Ballymaloe Gardens

Ballymaloe House is set on 300-acres of gardens, woodlands, and farmland.

Our guests are provided with a pair of wellies, allowing them to wonder effortlessly along the paths which are suitable for every fitness level.

Walking maps with marked up routes are available from reception, detailing recommended adventure trails and average walking times. The longest walking trail is approximately 1 hour, and meanders along woodland paths, estate boundaries and the Ballymaloe Farm parameters.

The land around Ballymaloe House is managed by experienced groundsman Tobias Pedersen, with a strong background and passion for sustainable land management.

Throughout the grounds you will see numerous examples of nature sensitive initiatives such as wilding plantations, reed bed water filtration, pollinator planting as well as an owl breeding boxes, and our own beehives.
