Good Hotel Guide Review
A tree’s length from the medieval town, the Carroll family’s listed Georgian house sits within castellated walled gardens, with views of the mountains that surround. It is run by Paul Carroll; his mother, Joyce, tends the garden and adorns the rooms with freshly cut flowers. The house is filled with family photographs and heirlooms, squashy sofas, antique French beds and claw-footed baths. Log-burners warm the drawing room and ‘elegant’ dining room, where modern Irish menus based on produce from lough and countryside might include scallops, salmon or braised shoulder of wild Wicklow venison. Traditionally decorated bedrooms have a modern bathroom; home-made biscuits to go with garden or mountain views.
