The wife and I returned to Ballyvolane for a night's stay at the end of August. The place was just as amazing as we had remembered. We enjoyed strolling around the grounds, chatting to other guests, hanging out with the dogs and relaxing in our room. The food was amazing (as expected) - a full five-course meal which we enjoyed...

We couldn't have selected a more perfect place to spend our first night on the Emerald Isle than the Ballyvolane House. The friendly people -- both staff and other travelers -- and wagging tails (the four house dogs) made for a truly warm and memorable first evening in Ireland! We especially enjoyed the lively conversation with other guests during dinner...

We enjoyed the formal dinner served in the traditional dining room as a fun way to meet other guests and enjoy a unique experience. The property has plenty of character and patina...

This place is a little slice is heaven. We stayed in the glamping arc which was so incredibly comfortable and v cosy at night with candles lit and hot water bottles in the beds. The shower and toilet blocks were spotlessly clean and well appointed with towels, hairdryers and voya toiletries. The food was super and mostly locally produced and...
