Manor houses, castles, rectories — when it comes to finding lodging in Ireland, hotel stays can be in some stunning locales. Good Hotel Guide has highlighted some of the most stunning houses in the country that also double as hotels on Huffington Post

Why not start at the legendary Ballymaloe House, which was once the remains of a Norman Castle? It is well-known for its food, which is seasonal, local, organic and home-grown fare. 

The Lorum Old Rectory is another classic. 

“The home of host Bobbie Smith, staying at Lorum Old Rectory is very much like being invited over to a friend’s house,” says Good Hotel Guide. 

The property is located in Barrow River Valley at the foot of the Blackstairs Mountains and offers beautiful scenery as well as delicious five-course meals, according to Good Hotel Guide. 

Enniscoe House is a treasure, with high ceilings and four-poster beds as well as walled gardens and a picturesque landscape at the foot of Mount Nephin. Another Georgian country house, Rathmullan House, is located at the beginning of the Wild Atlantic Way.

“Family run for two generations, it has maintained many original features such as marble fireplaces. It’s warm, welcoming and does an exceptionally good breakfast buffet with home-baked bread and homemade jams,” says Good Hotel Guide.
