Good Hotel Guide Review
It’s a glorious drive through rolling countryside to Anne and Warwick O’Hara’s manor house, where guests are welcomed with tea and ‘a delicious variety’ of home-made cakes. Original furniture, china and the Victorian drawing-room wallpaper attest to long family occupation. The house we see is the remodelling of an earlier one, in 1869, for Warwick’s grandparents, by church architect WH Byrne. The dual-aspect drawing room has ‘photos on the grand piano, pictures, attractive flower arrangements’. Bedrooms are spacious and elegant, with comfy seating, views of gardens and parkland. Dinner is no longer served bu there are good local restaurants nearby. In the morning Warwick prepares and serves breakfast, with home-made jam and stewed fruit on the buffet, cooked dishes ordered the night before. Afterwards, guests can wander the grounds, visit donkeys Holly and Noddy or fly-fish in nearby loughs.
