I purchased the 2 nights dinner B&B option for my sister for her Birthday. Later I contacted the hotel to advise that I would be joining them with my husband and that we would be a group of 4 . When we arrived my sister and husband were checked into the cottages and we were checking into main house. At...

I have travelled extensively and stayed in some wonderful hotels, this is one of the very best. The service was outstanding, the staff friendly, well-informed and extraordinarily helpful. I cannot praise them enough. The rooms were comfortable and spacious. The restaurant was excellent. Despite the cost we all thought it was good value. We adhered to wine waiter's (sommelier) advice...

Very nice, and most helpful staff. Food was outstanding. Bar was great with many varieties of gin. We loved the breakfasts, porridge was amazing. It is time for rooms to be updated, especially the baths. Common rooms could use a face lift also. Gift shop was very nice. We would definitely go back for food, not sure I would stay...

A special birthday lunch for my husband, and we were not disappointed. This is a typical, old style country house hotel. Yes, maybe a little tired, but still beautiful. The staff made us feel special, from reception to waiting staff at lunch. The food was lovely - sweet trolley divine! A slice of Birthday Cake with a candle for my...

The hotel is first and foremost a foodie destination. The Allen family seems to be everywhere. The rooms are very comfortable and well kept. Gather in the lounge for pre-dinner drinks, and to review the dinner menu and make your choice. The dinner was outstanding and most memorable. The breakfast buffet is good with all sorts of eggs, etc on...

We arrived for lunch at Ballymaloe house last week and were fortunate to have a few minutes to walk the beautiful grounds. Lunch was gorgeous and delicious, and the entire staff at Ballymaloe House could not have been nicer. Because we were attending a class at Ballymaloe Cookery School after lunch, we had asked at reception if they could arrange...

Myself and my husband spent a night here for our first anniversary and it was fabulous from start to finish. The superior room was spacious and had everything we needed. Dinner in the hotel was superb and the highlight was when Darina herself came and spoke to us during our meal. A gorgeous location with beautiful walks
