We stayed in Ballyduff House the first night on our recent trip to Ireland. Our flight was delayed arriving in Dublin and although we had planned a stop before checking in, we were too worn out so we went straight to the house. Bred greeted us with coffee, tea and cookies in the beautiful library room. What a wonderful arrival! We had wonderful conversation with her before heading out for dinner. The next morning we enjoyed a full Irish breakfast. Such a gracious host! Only wish I would have planned two nights to enjoy the area and property more.
If you want to stay in a genuine Irish Country House and experience all it has to offer, Ballyduff House is the one to head for. We were at a wedding in Mount Juliet for two days and chose to stay in Ballyduff House instead. What a beautiful old building - full of character and history. Your hostess, Breda, couldn't be more welcoming. A tray of tea/coffee on arrival and the best full Irish we've ever had. We had the rooms overlooking the river but I'd say they are all beautiful. Great beds and total tranquillity. Great location to see Kilkenny, Jerpoint Abbey and the surroundings. Couldn't recommend it more highly. We'll be back!
We had a lovely stay at Ballyduff. The property is beautiful, filled with character, and Bred was the perfect host. The rooms were warm and handsome, the beds beautifully made and the Irish breakfast is not to be missed. All round, a wonderful stay!
I chose this place primarily because I saw in the photos that it was located along a river. When I arrived I was a little taken aback at how stately and beautiful it was. It's like something out of a Jane Austen novel. It's located several minutes' drive from nearby Thomastown. Tucked away at the end of a long drive, there's no need for keys. Ms. Thomas just told me to come and go as I pleased. When I asked what time breakfast was, she asked me what time I wanted it. The room was large and with the most comfortable bed I slept in during my whole trip. No TV but then that would have ruined the ambiance of the place. Wi-Fi was plenty good, though. When it came time to set out, Ms. Thomas gave me a great suggestion for a hike. Very reasonably priced for what you get. If you…
Stayed last night in this stunning house with my sister. Couldn't fault a thing. We received a lovely warm welcome on a horrible wet evening. The room was stunning, spotless, comfortable and unique. Breakfast didn't didn't disappoint either - fresh fruit, full Irish - delicious. Really hope to return sometime. Very enjoyable stay and excellent value for money.
