“It is rare to find one of these houses still in the possession of the descendants of the family that built it. Burtown is one of these treasures, passed down through the generations and still very much a family home”.
The Knight of Glin and James Peill - The Irish Country House.
“It’s a real joy being able to watch the food you eat being grown and gathered right in front of you. At The Green Barn, this contemporary restaurant set in the historic gardens of Burtown House, the visual feast begins when guests first lay eyes on the walled vegetable garden just a few meters from their tables. And that’s as far as almost 100% of the fresh produce on their plates will travel.”
