Kilgraney House, a few miles outside Bagenalstown in the Barrow Valley in County Carlow, is one of those special destinations that – once sampled – breeds addiction: after your first visit, you simply have to go back. And, having gone back and enjoyed the house and the cooking and the hospitality and the gardens, you have to go back again. Why? Because there is nowhere else quite like Kilgraney. Nowhere else feels like this house. It has an air of glamour and an aesthetic which are unique. It has a style which, over the course of two decades – Bryan Leech and Martin Marley first opened their doors for guests way back in 1994 – has not aged, but which has simply matured, the sign of truly great design. In addition to the food and the aesthetic, Bryan and Martin are hosts who always try to “be true to what we set out to deliver back in 1994.” They are true to that vision, that calling, at all times, and their dedication explains the fact that people return to Kilgrany House time, after time, after time.
