Fodor's Review

This grand house is a palace in every sense: red-pine paneling, barley-sugar staircases, Corinthian columns, and a surfeit of cosseting antiques all create an air of Georgian volupté, while outside the majestic manse is gorgeously offset by parkland with fountains and centuries-old trees. Guest rooms are old-school luxurious; try to snag one that looks out towards the Rock of Cashel. The coach house has been converted into 10 smaller rooms. The Bishop's Buttery restaurant relies on game in season, local lamb and beef, and fresh fish creatively prepared, and also serves simple, light meals all day; the linguini with seared prawns and crayfish is irresistible. Don't miss the lovely gardens at the rear of the house, where you can see the descendants of the original hop plants used by Richard Guinis to brew the first "Wine of Ireland." Guinis went on, with his son, Arthur, to found the Guinness Brewery in Dublin. There's a beautiful self-catering cottage on site.
