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)
