We ask potential guests to read this page and the accompanying Terms & Conditions carefully before making a booking, as these respectively summarise and detail what constitutes “fair use” of the accommodation on offer. Please contact us if you have any questions or we can be of assistance in tailoring your stay. All reservations, bookings and payments are subject to the Full Booking Terms & Conditions (T&Cs)**.
Ballynoe House supports the “Booking Direct with the Owner” movement. Our dedicated FreetoBook reservation and payment system is the simplest, cheapest and most sustainable way to book your stay. You can pay a deposit up to eight weeks prior to arrival. The system accepts most bookings and pro rate stays down to a 4-night minimum. Call us to book dedicated luxury weekends or discuss other periods of stay. Discounts are available for longer stays and there is also 10% discount for returning guests*.
Credit cards are accepted for all reservations by phone or Skype, but must be paid in full at the time of booking. Rates are currently all-inclusive of utilities, services & amenities as advertised and VAT. Despite the 50% hike in VAT rates to 13.5% (effective 1st January 2019), we plan not to increasing our prices for 2019. Pricing from 2020 is subject to review – Pricing Schedule. In support of families, depending on the bedroom configuration you choose, one or two children may be effectively free of charge.
As a “Thank You” for booking direct with us your booking is free of charge as we pay your booking fee. We may be able to provide additional benefits such as earlier check-in, later check out and a free night (subject to availability). Check-in times are after 16:00 and Check Out no later than 10:00.
Ballynoe House is child-friendly, providing 2 acres of grounds for kids to explore. A high chair and one travel cot (bedding not provided) is included in each let, but parents are welcome to bring their own travel cot, if they prefer. For families that need to accommodate an additional child above the standard sleeping configuration, a fold-up bed can be supplied upon request (one additional bed per Mews house only). Please mention required bedroom configurations at time of booking.
For logistical reasons and the low-allergen interiors we do not accept pets (except service dogs registered for the blind or infirm, by prior agreement only)**.
We are available to discuss special occasions and group bookings that require all three lets and outside catering support. To preserve the special tranquil setting of our home and the rights of other guests, all social events or functions that exceed the contractual number of occupants in any of the lets must be agreed in writing and will be subject to additional conditions. Ballynoe House is a gated property which can provide additional safety and security upon request.
Ballynoe House is pleased to promote West Cork as a destination for bona fide artists by providing a discount of 10%*. Generous off-road parking allows us to support the annual West Cork Rally by providing competing teams, support vehicles and their families accommodation at our low season rates.
Follow us on Facebook for regional events, updates and news.
We look forward to welcoming you as guests to our special piece of beautiful West Cork.
Mark & Felicity Grace, Ballynoe House
