Fodor's Review

Step into this hotel's spacious, light-filled atrium with its touches of marble, cherrywood, and mahogany and you quickly realize you have entered another world. Part of the reason are the guest rooms—all elegantly appointed with classic furniture and artwork—which look out over an 18-hole course and across to the Slieve Bloom Mountains. There are modern-Irish and Italian restaurants, or opt for the blow-out Champagne Afternoon Tea (€60 for two with a glass of Bollinger). A tunnel links the hotel to the spa, where the tyranny of endless choices stretches to more than 70 treatments. The parkland championship course (home to a golf school) was codesigned by Seve Ballesteros and features challenging doglegs, as well as lakes (stocked with brown trout).
