Fodor's Expert Review Keadeen Hotel
Off Ballymany, Newbridge, Co. Kildare, Ireland
The luxurious spa and health center are the big attractions at this family-owned hotel on 10 acres of flower-filled gardens. Light is a constant theme in the spacious bedrooms, all of which have pastel-color accents and big windows overlooking the lawns below. Giant wall murals in the Derby Room restaurant are dedicated to the true heroes of Kildare, those famous racehorses. Don't miss the chance to take a dip in the ancient-Roman-style pool—it's a real miniature sea of tranquility.
