History aficionados and fans of traditional Irish music will love this vast, informal B&B in racecourse-rich Co. Kildare

Music lovers, prepare for a unique peek into the life of Andrew Rynne, a doctor and flautist whose gated Georgian manor has intriguing links to Ireland’s modern folk music scene. This 1798 spread became Andrew’s family home in 1926, musical motifs dot its grand entrance hall.

Wake up to sunshine through huge windows and birdsong from the rookery. Breakfasts of salmon, eggs and cereals are served in the AGA-warmed kitchen. Pop back for a cuppa any time – there’s a laid-back feel here. Explore the gardens and woodlands, walk two hours to Donadea Castle or seek out wild hikes in Glendalough and the Wicklow Mountains beyond.

Grand elements mix with comfortable clutter and cobwebs. Spend evenings at the fireside piano in a vast lounge whose comfy sofas speak of epic late-night sessions.

  • Newgrange (80km) - a prehistoric monument in County Meath, built during the Neolithic period, making it older than Stonehenge and the Egyptian pyramids.
  • There are buses to Dublin City Centre every hour, a journey of just under one hour. We're within one mile of Grand Canal walkway, a clear flat walkway going 20 miles east to Dublin City and 100 miles west to Shannon Harbor.
  • Donadea Forest Park and Japanese Gardens are nearby for days out. We're within one mile of Mondello Park motor racecourse and five miles of The Curragh Racecourse and The National Stud - Ireland's oldest racecourse.
  • The house has a fascinating history with a spacious escape tunnel leading to the woods. Involved in The Battle of Prosperous 1798 and the Civil War 1922. It's home to regular live music concerts and is often used as a background in period films!
