Charles Lindbergh stayed here in Room 6 while he advised on the nearby Shannon Airport's design and he might still cotton to this tranquil, antique-adorned landmark, established as a coach stop in 1792, even though it is now somewhat over-restored and generic. Paintings and prints of horseback riders decorate the pale-yellow walls of the cozy bar and lounges; the county hunt still meets here regularly, continuing a centuries-old tradition. The comfortable guest rooms are
tastefully furnished with antiques. The elegant Maigue restaurant specializes in modern Irish cuisine, or you can opt for informal dining in the bright, airy bar by the rose garden.
