Step House Hotel **** | Hotels Carlow
The Step House Hotel**** is a beautiful Georgian town house brimming with character, now lovingly transformed into a private country house hotel. The Garden Room – seating up to 200 people – opens out onto a beautifully designed landscape garden, with views overlooking the impressive Mount Leinster (796 meters) and Blackstairs Mountains. Located opposite the gates of the MacMurrough Kavanagh estate, former Kings of Leinster, the Step House is an untouched oasis of national history and country living. Originally built in 1808 many of the original characteristics have been wonderfully restored. This family run hotel, which has been in the Coady name for five generations is beaming with authenticity, character and atmosphere. Each of the 19 bedrooms is individually decorated with bespoke handcrafted furniture and art pieces, evoking a by gone age in effortless style. The penthouse suite is an added luxury, richly decorated in spacious surroundings with breathtaking views of Mount Leinster and the Blackstairs Mountains from a private terrace. Modern technology is discreetly installed in all bedrooms for guests who need to stay in touch while escaping from it all.
The Cellar Restaurant offers fabulous dining, with open fires and vaulted ceilings with a smart but casual experience. Alan Foley, the celebrated Head Chef, cooks French cuisine with menus designed seasonally, including locally sourced organic produce, ensuring the highest of quality. Serving diners and residents, the Bar provides a variety of live entertainment from Jazz to Spanish guitar.
Bar 1808 is a lively traditional bar with the agenda of warmth, atmosphere and fun. The mahogany island bar and welcoming staff is the ideal place for a good pint and excellent food. Escape to the country in style and enjoy the relaxed elegance of this restored hotel with its idyllic setting and individual charm. A great achievement for Alan Foley and the staff of the Stephouse Hotel “Restaurant of the Month”.
The Step House is located in the centre of Borris, a beautiful Georgian village, full of charm and heritage nestling in the fertile valley of the River Barrow, below the curve of the Blackstairs Mountains.
