I don't how to begin to describe such a wonderful stay. I was really looking for the experience of staying at a real, historic Irish country home with my family and found it at Ballyvolane. The house and grounds are gorgeous. There was something for us all to enjoy. For the adults, walks through the walled garden or some quiet...

We were very fortunate to have our wedding weekend at Ballyvolane House recently. Our day was better than we could ever have imagined, absolutely flawless, romantic and relaxed.

Recently attended a wedding here and it is just gorgeous - lots of little details - the food was spectactular - and the little bar area is adorable! The grounds are immaculate and the house itself is so warm and welcoming! Even though we didn't stay in the house itself , we would definitely go back to stay there again.
