A fairytale getaway in Ireland's most lavish mansion
What we think
Skylark only includes hotels that meet our stamp of approval. Our editorial review for this one isn’t ready yet — but we’re working on it! Below is the hotel’s own description.
This 1826 mansion has been restored to its former glory after eight years of restoration. Long admired as the most lavish Regency mansion in Ireland, this country house style hotel offers the very best of Irish hospitality on 600 acres of lush green. Ballyfin is the perfect combination of 18th century elegance and 21st century decadence with its romantic period detailing and unique modern features.
