Large country house operating as an hotel with an old fashioned feel and smell about it. Lots of horse and dog awards, cups and rosettes on display but grounds are fine and the nearby equestrian centre will appeal to many. Upstairs rooms slightly musty, probably for lack of use more than anything else. Good for a family function with everyone...

Great place. Lovely estate and country house. Delicious food. Horses are all superbly trained and instructors are brilliant and patient. They really know what they're doing. If you want to gain confidence cross-country riding then this is the place to go.

Went on a 3 day horse riding holiday with friends. Days spent hacking out for 4 hours and evenings driving around the scenic coast. Good food at the quaint hotel and well tempered fit horses to hack out on.

As part of an already planned Ireland trip, I decided to add a three day stay at Bel Air to experience some cross country riding/jumping for the first time. These three days were so much more than I expected. First, the hotel is a charming old victorian house that is "well-loved" but with clean large rooms, good sized en-suite bathrooms,...

My mother and I stayed at Bel Air for the first part of our long anticipated trip to Ireland. We had planned to just stay for two days, but after the first day we knew we wanted to stay longer. The old family house is charming and clean, the service from every staff member was excellent, and the grounds are...

Bel Air was one of the highlights of our trip. The house was wonderful - old, atmospheric, and charming. The old stone stable was a horse-lover's dream. The people running the house and stable were friendly, helpful, and competent. One of us participated in a group trail ride. Lots of people from Dublin and nearby participated, riding either their own...

We spent 4 days at Bel Air and thought it was the best horse riding experience ever! Me and my friend do jumping at home, but had very limited (next to none) experience in cross-country jumping. The horses were absolutely amazing and with Noni's excellent instructions we felt extremely confident to jump all the fences :) We simply fell in...

It is not easy to turn an aging country estate into a comfortable hotel and still retain the old world feel of the original house and grounds, all while making the experience of staying there comfortable and leaving you wanting for nothing - yet that is exactly what they have accomplished here. The beautiful stone and stucco house, the rustic...

“Every room has a great view as far as I could tell. They are all different, so you might want to scope a few out if possible.”
