My daughters wedding was hosted here and from the moment we arrived we were made welcome by Emma the receptionist who checked us in and showed us to our rooms.The rooms are out of this world I have stayed in some luxury hotel rooms but this is just something else [ my wife stayed in the library suite] spacious furnished with antiques the other bedrooms are way above your average 5 star standard room.We had the entire house to ourselves,other guests took over the courtyard apartments which are pure luxury.The wedding party dined in the main house in the formal dining room which is like a scene of Downton Abbey,we had a choice of starters,main courses, and desserts.all cooked perfection.Fran the manager seemed to do a hundred things yet he had a great eye for detail the silver service went smooth as clockwork and our wine glasses never went empty his staff were courteous and efficient [a special mention for Luca our barman in the small bar who was on the ball].The rest of the wedding party dined in the Brabazon restaurant with a choice of menu with every thing cooked to perfection[this is Not your usual wedding fare] but first class restaurant food cooked to order.The grounds are extensive and we had the place completely to ourselves as the gates are closed,boots and resident dogs can be supplied for those feeling energetic or you can relax in the outdoor hot tub.Thanks again to Fran and staff for a memorable stay .WE will definitely be back this is simply the best boutique hotel in Ireland North or South you five star rating does not do you justice.
