Award winning restaurant. Outdoor swimming pool, small golf course, tennis court, woodland walks, children's play area. Small conference facilities.

The Main House has charming older rooms, smaller rooms on the south side overlook the lawn, others on the top floor are tucked into the roof. The Downstairs Rooms The new spacious rooms on the north side have views over the river and bird life at the back of the house. They also have quick and easy access to the swimming pool and tennis court in the Summer.

The Courtyard: The courtyard rooms are beside the main house in an independent building. The ground floor rooms have very easy wheel chair access and if necessary cars can be brought to the bedroom door. Upstairs the spacious Geranium room has an alcove for a child's bed or desk if you are looking for a quiet spot to work.
Two small "cottagey" rooms and two larger rooms make up the top floor.

Around the house there are lovely walks in our woodland area and bird sanctuary, a small golf course, tennis court, croquet lawn, swimming pool for summer use, and a sand pit and slide for children.

The restaurant has gradually developed since it was opened in 1964 serving the cuisine of the Irish country house. It is based on the produce of our farm and gardens, and on traditional and modern recipies with influence from other countries.
