I recently stayed in the farmhouse and was pleasantly surprised by the amount of space there was. I was delighted with the spacious enclosed courtyard and games room which my boys loved. It really was very safe for my boys and I could watch them from the windows from every room. Brigid and Dan were great hosts and the house had everything you could possibly need from travel cots and stairs gates to wood for the fire. A real home from home. Wheaten on arrival was a nice touch. Had a lovely visit to the amphitheater close by followed by a visit to Dunmore Caves, Kilkenny Castle and a Kilkenny sight seeing tour. Handy if you can't face trailing the kids around the city! Rathwood in Carlow was a great place to spend the sunday. A wee gem of a place with a 1.5 acre maze of Ireland, forest, fairy garden deer, play parks, garden centre and shops. We did the Alice Out of Wonderland experience and it was great crack. We also visited Castle Comer park. Even though most of the facilities were closed it was a nice dry day and there was enough to keep the boys entertained. Would definitely recommend.
We stayed for a couple of days with our complete family at the Ballykeeffe Farmhouse. The Farmhouse has a lot of space and is located only a few miles outside of Kilkenny.
It is equipped with lovely furniture in farmhouse style and the owners were very supportive and caring. We enjoyed the stay a lot and can fully recommend it to anybody else who might be thinking about staying there.
We stayed for a week at Ballykeeffe farmhouse and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Brigid, Dan and Billy were so accommodating and friendly, and went above and beyond to ensure our stay was a comfortable one. The kids really enjoyed the outside area and visits from Ham the dog. Such a friendly dog, we loved him very much. Thank you for a fabulous stay and would definitely go back.
Very nice place near Killneney! Lot of place in the house and well equiped. Brigid and her husband are very nice host and they always there for you if you need something. I recommand it without hesitation!
Ballykeefe farmhouse is a very nice farm located in a beautiful area in a region where it is good to live. This farm is perfectly located for visiting the beautiful Kilkenny area.
We were very well received by charming owners who own a very charming and welcoming farmhouse.
Coming to Ballykeefe farmhouse you will enjoy the calm and beauty of the Irish countryside as well as the musical evenings in the Kilkenny pub.
What a lovely surprise this farmhouse was. Situated on a working farm and the perfect location to tour the area. It is an immaculate, well equipped and cosy (but large) farmhouse. Loved having a real fire at night. The hosts Brigid and Dan are lovely and made us feel very welcome. The fresh scones were a nice surprise. I would highly recommend Ballykeeffe and would definitely visit again.
We just recently stayed at the Ballykeeffe farmhouse. It was my little family of five, myself, husband, and her three children ages five, nine, and 12. Talk about home away from home, this is by far the best of the best we've ever stayed. It started with our arrival, when Brigid came to meet us. She was so warm and welcoming and she made sure we knew where everything was that we needed during our stay which was fully equipped (there's even a hair dryer with a diffuser!!!! )The refrigerator already had some milk and some butter, and she had made us a fresh loaf of bread. What a special touch. The location is fantastic, just a short drive to Kilkenny and if you don't mind walking, the Ballykeeffe amphitheater is not too far away if you want to see a concert. My kids enjoyed taking advantage of the space in the courtyard and the occasional visit of their dog Ham while they were outside playing. (Best dog ever!!!) Brigid and Dan are so kind and so welcoming and we enjoyed talking with them thoroughly. The only downside is that I wish that we could have stayed longer I would most definitely recommend this location. (My five-year-old daughter actually cried for about a half hour after we left). Thank you for making our time so special. ❤️❤️❤️
