Ballyfin (County Laois)

A diamond on The Emerald Isle

Set in the heart of romantic and sensuous Ireland, this five-star country house reintroduces you to the simple life––a walk through her gardens, Thomas Moore’s carefully observed landscapes, vistas dripping with flowers and the call of history at her grottos and medieval watchtower. It is no wonder the hotel’s storied, nearly twohundred year history includes adventurers and reads like a James Joyce novel. Twenty rooms provide a private venue for guests or becomes the ultimate intimate locale for a special event. Natural and man-made features in the vast, secluded gardens, open only to residents, captivate the imagination with incredible beauty.
