We visited Ballymaloe with some friends and absolutely loved everything from start to finish. Fresh local salmon, delicious cheeses and an array of desserts perfectly accompanied by suggested wines made for a wonderful evening.

Enjoyed a delicious three course lunch with my sister. Everything from the bread, wine, mains, starter & dessert was divine. We enjoyed walking around the shop & gardens afterward. Will return again in not too distant future! Really beautiful!
