We stayed in Ballinwillin House for one night after attending a family wedding nearby. There were eight of us, comprising four couples. My wife and I were in the main house and the other three couples stayed in the lovely annex. The rooms were well appointed and spacious with good bathrooms, comfortable beds and all toiletries and towelling that one should expect.
Access to the property was through an electronically operated gate which led to an avenue along a field containing beautiful deer grazing. This was a stunning introduction to the house.
The real joy, though, was next morning at breakfast. We ate in the kitchen and all of us were accommodated at a single long table. Pat and Miriam, our hosts, were there to greet us as we arrived. They were very engaging... both interesting and interested. We learned how they had come to purchase the house and had renovated and updated it. They farm their own deer and wild boar. We were served a variety of cereals, fruits and homemade breads along with copious cups of tea and coffee. The best, though, was the breakfast fry that included everything one could expect, and more. As well as mushrooms, eggs, tomatoes, rashers and black and white pudding we were offered venison and wild boar sausages produced from Pat and Miriam's own livestock. They were simply delicious.
This was a really lovely experience, at a very reasonable price, and I highly recommend it.
