About Ballymaloe House

Ballymaloe House is a family-run country house hotel famous for its outstanding hospitality and superb food. The 17th century Irish Country house is built onto a Norman Castle and nestled in a 300 acre farm in rural East Cork only 35 minutes from the historic city of Cork. Bedrooms come in all shapes and sizes, from large and airy to cosy including ground floor rooms in the courtyard. The principles in which food is prepared at Ballymaloe have not changed since Myrtle Allen opened the dining room to the public in 1964. The chefs at Ballymaloe House prepare and serve the finest and freshest seasonal produce in a simple way. Where possible the menu is written around the produce available from the farm and garden. Ballymaloe also support the vast variety of local East Cork producers and shares the bounty of the nearby Ballymaloe Cookery School's 100 acre organic farm on their menus.
Ballymaloe House has an award winning Irish Crafts gift shop and café onsite - The Ballymaloe Shop & Café. There is also a function space onsite called Ballymaloe Grainstore which hosts a wide variety of music, theatre, art and festival events. This multipurpose function space (only 35 minutes from Cork city) is also available for private hire.
