Fodor's Review

This gray-stone Victorian manor surrounded by pretty gardens and 27 woodland acres makes an excellent base for exploring Blarney, Cork City, and even Killarney, 1½ hours away. The guest rooms in Olwen and Douglas Venn's impeccably run family home are individually decorated with antiques (Olwen has a passion for French inlaid furniture) and striking textiles. The Regal Suite has a four-poster bed swathed in fabric that matches the ruched drapes, and a sunken hot tub. Breakfast is served in the conservatory, which overlooks rolling lawns and majestic trees.
