Kilmallock, Limerick.ID: SRS0177701
Stay at a traditional cottage that has been sensitively refurbished to ensure its traditional Irish character has been preserved. Once home to servants at nearby Oliver’s Castle, the property is located in Ardpatrick (11km from Kilmallock) and now features a large, tastefully designed sun room, which makes the perfect setting for breakfast.
This is the ideal place if you are looking for peace and tranquillity, along with accessibility to the more popular areas in the surrounding region, such as Cork, Limerick and Killarney.
There is also easy access to golf courses and shops, and the area is renowned for wonderful country and woodland walks.
Upstairs there are two bedrooms, one of which is ensuite. Both bedrooms are decorated in an attractive country style and are bright and airy with a feature wall in natural stone.
This cottage gives guests the best of both worlds. The nearest pubs are no more than 4 km away, but the only sounds you will hear around you are the local wildlife and farm animals. The only traffic you'll hear is the occasional neighbour’s vehicle passing by.

The cottage is extremely well equipped, very clean and comfortable - probably the best we have ever stayed in. The Ballyhoura area is superb for walking and mountain biking and this cottage was an ideal base. The nearest shops are about 10km away and can satisfy most needs for groceries etc. There are not many good local restaurants but eating in after a day hiking is very enjoyable. Good quality mountain bikes are available for €35 per day from the trailhead (3km away) and the dedicated trails are superb for fit beginners to elite athletes! The immediate area is not a popular tourist area (but should be for walking and biking) but more popular areas are about an hour away by car. The cottage is ideal for a get away break for a couple of family. Internet access is not available and could be a useful addition. The nearest internet cafe is in Kilmallock 10km away. The owners were very friendly and helpful but left us to enjoy the peaceful surroundings. The driving directions are not clear so ensure you contact them by phone or use a good map and prepare in advance!
I cant speak highly enough about Ballyhoura cottage, it was exactly what we were looking for right in the middle of nowhere. Complete silence and fabulous scenery, friendly people. I will book again for sure.
Sure! Please contact us with your enquiry and we will get back to you.
