Sycamore house was the location we chose for our family reunion, some of who now live as far afield as Sydney, US, Berlin and various spots around Ireland. As a native Irish person I can certainly vouch for Ballyvaughan's beauty and authenticity. We all agreed that it is a magical place that really grows on you with each day. The village and indeed the area are remarkably lively in terms of culture, music, markets, good food, fishing, outdoor sports, arts, you name it. And what better place to enjoy it all from than a skip along the shore and down the pier to the peaceful, private and spacious retreat of Sycamore house. The house is beautifully appointed and well equipped and has wonderful views down to the shore and out on to the pier. In true Irish fashion Seamus and Mary were wonderfully warm and generous hosts and provided us with a wealth of information about the area. Thank you for making our stay most memorable and special. We look forward to coming back!
