Hannah & Paddy Flynn
For over thirty years Roundwood House has been welcoming guests through its’ doors. An early Georgian house built in the 1730s, it is both pretty and architecturally interesting, boasting large beautifully proportioned bedrooms and warm, welcoming reception rooms. It also has many wonderful outbuildings to be explored. Situated on 18 acres of park and woodland at the foot of the unspoilt Slieve Bloom Mountains in County Laois, it is just over an hour from Dublin. Roundwood is a special place to stay for many reasons – it has a fascinating history, its owners Hannah & Paddy are passionate about what they do and treat all their guests like friends, and Paddy is an excellent chef using the best of local ingredients to create delicious and memorable meals. Time spent in Roundwood will give you the opportunity to switch off to the outside world, enjoy good food and wine, as well as the company of other like-minded guests, explore many local sites of interest and to experience genuine Irish hospitality at its best.
Myself & my husband took over the running of Roundwood House from my parents in 2008, just in time for the recession! We have two little girls, Amelie & Lucie, who think living in a 300 year old house with guests coming and going daily is normal.
