We are delighted to announce that A civic reception will be held in Cork City Hall on December the 4th at 6PM to honour Myrtle Allen and her contribution to the food industry of Ireland.

Darina Wins Cookbook of the Year!

We are delighted to announce that Darina Allen's latest book '30 Years at Ballymaloe' was awarded The 'Avonmore Cookbook of the Year' award at the Irish Book Awards last night.

Darina's book celebrates her 30 years at Ballymaloe Cookery School which first opened it's doors to students in 1983, at which time there were 15 cookery courses available. Now there are over 100 courses each year. These are reflected in the recipes collected in this book.

Downton Abbey Supper Club

It was like stepping back in time… But in a good way!... The hand printed wallpapers illuminated by candlelit... The silverware overflowing with perfectly ripe fruit… The ladies donned their finest pearls and the gents their bow ties…. And the food was simply delicious.

The first ever Ballymaloe House Supper Club took place on Tuesday night. It was soiree like no other. The Downton Abbey theme gave guests the opportunity to dress like lords and ladies while the kitchen produces a menu that captured the best of post Edwardian life.

Ballymaloe Craft & Design Festival 2014 is a great success!

Ballymaloe House Celebrates 45 years

Last Tuesday, September 22nd, Ballymaloe celebrated their 45th year in business. The Allen Family held a celebration dinner in honour of the occasion and especially to thank senior staff members who had worked there from the beginning.

Bees and News

Ballymaloe has just acquired two new beehives and are hoping to collect a swarm of bees from around the local area. If we are successful then the Ballymaloe chefs will hopefully be using their own honey by September, it will only be a small amount but Ballymaloe means the 'place of sweet honey' so it is fitting that there are beehives here.

What a Week! What a Night!

Rory Allen’s November, 2008 music week at Ballymaloe was over the top

The week began on a very high note, with Moya Brennan of Clannad fame, her husband Tim, Cathy Jordan of Dervish, and one of Ireland’s finest harpers, Cormac de Barra, performing in the Ballymaloe drawing room for two nights. Hearing beautiful and distinctive voices of those two ladies in that setting was pure magic.

Summer

July and August Summer is here and families are visiting once more. We have very creative young guests this month and they have all been inspired by the 2008 Olympics, some are building ramps dotted throughout the wood and garden for bike races, others are trying to learn how to synchronise swim much to the amusement of us all. Unfortunately some of our eggs got used for a bowling competition by two very mischievous young girls ( the chefs did not get their hands on them in time!)
