    Ballyfin Demesne
    Ballyfin
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 364 reviewsTripAdvisor (364)

    Ballyfin Demense is a world-renowned hotel, located within a castle-like structure in County Laois, Ireland. It was originally built in the 1820s for Sir Charles Coote and reopened in 2011 as a hotel after years of restoration. The estate's 614 acres are filled with wildlife, gardens, trails and picnic spots. Guests can participate in activities like tennis, boating, horseback riding, fishing, clay pigeon shooting, archery and falconry (some require an additional fee). On-site gardens, along with hens and bees, provide numerous ingredients for the restaurants, and other ingredients are locally sourced from nearby farmers and fishermen. The Cellar Bar has an extensive list of local whiskeys, and regular whiskey tastings are available. The 20 individually decorated guest rooms and suites are filled with period furniture, antiques, complimentary soft drink minibars, flat-screen TVs, Wi-Fi access, Egyptian cotton linens and complimentary laundry services. For a truly memorable stay, reserve the Sir Christopher Coote suite which features 18th-century Chinese wallpaper panels, a separate sitting room, a fireplace and large windows with views of the grounds and lake. Recent guests described the hotel as excellent, especially raving about the white-glove service, palatial grounds and decor. While a stay here is not cheap, many guests said the experience was more than worth it.
