Mulvarra House

Noreen Ardill's friendly and well-maintained modern house is in a stunning location overlooking the River Barrow above the ancient and picturesque little harbour of St Mullins and, although it may seem unremarkable from the road, this relaxing place is full of surprises.


Comfortably furnished bedrooms have balconies to take full advantage of views of the romantic Barrow Valley, for example, and not only is there the luxury of (limited) room service, but even a range of treatments (massage, mud wraps, refresher facials) to help guests unwind from the stresses of everyday life and make the most of this magical place.


Noreen - a keen self-taught cook - prepares dinners for residents to enjoy in the dining room which also overlooks the river: quality produce, much of it local, is used in home-made soups, seafood paté, fresh poached Barrow salmon, stuffed loin of pork and Baileys bread & butter pudding, all of which are well-established favourites, although menus are varied to suit guests' preferences.


Genuinely hospitable and reasonably priced, this is a tranquil place where the host wants guests to relax and make the most of every moment.


This would make an excellent base to explore this beautiful area, and special breaks are offered.
