We had a truly enjoyable week at the Rathbrack House for our three generation family vacation. We are from the U.S. and this was our first trip to Ireland. The house was everything as advertised and more. It was in mint condition. It was like staying at a small boutique hotel for just our family with the amenities of a home. The large indoor pool, jacuzzi, and sauna were what one might see at a fitness center, not in a private home. The exercise room was well equipped. The bedrooms were all expansive and well insulated from noise so that each room seemed very private and each of three families at the house had plenty of space. The dining table could easily sit 12 although we only had 10 and the kitchen was well equipped. The grounds were expansive and gave the true sense of a country estate. Yet the house was only 4 minutes from the town of Kells with restaurants and shops. The location suited us well as it was an easy drive to Dublin and we were able to make a day trip to Galway as well as excursions to castles and other sites. The owners could not have been nicer. They met us at the house when we arrived to give us a tour and explanation for the appliances, televisions, fitness center, etc.
Shared amazing special family memories in Rathbrack House. Property itself was well maintained, beautifully clean and the owners were so friendly and helpful. We were a party of 15 from young to old and Rathbrack House catered very well for this. We all had individual space and yet lovely communal family areas to share. The adults and kids adored the pool area and down to floats and toys provided from the owners there was plenty of fun to be had. The kitchen was any chef's dream with more than adequate space and equipment to cook in! The grounds left everyone with a feeling of inner peace and the waterfall was lovely to gaze at from the pool area. Thanks for a lovely stay it was bliss.
Rathbrack House is fantastic, the quality and beauty exceeded only by the care and kindness of Mark and Laura! Our extended family was pampered and entertained by what was the most beautifully constructed and decorated home. Lots of room, and lots of rooms, to allow both togetherness and the occasional independent interest. Dream kitchen, dream pool / spa / sauna / exercise room, dream bedrooms. Totally first class, all the way. Couldn't recommend more highly - it was the best of the best.
