Dining options

All meals, snacks and coffees are included in the room rate and a wide choice of dining options is offered in delightfully elegant surroundings. Should you choose, the day at Ballyfin can be centred around truly outstanding gastronomic experiences – from a customized breakfast to a delicious lunch of your choice and onwards into the evening with a bespoke dinner.

Guests hiking, biking or simply relaxing may opt for a traditional, gourmet picnic hamper to enjoy in any location across the grounds, or select an al fresco meal on the terrace of the main house.

The cocktail hour is back at Ballyfin, ushering in dinner where you may choose from the grandeur of the State Dining Room or the intimacy of the Van Der Hagen Dining Room.

Alternatively, something simpler can be served in the Library, the Bar or in the magical, sun-lit Conservatory. Downstairs private dining can be arranged in the Porcelain Room lined with the famous ‘Flora Danica’ set of china or in the atmospheric Wine Cellar. (pre-booking 24 hours in advance required for private dining).  At Ballyfin the architectural splendour of the rooms and their historical resonances combine with the food to make for truly memorable dining experiences.

Guests dine at individual tables unless a preference is expressed to dine with other guests.
