Ballyglass Country House is a small family run hotel in a 19th century house surrounded by 5 acres of gardens at the gateway to the beautiful Glen of Aherlow in Co Tipperary. You will find a tradition of hospitality here that is both ageless and timeless, with a warm welcome for every guest, whether you are staying with us for the first time or returning for yet another visit.

Our family are always on hand to ensure that each and every guest has a memorable and comfortable stay.

This place was the best value and nicest people … who give you space or advice as you need it

What was once a gracious country house at the centre of a large estate is now a small hotel which retains the relaxed and friendly atmosphere of a private home.

The Byrne family purchased Ballyglass House in April 1996, having previously spent thirteen very successful years in the Fir Grove Hotel in Mitchelstown, County Cork. In more recent times the second generation of Byrnes have become involved the business and our daughters, Jane and Ruth, now have an important and active role in managing the hotel.

When we first came to Ballyglass we immediately set about an extensive refurbishment and modernisation programme, always conscious of the importance keeping the best of the old while providing up-dated facilities and services for our guests.

We reopened in December 1996, and since then our family and our staff have welcomed thousands of guests, many of whom return to stay with us again and again.

We aim to make our guests feel relaxed and at home whether they are with us for a night or a week, have just dropped in to enjoy a meal or a drink, or are with us to celebrate a special occasion such as a wedding.

No matter what the reason for your visit you can be sure of a genuine welcome and the friendly personal service that only a small family run hotel can provide.

Gardens at Ballyglass

Back in 1996 the gardens were in a sadly neglected state, and restoring them was a priority for us. After years of care and attention the gardens have now been returned to their former glory.

The house is now surrounded by 5 acres of private ground and gardens, ideal for a stroll in the evening or for taking some special photographs to remind you of your time with us.

Ballyglass Country House is approved by Failte Ireland, the Irish Tourist Board, is a member of the Irish Hotels Federation (IHF) and is an accredited member of the IHF’s Quality Employer Programme.
