Good Hotel Guide Review

There’s a quiet charm to Beryl and James Kearney’s ‘extremely comfortable and well-appointed’ hotel, in a Georgian mansion on the outskirts of town. Find original features, period furniture, paintings and objets d’art throughout. The vaulted sitting room was once the kitchen (spot the old service bells); the library has an open fire, old books, new magazines. Past residents, the Barons Longford family among them, are remembered in the names of the elegant bedrooms. All have garden views; there are feathered duvets, fresh flowers, bottled water, handmade Irish toiletries; a fine suite has an open fireplace with a mantel clock and ornaments. The smart VM restaurant, in converted stables, is ‘rightly packed with locals – it’s clearly the place to go for a celebration’. Here, chef Gary O’Hanlon serves seasonally changing menus of ‘superb’ classic dishes with a modern twist, perhaps braised lamb shank, root vegetables espagnole, gremolata; pan-fried Tory Island hake, beetroot and mushroom ragout, roast pepper gel. At breakfast, sit down to freshly squeezed orange juice, pancakes with maple syrup, hot-smoked salmon, ‘the freshest eggs’. (M and RMD)

Guest comments

'Warm and friendly welcome from James. His relaxed Irish geniality and easy conversation immediately radiates a sense of confidence in an arriving guest. On the ground floor along a tiled corridor, is a series of modern rooms, each on two levels. As with the restaurant extension, the design is of quality and the decor exudes good judgement and taste. Restaurant service was prompt and polite from a team of young waitresses overseen by Beryl, friendly and clearly a dynamo. Fine food. Delicious breakfast. ' - RG - April, 2017
'Extremely comfortable, well-appointed, in lovely grounds, with Beryl an excellent, friendly and incredibly-hardworking host. The restaurant served superb food: each night we had the Early Bird menu, which was good value and large portions. Delicious amuse-bouches, creamy vegetable soup, a pork-cheek and salad starter and wonderfully-presented salmon and chicken main courses and always a separate dish of veggies, which included the best mashed potato ever! The restaurant was rightly packed with locals-it is clearly the place to go for a celebration. The freshest of eggs at breakfast, cooked by Beryl's husband. ' - Mary Milne-Day - July, 2014
'Our family had a wonderful few days at Viewmount for my son's wedding. The accommodation was very comfortable, the welcome warm, the breakfasts WERE wonderful and regarding the wedding ran smoothly. The wedding meal was superb. ' - Marion Rodgers - August, 2012
