Splendid dining in November; window seats, looking out at McCarthy Mór's castle in the fading light. Great variety of game, fish and steaks. Our selections done to perfection. Attendance by Olivia and Anthony was well judged and discreet. A memorable evening.

The driveway leads you through a framed view until the lake opens up in front of you; to stunning and breathtaking effect. This is picture perfect. The light is constantly changing and so you are not in a static image but a constantly moving one. And then......... the deer arrive to the waters edge. They perform as if they know...

Setting: stunning location on the lake. Feels remote, but not far from town. Saw deer herd on the grounds more than once including from the breakfast room. Luckily saw a sunny dawn with mists rising off the lake. Atmosphere: old world charm with reasonably modern facilities. Little library with diverse books. Big day lounge with piano, lit fire and mounted...
