"Decadent beds and surroundings, beautiful gourmet food! "

We stayed in Marlfield house last July for a one night stay-cation and had opted for a standard room having seen how opulent the room decor was on the website. We were so pleased to be told on arrival that we were upgraded to the Georgian state room. The large stately room is located at side of the house overlooking the wildfowl reservation with peacocks roaming freely outside our french doors. The drapes and furnishing was decadently decorated in ruby tones of red and burgundy. The room had a writing desk a sitting area around an opulent fireplace, a double sink bathroom with a bathtub and shower and also a TV and stereo which we didn't use. It was such a pleasure to wake up to to the tall Georgian ceiling above your head and the sound of swans and peacocks outside your bedroom door. Marlfield House is a member of the prestigious world wide Relais & Chateaux luxury hotel group and is a member of Ireland’s Blue Book. It is located conveniently only 45 minutes away from Dublin. The drawing attraction to this luxury hotel was not only its beautifully decorated grounds and its interior but its fine dining with its freshly grown produce and selectively sourced ingredients we were excited to sample its Mediterranean and French inspired cuisine which was part of the package we opted for. The dinner setting was like a scene from the Great Gatsby. The restaurant itself is housed in the glass conservatory overlooking the gardens with its shiny mirrors, frescoed walls, white linen and sparkling silver and glassware, we felt like we were suspended in time tasting the sumptuous meal comprising of scallop with truffle purée and pancetta as a starter, halibut with foie gras and pomme purée for the main and of course creme brûlée for dessert. Magic! Our stay was that, truly magical, we were looked after by the wonderful staff who were discretely around but attentive to our needs. We felt relaxed at home albeit a stately home. I recommend a walk around the grounds after breakfast (which is included in the special offer deal they had on offer) to really absorb the beauty of this hotel. We will definitely stay in Marlfield House again. Maybe on our next anniversary ;)
"Fabulousness all the way!"

Our trip in Marlfield was just amazing, after being upgraded upon arrival, we enjoyed a most fantastic stay, the staff were courteous and the dining staff were faultless. Both meals Friday and Saturday night were great, great selections each night, pre dinner drinks in the library and the general atmosphere was exquisite. This is an expensive get away but so worthwhile! On the saturday we did a 12k walk in nearby askamore, which was scenic and so tranquil, got us in the mood for the 5 course meal that awaited us in Marlfield that evening. This hotel is a gem and definitely worth going back to!
"Exquisite, a joy to stay here!"

My husband and au recently stayed at this idyllic Country Home, my only regret is that it was only for one night-too short to fully enjoy what this wonderful place has to offer. We were delighted to be upgraded upon arrival and enjoyed luxurious spa treatments before a delicious meal. The food was impeccable and the extremely high standard to service was so refreshing& an absolute delight. Would highly recommend this
"great place to unwind and switch off to the world"

Stayed at marlfield house on a friday deal which is a lot more expensive to what you would normally pay for a night away. However it was a case of paying extra and getting a lot extra in return. you don't mind paying extra as long as you are getting a return which was definitely the case. Overall we had a very relaxing time here in a great place. Which has left my wife looking forward to going back again as it was so enjoyable.

Marlfield house is just a few minutes drive outside Gorey. We got the train from Dublin and it was a leisurely journey. We had tea in the town and because it was a sunny day, we opted to walk to the hotel which took us about 15 mins. There is a path all along the road so it is quite safe. The house is very striking as you can tell from the photos on their website and the gardens are ideal to relax in. A stroll out the back means a chance to spot hens, fowl and so on roaming the herb gardens. Squirrels dart about the small woods further down. The rooms all seem quite clean and well maintained, out bed was a very comfie and warm one and adjoining bathroom was spotless. The shower was brilliant and the pressure was ideal. We opted for tea, coffee and biscuits. The coffee was pretty good. I like mine like a kick to the face but presumably the hotel have to cater for broader tastes :) Their biscuits were homemade and delicious. The study room was very relaxing and a number of other people sat there reading their newspapers and enjoying the fireside. Both the common areas and the rooms have a real old elegant luxury to them. I've stayed in sharper, more stylish looking rooms elsewhere but this brand of comfort is almost antique. All this comes at a price. Tea and biscuits will set you back a tenner and snacks and starters anything from €6 - 14 pp. We opted to have dinner in their own restaurant. This was probably the single fanciest dining experience I've had. The food was very good, the dining service was excellent and the wine was more than agreeable, if extremely pricey. All the dishes we had were artfully prepared and hot when they arrived. The waiters coordinated the arrival of our food and revealed each dish simultaneously in grand fashion. I thought my starter was a little on the small size but it made up for it in flavour. The whole experience was very relaxed and unhurried. Breakfast was also impressive and the freshest local ingredients are used. What they don't produce themselves, the source locally. We followed up our breakfast with another stroll before retiring to the hotel to read by their fireside again. I've given it four stars because I wasn't totally blown away by the experience but I was very satisfied.
5 Stars all the where are you, Superb period property, beautiful gardens. Food of the highest quality, staffs attention to detail rarely found these days. Had a very relaxing break for our 36th wedding anniversary. Highly recommend
"Charming Country Houe Hotel"
12/01/14 Suzu396 Puerto Vallarta
We were recently introduced to Marlfield by friends who live in Canada, but are Irish, and have a home in the south which they visit a couple of times a year. They collected us at the airport in Dublin, and we were taken to Marlfield for a stay on the way to their house. What a glorious place.. It's a marvellous country house hotel, where you feel as though you are the guests in a private home. Each bedroom is charming, and uniquely decorated - we had an all soft green palate, which we loved. The ambiance is delightful, as is the decor and the attention to detail. Dining was a pleasure, and looking out onto the lawns and gardens was bliss. A fabulous start to our Irish holiday.
"Our Wedding Day"
11/25/14 DuaneJames Dublin, Ireland
We chose Marlfield House as our wedding venue because we wanted somewhere intimate & romantic in a country house setting. What a day we had! Marlfield is a beautiful old house with lovely furniture & paintings. It is much loved & cared for by the staff & management. Cocktails & canapes were served on the lawns under the watchful eye of some peacocks while listening to a string quartet. Dinner was served in the dining room & conservatory which were exquisitely decorated with fresh flowers & candelabras. The food was delicious & the service was excellent. The attention to detail was outstanding. To conclude, Marlfield House was magical & has given us many happy memories of our special day. Our guests were equally captivated by the experience.

If you were a 17th century aristocrat the rooms at marfield would be familiar to you,even the books were classical.the owner Mrs Bowe was very friendly and interested in us and how our trip was going.nice food and a good wine list.The garden was great fun for the kids and it looked like a great place as wedding venue. You would expect high standards from a realis chateaux and it did not disappoint but for me the rooms are among the best in the business..
"worthy of a return visit"
11/12/14 nashiesmam Kildare, Ireland
Attended a family wedding here a short time back as a guest and really enjoyed the experience. All the staff are a credit to Marlfield and the owners are exceptional I would say that nothing would have been too much bother to them. Just shows that been in business 36 years it definitely is the personal touch and owners on the ground supervising everyday is why they are still in business after all those years. Wedding meal was fab, rooms unique, breakfast buffet so fresh and tasty would be worthy of a return visit.
