Dunbrody House – Arthurstown, Country Wexford

Photo 1 of

The great and good of Ireland and beyond make their way to this delightful country-house hotel not only for its sublime location – a perfect spot from which to soak up rugged and wild natural beauty and tranquility – but also the warm Irish welcome of husband and wife owners Kevin and Catherine Dundon. They set the bar high for excellence – from the first-class seasonal, local food (well, Kevin is a celebrity TV chef, and you can take lessons too if you fancy it) – think rack of Wexford lamb with confit shoulder in the main Harvest Room restaurant or perhaps Kilmore Quay crab cocktail from the Champagne Seafood Bar – to each of the individual rooms and suites, all of which are luxurious with gorgeous fabrics and furniture. You might also fancy a steam and an Aromatherapy Associates massage in the spa – which amazingly also serves up delicious but healthy food and snacks. There’s also a guesthouse that sleeps six. Doubles from95.


Name to Know: Gardener, Emmet, is only too happy to chat about Dunbrody’s kitchen garden, truffle trees, herbs and, of course, the wonderful collection of trees. 

See: Wander through the gardens and see the chickens and herb garden. Ask gardeners Emmett and Seamus any questions.

Eat: Seafood of course as the hotel is right on the coast, but Wexford is just as famous for amazing strawberries.

Buy: Hand-loomed bespoke rugs from Ceadogan Rugs (here on the Hook Peninsula).
