A fine regency house set in 40 acres of immaculately maintained gardens and woodland, Marlfield House Hotel was established by Ray and Mary Bowe in 1978 and has long been a byword for luxury, genuine hospitality and fine food - a place where everything is sure to be right for that special occasion.
"Cooking, Cocktails and Comedy" is the promise at Savour Kilkenny 2016: in celebration of a decade of 'delicious dining and demos' this year's Festival of Food takes place over the October bank holiday weekend (October 28th-31st), and it's the biggest yet.
