My wife & I stayed for 5 days at Dollardstown House in May 2014. This is a really lovely 3 storey Georgian house in its own grounds and beautifully furnished throughout in period style. We stayed in the spacious and extremely comfortable en suite Master Bedroom. Antoinette and Andrew are a very charming couple and really wonderful hosts for whom nothing was too much trouble. That began on arrival with excellent home made scones and jams served in the Drawing Room. In the Dining Room a lovely log fire was lit for breakfast and dinner. Breakfast was superb, plenty of choice of cereals together with fruit and yogurt to precede a brilliantly tasty "Full Irish" made up of top quality local ingredients including black pudding and white pudding. The home made breads of different varieties were the best we've tasted. Dinner is cooked by Lydia, a local chef, who e-mailed choices of menus to us at the time we booked the accommodation. We had 3 dinners there, each of 3 courses, and all were excellent. We were informed in advance of the BYO wine for dinner option which is really good and obviously a money saver. Overall staying in such a beautiful house and looked after by such fantastic hosts was a real treat and we were truly sorry when the time came to bid our farewells.
