Ballyvolane House was originally a classical Georgian home built in 1728 for a once Lord Chief Justice of Ireland, Sir Richard Pyne, and modified 120 years later in Italianate style. Those seeking excellent Irish Country House cuisine, prepared by a master chef, the sporting catch of a Blackwater Salmon, painting and inspecting the garden(us) or simply the warmth of open log fires will just love Ballyvolane. Everywhere is peaceful and exudes gentleness and tranquility.
There are 6 rooms, all appointed with care and love for their guests. All rooms are bright, with natural light that seeps through the large double sash windows. Magnificent views overlook the formal terraced gardens to the South and to the North, ancient trees, (including a copper beach) parkland, lakes and the distant rolling hills of the Galtee mountains beckon. A great variety of birds, the occassional red squirrel and plenty of other furred and feathered animal life can all be viewed and admired from the comfort of your room.This was one of the highlights of our visit to Ireland this Autumn. We felt very welcomed by the owners, Justin & Jenny Green
