The Step House Hotel

The Step House Hotel is a four star, family run, boutique hotel located on the main street of Borris, Co. Carlow bringing together a lovely old Georgian house, a pub which has been in the family for 5 generations, and some chic contemporary additions to create a cosy and elegant boutique hotel full of character, and a continuing story of a genuine family enterprise, undertaken with enthusiasm and passion.

The attractive ballroom is a graceful backdrop for polished weddings, a room with fluted columns, cut glass chandeliers and touches of rich brocade that can seat up to 200 guests, filled with style, and with light from the floor to ceiling French doors out onto the lawns.

Step House Hotel is owned and run by Cait and James Coady and their family with passion, flair and energy. It's a much-loved luxurious gourmet hideaway, and a hospitable and welcoming kingdom.

A big draw for wedding couples is the beautiful food created by Head Chef Alan Foley and his team. Alan, formerly of Peacock Alley, Sheen Falls Lodge and Chapter One, thinks, talks and breathes food and has a philosophy of using the best local ingredients in his classical and sophisticated cooking.

Brides and grooms are lucky enough to stay in the marvellous penthouse suite on the night of their wedding, an impressive series of rooms with fabulous views at the top of the house, with a private terrace, sauna, and a living area with a sweeping curve of floor to ceiling windows, with Mount Leinster as the backdrop.

This idyllic country setting with its relaxed yet elegant banqueting suite, exceptional cuisine and traditional hospitality will leave friends and family with memories to treasure forever.
