I had a fantastic stay in number 1 Ballagh Court, I stayed there for 2 weeks while doing work experience in secret valley wildlife park. The farmhouse was so beautiful and has everything you could possibly need for your stay there. Richard and Salvia are 2 of the nicest people I have met in a long time, they could not do enough for me and Richard even organized for me to go lambing in one of the nearby farms. I ended up staying an extra night in the end because I didn't want to leave and as I was about to leave the next morning Salvia gave me a half dozen fresh eggs from her chickens so I was delighted, I am 100% sure I will be back to stay in Ballagh court in the near future.

Thanks for your hospitality Richard & Salvia

Kind Regards
Sarah

“Fabulous cottages, stunning location, perfect for a relaxing break.”

I stayed at Ballagh Court along with my family (including 2 young children) for the last week in October. I can honestly say what a fantastic place this is. Richard & Salvia who own and manage these cottages were always on hand with help and advice, nothing was too much trouble & they really made us feel welcome.

The cottages were fantastic, clean and homely and very well equipped. The bedrooms were all very spacious, and super comfy! Our 2 young children loved staying on the 'farm', and were eager to watch Salvia feeding the pot bellied pigs and the chickens each day. I fell in love with the dog Maggie who was very friendly and always happy to see us! There is a small play area, which was perfect for letting the kids burn off some energy & to keep them entertained.

The cottages are very rural in location but this only adds to their charm - rustic, rural, & traditional. The towns of Wexford, Waterford & New Ross are all within half an hours reach, and each has their own attractions and facilities worth a visit. We also spent a day in Kilkenny, which was about an hour away - definitely well worth the drive!

If you love peace and quiet, beautiful views and the rustic charm of an Irish farm, this is place for you!

“Perfect! Short or long stay.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

This farm house provides the quintessential Irish experience. We've spent many years visiting the area and can recommend the property and the location. We had three weeks at Ballagh Court sight unseen and will definitely return.

Ballagh Court is all the things claimed in the description plus what the other reviews have mentioned (read the long one from 2012). Richard and Salvia are lovely, they made our stay quite special, a roaring fire on our return from a weekend in Cork and a visit from the Easter Bunny! You don't get any better than that!

The countryside is beautiful yet everything is in easy reach. Adamstown is a few minutes drive and has a shop with almost anything you could need. The pub is worth a visit to get a feel for the locals. Clonroche is just as close, Jackie Green's is great for any outdoor gear you may need or anything else you have forgotten, it brings new meaning to the word Wellies! Richard can provide recommendations for restaurants etc that are nearby.

An earlier review pointed out that on the map everything looks far away, but this is Ireland, nothing is far, the drive from Dublin is easy and well under 2 hrs. Wexford town is only 20 minutes from Ballagh Court, the other large towns of New Ross and Eniscorthy are closer.

At Ballagh Court everything you need is provided without fuss or interference. We travelled with a 2 year old and 11 year old who loved the house and the farm animals.

Definitely somewhere to return to :-)

“Outstanding Self Catering Cottage Experience”

Our first five nights (of 15) in Ireland were at the Ballagh Court Cottages. We had unit #1, which had two bedrooms upstairs, along with two full baths. On the lower/ground level there was a large kitchen with dining area and the living room (with wood stove).

The cottage, including the bedrooms were very spacious and comfortable. The kitchen was fully equipped leaving nothing to need for a self-catering stay. Other than our first night in the cottage, we had all meals here during our time in County Wexford.

The location was perfect given the places we wanted to see and explore from here. Richard was also very helpful in making recommendations, including where we should dine our first night.

It bears noting that the cottage is about 165km from the Dublin Airport, but is easily reached after an overnight flight and early (8am) arrival into Dublin. We even took in Glendalough on the way.

We booked through ImagineIreland.com. After making our booking, I did note that Richard accepts direct bookings too. You may want to go that route instead of having to pay a commission to the booking agency. (http://www.ballaghcourt.com/)

If we are ever fortunate enough to return to Ireland, Ballagh Court will be on our itinerary and I will book directly with Richard.

“Ballagh Court Cottage # 1”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2012 for a stay in March 2012

A great rural retreat in an authentic cottage with all the conveniences and facilities you could want. We really enjoyed our weekend in Ballagh Court which is warm and comfortable and a great base to see the region from or just to hideaway. Richard and Salvia the owners are welcoming and friendly and if your into farmyard animals you wont be dissapointed or put off. A great stay. George, Dublin
