Having been here 19 years ago I was a bit apprehensive returning but it lived up to every memory and more. The room was spacious and comfortable and the food at dinner was fabulous. There were 6 of us and everyone loved it. The welcome and hospitality of the hosts was memorable and they did everything to make our trip...

This is a beautiful place! We stayed for one night and had an evening meal. The food was really delicious with fresh, local ingredients. The rooms are individually and uniquely decorated, the common areas are very beautiful and there is a wonderful, comfortable ambience throughout the house. The staff are friendly and relaxed: this is not a "stuffy" place. Make...

Once we told people we were heading here to use up a present of a voucher , we were regaled with tales of how lovely it was and how amazing the food was, so we were really looking forward to our overnight stay. Our first impressions were very favourable - we were greeted very warmly, shown to our room upstairs...

The property is in a beautiful setting. Quiet and serene. The rooms are so pretty. Every area of this charming hotel is wonderful. Sitting by the fireplace or in library is very enjoyable and relaxing while you enjoy afternoon tea or a glass of wine before dinner. Both dining rooms with their white table clothes and cozy atmosphere add to...

Had stayed here with two friends years ago and had loved the whole experience. Had an opportunity to take a mini break with my husband recently and Mustard Seed was the first place that came to mind. The minute you drive through the gates, enter the beautifully designed house and familarize yourself with the tastefully furnished bedroom, you find yourself...

Had a fabulous meal at the Mustard Seed recently. John front of house is so professional as was all of the staff. The attention to detail is remarkable. I loved the open fire and the cozy feel all through the evening. Definitely a return visit.

We had the pleasure of spending the weekend in Mustard Seed Echo Lodge with very good friends of ours. From the moment we walked in the door, we were given a very warm welcome. We quickly settled ourselves down on comfy couches beside the open fire and and were offered complimentary tea/ coffee with home cooked biscuits and cake. It...

This hidden gem offers fine dining in a house/manor type setting. It's reputation precedes it and the quality of food service and hospitality is an experience worthy of the price! With just 10 rooms it's an intimate treat perfect for a special night away or as a quiet base to explore the surrounding area of Adare, Newcastle West or further...

Visited this restaurant recently for dinner. The menu is a 4 course set menu costing €60 plus tea/coffee. Staff are extremely friendly and the food is very high quality. The restaurant closes for 3 weeks in January. It also has bedrooms and is a member of the Blue Book
