FOUR PERFECT DAYS IN IRELAND
Big birthdays and anniversaries are a great time to bring friends and family together combining an Irish break with a celebration and jaunt through the Irish countryside exploring castles, towns, villages, pubs and historical sights. Four Perfect Days in Ireland is a good start to planning this journey.
IRELAND'S ANCIENT EAST
Close to Dublin, less than two hours to the south, is Ireland's Ancient East stretching from Carlow through Kilkenny to Wexford and Waterford to the South. Home to the Butler stronghold of Kilkenny Castle, Jerpoint and Duiske Abbeys and the wonderful walkways and towpaths of the rivers Nore and Barrow.
Festivals celebrating Art, Music, Film and Craft at Kilkenny, Waterford, Wexford and Carlow.
BOUTIQUE IRISH LIVING AT BALLILOGUE
Stay in the centre of this Irish fusion of history, tradition and natural beauty close to the pretty village of Inistioge. Ballilogue is a private, village-like Hamlet with 11 bedrooms, catering to 22 people sharing. It's boutique Irish living at it's best and available to rent exclusively for two days or more. The perfect base to celebrate, relax and explore!
IRISH DESIGN & ARCHITECTURE
Just imagine family and friends in a series of architectural modernist stone houses, all light filled and furnished with the best of Irish art, craft, books and objects. Bedrooms with Egyptian cotton bedlinen, robes, fluffy soft towels and organic Irish toiletries. There is even a private Design and Craft Shop on site! A dining Hall, once an Old Dairy, a pre-famine Museum, once the home of the Meaney family, walled gardens and orchards with Wildflowers, herbs and berries.
A FEAST OF FOOD MUSIC & LAUGHTER
For the celebration itself, innovative dishes fresh and delicious served or delivered by the Ballilogue chefs, wonderful wines and champagne from the Ballilogue selection, cocktails from the quirky Shed Bar and music from talented local musicians. Perhaps in the relaxed days and nights at Ballilogue, explore the countryside with guided walks and hikes, take a special tour of the whiskey distillery at Jameson or the Wild Atlantic Coast, Kilkenny city and explore Wexford town.
AN IRISH ADVENTURE
These celebrations are a chance to see friends and family, share time together and laughter too. Memories that are treasured, remembered of an Irish adventure and vacation too.
