This was the nicest place we have ever stayed in. It is a hidden magical experience and surpassed our expectations. We arrived to the warm fires of the 300 year country house to be greeted with fresh coffee and warm fires. Breda gave us the freedom to explore the house and grounds. She picked me up from the train in Thomastown so that I wouldn't have to wait for the rest of my family who came in the opposite direction. We booked one family room and it was truely amazing, located in the 750 year old part of the home with wonderful features and beautiful beds and furniture. She even offered an adjoining room for the children (which we were grateful for but didn't take up as there was so much space in our room). The breakfast was fabulous full grill to your choice and lots of fresh organic yogurts. It's a great place to meet other guests and sit around having coffee and relaxing. The kids loved it and were made so so welcome by Breda. they also loved Jack, the well behaved family dog.
An amazing experience, we will be back.
A beautiful room, and a beautiful property that was a joy to stay at. Such a warm hostess, we were made to feel right at home, and all the touches were so personal. Would very highly recommend to anyone wanting a quiet getaway in a beautiful setting!
What a wonderful visit I had to Ballyduff House. If you're looking for absolute peace and quiet and enjoy a country-house atmosphere, Breda Thomas's beautiful place is ideal. I will be sure to return.
We'll not be the first to say Ballyduff is the most glorious place to stay. Bred could not have been kinder; the house could not have been lovelier; its setting could not have been finer; the welcome could not have been warmer. Indeed during our brief stay the only thing obviously missing was *Jack's back leg, and as it turned out he got along just perfectly.
* Jack is the friendliest tripedal dog I have ever met.
Ballyduff House was one of the highlights of our trip to Ireland. Breda is a great host and her staff is very eager to please (more so than the 4 star corporate enterprise we had just come from). Upon arrival, Breda greeted us with coffee and tea, gave us an overview of the area, and then later that night provided a glass of wine, which turned into a couple bottles as we talked politics and technology with an Irish couple late into the night. The breakfast was the best "full Irish" that we had on our trip. If you want to experience Irish hospitality, interact with other guests, and dine/relax in a 300-400 year old setting, I highly recommend Ballyduff House.
This is the ideal location if you want to escape to the country and enjoy warm hospitality. The setting of the house makes it extremely quite and restful. We enjoyed two great nights here, along with substantial breakfasts. Breda is a caring host.
The Ballyduff house was the best airbnb experience I've had! I stumbled upon this listing, looking for something unique to conclude my trip touring around Ireland. The Ballyduff house is GORGEOUS and so worth the extra short drive out of our way.
Breda is a wonderful host, welcoming us with open arms and giving us a quick history of the house and generations who have lived there. The room was amazing, felt like we were living at an old manor home. Everything was clean and well kept.
Breda offered great recommendations on things to do and invited us to enjoy some time in their library by the fire that night. To finish off our stay, we were treated to a wonderful Irish breakfast with service comparable to a restaurant,
I would recommend everyone traveling Ireland who is able to spend at least one night here. Wish I could have stayed longer!
Accueil très chaleureux. Chambres très confortables. Petits déjeuners copieux et de très bonne qualité.
Ballyduff is fantastic as is host Breda. The gardens and grounds are wonderful, and the building provides a great peak into the past. Highly recommended.
Breda is an exceptional host. She went out of her way to make this booking work. Her home is amazing and is the perfect place to stay. Breakfast was exquisite.
