Delightful ‘Gardener’s Cottage’ is the perfect romantic getaway
If you are looking for a romantic getaway in Ireland anytime soon then you need look no further than this delightful cottage in Co Laois.
‘The Gardener’s Cottage’ is actually a side-building of the beautiful five-star Ballyfin hotel.
It had been in a state of disrepair until the owners spent a great deal of time and money transforming it into a charming and luxurious hideaway.
The Gardener’s Cottage sits adjacent to the main country house hotel. It consists of two floors of luxury, with tasteful décor and features throughout.
Take a look at some of the shots from inside.
The cottage will be open to the public soon, with prices expected to be around €2,000 per night.
Guests will be free to enjoy the views and sights of the 614 acres of countryside, lake and gardens and woodlands surrounding the luxury hotel.
They can choose to drive around the grounds themselves in their own golf buggy, or have one of the staff act as a chauffeur for them.
Damien Bastiat is the General Manager of Ballyfin hotel and was delighted to talk about the upcoming opening of The Gardener’s Cottage.
He said: “Since Ballyfin opened as a hotel in 2011, The Gardener’s Cottage has been in a state of disrepair and it has been a long-term goal of ours to transform it into guest accommodation. This year it has finally been realised and we’re delighted to have brought The Gardener’s Cottage back to life.”
A final set of fire and safety checks are dues to carried out on the cottage in the coming weeks, and then it will be set to be opened to the public.
