Salville House Review

Gordon and Jane Parker have created a hilltop haven where food and bohemian relaxation are the order of the day, thanks to Gordon's way with inspired contemporary cuisine, the spacious guest rooms with plenty of books on the shelves, and the great view of the River Slaney. Guests dine around a mahogany table and are invited to bring their own wine. In summer, a lawn-tennis court in front of the Victorian house adds to its charm. As for history, local legend has it that this erstwhile farmhouse was once the home of a couple of "disreputable" ladies who danced at the Folies Bergère in Paris. Happily, things are much more respectable nowadays. To get here, look for the signpost, 2 km (1 mile) out of Enniscorthy.
