My cousin had her wedding here and they were across the board awesome. The set up was absolutely perfect for the wedding. The hotel didn't nickel and dime you for parking or Internet. The service was awesome. An example was I got in early before lunch opened but was starving. No worries they set me up my own table in...

I really enjoyed staying at the Ballymaloe House for three nights in June 2014. Breakfast was always excellent, and dinner was also great. The internet did not work well, but it's such a lovely location and close to many attractions. The staff was very accommodating.

We found this hotel delightful. The rooms were tastefully done and the rambling nature of the building gave it a special charm. The meals were outstanding and the service friendly and efficient. We only stayed a night but it also appeared that one could quite easily have stayed for some time and relaxed with plenty to do, if one so...

Just spent two nights here and wished we had two more. This place is a wonderful oasis from a stressful world with excellent food, service and grounds. The staff are outstanding and nothing is too much trouble. This hotel provides old fashioned service, locally sourced food and a 'peace' that is difficult to find anywhere nowadays. We will be back.

Ballymaloe is like a home away from home. I love coming down here, it's so simple and unfussed while also being very slick and professional. The staff are the best, always happy to help. The food is to die for, classic country house cooking. Breakfast is a treat everyday. I've been here both with my family and as a couple...

Stayed here for 3 nights for an autumn break this October. Ballymaloe is fairly remote right down south, but easy enough to get to along the country lanes. We received a typically friendly Irish welcome, they even remembered the dogs name! We had 3 dinners at the house and all were very good. Its not gourmet/Michelin stuff at Ballymaloe, but...
