Connie was great! She was more then accommodating even when we had three more guests that decided to join us. We enjoyed our stay. Beds were clean and we were able to cook meals for 14 people. One downside is you have to take fast showers or you would run out of hot water. We would stay here again.
Beautiful, One of a Kind experience, in Period Mansion.
We were so excited to find The Ballycumber House available to rent for holiday. I love older homes and manors and the history and stories that come with them. Ballycumber is beautiful inside and out. It catches your heart, from your first glimpse coming up the driveway, no where else compares, especially when your teenagers say, "we get to stay here, all to ourselves?" For a moment we stepped back in time and it was amazing. Ms. Connie is a beautiful soul and she shared her home and memories with us. There is a library full of books to keep you intrigued for hours, there is even one with information on Ballycumber itself. The girls loved the donkeys and the game room in the basement that was originally part of the castle in the 1600s. The river behind the house was beautiful to look at as well as the very old stone Gazebo on the hill which you can read about in one of the books in the library. The beds were very comfortable and rooms very cozy. There is plenty of room for all. The kitchen was perfect and next to it was a laundry with washer and dryer. Thank you Ms. Connie, for everything, I love Ballycumber and it will always have a special place in my heart. Your friends from Kentucky United States of America......The Smiths
Hello Paul and Tracie ,and thank you for you lovely review and thanks so much for visiting Ballycumber House,
I hope you enjoyed your visit to Galway ,the Cliffs of Moher and the Dublin experience,the Irish weather could have been better for you but it does have its moments,
Thanks again for your visit ,and your kind comments,
We had so much fun at this stunning country mansion at the kick off of our trip. It comfortably fit all 13 of us, and was a true experience in the gorgeous Irish countryside. Just an hour and a half (on the train located just 3 miles away) from both Galway and Dublin, it was a perfect location for us to see as much as possible during our 3 nights at Ballycumber house. All of us agreed that Connie was the best part of the whole experience. She was knowledgeable and helpful, and extremely passionate about the former castle turned home that has been in her family for generations. She even made sure we had reached our next destination safely. If you keep in mind that this is a unique experience and not a 5 star hotel (plumbing and electric were added well after the construction of the house) then you will not be disappointed! I would definitely send anyone headed to Ireland to stay in Connie’s beautiful home.
Three weeks at Ballycumber House
Words are barely adequate to describe my “house party” at Ballycumber House. To celebrate a big “0” birthday, I decided to rent a big house and invite my friends and family to join me. Over the course of 3 weeks, 20 people came and went, and the house handled us all, even the night we had 15 for dinner!
Connie is an absolute delight, and I am so glad I got a chance to know her. She is incredibly responsive, and her gracious warm welcome set the tone for our stay. The house became our home, and the perfect base for day trips all over the country. I was surprised at how much there was to see and do just within a short drive, and we loved exploring the Clara Bog.
I hired a private chef, and when we returned from our excursions, there was coffee, tea and some little tasty treat waiting for us, along with the turf fire. Chef Chris prepared remarkable food in the small kitchen, and no one had to argue about who was going to shop, cook, and clean up after.
If you are looking for a centrally-located house, you can’t do better than Ballycumber House. It never felt too small, but when our numbers dwindled, it never felt too large either. The donkeys and the ponies grazing in the front pasture were delightful, too. The house (built as a castle in 1627) overlooks a 5,000-year-old ford and trade route, and is the starting point for a pilgrim walk to Clonmacnoise. How fun is that! Stay here. You will not be disappointed.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review it was a pleasure to have you and all your friends and delighted you enjoyed your stay with us.
Wundervoll! Wir kommen gerne wieder.
Wir waren vom 23.05. bis 30.05.2018 mit der Familie (6 Erwachsene) in Irland und haben in dieser Zeit im Ballycumber House gewohnt. Es war einfach nur großartig!
Connie hat uns sehr herzlich empfangen und hat dann eine ausführliche Führung durch das Haus gemacht. Es ist sehr viel größer als es auf den Bildern erscheint! Wenn man ganz allein im Haus ist, kann man sich schon mal gruseln, weil es einfach riesig ist - wenn alle 6 Leute im Haus verteilt waren, sind wir uns oft einfach nicht über den Weg gelaufen. Am ersten Tag war es für uns noch ungewohnt, dass wir uns dort einfach frei bewegen konnten, da wir manchmal das Gefühl hatten, in einem Museum zu wohnen (einige der Bücher in der Bibliothek sind 100 Jahre alt und auch die Einrichtung ist teilweise so alt oder erscheint so). ;-) Nach ein paar Tagen hatten wir uns daran gewöhnt und haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Sehr charmant ist auch die direkte Lage am Fluss. Wir hatten sehr viel Glück mit dem Wetter (jeden Tag ca. 25°C und Sonne) und haben es dann umso mehr genossen, draußen zu sitzen.
Wir haben Irland mit dem Auto erkundet. Von Ballycumber bis Dublin sind es ca. 1,5 Stunden Autofahrt und bis nach Clonmacnoise sind es ca. 25 Minuten Autofahrt. Es ist also ziemlich zentral gelegen. Auch die Gegend rund um Ballycumber ist absolut sehenswert. In Ballycumber gibt es auch Pubs, die man unbedingt besuchen sollte.
Für uns steht fest: Wir kommen gerne wieder und bringen dann noch ein paar mehr Leute mit. Genügend Platz ist da.
Connie ist eine tolle Vermieterin, mit der man sich auch sehr gut unterhalten kann. Außerdem konnten wir sie einfach und unkompliziert anrufen, wenn wir Fragen hatten.
Danke, Connie! Wir hatten einen wundervollen Urlaub!

Hello Sarah, may l thank you for your wonderful review.
It was a pleasure having you as guests and l am delighted that you enjoyed your stay and felt so welcome in our community,
With good wishes
Lovely house in perfect location
The house suited our needs and had everything we required, even a little play room for my daughter! The location was perfect as we were able to travel to different places in Ireland. The local shop/pub/coffee shop was lovely and the people were very welcoming and as it was in walking distance from the house it was the perfect place to stock up.
Thank you so much Rebecca, l am delighted you enjoyed your stay at Ballycumber House.
