About this programme

7/8. The Withnail & I actor explores Ireland's best hotels, beginning by visiting the beautiful Ashford Castle which provided the setting for the 1952 film The Quiet Man. Together with Classic FM presenter John Suchet, Richard then checks in at the Belfast Europa, which is known as most bombed hotel in Europe after being attacked 28 times during the Troubles, before taking a tour of the Clarence Hotel in Dublin, which is owned by U2 frontman Bono. Finally, he visits the exclusive six-star Ballyfin, where guests are granted the chance to be lord and lady of the manor during their stay.
