“Perfect! Short or long stay.”
Reviewed April 16, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

This farm house provides the quintessential Irish experience. We've spent many years visiting the area and can recommend the property and the location. We had three weeks at Ballagh Court sight unseen and will definitely return.

Ballagh Court is all the things claimed in the description plus what the other reviews have mentioned (read the long one from 2012). Richard and Salvia are lovely, they made our stay quite special, a roaring fire on our return from a weekend in Cork and a visit from the Easter Bunny! You don't get any better than that!

The countryside is beautiful yet everything is in easy reach. Adamstown is a few minutes drive and has a shop with almost anything you could need. The pub is worth a visit to get a feel for the locals. Clonroche is just as close, Jackie Green's is great for any outdoor gear you may need or anything else you have forgotten, it brings new meaning to the word Wellies! Richard can provide recommendations for restaurants etc that are nearby.

An earlier review pointed out that on the map everything looks far away, but this is Ireland, nothing is far, the drive from Dublin is easy and well under 2 hrs. Wexford town is only 20 minutes from Ballagh Court, the other large towns of New Ross and Eniscorthy are closer.

At Ballagh Court everything you need is provided without fuss or interference. We travelled with a 2 year old and 11 year old who loved the house and the farm animals.

Definitely somewhere to return to :-)

“Outstanding Self Catering Cottage Experience”
Reviewed May 9, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

people found this review helpful

Our first five nights (of 15) in Ireland were at the Ballagh Court Cottages. We had unit #1, which had two bedrooms upstairs, along with two full baths. On the lower/ground level there was a large kitchen with dining area and the living room (with wood stove).

The cottage, including the bedrooms were very spacious and comfortable. The kitchen was fully equipped leaving nothing to need for a self-catering stay. Other than our first night in the cottage, we had all meals here during our time in County Wexford.

The location was perfect given the places we wanted to see and explore from here. Richard was also very helpful in making recommendations, including where we should dine our first night.

It bears noting that the cottage is about 165km from the Dublin Airport, but is easily reached after an overnight flight and early (8am) arrival into Dublin. We even took in Glendalough on the way.

We booked through ImagineIreland.com. After making our booking, I did note that Richard accepts direct bookings too. You may want to go that route instead of having to pay a commission to the booking agency. (http://www.ballaghcourt.com/)

If we are ever fortunate enough to return to Ireland, Ballagh Court will be on our itinerary and I will book directly with Richard.

“Ballagh Court Cottage # 1”
Reviewed April 13, 2012 for a stay in March 2012

A great rural retreat in an authentic cottage with all the conveniences and facilities you could want. We really enjoyed our weekend in Ballagh Court which is warm and comfortable and a great base to see the region from or just to hideaway. Richard and Salvia the owners are welcoming and friendly and if your into farmyard animals you wont be dissapointed or put off. A great stay. George, Dublin
