Architectural Splendor and Timeless Elegance

The hotel’s design features the popular curved gables of late 18th and early 19th-century Irish country houses, a testament to its time as the estate of the Boyle family. After surviving the tumult of Ireland's War of Independence, the building was lovingly restored, retaining its historical charm while embracing the needs of modern guests.
