Welcome to the exquisite Ballyfin Country House Hotel in Port Laoise, Ireland! With a glorious history that includes a painstaking, 9 year restoration, Ballyfin regains its throne as one of Ireland’s most lavish country retreats. Situated on a sprawling 614 acre estate, this 20 bedroom Regency manor house has been beautifully refurbished. Food is sourced from the garden and local farms; you can even pick their own fruit or collect eggs. Activities range from falconry and fishing on the lake to enjoying cooking demonstrations and whiskey tastings in the cellar. There are some great benefits available too – contact me to book! #ballyfin #luxuryhotelandspa #portlaoise #ireland #countrymanor #adventureholiday #familyholiday #romanticgetaway #perfectwedding #perfecthoneymoon #contactmetoday #360privatetravel

Our home for the next several nights. As with any semi-reunion trip, I have to bring a special treat from Rome. What better place to celebrate new and long-time friendships than in a castle in Donegal. This outdoor shot was taken at 11 pm.
