We have just returned to Dublin from a most wonderful weekend in Ballyduff House. We received warm and wonderful hospitality from Breda, fabulous breakfasts and a beautiful bedroom overlooking the river Nore. Ballyduff is just a gem of place tucked away in Co Kilkenny and we will definitely return again the next time we want to be spoiled. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality and kindness, we really enjoyed our time with you.
This was our first night in Ireland. We were exhausted from flying all day and driving on the ‘wrong side’ of the road. The drive up the tree lined country lane to this grand estate was magical! Our room and the hospitality made us feel like royalty.
Wonderful hospitality greeted us as we drove down the tree lined driveway. My daughter & I stayed again with Bred last weekend. She gave us the wonderful room with the four poster bed. The full Irish breakfast was fabulous with fresh raspberries & yoghurt to start. Overlooking the Nore River. We then went to visit Jerpoint Glass & Nicholas Mosse before heading into Kilkenny.
Run by the in-law descendent of the family that has owned this forever, set on undulating meadows with a river flowing below, this is exactly the fantasy one wants on Ireland -- charming, hospitable, homey and elegant all at the same time. Perfect way to relax only a short distance away after a long flight to Dublin
We stayed for two nights in the superb Ballyduff House. Everything was wonderful from the moment we arrived to the minute we left. Breda was extremely warm and welcoming and did everything to ensure our stay was first class. The bedroom was magnificent, the bed immense. The library was lonely to sit in each evening, especially when Breda joined us for a chat. Breakfast was delicious, served in the dining room overlooking the river Nore. We enjoyed exploring the garden and ‘walking the land’, its beauty and tranquillity was super. Thus is defiantly a place we will revisit. Thank you Breda and all the wonderful people we met who made our stay so enjoyable.
