SUSTAINABLE LIVING AT IRELAND'S BALLILOGUE

April 9, 2019

IRISH TRADITION

The cluster of stone buildings that make up the Hamlet at Ballilogue have stood for over 200 years and in the case of Mrs. Meaney’s Cottage for far longer, dating back to pre-famine times. 

 LIGHT FILLED MODERN IRISH INTERIORS 

Today the interiors are modern and light filled. Contemporary spaces with art and craft by renowned Irish makers as well as luxury and comfort in the beds and soft furnishings.

 

FOOTPRINT AND SUSTAINABILITY 

However, the footprint remains almost as it did 200 years ago and working with the existing footprint and Kilkenny stone linear structures is part of the commitment to sustainability at Ballilogue. Stone absorbs heat in summer and retains heat in winter. The glass introduces light and the blue bangor slates maintain an overall traditional pleasing look.

IRISH NATIVE HEDGEROWS

The planting of orchards, trees and wildflower meadows as well as the maintenance and re- introduction of Irish native hedgerows attract birds, bees and wildlife, adding to the wonderful diversity and abundance in this beautiful part of the Irish countryside in Kilkenny. It is also close to the pretty village of Inistioge on the river Nore.

MODERNIST ARCHITECTURE

The clever architectural combination of living in modernist vaulted spaces with traditional shuttered sash windows and wood burning stoves yet are spaces that open onto decks and atriums which overlook walled gardens all adds to the magic of Ballilogue for a wedding, Irish vacation or family get together and private rental. 

ORGANIC BERRY FRUIT

Figs, berried fruit like gooseberries, blackcurrants and raspberries all thrive as do cosmos, fennel and euphorbia in the gardens at Ballilogue.

IRISH RURAL LEGACY 

A testament to modern sustainable living in the Irish countryside while still preserving and utilising the rural legacy and traditions of those who’ve come before.
