Located in the picturesque, historic estate village of Ballon in County Carlow on the former lands of Ballykealey House, 10 mins south of Carlow Town (and train station) and close to the M9 Motorway to Dublin and Waterford.

Dublin is only 1 hr by car and the medieval city of Kilkenny is close by - 25 mins by car. Wicklow National Park is also approx 40 mins to the east. Also, close to the N80 road south to Rosslare Port.

Did You know - Carlow was the capital of Ireland in the 14th century.
