This beautiful residence is in a very picturesque part of Kildare. The house itself seems steeped in history and the welcome second to none. Beautiful country living well worth the visit. If you want a getaway weekend then this is your spot.

Mary and Raymond made me feel very welcome, as if I was their personal guest. The room was well appointed and en suite. Breakfast had a wide choice of cooked food, cereals and toast, all taken around a large dining table. The house is a beautiful 18th Century farmhouse and is in a working farm.
