We had a really pleasant stay at Ballyvolane house - we arrived at around 5PM on a Saturday in February and had some time to walk about the fantastic gardens before we went to our room, which was really unique and well appointed. Dinner was excellent and we met some interesting people at the dining table. We slept really well...

The whole stay was perfect. Every single thing in the house is beautiful, the wallpaper, curtains, stairs, the halls. As we parked Jenny popped her head out the door and her welcome was warm and kind. We will be back. Utter bliss.
