the whole time we were there and made our anniversary very special. We will definitely be back again! Outstanding place!

Just returned from an overnight stay here,and can't recommend it enough. It was our first time and we definitely won't be our last. Very friendly and welcoming staff, lovely spacious room with an outside patio area and the spa was brilliant. We also has treatments in the spa which were great and very relaxing. Dinner was lovely with lots of choice. Can't fault anything at all :)

Loved every minute of this overnight stay. We booked via booking.com and got a great last minute price. The staff are so professional yet friendly and the food was delicious. Service was very good. I don't know why this hotel is not 5 star, have stayed in some 5stars of less standard. The pool is lovely, the outdoor part was fun and unusual in our climate but heated pool was great. Loved the spa, highly recommend booking treatment/s. The gym was well equipped. The grounds were beautiful, the building itself has so much history - love the fact you can walk around the original estate. Looking forward to our next trip here.
