This is a new addition to Ballymaloe, an elegant, tall, castle which was converted in 2007. The ground floor has a small, well equipped kitchen off the round living / dining area. The second floor has a twin bedded room with shower. The third floor has a twin bedded room with bath/shower. The castellated roof garden has table & chairs where you can get away from it all and enjoy a 365 degree view of the surrounding farmland. Beautifully designed, it is certainly a talking point of the holiday.
This cottage is what is referred to as a two up, two down. The accommodation on the ground floor consists of a large farmhouse-style kitchen with doors opening to the sunny garden where there is an outdoor eating area, which due to its sunny aspect can be used all year around. There is also a large sitting room on this floor. The couch may be converted to a double bed and there is a bathroom with shower off this room. Upstairs there are two twin bedded rooms, one with bath/shower and the other with shower.
