Based in the historic surroundings of the former dower house for Borris House, The Step House Hotel combines the charm of its Georgian origins with the elegance of a modern boutique establishment. Dining at The Step House Hotel is a truly unforgettable experience. Brasserie 1808, named after the year that the original part of the building was erected, is traditional in style with a classical mahogany and brass décor.
The chefs are committed to an ideology of quality food sourcing, with an emphasis on seasonal, local and artisan ingredients. They believe preparing dishes from scratch is essential to keep the art of real cooking alive. The Step House Hotel is dedicated to supporting producers and even buy whole lambs from farmers based in the vicinity of Boris.
The quality of food in The Step House Hotel is not confined to dinner. Equal care and attention
is taken at all times of the day. Overnight guests waking after a peaceful night in one of the hotel’s luxurious bedrooms can look forward to a sumptuous breakfast. There is a comprehensive buffet with homemade granola, fruit compotes, yoghurts, homemade bread and pastries plus a full Irish breakfast featuring top class local sausages and bacon. Sunday lunch is a speciality.
