House Parties & Special Occasions

Exclusive Private Hire

Ballyvolane is a magical setting for a country house party. Why not catch up with a bunch of old friends for a few nights of fun, delicious food & drink in a glorious country house. Barefoot or ball gowns – make the party as relaxed or as formal as you like – as an exclusive private house rental, you’ll have the entire place to yourselves. Enjoy delicious food matched by an exceptional wine list around a huge antique polished mahogany dining table laid with old silver, candles and a log fire.

Just kick back, lie in or cast a fly

During the day, sleep (breakfast till noon), cast a fly on the river Blackwater (in season) or on Ballyvolane’s own trout lakes (all year), stroll around the wooded demesne and through 15 acres of beautifully manicured gardens or visit an abundance of great shopping, sporting and heritage spots nearby.

Enjoying drinks by the fire in the drawing room

Before dinner, gather for cocktails by the fire. The food is straightforward country house in style, and the menus vary with seasonal, weather & fishing conditions. Our ingredients are mainly organic and much use is made of our walled garden during the growing season.

After dinner, chat, play cards, board games or sing - we can arrange for a pianist to come and play (song sheets provided). We serve breakfast until noon every day too so you can enjoy a well deserved lie in.

A short hop from Cork Airport

Located only 30 minutes drive north of Cork City and 3 hours drive from Dublin, Ballyvolane is highly accessible but still feels wonderfully remote. Cork airport is only 35 minutes away and has flights coming in daily from many parts of the UK and Europe. Ballyvolane House is a truly unique venue for your special event or memorable occasion, and offers terrific value for money.

If you are interested in having a family reunion or are looking for somewhere to celebrate a special occassion such as landmark birthdays, homecomings, anniversaries, then a House party evening or weekend at Ballyvolane House is just the answer. Please phone us on 025 36349 or email us for a tailor-made quotation.
