If you like 'things' then Sion Hill is for you. It is steeped in history and much of it is on display as collectors pieces literally all over the house on virtually every space - and you are free to look at it all. We were fascinated.
George and Annette are really friendly from the moment they greet you to all the tourist advice they can tell you.
The gardens are a delight and we spent time on both of our days there exploring them and relaxing amongst the scent of flowers and the sound of fountains.
Although the house is well up the hill from the main road into Waterford, we did notice the traffic, mainly because we never hear any at home. And there is an early waking cockerel - but we were well rested in the comfortable bed and it never bothered us.
Breakfast has a good choice and there id plenty of it. We enjoyed sitting at the large communal dining table but could have had an individual one if we had wanted.
Most people choose to drive the 1 mile into town in the evening, but we walked in in about 20m so that we could both have a drink. The drive is a bit steep on the way back but is well lit.
Overall a very pleasant and memorable stay.
