“A very genuine and authentic experience” is how Joe McNamee summed up a trip to the beautiful Ballyfin. Those descriptions are important, because it would have been very easy for Ballyfin to have targeted itself at the super-luxury class of traveller, and to have removed any of the low-key charm that characterises Irish hospitality. But they haven’t done that and so, what you get here at Ballyfin – along with a restoration achievement to marvel at and a level of luxury that is genuinely deluxe – is an authentic experience and genuine hospitality in one of the country’s most beautiful grand houses.
