We spent 3 nights here, my wife booking online because Ballyduff house was ideally located and reasonably priced. The venue certainly exceeded our expectations, from the moment we drove through the gates along the beautiful approach to the house on its well maintained drive. Ballyduff House is a 250 year old mansion set in a 300 acre estate and is a wonderfully grand and comfortable place to stay. Our bedroom was gigantic as was the bathroom with a modern, walk in shower. Resplendent with family paintings and period furniture with a beautiful breakfast room and library looking over the river. We were immersed in the history of the place. Everything was very clean and well maintained. The owner, Breda Thomas is a lovely, tireless host who was very attentive to our requirements and went out of her way to make our stay comfortable. When we return to this part of the world, we wouldn’t contemplate staying anywhere else!

We stayed for one night in Ballyduff House, Thomastown, Co Kilkenny - the only downside was that we should have stayed for longer! Four poster beds, pure wool carpets, freestanding claw feet baths, A library with an actual secret door (only ever saw this on TV), fresh raspberries and a full Irish Breakfast with croissants just out of the oven and as much tea or coffee as you like... the prices were incredible - just €120 for a room with bed and breakfast! Ring Brid directly to book a room to escape to the country. Star gazing, bird song, walled garden, foxes, river walks - Guaranteed to make you want to return...

Room tip: All rooms are different, all equally charming

I booked 2 rooms back in May over the phone with the owner. I emailed that day to confirm and asked if they could confirm in writing too; I had seen reviews from 2018 advising they had turned up and there was no record of their booking so was slightly anxious the same would happen. Well when I phoned on the day of arrival, I was advised there was no record of the booking. The woman I spoke to was standing in while the owner was out. I requested they make alternative arrangements and they did. Very disappointing but not surprising. I would recommend confirming several times before you arrive!

We had an outstanding stay at ballyduff house. The property is amazing as well as the hospitality. Brede was a wonderful host and her breakfasts were the perfect start to our day. I wish we could have stayed more than two nights.
