Ballyfin South East Ireland (County Laois), Ireland

“An immaculately restored, opulently furnished, Regency country mansion situated at the foot of the Slieve Bloom mountains. Five star luxury throughout. Sumptuous rooms filled with original Irish art. The price tag is steep, but it is on a full board basis with little extras like laundry included too”

“This hotel has not yet been inspected and reviewed by the Hotel Guru but has been recommended by other guides that we respect.”
