Dilisk & Rosemary Martini

We had a super Easter at Ballymaloe. The first wisteria blossoms opened on the front of the house indicating that Summer is on the way. Regular guests enjoyed the warm long evenings sipping pre-dinner cocktails out the front. It was a busy weekend for the Ballymaloe bar!

Poolside Pimms

I just love summertime at Ballymaloe and this year’s hot summer days have been so welcomed. Would you believe, for the first time in years, there was no fire lit in the drawing room during the month of July! Being down by the swimming pool, listening to the children squealing with delight as they jumped into the water, made me smile. There is always a grandchild or even great grandchild around to entertain both the guests and staff!

Fresh Fish

Entertaining guests this summer has been easy with the good weather and more often than not this entertaining involves the guests getting involved in Ballymaloe life. Most evenings Rory Allen takes guests and friends fishing at Ballycotton in his boat “MOLLY DANIEL”.
