Worlds Away at the World-Class Ballyfin

If rest and relaxation tops your list before the upcoming holiday season, consider booking a long weekend getaway and visiting Ireland’s most exclusive hotel, Ballyfin. With daily flights from many major US cities to Dublin, it’s a hop, skip and a jump away to this heavenly property… and trust me, it’s worth it!

After landing at Dublin’s international airport, book a rental car and head towards the countryside to get off the grid for a few days. Be prepared to be brought back in time, and treated like royalty, when you check into Ballyfin. Ballyfin is located only an hour and a half away from the airport in a small village in County Laois, Ireland, yet feels worlds away from the hustle and bustle of the big city.

This past Thanksgiving holiday, my husband and I headed to the 20-room restored Georgian home for a bit of reprieve from tableside political talks and an overload of tryptophan from turkey, where we could indulge our mind, body and soul in unparalleled seclusion. Ballyfin is a place of serenity, romance, history and great natural beauty, providing an enchanting retreat from reality and an indulgence in old world luxury.
