Having read some of the less than complimentary reviews I just had to address the balance.
We have stayed at Ballymaloe twice a year for the past four years and a couple of times before then. It is our most favourite hotel - not because it is five star, super luxurious, but simply because, unlike any other hotel we have ever stayed in, by the time you leave you feel utterly relaxed and refreshed.
Th whole ethos of Ballymaloe is to allow people to just be - as soon as you arrive you are enveloped by a sense of peace and relaxation. Rooms and public spaces aren't super smart but they are welcoming, comfortable and relaxing. The food is delicious home cooking at it's very best using the freshest of ingredients.
I agree that you need to chose your room carefully, but when you book the staff take endless time and trouble to make sure that you get a room that is most suitable for you.
Hazel, Rory and their team couldn't do more to make you welcome and to ensure that your stay is as perfect as possible.
Our next visit is already booked and I know that as soon as we check out we will be looking at our diaries to plan another stay.
