"Wonderful welcome in a magical location"
Deep in Ireland's Hidden Heart is this lovely residence, with all the key qualities of this peaceful part of Ireland: tranquillity, lakeland, ancient trees. Mornington is a classic example of the Irish Big House and its welcoming hosts are a credit to the tradition of hospitality.
Meals are around a big oak table in the dining room, so you soon get to know your fellow guests. After a recent visit to the Wild Atlantic Way (on the way to becoming a vctim of its own success, alas), I conclude that the discerning vistor to Ireland heads to places like this - and our fellow guests were a good proof of this.
Neighbouring attractions include the magical lake of Derravarragh and the Tullynally estate, home to Thomas Pakenham's collection of remarkable trees.
