Fodor's Review

This beautifully restored Victorian-Italianate mansion, built in the 1870s by seafaring Captain Robert Halpin, is now decorated with mementos of his nautical exploits, including paintings and ship models. Elsewhere, Victorian antiques fill the house. Some bedrooms have four-poster beds, sitting areas, and views of the Wicklow landscape, the Irish Sea, or the lovely gardens on the 7-acre grounds. In the dining room, expect to be served French-influenced Irish cuisine, with fresh vegetables from the garden. Brown and fruit breads are baked daily.
