Did you know? Alchymist Grand Hotel and Spa


By: Five Star Alliance

Dum u Jeziska, aka House at the Jesus Child, houses the Alchymist Grand Hotel and Spa. The oldest preserved part of the Dum u Jeziska is the rear portion facing the courtyard, which was built after 1591. The lower part of the original tower structure, with its perimeter masonry supported by steel bars, dates from the fortification of the Lesser Town in 1257, the oldest Premyslid fortification.

Alchymist Hotel and Spa
The Dum u Jeziska is also linked with several legends. One of them is that a convent once stood there and a nun seriously violated the rules of her order. As punishment for her transgression, she was bricked alive. Legend claims that her unhappy soul has been wandering the property since; however, the legend also suggests that the nun will be freed only when the house built on the former convent foundations is demolished and the nun's remains are buried.

Did You Know? Adare Manor Hotel and Golf Resort


By: Five Star Alliance

If a passer-by had stopped to look at the Dunraven family home in the 1830s he would have seen a typical Georgian house. Returning twenty years later, he would have found that modest structure had disappeared and been replaced by the exceptional Neo-Gothic Manor that stands to this day as Adare Manor Hotel and Golf Resort. The house is initially reminiscent of a chateau, but many of its features are shared by great residences of the era in Britain and Ireland. Mysteriously, the Manor is laid out as a Calendar House. 365 stained windows and 52 chimneys mark the annual tally of days and weeks. Sleuthing visitors may be able to spot references to the 7 days of the week and 12 months of the year.
