We booked one night on our way from Dublin to Cork. It's located in a very lovely part of the country- the Glen of Aherlow. It's a well-established family run country hotel. Hospitality is superb. Ruth and 'grandma' were wonderful hostesses- catering for all requests and dietary requirements. Shortly after we arrived, we were greeted with lovely cup of tea... More

We spent 3 nights, June 23,24,25 and it was excellent. Ruth and her family were great hosts and we had a great time staying with them. The house is beautiful and the rooms had that charm that separates it from the standard hotel rooms. We spent a bit of time at the forge, which is the bar and where our... More

We ate in the restaurant over the weekend and what a fabulous experience it was !! The food was of exceptional quality and presented beautifully. The waitress was most attentive, nothing seemed too much trouble, Fantastic value for money and a drink in "The Forge" in the grounds to finish off the evening just made it for us, well worth...

The location was great for us. The rooms were very small and the place is not updated. The bathrooms were tiny but that's to be expected. Besides all that (which didn't concern any of us) the people were great, the food was great and the pub was super cool.

Ballyglass Country House has been one of our favorite places in Ireland. The beautiful 1700's country home is impeccably kept by the Byrne family. The Byrne's daughter Ruth and her husband Liam welcomed us with coffee and tea in their beautiful lounge. Ruth was incredibly helpful in providing us information about the nearby trails in Glen of Aherlow, as well... More
