Spendid Ballyfin is one of Ireland’s finest country houses, now restored to elegant and graceful life, and reopened as a luxurious hotel. The beauty of the great house and its spacious demesne and lake, and the stratospheric standards of hospitality here, makes this hotel a truly remarkable place.
Imagine a beautiful 600-acre walled estate of woods, hills and water in the heart of Ireland – with the neoclassical Ballyfin lying at its heart. Privacy is the rule: no part of the estate is open to the public, and the secluded surroundings encourage relaxation. However, Ballyfin is not isolated: the closest railway station is five miles (9km) away in Portlaoise; Dublin city and airport are 60 miles (100 km) distant. Transport can be arranged.
