Ballyvolane House

Originally built in 1728, Ballyvolane was remodelled 120 years later in Italianate style. Surrounded by woodlands, with formal terraced gardens and recently restored trout lakes, the house has a charming, peaceful atmosphere. A fine pillared hall features a Bluthner baby grand piano.

Ballyvolane has private salmon fishing on 13km of the renowned River Blackwater, with a wide variety of spring and summer beats. The beautiful Blackwater Valley, with its many gardens and historic sites, is well worth touring. The heritage town of Lismore, Blarney and Bunratty Castles, the Rock of Cashel, the Ring of Kerry, Fota Wildlife Park and Waterford Crystal can all be visited easily from Ballyvolane. Sea fishing, beaches, riding, tennis, hill-walking and 16 golf courses are all within a 45km drive.
