County Cork, Ireland
From the lively centre of Cork City, to the sweet tranquility of Mizen Head,
County Cork is a study in contrasts. County Cork is situated in the South West of Ireland,
it is the largest of all the Irish counties and in many ways the most varied. Rich farmlands
and river valleys contrast with the wild sandstone hills of the west, and above all there
is the magnificent coastline scooped and fretted by the Atlantic into great bays and
secret coves, strewn with rocky headlands and long soft golden sands. One moment you are
in the midst of a world-class shopping expedition, and the next, you are pausing to absorb
a spectacular seaside vista. All of which makes County Cork a unique and delightful area to
The Rivers Lee and Blackwater, flowing through gently Rolling Meadows to the sea,
will serve as your guide as you explore this delightful County.
While the lively arts and music culture will make your heart beat faster, the beautiful
scenery and world-class dining will give you plenty of reason to kick back and relax.
As Cork is the largest county and city in Ireland, there is certainly no shortage of things
to do and see.
Nestled in a 400-acre estate in rural East Cork, Ballymaloe House is only 20 miles
from the historic city of Cork, and minutes from the breathtaking south coast. It is a
renowned Irish country house hotel and restaurant owned and run by the Allen family
for over 40 years.
The estate is also the home of Ballymaloe
Cooking School, located in the middle of a 100-acre, organic farm of which ten acres are devoted to organic
market gardens, orchards and greenhouses. This means that our students can learn to cook using the finest
and freshest of ingredients. It also means guaranteed quality and variety. Plus, of course, it is
incredibly peaceful and beautiful. The school was founded by Ballymaloe House co-owner Darina Allen.
Darina is not only a teacher,
but a food writer, newspaper columnist, cookbook author and television presenter as well, alongside
daughter Rachel Allen.
