We are very proud that we are currently ranked NO.1 in Tripadvisor for our type of accomodation in the Limerick area.

Ballyteigue House in County Limerick is a large 4* country house of great character, built in 1800s as a “hunting lodge”, now beautifully presented making it a perfect, comfortable holiday base for you.

If you are interested in golfing, fishing, hillwalking, cycling, mountain biking, horse-riding or touring this most beautiful and historic part of Ireland you will find no better place.

Ballyteigue House is close to the village of Bruree and is set on a hill, enjoying beautiful sweeping views over the lush Golden Vale countryside, and onto the Ballyhoura hills, and Galtee Mountains.

If you want, you can stay put and just wallow in the rural tranquility, light a roaring fire and settle down with a good book….. but on your doorstep is undoubtedly an area of legend, of folklore, castles, priorys, monastic and prehistoric ruins for you to discover.

If you are looking to discover more of Southwest Ireland, Ballyteigue is a fantastic location with so much within an hours drive in ANY direction

5 stars for Ballyteeigue House!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 7, 2009
  • Stayed: Jun 2009
Ballyteigue House is a beautiful, charming, spacious home away from home! Upon stepping inside, my family and I were amazed by the amount of space we had to spread out and relax. Each room was filled with lovely antique furniture and accessories...you can spend hours just exploring the rooms or reading from the various collections of magazines and books throughout. Outside, there is a peaceful and scenic garden filled with fragrant flowers and shrubs.

The home is only a short drive from the nearby towns of Bruree and Charleville. We found that it made a perfect base for day trips to the Ring of Kerry, Cliffs of Moher and The Burren.

Everything about this house was great. If we are lucky enough to return to Ireland, we will definitely stay in Ballyteigue House again!

I spent a week here with my husband and two friends. I absolutely LOVED IT! It is a great base from which to travel all around south central, and western Ireland. The grounds are lovely, and the house has so much character, history and charm. Not to mention the owners, Margaret and Dick, who are incredible people. They are a fountain of knowledge, and are absolutely delightful people to spend time with and learn from. They were so gracious! Margaret even baked me a cake for my birthday!! Can you imagine? We also were given delicious raisin bread, and delightful homemade apple pie. Now, I don't know that Margaret does that for everyone! So don't hold it against her if she doesn't do it for you! Be advised however, if you neglect to read the fine print, as we did, that you will be charged for heating and electricity, at the end of your stay, based on the metre reading. So be aware of that. Do NOT stay here if you want something sparkling clean and new. This is a 200 year old house that has all the baggage that comes with that, which I found intriguing and wonderful, but which may not be up to the standards of some North Americans. That being said, I would go back there in a heartbeat!
When you have the whole house, you have five bedrooms to choose from. Stay in the yellow one, in the back of the house. It is the most beautiful one, and it has the best views.
