Good Hotel Guide Review
The vista stretches over open pastures from Paddy and Hannah Flynn’s Georgian mansion, standing in extensive grounds below the Slieve Bloom mountains. A family-run, family-style place, the house has an informal atmosphere that allows for a ‘warts-and-all Irish experience’, say Guide inspectors in 2017. ‘Lovely people’, the hosts lay out hot drinks and home-baked biscuits when guests arrive. Traditionally furnished bedrooms (‘in need of a little TLC’) have a ‘comfortable bed’ and gracious views over the grounds. In the evening, Paddy Flynn cooks an ‘excellent dinner’ of local meat and produce in season – perhaps ‘perfectly pink’ strip loin of beef. (Served in the small dining room, the no-choice menu takes guests’ dislikes and dietary restrictions into account.) At breakfast: fresh juices and a ‘first-rate’ hot dish. Glorious nature is all around; a fascinating ‘library of civilisation’ appeals on an indoor day. 3 miles N of village.
