Voted “Best New Resort in The World” by Robb Report and listed as one of the “World’s Best New Hotels” on the Conde Nast Hotlist, everyone is buzzing about Ballyfin in Ireland this year… and now, travel advisor Yannette Edwards of Cardoza-Bungey Travel is too! Yannette is just back from Ballyfin. Here is what she had to say about her experience:
“I have traveled to over 110 countries, and have experienced many 5 star properties. Deluxe this and that, gourmet food promised, spas galore, but NEVER have I experienced what I did when I stayed at Ballyfin June 22.
I traveled with my older brother to 10 properties in Ireland last month. They were all deluxe, all “nice” until we arrived at Ballyfin. What your property is, and the way I will sell it, is “should be on your bucket list.” I cannot imagine having any client traveling to Ireland and not highly suggesting they stay with you for 1-4 days. I realize what a gem you have, and I would hate for it to change to a mainstream hotel. What you and your team have achieved is perfection.
I must say, I used the buggy, I walked 15 KM around the property, went to the tower, ( to the top!), visited where the skeet shooting was, went down to the boat house, walked your gardens, etc. I toured the property and was in awe of what you have accomplished. Experiencing Ballyfin made me feel transported in time, magical, and was just so impressed with the feel.
I feel like I have seen it all in this business… but this is truly a labor of love and your passion for Ballyfin shows.”
