A Virtual Vacation For Me

I have wanted to go to this inn forever.
It is called the Dunraven Arms Inn, 
located in the village of Adare Ireland.
Adare Ireland was voted the most beautiful village in Ireland.
Grace Kelly spent her honeymoon here.

This is an example of one of the rooms. 
And my favorite part is that after your day of riding,
you leave your dirty boots outside your room 
and in the morning they are returned all clean and polished..
The Inns pub is the hot spot for the 'HUNTING CROWD.'
Of which I have always wanted to be a part of.
I spent a good tens years in the attire.

Fear not.....this is a huge 'go to play golf'  vacation as well.
You can bring the hubby, he can golf while the ladies go riding.
 the pool & spa
 the dining room
The pub has a piano bar!!!!
I can only imagine the men and woman who frequent this inn.
I have always wanted to be a (go back in) time traveler. 
This would be heaven on earth to me.

Have a nice weekend....
I will be here in my head,
and not at work.

Would you want to go?

  1. Love this post!
    I think that I will book a room here as well. A much needed vacation!

    Have a wonderful weekend Renee.....


  2. I spent the entire summer of 2009 in Cork, Ireland (before blog days) where I have good friends who were transferred. She & I took in everything possible. One weekend we drove to Adare so her husband could see if it would make a good golf holiday for the exec's from the states. He thought it was splendid. So did I. Imagine.
    Sending love...

  4. What's not to love about this place. Horses, stately home ambience, a piano bar, and Ireland. Sign me up!

  5. Dear Renee,
    Knowing your love for riding, this looks like the perfect place for you to spend a holiday. I can just see you getting into the spirit of it all. Such a pretty place, beautiful hotel and all the facilities for a sporty time. Hopefully you will get there sometime soon. Love the picture of 'you' in your riding gear....although, I don't know why you didn't just show one of you as you look amazing in your riding togs.
    Virtual holidays are often better than the real thing. Hold that thought !!!! XXXX

    what a great time that must have been.
    if you have any images from your trip...
    you might do a post.
    i would love to see it.


  7. So when you go look up the relatives in Sligo.
    You could rent a horse and ride
    along the coast road
    to Lord Mt Battens.

  8. J'adore VIRTUAL vacations... this looks lovely!!!
