Getting away from it all is an understatement at this turreted mid-19th-century castle set on its own private island (a free car ferry at Ballinakill on the eastern edge of town provides round-the-clock access). All 19 castle rooms have hand-painted tiles and claw-foot baths, and some have four-poster beds. There are also 48 contemporary self-catering lodges on the island.
Both guests and nonguests can dine on organic fare in head chef Michael Thomas's sublime oak-panelled Munster Restaurant (three-course dinner €60), or play a round of golf on the hotel's own course (green fees €30 to €50).
