Now that's what I call a country house hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 10, 2009

Upmarket, yet friendly and welcoming. Now that is a difficult feat to pull off, but I can honestly say that this is just about the best hotel I have encountered in Ireland.

Located on the road from Ballina to Foxford, the country house has been re-furbished and restored with some guile. I especially liked the fact that the basic floorplan of the house was retained and that more modern additions were well hidden, discreet and not overbearing. All to often the title 'country house' is no more than marketing speak. You pull up at a nice country pile, but your actual bedroom is miles away down some corridor that is just as faceless and uninteresting as any global branded chain. Thankfully that particular pitfall has been avoided here.

Inside the public rooms are clearly of the 'country house' look, but there appears to be no fakery here. Modern replacements are just that and no more. I especially liked the tiled entrance hall with the wooden starircase at the rear leading to the various suited rooms. The honeymoon suite was especially impressive, as it should be. Indeed it was for the wedding of my sister in law that we stayed here.

Unique Quality: I was impressed by the flexibility of the staff who made every effort to make the whole wedding a great success. It helps that the hotel is small enouth that the whole place can the rented out en-masse for such an event. I though that the outdoor b-b-q that they put on in the afternoon following the wedding was especially well done. They were also more than happy to put up with the happy couples 'sports day'. Tug of war, welly wanging and three legged races may not be common at wedding, but then again you probably havn't met my family !
