The colour schemes throughout are fresh and contemporary, where creams, sage greens and off-whites, antiques and artworks, flatscreen tvs and gleaming marble come together in an expert blend of old world and up to date.

There are also self-catering two-bedroom cottages and apartments at the Step House Hotel, and a marvelous penthouse suite (adored by brides-to-be!), an impressive series of rooms with fabulous views at the top of the house, with a private terrace, sauna, and a living area with a sweeping curve of floor to ceiling windows, with Mount Leinster as the backdrop.
