You cannot understate the importance of Viewmount House to the hospitality culture of the Irish Midlands.
In creating one of the most significant modern country houses, owners Beryl and James Kearney have done an inestimable service to their county and their region. They have done it by offering superb hospitality, and great modern Irish cooking, in a great country house and restaurant.
But to really get the best of Viewmount House and the excellent VM restaurant, you have to stay the night. Mr Kearney’s patient, studious searches through the auction rooms of Ireland means that here is a house where every aspect of furnishing in the public and private rooms is apposite, appropriate, and understated. And their signature Boxty Benedict for breakfast is one of the nicest, and most original, things you can eat for breakfast anywhere in Ireland.
