Busy lives with friends and families often living in different parts of the world makes the opportunity of a vacation spent together irresistible. It may be a week, occasionally longer but the idea of all being together in one place, Ireland for example, sharing activities, cooking and dining together, spending time talking, playing and laughing becomes something truly special indeed. We see this at Ballilogue, the 11 bedroom, exclusive and award-winning private rental in the Irish countryside.
So many families and friends want something special, private and apart, not a hotel but with the luxury and comfort of home combined with the traditions of a true Irish experience. Nestled in the Kilkenny countryside, yet less than two hours from Dublin or Shannon airports Ballilogue provides just that! As one group from Martha's Vineyard in the United States said in a review of a recent stay...'Absolutely perfect in every respect with three elegantly furnished and designed houses which made it possible for us to have common space and privacy all at the same time.'
Set within orchards and walled gardens, the series of Irish stone barns, dairies and farmhouses provide an oasis of calm with light filled interior spaces. Three seperate houses with bedrooms, bathrooms, living spaces and glass atrium mean that there is ample room for solitude as well as coming together in the Old Dairy to share meals or private dining from the best of local farm and Atlantic bounty. A recent review from a group of 20 friends called Ballilogue........'An Amazing Property, its the best place I've ever stayed!'
Ballilogue is at the centre of Ireland's ancient east, the coast and Wild Atlantic Way is close by as are the attractions of Waterford, Kilkenny and Wexford with their walks, restaurants, castles and crystal. Inistioge is the local village, one of the prettiest in Ireland, on the river Nore with it's friendly pubs and Woodstock Estate as noted recently by Cara, the Aer Lingus magazine. Transport, private dining, guided activities are all provided at Ballilogue to groups of friends or family visiting.
How wonderful to arrive, unpack and have the architect designed Ballilogue series of restored stone buildings as your home from home, a secluded Irish hamlet to rest, relax and explore all that the southern part of Ireland has to offer. Our Four Days In Ireland suggests some of those places to explore, each a treasure filled day from the Dunbrody Famine Experience to kissing the Blarney Stone!
