Ballyfin, Co Laois
Nestled in over 600 acres, this lavish Regency mansion has been painstakingly restored, yet all modern conveniences have been incorporated.
With only 20 bedrooms, guests at Ballyfin have the feeling of visiting a friend’s home; relaxation comes naturally when ensconced in any one of the sumptuously decorated salons, library or the stunning Turner designed conservatory.
Hospitality is key here, a team of butlers are at hand ensuring guests are well cared for at all times. Cuisine is an important element of the Ballyfin experience, with daily created menus on offer, together with suggested wine pairings many featuring the Bordeaux estates of the Irish “Wine Geese” who fled following the Battle of Kinsale.
Spa treatments are available, as are a number of country pursuits such as falconry, archery, fishing and clay shooting.
