We kept the fire lit, listened to the rain come down outside, made friends with the cats and dogs, had morning walks around the house and enjoyed the stunning views of the countryside. We were taken care of in a way that we had never experienced before.

Me, my sister and our elderly dog spent the May bank holiday weekend at the Forge, which is one of two self-catering accommodation options at Roundwood House. I haven’t enjoyed a holiday so much for years.
Hannah and Paddy fitted us in The Forge on short notice, gave us a lovely welcome and ensured we had everything we could need. They are lovely people, and the experiences staying here were some of the best Ireland offered.

Set at the foot of the Slieve Bloom Mountains, just over an hour from Dublin, Roundwood House is a beautiful and historically significant 18th century Irish Country House. The Forge is an open plan, split-level apartment that occupies what used to be the old forge at the house. Filled with books and paintings and set in 18 acres of park and woodland, The Forge is a perfect escape, or a great base for exploring the Slieve Bloom Mountains. Walking trails, cycling routes, horseback riding and fishing are all available locally.
