My motto is "You can always go first class, you just can't stay as long!" we stayed at this luxurious property the second to the last night of our week long trip to Ireland. Included in the price of our stay was horse back riding which 4/6 of us enjoyed, fishing, tennis and the most exceptional pool we have ever had the pleasure of enjoying. The rooms were lush, beds comfy, robes to wear down to the pool. We enjoyed the fine dining experience which was outstanding as well as the amazing breakfast in the morning which is included in the price of your stay. We enjoyed every single minute from check in to check out. The service was 5 star. There were two baby foals we enjoyed petting and taking pictures of. The views from our room were suburb.We were shocked to hear it is closing for a year because other folks find it dated. What a shame. It really gave us a perspective or what people who might be accustomed to luxury find acceptable. In our eyes, it was beyond our wildest dreams. I will forever remember looking out on the Gap of Dunloe as we dined. I'd never need more than a night here, I never want to get used to that sort of treat!
