The country-houses of this proud nation seem the essence of luxury, and are exemplified by its warm hospitality


From Michelin-starred fare to championship golf courses by stunning country estates, Ireland is a modern-day treasure island. Amidst the rolling mountains and blankets of green you'll find a island nation that's world-renowned for its special blend of hospitality.

For the last word in luxury, book a special stay at Ballyfin, one of the most enchanting country house hotels on the planet, voted by Condé Nast readers in 2016 as 'The world's best hotel'. Housed in a magnificent 1820s building, the hotel seamlessly blends Regency grandeur with 21st century necessities and homely service, not to mention exquisite cuisine. The Luxury Explorer team has visited on many occasions and can safely say that you won't fail to be impressed.
