The Hidden Ireland group is a collection of fascinating historic country houses where visitors can stay. All privately owned, the houses are as far removed from conventional hotels as could possibly be imagined, and give guests the opportunity to stay in places off the beaten track - a glimpse of a hidden side of life in Ireland. This full-colour hardback showcases the beautiful properties in the Hidden Ireland collection - from a stately home in landscaped parkland in County Monaghan to a stunning Georgian coastal retreat in County Waterford. James Fennell's photographs and Josephine Ryan's words combine to capture the essence of these beautiful houses - from the glorious architecture to the stunning interiors, and the stories, myths and family histories. This beautiful book is a rare opportunity to discover some of Ireland's finest houses.
