Fodor's Review

Just north of Dundalk, this Victorian mansion with a slightly severe but elegant modern addition sits on 130 acres on the scenic Cooley Peninsula. The place has a reputation for comfort and good cuisine. Reproduction period pieces fill the extra-large guest rooms, which overlook either the spacious gardens or the old stable yard. The restaurant serves a set menu of Irish and French cuisine; it specializes in lobster and other fresh seafood in season. Vegetarian plates are also available. The golf course and leisure club have a great reputation.
