Ballyteigue House in County Limerick is a large 4* country house of great character, built in 1800s as a “hunting lodge”, now beautifully presented making it a perfect, comfortable holiday base for you.
If you are interested in golfing, fishing, hillwalking, cycling, mountain biking, horse-riding or touring this most beautiful and historic part of Ireland you will find no better place.
Ballyteigue House is close to the village of Bruree and is set on a hill, enjoying beautiful sweeping views over the lush Golden Vale countryside, and onto the Ballyhoura hills, and Galtee Mountains.
If you want, you can stay put and just wallow in the rural tranquility, light a roaring fire and settle down with a good book….. but on your doorstep is undoubtedly an area of legend, of folklore, castles, priorys, monastic and prehistoric ruins for you to discover.
