Fodor's Review

One of Ireland's premier country-house hotels, this 1897 stone château has spectacular views of the Caha Mountains and its 11-acre parkland, where every tree seems manicured, features magnificent terraced lawns sweeping down to the bay. A welcoming fire is always burning in the lobby, and the lounge crammed with genuine antiques still manages to be charmingly family-friendly. Nonguests can sample the ambience by taking Victorian afternoon tea (€27.50)—a great idea for a rainy day. Rooms are tastefully furnished with Victorian antiques, and suites have four-poster beds. You can watch classic movies nightly in the 12-seat theater, enjoy dinner—perhaps sample the tasting menu—in the elegant dining room, and indulge in meditation walks and other goodies offered by the deluxe spa.
