The magnificence of this bright-yellow, slate-roof stone manor is matched only by its setting on 300 secluded acres of lawns, gardens, and forest between Kenmare Bay and the falls of the River Sheen. The public salons are painted in warm, terracotta tones, and the mahogany-panel library has more than 1,000 books, mainly about Ireland. Guest rooms—all modern-traditional, in bright yellows and tranquil beiges—have bay or river views. Fishing, kayaking, and clay pigeon
(skeet) shooting are available on the grounds, and would-be falconers can take a hawk walk. The Cascade Restaurant is renowned for fine dining. There are also six luxurious cottages and villas on the grounds.
