What can we say that has not already been said about this truly amazing place and the staff who run it. We were literally speechless when we arrived at the gates and proceeded to the front door where we were greeted by the staff who welcomed us so warmly. Our room was the epitome of luxury as was the entire... More

When we got engaged in April 2013 I dreamed... More

I am just back from Ballyfin where my sister chose to have her wedding. She couldn't have picked a better or more perfect place. First of all the hotel itself absolutely stunning. I must admit, the very first time we arrived to discuss possibly having the wedding there, I was a bit intimidated. All the staff were standing outside awaiting... More

We have just been fortunate enough to enjoy a 3 night stay at the exquisite Ballyfin. I cannot think of a more beautiful place to spend my birthday. The attention to detail is beyond words. The architecture, furnishings, grounds, lake, staff, food - I could go on for days. We stayed in the very elegant, yet inviting Lady Caroline Coote... More

We stayed at Ballyfin this past weekend and loved the marvellous atmosphere and unique experience. The gardens were extraordinary and we loved biking and carting to discover the forests, fields, and paths; we even saw some wildlife scurrying in the bushes. Service at the property was excellent; staff very attentive and caring. We also hiked in the nearby Sieve Bloom... More

Just spent two nights here in dream land, what a wonderful place. It has all the requirements of a top class hotel but its more than that. You are cared for by people who really do care for the place and you, so in my view that makes it more than a hotel. The staff are skilled and very knowledgable... More

My wife and I had the absolute pleasure of staying at the house for 2 nights on our wedding anniversary. This was our first visit and our expectations were obviously high. From the moment we arrived, greeted by the staff until we left, we were treated like dignitaries. The exclusiveness and uniqueness of Ballyfin cannot be put into words. To... More
