Fodor's Review

It's been 300 years since the Earl of Cork and Burlington built this handsome country house, and it still retains its imposing aura of courtly elegance, thanks to owners Claire and Paul Deevy. They've added welcoming touches like log fires, traditional country-house decor, and a fabulous restaurant. Each of the large rooms boasts glorious views out over the extensive grounds, and all include elegant period furniture that lets you live like a country gent or lady for a

night. The place is a touch "tattered aristocracy" around the edges, but that's part of the charm, and the staff is famed for its attentive yet relaxed manner. The pièce de résistance here is the restaurant (reservations essential), where Paul and his small staff wow critics and diners alike. Famous for his warm asparagus wrapped in smoked salmon, he prides himself on using local game in season and fish from Helvic, Dunmore, and Ardmore. Triumphs include a fillet of Waterford lamb with sun-dried tomatoes and rosemary jus.
