Outstanding hospitality
10 recent guests complimented Pamela for outstanding hospitality.
Overlooking the Blackstairs Mountains and gently rolling hills, the well appointed Lodge is set in a tranquil spot on the Slaney Valley. Spacious and comfortably furnished, the Lodge is popular with executives, families on holiday, and golfers playing at nearby Mount Wolseley. It's an ideal spot for touring South-East Ireland.

The space
The Lodge sleeps five very comfortably, with two ensuite doubles and a single. The peaceful, rural setting is enchanting. Surrounded by rolling green hills with a beautiful view of Leinster's Blackstairs Mountains, you are within easy touring distance of Wexford, Wicklow, Kilkenny, and Carlow towns. The famous Altamont Gardens, haunted Huntington Castle and brewers of the tasty O'Hara's Beer are close by.

French doors open onto a large lawn lined with mature beech trees. The fresh, sweet country air has encouraged guests to walk, jog and cycle around the leafy lanes and nearby woodland.

The Lodge is fully and comfortably furnished. (kitchen, bed & bath linen, etc) and breakfast starter pack (milk, bread, butter, eggs, coffee, tea, sugar) are provided.

We like to greet you and will give you as much guidance as you seek. Otherwise, we tend to let guests do their thing.

Guest access
You've got the house to yourself. There is lots of outdoor space. Guests have enjoyed picnics on the lawn, with lovely views of rolling hills and the Blackstairs mountains. Enjoy woodland and river walks along the River Slaney.

Other things to note
We discount our rent rate generously for weekly and monthly stays, but utilities are not included for those longer stays. Note that electricity can vary from €8 to €20+ for a week, and oil for the central heating is measured and charged separately. There is a timer for the heating, but nonetheless the cost of oil means that heating can double the total utilities charge.
We ask that all recyclable items are washed.
The utility room contains the washing machine and dryer. This separate room is shared with the residents of the adjacent house, who can access it from outside, so your privacy is maintained.

Location

Ardattin, County Carlow, Ireland

You'll need wheels. Most people prefer a car to a bike, as Ardattin is the nearest village (3km), with Tullow, Clonegal, Bunclody and Carlow offering a huge range of shopping, restaurants and other attractions within a 10-20 km radius. We are near the River Slaney with 3km of river beat and woodland for our guests to explore. Fishing (trout and sometimes salmon) is popular on the Slaney, from March-August - please enquire. Riding, golf (Mount Wolseley), micro-brewery, haunted castles (Huntington, Shankill), award-winning gardens (Altamont, Hardymount), and kayaking (via a local outdoor adventure company) provide a surprisingly rich and diverse set of activities for our guests - though many opt to curl up with a book and a cup of tea and enjoy the peace and quiet!
Please have a look at our Guidebook for shopping, eating, arts, culture, entertainment... We try to leave fairly current brochures about events in and around Carlow.

Welcome to Ballin Temple. We have been running the Ballin Temple estate organically since 1999, and we hope our guests love the place for what it is: an increasingly rare clean-air, clean-water (our cottages have their own artesian wells, and the water tastes wonderful) place to potter around and relax. Writers, teachers, artists, families, entrepreneurs and executives all seem to revel in the "slow holiday" aspect of the place. As an Airbnb guest myself, I know how important it is to create a home away from home for our guests, and make every effort to create a comfortable and practical space.

During your stay
We live a couple of km down the road and will be there if you need us. Usually our guests are there to have their headspace and tend to be great self-caterers.
