Beautiful setting, quiet, peaceful and is truly a working farm with cows, calves and chickens. You are welcome to watch the daily milking and their son took time out of his busy morning to tell us about the calving process and the dairy business. Breakfast was outstanding with eggs from their coop. Highly recommend Ballindrum Farms!

A fabulous place to stay in a beautiful area of the county. The room was a really good size with a huge bathroom. The breakfast was fantastic and the general facilities just what we needed. The views from the house in all directions were stunning and overall the hospitality was perfect.
