I stayed at the forest homes on the May weekend with a group of walkers from Galway. We were here for the Ballyhoura walking festival. I had never been here before. I have to say it is a hidden jewel, which is as nice as any part of Ireland. The homes were very comfortable, the setting tranquil and beautiful. I would recommend them to anybody for comfort and value. The towns around are well worth a visit.Thank You.
! Beautiful setting in the middle of the forest. Fabulous location for families, groups of friends. The Chalets have everything you need and are very high spec.We didn't want to leave ! Many thanks to Ita for ensuring our journey down was flawless and for providing info on the locality
We had a great week staying in Ballyorgan, love the setting, the houses and the area around it. Will defo be back and will recommend to friends. Thanks Ita for your help.
Had a great experience in Ballyhoura holiday homes. I was pleasantly surprised at how well the place was equipped. Everything you could ask for and more. I couldn't recommend the place enough. I'll definitely be back.
Ita is a wonderful lady! Although we were not technically staying in one of the holiday homes she represents, she nevertheless ensured that we were safe and warm until our hosts arrived (2 and a half hours later!). I am delighted to read so many glowing comments about her - she really is a treasure, and has clearly made a huge impact on many holiday makers. Thanks again, Ita! :)
I cant recommend these forest homes enough whether your mountian biking like we were, hill walking or just looking for a quiet time away. The homes have everything you need. Thanks Ita!
This was our second stay in the Ballyorgan...It is a fantastic base for mountain biking and the cottages have everything needed to make your stay as pleasant and as comfortable as possible...A special thanks to Ita for all her help and advice, we will certainly be back again!
Had a wonderful stay at the Ballyhoura forest homes this weekend. Comfortable, clean and very reasonable value! Thanks Ita we really enjoyed it!
We Had a great weekend in ballyhoura and a very comfortable stay in these lovely cabins , nice friendly people here and we will definitely be back to visit again , Thanks Ita Ps Looking forward to the upgraded versions later on or next year
Thank you Ita for your hospitality to a weary walker who crossed your path on a wet Saturday afternoon at the end of June. Rain does not take from the beauty of the setting or the warmth of your welcome. The coffee was great too.
Marian , Kevin ,Sadie and Francie,We stayed in Ballyhoura Forest Homes from 24th May to 27th 2011 We had a wonderfully comfortable stay and Ita Kiely was most welcoming and helpful. The area is really worth a visit and congrats to all concerned for making our stay so goodMarian Mc Morrow Monaghan
DELIGHTED YOU HAD A GREAT TIME - WE LOOK FORWARD TO WELCOMING YOU BACK. BALLYHOURA FOREST HOLIDAY HOMES
We had a fabulous stay in the Ballyhoura Forest Holiday Homes last weekend. The accomodation is very comfortable and the location is beautiful in the middle of the forest.
If you were considering a visit to the area I would recommend these holiday homes.
We (6) stayed in the Ballyhoura Forest Holiday Homes for the Ballyhoura Walking Festival and we will be back - great walks with the Ballyhoura way literally on the doorstep and waymarked walks in every direction. The houses are very comfortable with everything you could want. Even though we were in the lovely forest it was still only a five minute walk to the Pub. We visited the food festival in Kilmallock and enjoyed the sausages, cheese and jam. See you soon Ita. Regards, Catherine
We recently had a fortnight's holiday at the Ballyhoura Forest Holiday Homes. It was our 2nd stay there. The forest around the houses is perfect for cycling, walking and running. There's lots to do for kids. Our 9 year old took his bike, played in the forest, made dens, went to the wooden adventure playground & zip wire, played football on the nearby pitch, and generally spent almost the entire holiday out of doors.
The houses themselves are spacious, clean and with a traditional Irish peat fire, very warm.
Ita was always on hand to help with any queries, and to offer local tourist advice, and is a great advert for Trident.
As it was our 2nd stay there, we re-visited some of the places we'd enjoyed previously. Clonmel, Limerick, Tipperary and Cork are all within easy travelling distance, but the beautiful scenery on the doorstep, meant that most of our time was spent exploring locally.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR GREAT COMMENTS - WE LOOK FORWARD TO WELCOMING YOU BACK AGAIN SOON. Ballyhoura Forest Holiday Homes.
I was staying with a few friends over the weekend. We had a great time and the house was totally comfortable. We are definitely coming back for another weekend!Thank you very much!
We stayed in the cottages in April they are ideal for a family with plenty of space and well laid out. The beds were comfortable and we really enjoyed the break highly recommend them the loacation is great.
A Great place to locate for the Ballyhoura International Walking Festival! May 5-7th 2012 it is great for families or the more serious walker! Used them last year - must get organised!!!!
Had a great stay in Ballyhoura Holiday Homes recently just at the foot of the Ballyhouras. Magical indeed. We especially enjoyed the stroll down to the local pub in the adjacent village! We will be back and probably bring friends next time!!! It is a hidden treasure for Mountain Bikers, Walkers and Hikers alike!!! Thank you Ita!
THANK YOU MARGARET - COME BACK AND SEE US SOON - BALLYHOURA FOREST HOLIDAY HOMES.
From the sound of silence, of the birds and of the cows into our very comfortable roomy home in the woods to the exhileration of the mountain biking and and zip wire, to mixing with the locals at the Patrick's Day parade and in the Village Inn, we all had a great holiday. Will be back.
A group of 9 of us stayed here for the weekend. The homes are amazing and have everything you need in them. Its a great place for a break away, long walks, cycles and much more. We booked a taxi and went into Mallow for a night out. It was great. Would definitely recommend and will be going back!

Fantastic weekend, great location and awesome lodge. All mod cons, will defo visit again. loved the open plan great for games of twister. not to mention our own playground on our doorstep.. zipwire rocks
This is a great base for mountain bikers - very short drive to the Ballyhoura trail head.6 of us came down for a long weekend - less than 2.5 hours from Dublin. Great big living area, a big hall with loads of space for all the gear and good sized bedrooms.
Ita was very helpful and friendly.
Ben from Dublin
We would definately recommend these cottages. The location in the trees is lovely but not isolated. The mountain bike trails are nearby and the countryside around is great for walking too, The houses are very comfortable and Ita the superviser is a great asset to the place. We will return I hope.
Our group of 29 rented 5 cabins for a 3 night weekend in August 2010.
We were very pleasantly surprised at the quality, layout and equipment in the chalets.
Ita Kiely was very welcoming, helpful and efficient. She helped make our stay relaxing and enjoyable.
It is an ideal venue for families or grouops.
