We discovered Ballyduff House upon planning our first trip to Ireland. Bred made us feel at home instantly and we feel we've become fast friends. The home and grounds were beautiful, not to mention the charm of the farm animals. The breakfasts were amazing, the room (and even the bed) was extremely comfortable, and Bred was the ultimately hostess while making us feel like family. Our favorite time spent was sharing a bottle of red wine with her by the fire in the library. We will certainly be making a return visit!
