Hidden Ireland - Ireland's private house a world away from Irish hotels

\"\"

Old Irish house - stylish bathroom
Hidden Ireland is a collection of magnificent private houses throughout Ireland who offer seasonal accommodation, albeit on a grand scale, to the public.

A stay in one of these great houses is quite unlike anything else you will experience in Ireland. "Downton Abbey" addicts (like myself) will delight in the country house experience where you are made to feel more like an invited friend than a paying guest.

Whilst not obviously commercial and not to be confused with country house hotels, these wonderful homes (most of which have been in the same family for many generations) offer something truly different.

A peek at the Hidden Ireland brochure reveals a wealth of stunning, architectural gems from which to choose. Perhaps a romantic Victorian hunting lodge, on a wild river teaming with fish, a Palladian mansion on a vast country estate with leafy walks or an elegant Georgian townhouse right in the heart of Dublin.

Although still available many of the pursuits traditionally associated with country life, like hunting, fishing and shooting, have naturally translated into organic farming, with fresh fish and game, vegetables and fruit in season often featuring on the evening menu. Dinner (by request) is usually served at a communal dining table (although you can dine alone if you wish) designed to further enhance your appreciation of Irish country house hospitality.

Apart from fine wine and conversation, you never know who you will be your fellow guests and what life long friendships might be forged at these impromptu gatherings. Repeat business is a testament to and the lifeblood of these establishments, ensuring a continuity of tenure and responsibility for the second generation of hosts and their children, who are breathing new life into Hidden Ireland. What has been their privilege is now their great pleasure to share with you.
