About Us

About Ballyboy House

Ballyboy House Farmhouse accommodation nestles under the Knockmealdown Mountains on the R 665 road in beautiful County Tipperary. It is a Georgian house that has been in the Moran family for five generations. John and Breeda are your hosts and greatly enjoy welcoming people to their homestead. It is a very comfortable house, with antique furnishings, open log fires and, above all, very spacious rooms with all modern conveniences.

The farm is a working farm with cattle and forestry—the latter consisting of all native Irish hardwoods and where you can take a stroll and admire the lush scenery of the Golden Vale, the Vee Gap and the Knockmealdown Mountains. Alternatively, if you would rather, you can try your hand at fly fishing on the River Tar—which flows through our land.

The house is located in a very historical area. We have many ruins of monastic and architectural interest nearby, there are Harry Clarke windows in Duhill church and the ruins of the 11th century Ballyboy Castle are on our farm. It is a totally unspoilt area. Outdoor activities are available all around us and if it peace and tranquility one seeks we can assure you, you won't be disappointed.

We take great pride in our home and like to please everyone. Home cooking, using all local produce, is very important and all dietary needs are catered for. Breakfasts, packed lunches and evening meals are available on request.
