“Rathellen House is a delightful, comfortable, and elegant place to stay while visiting Ireland.”
Reviewed 27 June 2010 for a stay in June 2010

Eamonn and Stella Long warmly hosted us in their beautiful Rathellen House for one week while we stayed and toured Southeast Ireland. They made us feel as though the elegant and comfortable house was our home for the week. They provided us with tips and ideas of sites to see and were available to kindly answer our questions. They also gave us the freedom and privacy to enjoy ourselves in the retreat-like atmosphere. As a family, we created meals in the amazing kitchen and enjoyed our meals and family time in the elegant dining area. The lovely sitting room was a perfect place for us to map out our adventures and revisit our day's happenings. It was an extra bonus to have wifi access to connect with loved ones at home, as well. The library was also a perfect respite for some quiet time and reading. The children were able to play games in the house and truly enjoyed frolicking around the grounds. At the end of each day, our comfortable and serene bedrooms welcomed us, rejuvenating us for the new day.

Rathellen House is a perfect place to stay while visiting Ireland. We will cherish the memories that we created in Ireland and are so thankful to Stella and Eamonn for helping to make our vacation so delightful.
Fondly,
Sheila, Peter, and Petey Grace

“Elegance and style in the country setting”
Reviewed 3 June 2010 for a stay in June 2010

During our recent fourth trip to Ireland we stayed at Rathellen House for three nights. There were six of us (3 couples) traveling together. The House is set in a beautiful country setting with views to the Galtee Mountains that are stunning. Stella is a wonderful host and the house itself boasts extremely comfortable en-suite rooms. In addition, there is a large sitting room and smaller library perfect for afternoon tea, reading or meeting new friends. Our stay at Rathellen was at the end of our trip and the big, comfortable beds were especially welcome. There is much to see in this part of Ireland and for hill walkers (such as us) Rathellen is perfectly situated in an area of many lovely signposted walks of all levels. Since we were a larger group, we chose to have Stella and her husband prepare dinner on two nights. Dinner (like breakfast) was served in a formal dining room with impeccable service. We would highly recommend Rathellen House to those that desire a touch of luxury in this beautiful area.

“Sheer luxury with outstanding hospitality”
Reviewed 1 June 2010 for a stay in April 2008

We have stayed in Rathellen house a number of times. My family are originally from Bansha and so it is an ideal place for us to base ourselves when visiting. From the moment we drive in the gate and are greeted by the friendly family dog we are made to feel so welcome. On one occasion we had my elderly grandmother with us who uses a zimmerframe as her mobility is poor, Stella gave her the best room in the house where she had her first jacuzzi bath in her 80's!
We would highly recommend Rathellen house for a romantic getaway or a weekend with family and friends. 10/10 for service, food, hospitality and decor! We'll be seeing Stella again soon!

Reviewed 20 April 2010 for a stay in April 2010

Definitely one of the nicest BnB's I've stayed in, could have been a hotel it was so luxurious. The owner was friendly and accommodating and even had glasses of ice water for us coming in from a late night. Top marks!!!

“Exceptional”
Reviewed 15 October 2009 for a stay in July 2009

The Rathellen House is truely a home away from home and then some! The hosts, Stella and Eamonn were so gracious. They greeted us with homemade treats, coffee and tea upon our arrival. We found the rooms charming and very comfortable, you will sleep well during your stay. The kitchen was absolutely awesome! The manor was a little hard to find at first but once you get settled in, you are in the perfet location for day trips in the area. We highly recommend the Rathellen House!
