Good Hotel Guide Review
‘Great Atlantic views’ and beach walks await at Antoin O’Looney’s ‘wonderfully hospitable’ small hotel. Within large grounds with mature woodlands, the 18th-century house, built for Sir Augustine Fitzgerald, is ‘fabulously located’, between the coast road and Lahinch bay. Inside, exposed stone walls, antiques, a characterful drawing room with an honesty bar, open fire, handcrafted furnishings. Bedrooms have individual touches: a canopy bed, a turf-burning fire, a claw-foot bath. Produce from the hotel’s farm and kitchen garden supplies chef Matthew Strefford’s ‘excellent’ daily-changing menu, including Moy House shepherd’s pie, garden vegetables, served to ocean views in the candlelit orangery restaurant. Next morning, home-made bread and granola, along with eggs from the hotel farm’s chickens, set guests up for the day.
