Good Hotel Guide Review

Fall for the views, over Kenmare Bay and the Sheen waterfalls, at this much refurbished 17th-century fishing lodge (Relais & Châteaux) across the suspension bridge from the heritage town. Part of the Palladian Hotels group, it is a luxury set-up with spacious, modern bedrooms, a collection of charming thatched cottages and villas, a fine restaurant and a serene, stylish spa. Seamus Crotty is the manager. Choose among tastefully decorated bedrooms varying in size; some have enough space, including a lounge area, to accommodate a family. Take tea and light snacks in the sun lounge; sip from an array of Irish whiskeys in the cocktail bar. In the elegant, well-regarded restaurant, chef Tony Schwarz serves modern Irish dishes, including home-smoked salmon. Children are ‘happily catered for’. There’s much activity outdoors as well: salmon fishing, horse riding, kayaking, falconry, clay pigeon shooting – and gentle strolls through woodland or by the riverside. 2 lounges, drawing room, library, study, cocktail bar, restaurant; terrace (alfresco dining). Private dining room. Free Wi-Fi, in-room TV (Sky). Live piano/traditional Irish folk background music. Wedding, function facilities. Spa (sauna, steam room, beauty/holistic therapies), indoor heated pool. Wine cellar (tours by arrangement). 300-acre grounds (woodlands, 19th-century plantation, private stretch of river). Bicycles available to borrow. Children (cots) and dogs (heated stables, £25) welcomed. 68 rooms (1 suitable for disabled; 13 suites), plus 5 villas available for self catering. Per room B&B from €180, D,B&B from €290. Closed Jan (except New Year).
