Good Hotel Guide Review
Experience traditional country house hospitality at Kieran Thompson’s grand Georgian mansion overlooking the estuary and quay. Catherine Flynn is the long-serving manager. Intricate mouldings, oil paintings and bronzes fill the traditionally decorated public rooms; the high-ceilinged drawing rooms have stuffed bookcases, ‘lived-in’ sofas and an open fire. In sight of the gardens and river, chef John Gavin’s French-influenced five-course menus include produce from the fishery, garden and farm, home-smoked salmon and ‘delicious’ home-baked bread. Fly fishers, pack your waders: the house’s extensive fishing rights allow lines to be cast along both banks of the Newport river and beside Lough Beltra for spring salmon, grilse and sea trout. Drawing room, sitting room, bar, dining room, restaurant. Games rooms. Free Wi-Fi (in public areas and some bedrooms), in-room TV. No background music. 15-acre grounds, walled garden. Private fishery. Children (cots, high chairs) and dogs (in courtyard bedrooms) welcomed. 7 miles N of Westport. 14 bedrooms (4 in courtyard; 2 on ground floor). Per person B&B €110–€145, D,B&B €175–€210. Closed Nov–mid-Mar.
