Beautiful farm and grounds with a lovely little cafe to have some lunch. There is a shop there where you can purchase local produce, plenty of cook books and house hold items. Well worth visiting you will not be disappointed.

We had a meal at Ballymaloe house, in a group of 20. Really, one cannot do other than say that Ballymaloe is BEST. There is also a café, where you can have a scrumptious lunch. Ballymaloe is simply the best.

Have an annual treat over the festive season at Ballymaloe and highly recommend to anyone who is yet to experience same for a special occasion! Food is mouth-wateringly good and the festive menu of 7 courses is good value for €70 with plenty of choice and the quaint dessert trolley is a treat not to missed as you can sample... More
