For a romantic weekend break in Ireland, the idyllic Ard na Sidhe Country House Hotel is the perfect setting. Ard na Sidhe (which means “Hill of the Fairies” in Gaelic) is a country house hotel which sits in the foothills of Ireland‘s highest mountain range, the McGillycuddy Reeks and exudes romance from the moment you turn in the driveway. Pretty woodland walks bursting with blooms and huge ferns meander down to the water of Caragh Lake, where you can sit and soak up the stillness or hop into a rowing boat and make for the far shore, framed by mountains; could there be a more romantic setting?
Leaded windows frame romantic gardens and lake views, while a fire crackles at night in the hearth of the huge lounge. Elegant period furniture, oil paintings, rich chintzes and wrought-iron lanterns lend warmth and welcome to every romantic break. Bask in the wonderfully intimate setting of the stylish and comfortable dining room, with its candle glow and open fire and share a beautifully prepared meal with your loved one.
Whether you and your partner are on honeymoon or simply in the area for a short stay, our main house bedrooms are the perfect place to relax and unwind. You’ll be transported to another world of splendour with four poster beds and antique furnishings, polished hardwood floors and Edwardian style bathrooms. Rooms also feature crisp Irish linens and deep mattresses - sleeping in the most comfortable of beds, guests are lulled by the sounds of the peaceful lakeshore. Our charming bedrooms are without the interference of television or radio. Simply allow yourself to escape during your romantic break in Ireland at Ard na Sidhe Country House Hotel in the heart of Ireland’s South West – a little piece of heaven on earth!
