Ballyduff house is an elegant Georgian country house located in County Kilkenny. The River Nore sparkles while it runs along Ballyduff's river banks. With open fires,the book lined library and comfortable bedrooms furnished with Irish antiques.
Our accommodations were simply amazing, I wish we could have had time to explore the grounds and the house. Breda met us in Thomastown and helped us make our way to the house. She is a delight to visit with and made us feel like family. The rooms were very comfortable, exactly as shown in the pictures.
Our stay at the Ballyduff House could not have been more perfect. It was like a dream come true and it definitely made our Ireland vacations more enjoyable.
Breda gave us a very warm welcome with some tea to savour by the fireplace in the amazing living room area rich of history and cozy ambiance. The room was more charming that we could have possibly imagine. We felt like the Royal Family. Once the afternoon tea over, Breada gave us an amazing restaurant recommandation in the village nearby (Thomastown), one of the best food we had in Ireland.
The breakfast was served in an elegant room with portrait of ancestors on the wall. We felt like we where in Downtown Abbey.
This is not to mention how WONDERFUL Breda and her husband are. They make us feel very welcome and good in their little paradise. Our only regret that we have is that we could not have stayed more than one night because we were heading to Dublin the next day.
Thank you vey much Breda for this amazing experience life in this little paradise. We will always remember our stay with you. Wish we could return there soon.
Special mention to Jack the lovely dog of the house :)
Breda was a wonderful host and was very welcoming and friendly. Her house is an amazing place, and our room was extremely well furnished and clean. We had no lack in anything. This was the highlight of our trip to Ireland!
These few words cannnot explay how great was ours experience in breda's house. Beautiful the place, very kind and polite breda. We feel at home and in the same time in a castle. Thanks!
What an amazing experience! I've no words to say how special was our stay in Breda's home. The great communication and willingness to help was clear even before our arrival - I felt like we knew her before arriving in Thomastown.
The rooms are just perfect and the only 'complain' is that the bed is so comfortable that you will probably oversleep :-)
You can feel that they put so much effort and thought into what they do - memorable and unique experiences!
Thank you so much for receiving us - we'll for sure be back!
