Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Guest house had everything we needed. Very comfortable and immaculately kept. All the rooms were big so we had plenty of room to relax. The wood burning stove was a big hit---enjoyed it very much. Each bedroom had its own bathroom --- a nice perk that we've never had before in a rental. As a traveler from the US, we appreciated having a hair dryer there! Owners Mary and John were so helpful in showing us around the place and answering questions. Our house was next to a farm so we were able to watch the cows in the pasture. It was so peaceful! There was also an adjoining trail through the woods which was beautiful. I think the thing that struck me the most was the sheer tranquility. It was so quiet. As my daughter said, "You don't hear any man-made sounds. Only nature." I wish I were still there...

absolutely magical.

  • 5 of 5

On arrival we were met by John who provided us with such a lovely warm welcome and advised us of all the activities in the area.

The lodges blew us away. They were of such a high standard and you could easily stay a week without leaving them (except to get supplies)

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the lodges to anybody and look forward to the opportunity to return there once more.absolutely magical. You WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.!!!!!!

Perfect breakaway

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends stayed at Ballyhoura holiday homes at the August bank holiday this year. We had a great weekend away. The property is well maintained and was very clean on arrival. After getting the grand tour and the do's and don'ts from Mary we were able to just get on and enjoy the weekend. The house was well stocked with maps/walks and brochures for the area. We used these to go for a hike on one day and then went to the mountainbiking course for the second afternoon. The house was well equiped for all our needs, the only thing I could suggest is to have some outside furniture to sit/eat out if the weather is nice. I would have no problem recommending the house to anyone, perfect for families or groups of friends.

Beautiful homes in fab forest setting

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Ballyhoura in mid Oct and had a lovely time. The cottages were very nicely decorated, spacious and well equipped. The stove made it lovely and cosy. My husband and his friend found the mountain biking exhilarating and myself and my friend enjoyed a lovely walk in beautiful surroundings.
