Roundwood House is a country house hotel in a delightful location at the foot of the Slieve Bloom mountains, just an hour and fifteen minutes from Dublin city centre.

“…This is the old school of Irish hospitality – understated, loquacious, arranged by people who have the time to talk to you and to take care of you. The result of their patient, gracious care is that everyone feels special when staying here..." Bridgestone Guide: Top 100 Places to Stay in Ireland

Built in 1730, Roundwood House retains all of her original architectural features and invites you on a journey back in time. A dramatic two storey entrance hall greets you, while antique furniture and paintings, an extensive library and a menagerie of farm animals all form the backdrop for a relaxing stay in the unspoiled Irish countryside. Food is a very important part of the Roundwood experience, so if you enjoy good food we should get along fine. Roundwood is a perfect base for exploring the midlands and is only one hour and fifteen minutes from Dublin.

While you're here, there's plenty to keep you occupied (besides sitting by the fire with a good book and glass of wine). Walking, fishing and horse riding are all readily available in the beautiful Slieve Bloom Mountains. We are also close to some of Ireland's most charming towns, Birr, Cahir and Kilkenny (each with their own castle), as well as the Rock of Cashel and the UNESCO World Heritage site of Clonmacnoise.
