A great venue for a wedding and the perfect spot for a country break. We were fortunate enough to have our wedding reception at Balyvolane House and the extraordinarily high quality of the food, even when serving a large group, is matched by the friendliness and professionalism of the owners Justin and Jenny and their staff. The house has a...

I recently attended a wedding here and have to say I was very impressed. I thought the whole reception was pure class from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. We were lucky in that we had fine weather which allowed us to loiter in the gardens while enjoying the drinks reception and also the cutting of the...

Dear Kavo85, Thank you very much for your review and I am delighted you enjoyed the wedding here at Ballyvolane House. Thank you very much for your comments concerning the accommodation nearby. We always strongly emphasize to our wedding couples that they should have everyone staying in one hotel or one town nearby as it is much easier ferrying everyone...

While the bedroom pictures looked great (we later were given a tour and indeed they are-- surprisingly "plush"), we were curious about Ballyvolane's "glamping" (Glamorous Camping) option. Our family of four (parents and late teens kids) decided to give it a go and rent a tent for 2 nights midweek in June and draw on the house's assets, whatever they...

We have stayed at Ballyvolane House on several occasions and would highly recommend it. Even though it is not a Spa retreat, you will come away feeling detoxed and relaxed, ready to face the world again.

Impressive Georgian House with gardens and grounds big enough for a nice walk - a dog will keep you company. The house has ten guest rooms but retains a family feel and Justin and Jenny are charming hosts. Dinner with other guests in the dining room was delicious with excellent service. Our bedroom was fairly spacious and comfortable with a...

The house is beautiful, service is very professional, food is delicious. Perfect place for any type of holidays. Wine list is impressive. Our 10 years old daughter had good time playing in the gardens and helping Justin to feed pigs and collect eggs. We would definitely return and will recommend it to our friends.

This is the real deal, staying in a characterful, comfortable country house with charming hosts ready to see to your every whim!
