"Amazing House"

We had a fantastic break away at Ballycumber House for a group of 10 adults, 4 children & 2 babies. The kids had a ball playing in the huge gardens & in the well stocked playground. The adults enjoyed the sun terrace & the folly. We explored nearby Birr Castle, Lough Boora Park & Glenbarrow Waterfalls. I can’t recommend the house highly enough, Connie was so kind & welcomed us with freshly baked scones.

Perfect base for touring Ireland

Two families, one week, perfect. Easy access to highways, convenient pub and store walking distance.

Host is a gem..........for a larger group this works fantastic.

The history and surroundings will be a pleasant surprise.

"Beautiful, One of a Kind experience, in Period Mansion"

We were so excited to find The Ballycumber House available to rent for holiday. I love older homes and manors and the history and stories that come with them. Ballycumber is beautiful inside and out. It catches your heart, from your first glimpse coming up the driveway, no where else compares, especially when your teenagers say, "we get to stay here, all to ourselves?" For a moment we stepped back in time and it was amazing. Ms. Connie is a beautiful soul and she shared her home and memories with us. There is a library full of books to keep you intrigued for hours, there is even one with information on Ballycumber itself. The girls loved the donkeys and the game room in the basement that was originally part of the castle in the 1600s. The river behind the house was beautiful to look at as well as the very old stone Gazebo on the hill which you can read about in one of the books in the library. The beds were very comfortable and rooms very cozy. There is plenty of room for all. The kitchen was perfect and next to it was a laundry with washer and dryer. Thank you Ms. Connie, for everything, I love Ballycumber and it will always have a special place in my heart. Your friends from Kentucky United States of America......The Smiths
