Perfect house for a group of friends or hen party. A group of 25 of us stayed at the end of April 2018 for a hen party and everyone was blown away by the house. It has everything you need between the football pitch and tennis court out the back where we held a school sports day, large kitchen allowed us to easily cater for our big group and the bar and lounge was perfect place to sit and catch up. It's my 3rd time staying in Ballyvara house and can't wait to book my next trip.

"Outstanding in every way!" We recently had the great pleasure of staying in Ballyvara House for 2 nights, which is just not enough! We were a party of 30...15 adults and 15 children ranging from 1 to 11, all family. As we are a large family, with 2 living in america, getting together in one place just doesn't happen unless it's a wedding.....but now we have Ballyvara! It's hard to even verbalise how great this place is, so going to try and breakdown into what for us are important factors... Bedrooms - all 11 are large and en suite, with Queen Beds as standard. We had enough rooms for every family to comfortably fir in their room and then we had some 'sleepover rooms' where the bigger kids got to share, which was a great novelty. Kitchen and dining areas - As expected the commercial kitchen that has everything, heating lamps, bain maries, griddle for eggs and pancakes, numerous fridges, dishwasher, ample plates, cups, cutlery etc., all the basics plus lots more. The highlight of the kitchen for most of us was the Boiling Water Berco (?) ready for tea/coffee instantly! Dining areas were spacious and well laid out, suited our needs perfectly. Lounge and Bar - perfect for gathering, we got the fire going and it felt like home (a LARGE version). There's also an ice machine near the utility if anyone decides to knock up some cocktails...everything is thought of! Pool room - The guys and kids spent a lot of time here, great addition. Outside area - you just couldn't believe all there is for kids here, even though we were there during Storm Doris so kids only got out for short spell one morning, it would be fab if weather had been a little better. Host - Becky was super nice and helpful, she has a good sense of humour and is very relaxed..even when there are kids thundering around her in excitement! Weather - it doesn't matter...and that comes from someone who HATES the rain! I thought the kids would go crazy if they were cooped up for two days, but they had so much space to run around, play Hide and Seek, hang out in the pool room or library, they were begging to stay longer. Overall I couldn't speak highly enough about Ballyvara House, no-one wanted to leave and we would definitely aim to arrange another gathering there. Thank you so much Becky, it was the best!

We've stayed here now three times. It's a great house for large groups. We have 14 adults and 14 children in our group and ballyvara accommodates us very comfortably. Kitchen is very well supplied and sitting room is plenty big whilst still being cosy. Becky is lovely to deal with. I'm sure we'll be back.

Ballyvarra was more than we hoped for! The pictures don't do it justice! We were a family group of over 20 and everybody had a lovely stay with plenty to do for everyone. John was a great help and very courteous, there when we needed him but not intrusive at all. Overall an amazing break, we'll be back for sure.

17 of us were able to fulfill a lifetime dream by making an epic journey to Ireland as a family. Ballyvara House is the perfect location for day trips to enjoy the near by variety of terrains, Cliffs of Moher, the Burren, the Aran Islands, Dingle and even Ring of Kerry and Blarney. We simply didn't have enough time to do it all~ but loved every minute of it. Doolin is a great little town just a walk down the Heritage Trail created along the property and we loved travelling up and down it to hear music on the hills and enjoy amazing sunrise and sunsets as well as a clear view of the water. The house itself is rambling yet cozy~ very soundly made giving all of the rooms privacy yet providing a central area with a fireplace to roast the turf and sing songs and play games ~ while in your own pub. The kids loved playing outside on the fields and courts and playground. So much to do...and in speaking to the local workman who was building a foundation, additional services for banquets will soon be added. The kitchen is massive and very well stocked. The adults loved the proper dining room and we even had happy hour outside on the stone table enjoying the beautiful scenery that surrounded us. Every room had an amazing view. So lucky we found this gem! Thank you!
