Reviewed yesterday NEW

Given the Georgian attractions of Dublin it is essential to savour that experience by residing in one of Ireland's great country homes. The attention to detail and modernity is complimented by attention to detail in the restoration of the historic structure producing an enthralling blend of old and new.

The hotel looks amazing and room was lovely. Restaurant staff was very good and food was beautiful. Bar staff were very slow. Room service wasn’t great. When I rang to ask to send butter for toast it never arrived. Overall a lovely place but very expensive.

A perfect location, convenient to Dublin yet in the most amazing country location. The grounds are stunning and there is a wonderful sense of arrival when coming up the 3km driveway and seeing the grand old house. Our welcome was lovely as was our room with views over the grounds. Wonderfully quiet giving a peaceful nights sleep. Dinner was excellent...

Fantastic rooms. Staff were exemplary! In particular we had a hostess Anne Donoghue who personified etiquette and attentiveness at all times and went beyond measure during dinner to make our night so much better! Loved Carton!

Excellent place to stay no matter what you are in to . Fab walks in the ground and the spa is excellent too,. The Linden restaurant was excellent and I would highly recommend it. The rooms lacked a little bit of finesse considering the rest of the place is top notch.

What a lovely treat, in a beautiful place with fabulous surroundings and very friendly staff. Food was excellent, and breakfast was the best I've seen.... such choice. We were upgraded to a room in the old house because it was my friend's birthday. We were both made to feel very special all weekend. Perfect escape.... I'll be back!

Had a lovely stay here for a weekend, beautiful surroundings, old house lovely. Bar and lounge area very comfortable, spa gorgeous. Only letdown was the dinner and breakfast. At dinner the food just wasn't up to scratch, very disappointed in the breakfast, everything is laid out on the buffet, it all looked and tasted tired, no ordering freshly cooked food....

Beautiful setting, grounds and building. Staff all pleasant and helpful. Breakfast great but dinner only average. Spa also quite average. Lobby beautiful in the evening but would rather sit in the bar but poor atmosphere and terrible, ancient TV. Unable to watch sport on it. Rooms very comfortable but also with ancient TV.
