Welcome to Roundwood Country House
“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” – McKenna’s Guide: Top 100 Places to Stay in Ireland
