Ballyvolane House Big House Rental

Splendid Isolation

Ballyvolane House is the ideal option for a private rental or an escape to the glorious Cork countryside this summer. Take the house as an exclusive rental to ensure privacy and blissful isolation.

With only 6 bedrooms, Ballyvolane House offers relaxed luxury for a much needed break away with friends and family. We have extra accommodation in the form of Glamping should this be required.

Main House - 6 bedrooms (sleeps 12 plus extra fold-away beds for children if needed)

Glamping Ark and Bell Tents - available as extra accommodation for larger groups.

Your Home from Home

Many of you would have been eagerly anticipating a villa holiday in a sunny part of Europe, however why not you treat yourselves to a get away in this beautiful part of Co. Cork. Delicious country house food (click here to view the recent Irish Times Restaurant Review by Catherine Cleary) featuring home grown vegetables, animals to feed (for those who want to help out!), discreet and professional service tailored to your needs. Children and pets are welcome too.

Denis is a menace with his anyone for tennis

Lots to do both onsite and in the local area. For the active, there is a hard tennis court, badminton, a 7-aside soccer pitch, croquet, lakes for canoeing and swimming, clay pigeon shooting, jogging routes and magical woodland walks. The gardens at Ballyvolane House are glorious and we are always looking for help with the weeding!! For the more sedentary, we have sun-loungers and deckchairs in the gardens, a large TV in the drawing room which is perfect for watching Netflix or curl up by the fire with a good book. Nearby the beautiful Blackwater valley, with its many gardens and historic sites are well worth visiting. Visit pristine sandy beaches on the East Cork and West Waterford coastline, canoe along local rivers, cast a fly for wild salmon on the river Blackwater, shop at our vibrant local farmers’ markets and much more besides are all easily accessible from Ballyvolane House. Kinsale, Ardmore and Ballycotton are all fun day trips too.

Exclusive Hire of the house for a short break (3 nights minimum), or for the week, on a B & B basis is available this summer. We can dial up or dial down the level of service and guest contact as desired.
