FORBES USA ON BALLILOGUE
Writing for Forbes USA, the travel writer, Everett Potter, said of Ballilogue:
'It reminds me of those hilltop 'borges' or villages you come across in the Tuscan countryside. Except Ballilogue is very much Irish, a gathering of stone barns, farmhouses, cottages and gardens, with the oldest building dating back to pre-famine times'.
ICING ON THE CAKE
Elaine brought together her family for a New Year celebration at Ballilogue over several days and wrote about her experience.
'EXCEPTIONAL & UNIQUE NEW YEAR FAMILY REUNION AT BALLILOGUE'
'Ballilogue is an exceptional, unique and beautiful experience. We spent New Year 2017 celebrating a family reunion at Ballilogue. Three generations, distant and less distant travellers, designers, academics and foodies, all blown away by the style, the comfort, the quality, the food and the natural beauty of the place. From our first email engagement with the Creative team at Ballilogue to the on-site support of Annie, we couldn’t have received better attention. The pre-planning of the catering, the choice and quality of the food, the generosity of the owners with the resources of the houses was the icing on the cake!"

TRULY, A HAVEN!
Janine, her family and friends came together at Ballilogue from Oregan, Cambridge and Derry:
'AN UNFORGETABLE STAY IN THIS HAVEN'
Ballilogue truly is a haven. The rustic but very stylish décor is expertly achieved and the cosy touches and nods to history on tea towels and cushion covers makes for a very immersive experience. The bedrooms are also stunning, each one you wander into feeling better than the last. And we can't forget Mrs Meaney's cottage which was the icing on the cake for the American guests I stayed with. The Ballilogue Creative Team were also extremely friendly and helpful. An unforgettable stay!

BALLILOGUE BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION
Gary and friends used Ballilogue as the stage for her birthday celebrations:
'BLOWN AWAY BY THE BEAUTY, DESIGN & COMFORT OF BALLILOGUE'
I’m writing to say what a wonderful weekend we all had at Ballilogue. Our guests were blown away by the beauty, design and comfort of the place – the houses, gardens and area around Ballilogue are just Ireland at its very best. Everything simple, quality and beautifully put together.
More importantly, you all made the weekend run very smoothly for us – beautiful food and wines. The careful planning leading up to the event and the warm hospitality while we were there were greatly appreciated and remarked upon by everyone. You all made us feel very welcome and took away the burden of having to do anything ourselves! I hope that the business goes from strength to strength – it deserves to!
