This hotel was the highlight of our irland trip. We especially loved the beautiful victorian mansion and the surroundings with the huge garden and lake view. We had a superior room in the garden house and were very happy with the modern interior, bright and airy, and the lovely outdoor patio. Dinner was served in 2 small and cozy dining...

Our stay at Ard na Sidhe was perfect from the moment we arrived. It even continued when we were back home once more when a letter arrived from the manager thanking us for our stay and sending us a recipe from their chef. Our room in the main house was beautiful with views of the lake and gardens and a...

The perfect location for exploring the Dingle Peninsula and the Ring of Kerry. A quiet beautifully furnished hotel, with very friendly staff and excellent service. The totally relaxing atmosphere is helped by having no television in the rooms, therefore no noisy guests next door, just perfect peace and the best views of Caragh Lake, the mountains and the stunning gardens....

ok, we were here in september when the staff is tired - but then again it calls itself a 4 star country house - which it is only partially true. price level is (very) high compared to luxury hotels of the same calibre, but they have a serious service problem. Kind reception, good room service (though no fresh shampoo etc),...

Beautiful small hotel with the service and atmosphere of a 5 star luxury hotel minus the pool and spa. We were warmly and graciously welcomed upon our arrival.The rooms were impeccable and spotless, great showers, and the beds were luxurious. Dinner and breakfast were equally as quality. When we arrived in the late afternoon, the chef was just coming in...

Beautiful little place with amazing grounds. The rooms and the grounds were immaculate. Food in the restaurant was amazing. Both the food and the drink were very reasonably priced, and also very good. The staff was excellent, everyone there was very helpful and friendly. The place was beautiful and well-maintained, but there were a few things that I do want...

Highly recommend this hotel. Little gem in the middle of nowhere. Staff are super and rooms are gorgeous. Would I come back? Without a doubt. Charming place. Great walks nearby. I wouldn't agree with the few negative comments posted. I just love this place

Built in an Arts and Craft style this beautiful small country house is a wonderful tranquil retreat, the modern wing where we were allocated is a minute walk through the garden to the main hotel but this in itself was a delight. The main rooms are all reminiscent of the period when built, with style and comfort and the modern...
