Highly recommended ! We booked three lodges for a big family get together and with the open spaces it suited the family get together meals which was brilliant ! I dealt with John who was lovely and very helpful ! Loads of activates for families in the area we brought bikes and went to the fantastic ballyhoura forest bike trails just a few minutes away and we loved Donnrail park . Kids loved the small zip line and playgrounds ..clean comfortable and we will be back :-)) it's a beautiful part of the country and the houses are a great base to explore !
We booked 2 houses for a family weekend away. We asked for houses close together and the houses that we received were as requested. First impressions driving in its the recreation areas for the kids. There are plenty of play areas and a zip line. On reaching the houses they exceeded our expectations. We stayed in a 3 bedroom which had 1 room with a double bed and 2 rooms with 2 singles in each. Each room was ensuite. The house was spotless. The kitchen has all of the appliances (modern ) and equipment that you would need (again everything was perfectly clean).
I was very surprised to see that the TV came with the full sky package. It was Ryder cup weekend. It was a very good touch.
I can't complain about any part of the house. It was very clean and had everything anyone could need. I commend the owners (John and Mary)for their attention to detail.
The area is very nice. There is a small wood to wander around. We visited mitchelstown caves and had a great morning. Kids loved it.
We brought the kids bikes and we wish we'd stayed longer to explore more.
To finish I would recommend ballyhoura forest houses to anyone. Whether your looking for a quiet family or adventure weekend (mountain biking) you couldn't go wrong with basing yourself here.
Just a heads up though. There is little or no mobile phone network on site so don't plan on being on the phone which is also a very nice change.
We had a great time.the houses are nicely laid out and you feel right at home.john and Mary made the family feel very welcome. We enjoyed the walks and the simplicity of nature. If you want a chilled out getaway this is the ideal getaway.looking forward to the next getaway.
The house had everything you need, including dishwasher tablets! I could not believe it, the only thing we needed to bring was the food, the rest included in the house. It had all the commodities you can think of, including SKY Sports channel and have to say that we enjoyed not having mobile reception. It is nice to be isolated for a couple of days.

Just left ballyhoura and can't wait to return with the whole family.The accomadation and location was excellent .
5 of us Stayed here in September for a weekend away mountain biking. These homes are run by John, they are well maintained and clean. John met us and we were greeted with a warm welcome and a bottle of wine. The homes are in a great location, actually in the forest. The mountain bike trail centre is about a mile away so best just to cycle up the road to get to it.
We had a great weekend and will definitely be back!
Were do I start from beautiful views of the mountains and the log cabins I could live in,the village pub really welcoming and all the walks..I would recommend this as it takes your breath away and the cabins have everything you need and even has sky tv,can't wait till the next time I visit such a beautiful time
