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.

Ditto to what everyone else said - this unique Inn is a must-stay. We loved visiting the deer especially! Miriam went out of her way to accommodate our family of five, we are so appreciative! A bonus was the kitchen in the common room where we were happy to make a meal after 2 weeks of travelling and eating in restaurants. Just wonderful!

We only had the one night but we would have loved to have stayed longer.
Miriam and Pat were fantastic hosts this is all you could ever want in accommodation and with first class service. Our room was in the courtyard and very spacious, very clean, and very quiet, we cooked our own meal in the kitchen that has everything you could need.
The breakfast was amazing I have never had venison or wild boar sausages or black and white pudding but it was all wonderful I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Room Tip: The cottage kitchen and dining areas are shared but we didn't see anyone else in there, it felt like we had the place to ourselves.

Wonderful country home accommodation, located just outside Mitchelstown co.cork. Hosts Pat and Miriam couldn't have been more hospitable. Spacious and quiet rooms, delicious breakfast with wild boar sausages and great experience in wine tasting from their own vineyard in Hungary. 2003 cabernet franc as one of my favourites. Definitely worth calling by!

A wonderful place to stay. Amazing food they raise wild boar and venison and serve their own produce for breakfast you couldn't get fresher or more tasty food. The owners are warm and welcoming hosts n make you feel relaxed and at ease.. We will be back for another visit
