A Great Escape

painting standing in 5 acres of grounds, Salville house sits on a hilltop, surrounded by mature trees, overlooking the River Slaney valley; a few miles from the cathedral town of enniscorthy, on Ireland's south east coast. 'Gordon & Jane have created a hilltop haven' writes Fodor's guide to Ireland.....' food and relaxation are the order of the day'. An ideal location for the independent minded traveller ; for those seeking a relaxed ambience off the well beaten track. We are close to the port of Rosslare and a comfortable base for exploring the county of Wexford and beyond. Here at the house facilities include croquet, badminton and boules For diners, 'bring the best wine you can afford' writes a guest in this year's Good hotel Guide.



We've won a Cesar award - Irish country house of the year.
Salville House has been named Irish country house of the year in the 2013 edition of the prestigous Good Hotel Guide for Great Britain and Ireland.
Just 10 cesars - named after celebrated hotelier cesar Ritz - are awarded each year by this leading independent guide and we are delighted to have been chosen in this category.

"Salville House is one of the great country house addresses. It's bohemian, it's unique, and Gordon Parker's cooking is brilliant.... This is as good as country house cooking gets and it makes Salville a true icon address."

"The principal memory of our first dinner at Salville is that of an aroma banquet.... After the first mouthful we knew that this was going to be one of those meals that is marred only by the realisation that it will be over all too soon."
