Located on an isthmus between the lakes of Lough Rynn and Lough Erril, the Lough Rynn Estate was the home to many wealthy families in Ireland. Opening in 2006 as a hotel, the estate got much more attention for the renovation that had occurred. It’s now used as a wedding venue, and the gardens are well known in this area. We were told we “must go” by a woman we met on a forest stroll, who announced briskly “Off you go” and sent us on our way. We ran into some wayward cows on the road to Lough Rynn.
