Outstanding Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5

The property is outstanding for family holiday. The pictures actually don't do the property justice. We stayed recently and had a magnificent time at the property. Denny was a pure gem to work with, any concerns were immediately addressed and he appeared promptly on the scene. The house had all the amenities you would have at your own home. The property was well maintained and clean. The location lends itself well for touring the South East portion of Ireland. Plenty of restaurants to choose from within 10 to 15 minutes drive. Grocery stores we also only 5 to 10 minutes away. One of our favorites places was the Whitford Hotel for dinner (very popular with locals). Again one of the many recommendations on offer. I highly recommend this property.

This is probably as good as it gets!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time and was equally impressed; a beautifully maintained home not far from the City Center and we took our whole family and had just a wonderful stay.....Denis Roberts (owner's father) is great and nearby for

any problems...they lefts us a crib for the baby and every possible amenity was available.

Very impressed

  • 5 of 5

We were in Wexford for a large family gathering and were fortunate to have found Ballywether. The house is ideal for a large group, we had 9 staying there and we were all quite comfortable. It was also the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend and were able to cook a huge meal for 15 people with the facilities in the kitchen. This is a great house for hosting people as there is so much room. The second floor has a full size snooker table and entertainment centre which kept adults and children entertained.

Denny is the property manager but also built this estate home and knows everything about the house and area. He was very helpful and friendly and seemed more like one of our family than a property manager.

Thanks again for a great stay and we look forward to seeing you when we return in a couple of years. I cannot think of anywhere else that we would stay when in Wexford.

Truly a home away in Ireland

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Ballywether house was amazing. We were not sure what to expect, but when we arrived we were immediately impressed by the gated property with winding drive over a stream to the house perched up on the hill so that it enjoys wonderful views of the countryside from all of the rooms. The inside of the house was clean, well outfitted, and perfect for a large and active family. The property was safe and private and our kids felt right at home with the toys and all the outdoors space to run around. The house was not far from Wexford city center and was in the perfect location for our driving adventures to other destinations. Dennis was so sweet and helpful, showing us all the workings of the house and telling us of great local dining options. We will definitely be coming back to this house, truly a home away in Ireland!

Thank you so much for the wonderful stay!
