Fodor's Review

For many, the Jack Nicklaus–designed golf course—which has hosted the Irish Open on three occasions—is the main draw, but this lush 1,500-acre estate beside the beautiful River Nore offers so much more. You'll also find a spa, an equestrian center, salmon and trout fishing, and excellent dining options at this elegant three-story Georgian mansion. The luxurious suites in the main house feature period decor, huge beds, and original fireplaces. There are additional guest rooms in a separate building close to the main house, as well as self-catering accommodations in luxe two-room lodges. The formal gardens and unspoiled woodlands beg exploration; add an array of dining options—from a casual bistro to the haute Lady Helen's Restaurant—and you may have trouble leaving the grounds.
