If you want to experience the life of a crowned head a couple of centuries ago, look no further.
Ballyfin is one of those extremely rare, decadent, extraordinary places !
615 acres walled in à différent time capsule. 90 personal members to attend to 40 guests when the « hôtel « is fully committed.
The rooms are all different, the grounds are incredible with a lake, a grotto, walled gardens a medieval tower, it’s own church... Even under the rain ( this is Ireland :) the place is magical !
I’m hesitant to actually write a review, as I hope to go back very soon, and I’m afraid this place is about to be « discovered « .
The service can be slow , but it is also a way to let you forget about time! Where’s the rush when you are already in heaven !
I wish I could personally thank the owner for restoring and creating such a gem! We need more places like Ballyfin in the world :)
