Good Hotel Guide Review
Come and be spoiled at the O’Flynns’ large country house on the Wicklow/Kildare border, where the staff ‘make you feel so welcome’. The house, converted from Queen Anne stables in 1798, stands in sweeping parkland with plenty of diversion (tennis in the walled garden, croquet on the front lawn, giant outdoor Jenga, bicycles to borrow, an 18-hole golf course). Inside, relax in a ‘low-key’ atmosphere, where turf and log fires burn in the traditionally furnished drawing rooms. The bedrooms are ‘fabulous’, with interesting prints and a seating area; look out for playful accents – dog-print wallpaper, a cheetah-emblazoned bedside lamp. Some spacious bedrooms in the main house have country views. At dinner, Abhishek Tiwari cooks modern Irish fare with international twists, using local produce and garden-fresh vegetables and herbs. Typical dishes: wild Wicklow pheasant and apricot terrine, plum purée chicory; grilled sea bass, bacon orzo-riso, pak choi, samphire. Some think breakfast’s ‘the best in the country’ – load your plate with home-made soda bread, local hams and cheeses, and home-smoked fish, and judge for yourself. Popular for weddings. More reports, please.
