At this 18th-century estate, there's "enough to fill 24 hours of every day, no problem," given the championship golf course, equestrian center, and health club on its 1,500-acre grounds. Rooms are unique, with an eclectic mix of antiques and hand-embroidered fabrics. Two-bedroom Rose Garden Lodges were renovated in 2010. Contemporary Irish fare at Lady Helen includes ham hock and gherkin terrine.
