Had an amazing 4 nights in the lodges. Such a beautiful area, lots of activities to do and just a beautiful setting. Loved the accommodation! Peaceful yet lots to do during the day....mountain walks, bike rides......played golf and chilled out. The owner John was a pure gent...I left a clothing item behind and he sorted it back to me in no time...hugely appreciated. I will be back here for sure!!
The houses are located in a small forest, it’s so nice to be able to walk straight into the woods. There are two safe playgrounds and a basketball hoop onsite. The kitchen is very well knitted out and all the bedrooms are en-suite. It’s a perfect location for a quiet relaxing holiday. There’s plenty of options for days out (within a 30 min drive). We will definitely visit again.
Really enjoyed our time here, location is amazing- the houses are set in beautiful forest environment with a nice playground which the kids enjoyed! Houses are spacious with all mod cons and within driving distance of most sites, would highly recommend checking out the mountain biking in the area. Overall we had a great stay wish this was our own home!!
Stayed there for a week in june. I have been down 7 times. The houses are always presented immaculately. You don’t need to go abroad when you have this resort on our doorsteps. Looking forward to our next trip.great for kids with all the walks and woodlands.

My family, including 3 children stayed at the ballyhoura forest luxury accommodation for 4 nights. We were greeted by Mary on arrival and given clear concise directions on how the house 'worked'. The house was comfortable and clean, but most important, so relaxing in its forest setting. There were 3 different small playgrounds very close to the house to keep the kids occupied during down time. A lovely loop walk from the house around the vicinity, and a great pub just a 5 minute walk away. No shops nearby (nearest about 4 miles away) but once you arrive stocked up its no problem. Couldn't fault the accommodation or our hosts
Ballyhoura Forest Luxury Homes ticks all the right boxes for a great family holiday. So much to do right on your doorstep including mountaing biking at the Ballyhoura MTB trails (less than 10 mins away), horse riding stables and mountain hacks, miles of great hill walking with way marked loops and stunning scenery. There is also a wealth of local heritage to see including lough Gur, an ancient irish settlemrnt that has been inhabitited for more than 6000 years.
With Cork and Limerick Citys accessible for day trips in under an hour it makes the ballyhoura a very central location.
John and Mary are excellent hosts, the accomodation is is beautiful, with everything you would need for your stay including self catering kitchen 3 ensuite double bedrooms, wifi and sky tv. This is our second time to stay here and I'm sure it wont be the last.
