Finbar Furey

Musician, singer, recording artist, actor, raconteur Finbar Furey is one of the great Irish performing artists. He sold out Ballymaloe Grainstore two years ago, so we've invited him and his full band back  for another show on Bank Holiday Sunday 5 June .
 
Finbar tours extensively, bringing his rare talents to a world-wide stage and treating audiences to evenings of pure Irish magic, great music, good humour, and the charm and sparkling wit.
 

New Bar

Each year during the month of January Ballymaloe takes a well-deserved break for 3 weeks which facilitates the ideal time to renovate some of the bedrooms.
 
This year however, the bar was privileged to a much needed makeover.
 
What originally began as a water line adjustment for the above castle room lead to the extensive removal of the existing bar walls, returning to the original stone wall of the 15th Centenary Norman Castle.

The Ultimate Mince Pie Recipe from Ballymaloe’s Pastry Pro

JR Ryall, head pastry chef at Ballymaloe House, gives us a masterclass in Christmas baking with his mouthwatering mince pie recipe …
 
There are many Christmas traditions that mark the start of the festive season. At Ballymaloe House the unmistakable scent of citrus peel slowly candying in late October marks it for me. This might seem unimaginably early to get into the mood for Christmas carols and roasting chestnuts on an open fire, but with the task of Christmas baking ahead it is the perfect opportunity to ease into the spirit of things.
