Our extended family went to Roundwood House to celebrate my mother's 80th birthday (shhh, she doesn't want anyone to know!) We had been here 10 years ago to celebrate her 70th birthday. It was PERFECT! Roundwood House is that perfect combination of feeling so homely but yet with service and great food and wine! We started our stay with G&Ts around the roaring fire. Hannah and Paddy are incredibly welcoming and Paddy did the perfect rendition of Happy Birthday on his acoustic guitar as Mum's birthday cake came out after a fab meal. Our bedrooms were wonderfully comfortable and we enjoyed spending some time wandering around the woods accompanied by the house's loyal golden labrador. Is Roundwood for everyone? Possibly not - for those who want a synthetic, everything is perfect with immaculate furnishings and paintwork they will be disappointed. For those more discerning who love the atmosphere of an old historical Irish home with all the history, genuine Irish hospitality, quirkiness and welcome that Roundwood House offers in authentic pure abundance this will definitely hit the spot perfectly!
