I stayed in Round Wood House last week with work coleagues. Paddy and Hannah the owners were very friendly and welcoming. The open fire in the sitting room was just fantastic. At the end of a long day standing at the ploughing championships it was great to relax by the fire. A large trunk of turf and fire wood was available to keep the fire topped up.
The food was excellent and it was no problem to them to prepare gluten free for me. The breakfast at 6 am was a great start to the day.Tables were laid with real china cups and plates.
The rooms were big and comfortable with shutters on the windows. The only little gripe I had was that the hair dryer flex is too short as the socket is far away from the mirror. This problem is common to many hotels in Ireland.
As I was not paying the bill I cannot comment on the value
It was my second time to stay at Round Wood House and I will be back again.
