Welcome to Hidden Ireland, a collection of private historic houses providing luxurious bed & breakfast accommodation & exclusive rentals throughout Ireland.
Hidden Ireland is a fascinating collection of historic country houses where visitors can stay as guests. All privately owned and offering bed & breakfast or exclusive private hire, they are as far removed from modern hotels in Ireland as can be imagined. Each unique house is full of character and quirks with the personalities of their owners woven into the very fabric of their homes. The group has come to represent a stand-out offering for visitors looking for an authentic experience of the famed Irish hospitality.
Romantic Weekend Getaways
Hidden Ireland country houses give visitors an opportunity to explore the best of the Irish countryside while our town houses are a relaxing way to visit Irish towns and cities. These beautiful and fascinating houses, like other boutique hotels in Ireland, also offer everything from romantic breaks to fishing holidays to intimate vintage weddings, so you can stay as a single guest or take the whole house for a week-end or more.
Stately Homes & Beautiful Landscaped Gardens
Since it’s inception in the 1980s Hidden Ireland has grown an enviable reputation for excellence in accommodation, in visitor experience and in good food. Houses range from Ireland’s grandest and most important Georgian buildings to charming rural rectories. They are united by their owners’ commitment to traditional hospitality and good food in a rapidly changing world. Nearly all our country houses provide dinner at night, where the menus are informed by a field-to-fork ethos and a commitment to heritage recipes and preserving forgotten skills; an experience not to be missed.
Hidden Ireland Houses offer a wide range of activities from fishing to horse riding or walking and hiking. Many of the houses have their own kitchen gardens and farms where you will see the vegetables being picked for your supper, where you can collect the eggs for your breakfast or eat the fish you caught in the river that day.
