We stayed in room 5 aka 'The Loft'. This is perfect for a special occasion. Huge comfortable bedroom with seating area, huge bathroom with large shower and separate roll top bath beside the window. This room can accommodate three people. (A separate single bed is located in the cutest mezzanine accessed by stairs. On arrival you are invited to have...

I would rate our stay here as a 5 out of 5 only for some minor nit picky drawbacks of mine. The food was outstanding - some of the finest I have ever had. It was flavoursome and plentiful - 10 out of 10 for that. The service, cleanliness, ambiance and comfort was 10 out of 10. The bedroom was...

Truly wonderful food experience in the lovely surrounds of the old convent. Staff were extremely nice and made for a wonderful evening with girlfriend and family. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a night of indulgence in fantastic tasting food.

Having read about The Old Convent in an article about foodie breaks I knew it was somewhere we would enjoy. We decided to spend our wedding anniversary here as a treat and from the moment we arrived it was a chilled out experience. The property is beautifully preserved and decorated. We enjoyed tea in the drawing room during the day...

We go here whenever we need to escape the hustle and bustle of life. Peace and relaxation abound and Dermot Gannon's food is excellent. Christine runs a wonderful house and there is walking on the doorstep, with plenty of visitor attractions

First visit to the Old Convent, beautiful house, warmly welcomed and an efficient check in and orientation. Rooms were beautifully decorated and very comfortable, we loved visiting their sitting room for tea and cupcakes in the afternoon and met with other guests. Upstairs a little 'Aladdins Cave' contained everything your might need for a relaxing stay, books, DVD's and players,...

We are still in the room and I just couldn't wait to write this review. The Old Convent is just outstanding. Great location, the best food and lovely rooms. The staff are so friendly. The 8 course tasting menu was delicious. Good fresh food. My worry was that it would be overly pretentious but it was far from that. Well...

We absolutely LOVED this place. From the minute we walked in the door we fell in love with the charm and feel of this once functional Convent. We were greeted with tea/coffee service (cupcakes too!) and given a tour of the spaces. Wonderful touches like a Kitchen for all the guest to use which had chilled water/tea/coffee & snacks. Our...

The Old Convent met all of our expectations, over and abundantly! The bed, the room, the huge tub. It was nothing short of spectacular! The owner and hostess, Christine, was kind, sweet, adorable and accommodating. Her husband, the chef, served an 8-course meal that was fit for a king....or a really nice nun! The grounds are beautiful too. If you...

My husband and I went here in October and I just booked again for next month. We stayed in the Loft last time, which was a lovely, spacious room with gorgeous views of the mountains. But if you've been to the "OC," it goes without saying that the 8 course tasting menu is by far the highlight of the experience...
