Irresistible Autumn Breaks at The Johnstown Estate in Co. Meath
Plan the perfect Autumn break at The Johnstown Estate with a two-night stay that includes breakfast each morning and dinner on an evening of your choice. If Autumn strolls along the Royal Canal Greenway followed by amazing food next to an open fire sounds like your kind of cosy, then this is the perfect break for you. Set on 120 acres of parkland overlooking the river Blackwater, this 1750’s Georgian Rural Residence is a haven of four-star comfort, luxury, warm service, great food and lots of lovely ways to relax.
Located just 35 minutes from Dublin, The Johnstown Estate is an ideal base to explore Ireland’s Ancient East and family attractions such as Tayto Park, Dublin Zoo, The National Aquatic Centre, and The Irish National Stud and gardens. Or, take a break from the car, reconnect with nature and discover Ireland’s longest off-road cycle route at the Royal Canal Greenway. Stretching over 100Km from Maynooth to Athlone, it is accessible by foot or bicycles, which are available from the hotel.
Prefer a shorter Autumn stroll? Explore the Estate grounds with its traditional walled garden that leads to a riverside woodland walking trail. Little guests can look out for magical happenings high in the treetops with fairy doors dotted around the woods. The hotel will even provide you with Wellington boots if you forget your own.
After you have enjoyed the great outdoors, relax on an armchair in the light-filled atrium with a great book, indulge in a delicious seasonally inspired Afternoon Tea or just sit back and relax with a cocktail, and bathe in the light from the double-height windows and glass ceiling.
During your stay, take advantage of the superb amenities in the 30,000 m² leisure club. Make a splash in the beautiful 20-metre swimming pool, complete with poolside loungers and a Kids pool. Float between the Jacuzzi and the outdoor hot tub, where the thermal waters will massages muscles and minds alike. Or work up a sweat and release the day’s stresses at our well-equipped modern gym.
On an evening of your choice, enjoy a two-course evening meal in The Coach House Brasserie. Instantly feel at home with its booth-seating and roaring fire in Kitty’s Corner. The menu at The Coach House includes both casual, modern dishes and traditional, hearty crowd-pleasers. Complement your meal with a drink from the full bar menu, a signature cocktail or select from a wine list designed to match and enhance the menu.
It’s impossible to pull yourself away from The Johnstown Estate but before you leave, schedule a little ‘me time’ and visit the newly refurbished Spa. Beautifully designed and uncompromising in choice, discover a Rooftop Experience, Thermal Suite, 15 treatment rooms, a couple’s room and Rasul mud and mineral treatment bath. Indulge in one of our most popular signature treatments, The Johnstown Estate Full Body Massage, or pamper yourself with a four-hour Thermal Experience followed by lunch in the very chic Spa Cafe.
Whether you want to unwind in the peace and tranquillity of the countryside or have a fun-filled break with the family, we have the perfect Autumn escape for you.
