Ballyrafter Country House HotelBallyrafter Country House Hotel

The Duke of Devonshire was one of the wealthiest men in England when he first constructed the Ballyrafter House Hotel, early in the 1800’s.

This well built and visually stunning country residence was intended for his personal estate manager, and is a great testament to the courteous lifestyle of its original owners.

The Public Rooms have 14 foot ceilings, decorative moulding, striking fireplaces, superior mahogany surroundings and luxurious carpets. The large windows also overlook the acres of garden and scenic landscape. You will find a peaceful residents lounge where aperitifs can be relished in front of our open log fire. Pop into the large dining area with its gleaming bay windows that overlook the large garden area. At night the window tables oversea the amazingly lit towers & bastions of Lismore Castle – a fairy tale that really is evident.

“Unpretentious Comforts"

Though graceful, Ballyrafter House Hotel offers, in the very words of one writer, "unpretentious comforts". Our hotel doesn't feel stuffy, yet is warm and welcoming at the same time. The sun room/ conservatory and lounge area help towards this feeling of peaceful relaxation. Our excellent restaurant features fresh local foods and breakfasts, which are included with all bookings.
