Irish Whiskey Ballymaloe Experience

Come and join us for the Ultimate Irish Whiskey Ballymaloe experience.

Arrive into Ballymaloe to a Midelton Very Rare in front of the fire in the Drawing room. Head to your room to relax or if you would like we can organise a tour of our award winning cellar with one of our sommeliers.

Enjoy dinner in the dining room and then an Irish coffee in the drawing room after.

The following day after breakfast head into the Jameson Distillery in Midleton and see how Irish whiskey has been made from the beginning to now.

Busy summer at Ballymaloe Country House Hotel

After a wonderfully busy summer at Ballymaloe House some of the front of house staff was treated to a day out! The weather was on our side so we headed off to experience East Cork's newest attraction- a guided tour of the Ballycotton Lighthouse Island.

Tour of our wine cellar

Our award winning Sommeliers Colm or Samuel would be delighted to give a tour of our wine cellar.

See wines purchased by Mr Allen 50 years ago as Sam and Colm share their passion and experience of wine with you.

Country House Flowers and Seasonal Décor courses with Iona

Iona is the in-house florist at Ballymaloe House and she uses predominantly wild and garden flowers. She will demonstrate her style of flower arranging and creating seasonal displays for table centres, posies and larger displays of country house flowers as well as seasonal floral decorations.

Garden Blog August 2014

April’s showers seem so long ago as we work in August’s dusty garden where we’re busy watering sweet peas, summer lettuce, courgettes and pumpkins. Months have flown by and the countdown has begun in earnest to the Ballymaloe Garden Festival.

Almond Tart or Tartlets with Raspberries

Cream the butter well and then just stir in the sugar and ground almonds. (Don’t over beat or the oil will come out of the ground almonds as it cooks.)

Put a teaspoon of the mixture into 24 small patty tins or divide between 2 x 7 inch sandwich tins. Bake at 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4 for 20-30 minutes approx. or until golden brown, 10-12 minutes for tartlets or until golden brown.

The tarts or tartlets are too soft to turn out immediately so cool in tins for about 5 minutes before turning out.

Equinox with Majorie Barnes

The Grainstore is delighted to be part of the Guinness Cork Jazz Festival for the first time and to present an exclusive performance by Equinox, a jazz quintet based in the Netherlands, featuring veteran American vocalist Marjorie Barnes.

Born and raised in New York City, Marjorie Barnes has done it all from jazz to soul, R&B, Broadway and back. In a long and varied career, she has sung with legends such as Frank Sinatra, Lena Horne, Mel Lewis and many others.

Skylight - Screening

Bill Nighy, Carey Mulligan and Matthew Beard appear in the West End production of David Hare’s Skylight, directed by Stephen Daldry, which was recorded live in London's Wyndham’s Theatre in July of this year. We present it on a screen in The Grainstore.

Foster and Allen

Following on from the success of their No. 1 TV Show on TG4, Foster and Allen embark on an Irish Summer Tour which concludes in Ballymaloe Grainstore on Sunday 14 September.

Mick Foster and Tony Allen continue to scale new heights after almost four decades in the music business. Their new 13-week series, The Foster and Allen Show, is currently airing on TG4 on Sunday nights.
