Good Hotel Guide Review

‘It doesn’t seem to change,’ says a reader who first stayed some 30 years ago at this pink-washed Georgian country house ‘in a glorious setting’, with gardens bordering Ballinakill Bay. Many others return year after year. Built in 1820, it has been run as a hotel by the Foyle family for more than 50 years. The ‘very special’ ambience owes much to third-generation owner Mark Foyle’s ‘endless enthusiasm’ and ‘easy-going hospitality’. Turf fires burn in public rooms filled with antiques and family possessions. Bedrooms are in the original house and a newer wing, some with a sea view against a mountain backdrop. Each is unique: ‘Nothing is standard… the eclectic style is one of the attractions.’ One room might have a half-tester bed or four-poster, another a slipper bath and walk-in shower, another patio seating. In the dining room, chef Emmanuel Neu’s daily-changing menus harness local and home-grown produce for such dishes as Irish Hereford beef fillet, caramelised baby onions, pepper sauce; steamed turbot fillet, courgette spaghetti, saffron beurre blanc. Breakfast brings everything you’d expect, plus, perhaps, devilled kidneys, fresh mackerel. (EC, and others)
