Fodor's Expert Review Dunbrody Country House

Off L4052, Arthurstown, Co. Wexford, Ireland Fodor's Choice

One of Ireland's finest country houses, Dunbrody is a sprawling, two-story 1830s Georgian manor house with beautiful gardens, cooking classes with an Irish celeb chef, guest rooms that charm with a judiciously luxe combination of period antiques and fine reproductions, and restful views over the Barrow Estuary. A delightful three-bedroom lodge house is also for rent. No need to rush the next morn: the famous breakfasts are served until 11:30. There's even a small but luxurious spa area and a champagne seafood bar with alfresco dining and lighter fare as an alternative to the award-winning Harvest restaurant. A cozy pub on the grounds, the Local, lives up to its name, drawing a mix of locals and guests, and offers a beer garden and live music on weekends.
