Located in a spectacular valley, 30 km (18 miles) from Wicklow Town, there's a green/organic vibe to this serene country house with a get-away-from-it-all feel, but that doesn't mean it skimps on the luxury. It's a spa and culinary hot spot, as well as a stunning place to stay. Big, modern rooms have a touch of country-house style, and four-poster beds grace some of the suites. The design and setting ensures glorious views from almost every window. The grounds include an organic bakery, two restaurants, wine and crafts shops, a championship golf course, and even an equestrian center.
