If you're tired of the sterile, corporate, almost fabricated look of accommodations and you want to experience the 'real Ireland' then you must stay at Sherwood Park House. The owners are fantastic and sincere, the landscape is beautiful, the breakfast was excellent and the home gorgeous, out of the 17th century. My wife and I loved it and wanted to... More

Sherwood Park House is the antithesis of those brassy, shiny, pretentious chain hotels, with staff trained to mouth corporate-speak rather than deal with you as human being. Nothing ersatz about this beautiful elegant perfectly-proportioned house and the hosts Maureen and Paddy are the real deal, the genuine article. We stayed in April and I am ashamed of myself for taking... More
