5/5 Excellent

Fantastic stay in Old Parish
Great location and unusual house for a family reunion. The house is extremely comfortable with great beds, loads of living space and 4 spacious bathrooms. The toys and table tennis were also a hit. The host was exceptionally helpful both during booking and our stay.

5/5 Excellent

Stunning property and wonderful owners
In September, 2019 we brought a group of 6 athletes and 2 coaches from Canada to Dungarvan for a tournament. We stayed at Ballinaharda; the wonderful home of Ruth and Ulrich. The home is truly spectacular. Ballinaharda was so much more than we expected. The 5 rooms are very large and the common areas are huge. Having 4 bathrooms was such a treat. The home easily accommodated our group and it was easy to find some quiet space for yourself when you needed it. We had our meals together in the red kitchen and shared time together in the huge living room and library. The attention to detail in this property really sets it apart. Ballinaharda should really be featured on a television show. The home is perfect for a family reunion, retreat, or any group of 10 people or so. Ballinaharda is a vacation destination itself. Ruth and Ulrich explained the history of the property and showed us pictures of the home's conversion. You really are living in history at Ballinaharda. You can see the pride that Ruth and Ulrich have in this unique property. The landscape around Ballinaharda is stunning. It was everything we imagined the Irish countryside to be. The home is set a few minutes drive from Dungarvan in a lush, rural area on the coast. The views are stunning. Treat yourself and sit in the courtyard with a coffee or tea and watch the sunrise. It is awesome. Ballinaharda is surrounded by small farms, hedge rows, and a hundred different shades of green. The sea is literally right outside your window. Walk, run, or bike down the country roads and take in the awesome vistas including the highest lighthouse in Ireland. You can see it from your window. Ruth and Ulrich were very attentive hosts. They were kind and caring and genuinely concerned about every detail of our stay. They were at the property to meet us and stopped by to say farewell. They ensured we were settled and gave us wonderful insight and tips about the area. They even stopped in at the tournament to cheer us on. They were always very quick to reply to our e-mails from our first inquiry several months earlier. Our family has rented homes through VRBO and other sites about 20 or 25 times throughout the world. I can say without exaggeration that this was the best home and the best hosts we have ever come across. You can rent this property with confidence. You will love it. Thank you Ruth and Ulrich.

Meadows trip
We had an amazing stay at Ruth and Ulrich’s amazing property. They were such great hosts. We wish we could have stayed longer and hope to return soon!

5/5 Excellent

Lovely stay.
A great House for families especially when renting the whole house. It’s quite amazing. One downside is the distance from towns.: Ulrich and Ruth are very welcoming.
