This really is a beautiful spot, myself and my girlfriend returned from a fantastic night feeling genuinely rested. The food was exquisite with much of the produce coming from the farm itself and the breakfast was one of the best that we've ever had. We'll be back again soon I hope.

I was taken here as a present by my girlfriend, who had booked the Midleton experience. We stayed just the Saturday night and had a Midleton Whiskey on arrival, a sumptuous 5 course dinner, a fabulous breakfast and a Jameson Distillery tour on the Sunday. It was all excellent and the staff ensured a very relaxed stay. We had one...

This was the third time I've stayed at Ballymaloe House. It's reassuring to return to a hotel and find that it is just as much a treat as the times before. The staff are friendly, yet efficient and the ambiance perfect. I stayed here with a small group and each person's reaction was equally positive. The rooms are extremely comfortable...

Stayed for 1 night. Everything was delightful. Superb art scattered around. What a pleasure to have no TV in bedrooms/drawing rooms. Food and service first class. I didn't have time to explore the grounds this time. Quick visit to shop, lovely products and good value. I wasn't asked for a credit card to secure booking, good old fashioned trust prevails.

We stayed here in mid February and really loved it. The rooms were very comfortable and well appointed and the staff were extremely helpful. The house itself is an old Georgian manor built on the ruins of a Norman castle. It's surrounded by lovely gardens although in February bulbs were just peeking out of the ground. Nice walking area.

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.
