Fodor's Review

An exquisite Georgian home once owned by the Earl of Longford, Viewmount has been restored to its former charm; the bedrooms are full of character and have impressive period wallpapers and antique mahogany wardrobes and beds. Breakfast is served in a vaulted room cheerily painted in Wedgwood blue. The 4 acres of grounds that surround the house are a gardener's paradise with an old orchard, a formal garden, and a Japanese garden complete with full-size pagoda. VM Restaurant, in a converted stable block, serves flavor-filled delights such as duck-leg confit and wild Wicklow venison. For breakfast try the homemade muesli followed by whiskey-smoked bacon with herbs from the Viewmount gardens. At €55, the five-course dinner menu is a great value; even better is the three-course early-bird (6:30 to 7:30) dinner at €35.
