Morning coffee, light lunches and afternoon tea are all served in the Manor House and can be enjoyed in a variety of reception rooms, each with its own particular character:
The Morning Room
As its name suggests, The Morning Room is a beautiful place to enjoy a cup of coffee with a book or a newspaper, as it catches the easterly morning light. This is just one of several areas within the main Manor House where beverages, snacks and light meals are served and enjoyed. It’s worth taking a moment or two to look at the paintings, antiques and china. Some pieces have been in the house for generations, others bought at auctions in Ireland, England, Spain and Italy.
The Majors Bar
The residents’ bar at the Manor House is called the Major's Bar, and is named after Major Dermot McCalmont, husband of Lady Helen – after whom the restaurant is named. This is an ideal spot to spend a restful hour or two, reading the newspaper or browsing through a magazine, enjoying morning coffee. The Major's Bar provides the perfect setting for an after dinner ‘night-cap’.
