Enthusiastic new owners at this handsome Georgian house, where Pugin liked to stay – maybe en route from Rosslare just minutes away. Chris and Dublin-born Aisling are pouring energy into their new project; working on a more contemporary feel for the large, light bedrooms – with good bathrooms. Views are of the impressive parkland – some trees are as old as the house. Breakfast can be arranged early if you’ve a ferry to catch. A group could take over the whole house and use the dining room, otherwise head for good nearby eateries. Blow your cobwebs away on the local beaches, visit Wexford, New Ross and Waterford Crystal.
