Ballymote House was built around 1730. But its welcoming presence is truly timeless; a fact our guests soon realise as everyday cares slip away. This star of the County Down sits in the heart of a landscape shaped by mountain and lough.

Ballymote delights in continuing the best of that renowned country house tradition, informal and apparently effortless hospitality. We understand just how valuable our guests free time is with today’s hectic way of life

That’s why, from the moment you arrive, we make sure the outside world feels a world away.

Ballymote is as restful, or as relaxingly active, as you want it to be. Your only decision will be how you want to enjoy yourself next.

Not just a country house Ballymote is our family home. We are delighted to extend its warmth to our visitors from Ireland and around the world.

Welcome to Ballymote House
