Official tourism website for Cork, Ireland

An historic Irish country house of extraordinary warmth, style and comfort that provides luxury accommodation and salmon fishing on the river Blackwater, located in the North Cork countryside. Ballyvolane was originally a classical Georgian home built in 1728 for a once Lord Chief Justice of Ireland, Sir Richard Pyne, and modified 120 years later in Italianate style.

Should you be seeking the very best of Irish country house cuisine, the sporting catch of a Blackwater Salmon, a chest of buried treasure or simply the warmth of open log fires in the comfort and luxury of Irish country living then look no further than Ballyvolane House, an award-winning Irish country house and a founding member of the Hidden Ireland.

Informal and relaxed, the offering each night is a 4-course set menu. Needless to say, we cater for all special dietary requirements. Communal dining or separate – dinner is generally taken 'house-party style' with the other guests around the main dining table. There are a couple of separate tables in the dining room should you wish to dine away from the main group. In any event, dinner at Ballyvolane is an integral part of the Ballyvolane experience and a ritual not to be missed.
