You will find that our most welcoming home in rural Southwest Ireland is a charming, atmospheric and spacious holiday rental which is ideal for large families or perhaps smaller groups of family or friends to share.

We are very proud that we are currently ranked NO.1 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

Guestbook comments from the owner

In March of 2013, 14 members of my family came here for vacation. The owners of the property were so friendly and accommodating. The property has amazing views and is so charming! Pictures cannot do this house justice! I would recommend this place to any person vacationing in Ireland!

5 stars for Ballyteeigue House!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Une magnifique mise au vert

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons été très bien accueillis dans cette magnifique et spacieuse maison en pleine campagne par Margaret et Dick. Ils habitent une dépendance joliment amenagée dans la cour attenante. Nous avons été reçus de façon très conviviale.

Ballyteigue se situe dans un environnement incroyablement calme. La vue est imprenable sur les paysages verdoyants. Le domaine reste tout de même facilement accessible depuis la route nationale. Nous avons entrepris de nombreuses balades quotidiennes en voiture partir de ce lieu et avons pu accéder sans difficulté aux différents Counties des alentours : Kerry, Limerick, Cork et même Waterford.

La maison avec ces 5 chambres avec salles de bains, son grand salon, une salle télé et la grande salle à manger ; Le tout sont très bien entretenus et décorés typiquement dans le style de ces demeures familiales. Il y avait tout l'électroménager nécessaire ainsi que le wifi. L'isolation n'est pas le fort de ce genre de bâtisse mais nous étions bien au chaud sous les couettes douillettes. Idem pour les douches un peu rudimentaires mais qui font l'affaire. Bref, un moment inoubliable à conseiller sans hésitation.
