County Laois | Ireland 

Engaged to provide pre-opening hospitality expertise to one of Ireland's most architecturally significant neoclassical estates.

Ballyfin Demense comprises 900 acres of woodlands, pastoral land, formal gardens, lakes and garden follies providing the perfect showcase for the owner's exquisite collection of Irish art and antiques from the 16th to 20th-century.

 For Matthews Hospitality this comprehensive project began with a conceptualization of the guest experience and provided all operational requirements. 

 This early 19th-century manor house underwent a meticulous restoration to provide 15 state-rooms, grand public areas, and back of house facilities. 

Working alongside historical preservation and restoration experts of the highest order enriched this fascinating assignment.

Today as the recipient of multiple accolades and awards, Ballyfin triumphs as an incomparable and highly respected European Country House Hotel experience.
