Ballymaloe House is a family-run country house hotel famous for its outstanding hospitality and superb food. The 17th-century house is built onto a castle and nestled on a 300-acre farm in rural East Cork. Ballymaloe House is only 20 miles from the historic city of Cork, and minutes from the breathtaking south coast.
Bedrooms come in all shapes and sizes, from large and airy to cosy, including ground floor rooms in the courtyard. Locally, Ballymaloe House is within easy reach of several championship golf courses, the home of Jameson Whiskey and the Cobh Titanic Experience. Sea and river fishing can be arranged within 5-20 miles. Onsite there is an outdoor, heated pool (for summer use) and an excellent craft and kitchenware shop, café and events centre - The Ballymaloe Grainstore.
Food is largely produced on the home farm and has won high recommendations in all-important food and restaurant guides, including a recent World Restaurant Award.
Babysitting is available. There is also an outdoor children's play area and tennis court on the grounds.
