Ballinkeele House: Wexford

Ballinkeele is your home away from home - a bit grand, but equally as comfortable. This Irish country house was made to entertain and is perfect for vacations, get-togethers, birthdays & anniversaries. It is such a calm welcoming place and there is such a wonderful feeling of peace here. It's packed full of history but so relaxed that it isn't at all stuffy!

Built in the 1840s by your hosts the Maher family, your hosts are the 5th & 6th generation of the original family, so we really care about the old place and love sharing it with people. It has been decorated by us & previous generations in a classic style blending heritage with modern comforts. It's got everything you could need – WiFi throughout, efficient thermostatically-controlled heating, so the house is always warm & cosy. It has a stunning bespoke modern kitchen with every kitchen appliance you could ever need to cook up a storm.

You enter the Front Hall with its original stove and columns which lead you through to the library. The Library is a cosy room lined with books, collected by the Mahers over generations. Settle by the fire here, under the benevolent gaze of John Maher's portrait, and enjoy a good read. There is loads of space for relaxed dining in the kitchen or for more formal occasions, or just putting on the ritz (!), there is the rich red formal dining room which can seat up to 14 around the original mahogany dining table with the lead crystal chandelier sparkling above.

The drawing room also has a Smart TV with cable TV, books, cards, games etc. Sit in the armchairs by the bay window and take in the view or read your favorite book.

You can also venture out the bay window, down the steps out to the garden, there’s a patio with table, chairs, umbrella and BBQ to enjoy with friends and family on sunny days. Follow the paths leading away from the house to explore our rural idyll. Over 200 acres of grounds and farmland, with woodland & forestry, lakes, ponds and walled gardens. You might see our resident buzzards wheeling overhead or pheasants dashing into the rhododendrons for cover.

Upstairs are 7 large bedrooms, 6 with their own private bathrooms. All the beds are either king size or super-king and all are antiques, most original to the house, with bespoke comfortable mattresses and fresh linen. 2 of the rooms have superking beds which can be converted to twin beds - we also have 1 extra bed we can set up for you and have 2 travel cots available, with bedding. Let us know beforehand how you want us to set them up for you. All beds are made up with beautiful linen and there are soft white towels, shampoo, shower gel, hand soap & beach towels for your trip to the beach!

For the little ones we have a high chair and even a few toys & books you can borrow to keep them busy. The laundry room is tucked away in the wing off the grand staircase, with an washer and dryer.

This place is absolutely amazing! It's so beautiful from in- and outside. Beautiful garden with fresh fruits. Laura and Val are excellent hosts that make you feel very welcome. There wasn't anything that we missed or could have asked for more. Thank you for hosting!

Ballinkeele House is absolutely amazing. The photos on the website do not it justice. We had a family weekend to celebrate my parents 50th wedding anniversary and the house was just perfect for us. Plenty of space so we were not on each others toes. The outside play area is a real bonus for the little ones. The gardens are really impressive too, something I was not expecting. We checked in on Friday and did not leave the estate until Sunday.....we had plans to go to the beach and into Enniscorthy but we all chose to stay put in the beautiful house and gardens. I really hope I get to go back there! Would definitely recommend, you won't find anything better than this

Laura and Val are beyond spectacular. The home is magical but what is truly special is their kindness and hospitality. If you book this home it will definitely be one of the top highlights of your trip. Every penny is worth it. This is your home away from home in Wexford County.

One of the nicest houses I have ever stayed in. It was ideal for my friends and I who were looking for a relaxing break in the countryside. Would highly recommend!

Amazing place, the pictures don't do it justice at all. The history was so interesting, and the mansion was decorated with so much care, loved all the little details everywhere. Laura & Val were super nice, prepared everything perfectly and even had stories about the house to tell us. All in all a brilliant place to stay, definitely going there again soon. Thanks to Laura, Val and Redd :) for making this a visit to remember.

From the very first moment when we arrived to the venue and until the very last – everything was just superb. Place itselft went beyond our most wild expectations – you would feel yourself as in XIX century (though, you'll have all the modern appliances, incl wifi). The best airbnb experience by far! Another thing to point out – there's everything you need. Laura and her family thought about every detail in advance. And they are always there to help out. The area is splendid as well. We spend many ours walking in the fields and the forest. So worth spending some time as well. Overall, it's absolutely amazing. Worth visiting, living and enjoying. We'll definitely be back!
