We were staying at the hotel and wandered several times round the gardens. We explored the walled garden and examined various plants, herbs, flowers and trees. The gardens to he hotel ave the prettiest walk through the woodland, it was masses with white bluebells and wild garlic. The lake was peaceful and there were 4 rescue swans looking serenely unreal. We particularly loved the camellia bushes/trees, large mature plantings.

On a recent visit to the area, we took the opportunity to visit the Ballymaloe shop and cafe near Shanagarry, we were disappointed with the cafe element. The seating area is small and cramped, there was very little choice on offer and poorly presented in a haphazard way. We called in around the 3.30 mark hoping for a good selection of teas/coffees with scones/cake but settled for a plain teas and brown bread, which was delicious but we were disspointed there wasnt a greater choice of cakes, pastries or desserts. The shop has a wide range of cookery and bakery related items including books, trays, ingredients and utensils etc.
Would be slow to return to the cafe however... disppointing overall..

Fruit trees, loved watching the chickens., and I even got to take part in the afternoon cooking demonstration. Lunch with the students there was fun.

Lovely spot for Sunday lunch - stroll around the shop and a light lunch in the cafe - salads, sandwiches, fresh cakes, tea/coffee and quite reasonable too.
