Heritage Golf & Spa Resort 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 classical furniture and artwork—which look out over an 18-hole course and across to the Slieve Bloom Mountains. The Arlington restaurant offers an Irish twist to cooking with such delights as grilled black sole on the bone with nutty butter. More informal options are found in the Sol Oriens Italian restaurant, or opt for the blow-out Pink Afternoon Tea (€55 for two with a glass of Taittinger rosé Champagne). 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).
