Located a short drive from Kilkenny, and set in 170 acres of mature parkland and lakeland, this 17th-century house has been carefully restored and greatly expanded tobecome one of the country's largest convention centres, with a myriad of event spaces and public areas. The property is very popular for weddings, held in the public rooms of the main house, some of which retain many of the original architectural features. Bedrooms are predominantly in a separate block, all well-appointed and en suite; some are available in the original house. There are great dining options to be savoured here, from La Perla, the more traditional restaurant, to Yindees a very popular oriental option, and Tuppers bar for all-day dining. Guests have complimentary access to the health club and gym, with spa treatments and a thermal suite available at a supplement
