Authentic, honest reviews, since 1979

For over 40 years, our editors have traveled the globe incognito to discover exceptional hideaways and experiences for Andrew Harper members.

“The idea for this newsletter back in 1979 — to share information about peaceful and unspoiled sanctuaries with a limited and compatible group of sophisticated travelers — remains at the core of its identity today.”
“Most obviously impressive is the museum-quality art in the public rooms, notably a Picasso and a Louise Bourgeois.”
“The other guests were Scots, which made for a lively evening when we all dined together.”

Hideaway Report

The New Scotland

Our editor returns to find that the country’s latest hotels have dramatically upped the game there.

Cashel House Hotel

Connemara, Ireland

A perfect start on your venture on the Wild Atlantic Way, Cashel House Hotel overlooks the majestic Cashel Bay on the west coast of Ireland.

“Located at the head of Cashel Bay in the scenic Connemara region, this country house hotel, owned by the McEvilly family since 1968, is set within a dignified white manor, swathed in climbing plants and surrounded by manicured lawns and tall woodlands.”
Equidistant between Playa del Carmen and Tulum, this hotel, situated on 50 pristine and private beachfront acres, was originally the vacation villa of Italian duchess Rosa de Ferrari.
