Hunter's Hotel Review

On 2 acres of flower gardens (the Knot Garden is an award winner) beside the Vartry River, the beautiful white Hunter's Hotel is the oldest coaching inn in Ireland. It has been owned and operated by the same family since 1820, and the décor reveals as much—nothing inside, from the taxidermied animals on the walls to the tiny, cozy bar, feels like it's there for show, but instead seems to have been placed in that spot by time itself. The guest rooms are simple, bright, and neat, with lovely period furnishings. Ask for one overlooking the gorgeous gardens so the sound of the river can lull you to sleep. The restaurant prepares good, hearty food, with local game a regular feature.
