Ballyduff House is a classic Georgian country house with a 14th century castle, steeped in Irish history and full of the warmest of welcomes.

The River Nore sparkles as it runs along Ballyduff’s riverbank while sheep and cattle graze the pasture either side.

Open fires, the book lined library and the comfortable bedrooms furnished with Irish antiques capture an early 18th century experience tempered by discreet 21st century comfort.

This is real Ireland – calm, green and beautiful, set alongside the picturesque village of Inistioge with Dublin only an hour away.

Ballyduff House was used as a location for the award winning film Circle of Friends.

Owner Brede Thomas is a wonderfully warm and vivacious host for whom nothing is too much trouble.

A visit to Ballyduff House is an experience to treasure.
