One of Ireland’s finest country houses

Ballyfin is one of Ireland’s finest country houses, restored back to life with remarkable grace as a luxurious retreat. This beautiful house is surrounded by 600 acre walled demesne of woods, hills and water.  With only 20 bedrooms, warm intimacy prevails, and service levels are exceptional. Outdoor pursuits include archery, shooting, walking and cycling paths, boating, coarse fishing, tennis and croquet. The exceptionally talented Executive Chef Sam Moody is inspired by huge walled garden providing a rich variety of fresh vegetables, herbs and fruit and meat including exceptional local free range Shellumsrath duck and native Dexter beef.
