This was a gem of a find, the house and settings are magnificent. The food was delicious and plenty of choice. The ambience was most welcoming and the icing on the cake was most definitely Breeda, she is absolutely fabulous, being a hotelier previously myself I know what it takes to make a successful business and Breeda certainly does that. Loved every minute of my stay, thank you Breeda you are an amazing person xxx

We chose to drive here on the back roads and came across an old cementry, beautiful narrow lanes and then we pull into a long driveway that just took our breath away. The house is beautiful and old. Breeda was such a wonderful host,she hreated us and offered tea in the c drawing room with cake. We wandered the grounds and found some very special places. The room was large with an old 4 poster bed and onsuite. Cooked English Breakfast as well. Highly recommend stoping here. Would of stayed longer if we could.

Upon arrival we were offered tea, coffee and sweet bread. The room was very nice, the land the house sits on is just beautiful! It's like a paradise. Beautiful garden, nice statues, a river runs through the property. The hostess was very friendly, talked to us about the family history and how the B&B came to be. The breakfast was also nice. The internet though, could be improved. You have to be in the hallway to get connected. That's the only complaint we have.

Fabulous old house decorated in an eclectic way full of history and local sports. Hospitality of times past. Large comfy rooms to relax with a billiards table that my son was delighted with. Bedroom was massive and so too with the en suite. Bedclothes high quality. For such a large house and only two rooms occupied it was perfectly heated. Breakfast made to order was so much better than any hotel served in an elegant dining room. Hats off to Breda, and also to welcoming John. Gardens are fabulous. Look no further. Fabulous value. We will be back.

I booked Ballyboy as I was attending a birthday dinner in the Old Convent restaurant and according to trip advisor, Google maps and booking.com this b&b was situated right next door near the town centre.. At only €40 & some decent reviews I was delighted with myself. I drove to clogheen from the waterford side and it was a very dark evening. I would be slightly familiar with clogheen and a few kms from the village I passed an old sign for Ballyboy but presumed it was a sign to state that it was up ahead. Drove to where the sat mac brought me and it slowly dawned on.me that I had in fact passed it earlier on 3kms out. A quick chat with a local confirmed.this. I was livid as I could have just not bothered to stay overnight and just not drank at all. When I got to Ballyboy I told them I had only booked due to the location advertised and was told yes they sometimes do that. I asked was there a taxi service in the village (there was but it would be coming from Cahir and possibly cist me a fortune) but in fairness to John and Breda they offered to take me in and collect me again afterwards. The room was lovely, warm.and cosy and the breakfast was fab. Ballyboy is a charming place and if you want a walking weekend in the nearby mountains it's a perfect base to start from
