What’s not to love? Great food, warm hosts, and a restful night’s sleep in a four-poster bed await you in this idyllic country mansion, only a half-hour’s drive southwest from Belfast. Host John Mathers, whose family has owned this house since it was built in the early 18th century, is a trained chef, and his gourmet dinners are a real treat. (They’re also open to non-hotel guests, so be sure to make dinner reservations by noon on the day.) Seasonal menus, prepared with many ingredients from the house’s own garden, feature local meats and seafood. Guest rooms are spacious and light-filled, with floor-to-ceiling windows; one room has a four-poster, while another has a king-size canopy bed. Check the website for special offers, including romantic weekend breaks.
