Kardashian and Kanye Swoon Over 'Grandest hotel in Ireland'

Ballyfin House, situated in Laois, has been branded the 'grandest hotel in the county', according to travel publication Conde Nast.

Last May, celebrity couple Kim Kardashian and Kanye West honeymooned in the luxurious six-star hotel and gushed over how "calm and beautiful" it was.

According to the Irish Daily Mirror, the entire castle can be rented for €25,000-per-night and it has previously played host to other massive stars such as Michael Jackson.

US rapper West and and his TV personality wife dominated the world's press during their relaxing, medieval-style break in Co Laois - which the press deemed an unusual choice of destination for such a high-profile couple.

Ireland is proving hugely popular with the world's top travel bible this year with a number of Irish destinations included in this months  list of '50 things to do in Europe before you die'.


Conde Nast also praised the Lismore Castle in Waterford which was once a favourite haunt of legendary musician and actor Fred Astaire.

The Irish Daily Mirror also reported that a tour of the hotspots in the In Bruges film, starring Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson, also makes the list.
