To dine at Ballyvolane House located in Castlelyons, County Cork and one of Ireland’s most elegant manor houses, is to have stepped into a Jane Austen novel, where pampered guests of the landed gentry arrive for a house party with liveried servants in tow. Ballyvolane House is a family hotel and restaurant, run by Justin and Jenny Green.
The menu at Ballyvolane House celebrates locally produced ingredients, including the freshest, garden-grown fruits and vegetables, as well as salmon from the famous River Blackwater and local lamb, renowned for its tenderness and flavor. Ireland also is world-famous for its green pastures, the exclusive diet of the country’s dairy cows, so cheese and butter star on the Ballyvolane House menu.
