Description

Roundwood House in County Laois is one of Ireland’s finest mid-size houses of the Georgian period. It was once described by Desmond Guinness, co-founder of the Irish Georgian Society, as having a “marvellous doll’s house-like quality”. A rambling avenue leads you through a welcoming committee of animals and into a bright, spacious hall. There is a drawing room, study and dining room, where the combination of log fires, antique furniture and absence of televisions may actually make you believe you’ve been transported back to the 18th century. Situated the old Coach House is Hannah’s father Frank’s Library of Civilisation, a library that in his words “is intended to follow the path of civilisation and to celebrate those individuals who successfully climbed onto the shoulders of millions to give us something new and beautiful; a poem, a philosophy, a scientific theory, a painting, a symphony, a new kind of politics or technology." The library contains about two thousand volumes. If you decide to venture out into the surrounding countryside there is no shortage of things to see and do. The Slieve Bloom are a delight for hikers and cyclists of all abilities. Horse-riding, fishing and golfing are also available locally. Meanwhile, foraging, yoga and guided mountain walks can be arranged upon request.
