Scale of 90-100
Restored 1826 Regency mansion-hotel, widely regarded as one of the architectural gems of Ireland and owned by Chicago businessman Fred Krehbiel. Set in 614 acres of parkland, the splendid house is the embodiment of sumptuous comfort. Public spaces are elegant, with a grand foyer marked by Corinthian columns, a sunlit conservatory and an 80-foot-long library with woodburning fireplace. Each of the 20 rooms is individually decorated with authentic furniture, resplendent fabrics and original art. Meals are served in the exquisite State Dining Room or Van Der Hagen Dining Room. The Ballyfin Bar is a charming room set next to the enviably stocked wine cellar. Spa, gym, sauna, vitality pool and 46-foot indoor pool. Fishing, shooting, golf and hiking; wine and whiskey tastings can be arranged. No children under age 9. Closed January to mid-February.
