The house is built on the site of what was the seat of the Aylward Family for over 500 years. Through centuries, dispossession and financial pinch, the house passed from the Aylwards to the Boltons then the Powers. This well established merchant family from Waterford City gave their family crest of Stag’s Head and Cross to the house, still proudly displayed over the grand main entrance to the hotel lobby area. Inside, a magnificent Waterford Crystal Chandelier represents the age old skills of the legendary crystal craftsmen of the city. Several generations of Powers owned Faithlegg until 1935, when it was sold to the De La Salle order of teaching Brothers. It remained a religious teaching college until the 1980’s. When it became a hotel in the late 1990’s, emphasis was placed upon keeping and restoring original features - a living timeline which tracks it’s historical importance within this area. Faithlegg is now one of a select small number of luxury hotels owned by Irish company FBD.
Bedrooms here range between the Classic rooms of a new wing built in keeping with the original house. These are compact and comfortably furnished in contemporary style, with fine linens and upholstery and state of the art bathrooms ensuite. In the original house, Master Bedrooms offer more space and luxury – four posters or king size beds, antique furnishings and paintings, plus views of the estate and surrounding countryside. All Master Bedrooms are named after key historical figures of the house. Two suites are spacious and opulent – a real treat for a special stay, or of course, for the Bride and Groom on their wedding night.
