At Ballilogue we've learnt from our visitors over the years what for them makes a vacation or celebration with a group of friends or family extra special.
Tip1: Private Luxury Rental
Find a great private luxury rental so that's its your home from home or base in Ireland. Guests love the fact that they are not constantly packing and unpacking, that they have a series of houses at Ballilogue so they have separate private time as well as great social times together in the Old Dairy dining hall, museum, Shed Bar and design shop around the Central courtyard.
Tip 2: Comfort and Sleep.
Comfort and sleep are key. After all it's time to chill, relax and explore. At Ballilogue be-spoke beds, Egyptian cotton bedlinen and Voya organic toiletries are basics for special times away as well as Irish hand loomed throws, books and wood burning stoves plus the wild flower gardens and bohreens to walk and wander in.
Tip 3: Architecture and Irish Tradition.
Staying somewhere that's inspiring with a real sense of Irish tradition too. At Ballilogue the restoration of the Hamlet has taken 20 years. Retaining the Kilkenny stone exteriors but then opening onto light filled modernist interiors from glass atrium in walled gardens to elevated soaring double height living spaces. Architectural delights in the beautiful Irish countryside.
Tip 4: Irish Vacation and Celebration.
The road less travelled really applies to an Irish vacation or celebration. Seeing Ireland and exploring without constantly being on the go. It's why Ballilogue and Ireland's South East is so great. Less than 2 hours from Dublin airport with a wealth of beauty, charming towns and villages, places to walk, hike and sights to see. Wonderful pubs and restaurants too.
Tip 5: Four Perfect Days in Ireland.
Enjoy being spoilt!
-A driver for day trips to Kilkenny, Waterford, Cork and Wexford to see castles, butter markets, crystal and even Opera.
-Catered dinners at Ballilogue with cocktails and traditional Irish music in Mrs Meaney's Cottage Museum. Sing along, dance or tell stories. The choice is yours, it's your private place.
-Guided hikes across the hills, along the valleys and river towpaths, through stately gardens, abbeys and pints in great Irish pubs for chats and laughter along the way.
-Resting, relaxing and enjoying birdsong and yoga as well as treatments in the comfort of the Ballilogue Hamlet.
