Welcome to Ballard Farm Holidays. We provide self-catering accommodation in two of our converted farm buildings set in the beautiful and tranquil landscape of Co Wicklow, Ireland.

The Granary was originally used as a grain barn and still retains many unique features. Conversion adaptations include full wheelchair access, with a downstairs twin bedroom and bathroom, and large sliding doors that lead out to a private patio where stunning views extend across the Wicklow valleys.

El lugar

La granja de Ballard, que mira hacia el suroeste en un hermoso valle de Wicklow, ha sido sostenida por Michael y Denise Sloan por más de cincuenta años. En los primeros días la granja crió y manejó un rebaño lechero jersey y más tarde cambió a ovejas y labranza. La granja está situada a un kilómetro de la carretera, con una gloriosa avenida bordeada por bulbos de primavera y árboles maduros. El corral tiene un diseño de patio tradicional con la parte trasera de la casa de la familia frente a los establos de enfrente, flanqueado por Swallow Barn (originalmente para el ganado) a un lado y el Granero (originalmente un granero de grano) enfrente. En ocasiones hemos tenido alquileres conjuntos de las dos casas para dar cabida a las reuniones familiares y grandes celebraciones de vacaciones para que la situación de las dos casas funciona perfectamente. Los motivos sustanciales, en y alrededor de Ballard Granja, son una delicia para los jardineros. Debe otorgarse todo el mérito a Denise Sloan, cuyo toque verde creativo y natural es evidente por la espectacular variedad de flores y perfumada floración a lo largo de todas las estaciones, incluyendo un huerto productivo, un huerto y un prado de flores silvestres. El gran jardín compartido es ideal para la relajación, el juego y la sombra con el manzano antiguo como anfitrión de una serie de cuerdas de la selva, columpios y hamaca entre las ramas de hojas. Desde la conversión a la auto-alojamiento de dos de los principales edificios de la granja, Swallow Barn y The Granary, ahora tenemos muchos visitantes regulares y siempre disfruta de conocer a nuevos huéspedes. Ambas casas están abiertas todo el año.

Ballard farm, facing south west into a beautiful Wicklow valley, has been held by Michael and Denise Sloan for over fifty years. In the early days the farm bred and managed a jersey dairy herd and later changed to sheep and tillage. The farm is situated a full kilometer from the road, with a glorious avenue edged by spring bulbs and mature trees.

The farmyard has a traditional courtyard design with the rear of the family house facing stables opposite, flanked by Swallow Barn (originally for livestock) to one side and The Granary (originally a grain barn) opposite. On occasion we have had joint rentals of the two houses to accommodate for family reunions and large holiday celebrations for which the situation of the two houses works perfectly.

The substantial grounds, in and around Ballard Farm, are a gardeners delight. Full credit must be given to Denise Sloan, whose creative and natural green touch is evident by the spectacular array of blooms and sweetly scented flowering throughout all seasons, including a productive vegetable garden, orchard and wild flower paddock. The large shared garden is ideal for relaxation, play and shade with the old apple tree as host to an array of jungle ropes, swings and hammock amongst the leafy branches.

Since the conversion to self-accommodation of two of the main farm buildings, Swallow Barn and The Granary, we now have many regular visitors and always enjoys meeting new guests. Both houses are open all year round.

Disponible para huéspedes

Los huéspedes son bienvenidos a disfrutar de la granja y gran jardín compartido, que es ideal para juegos de pelota y correr. Barbacoas están disponibles para las dos casas con muebles de jardín al aire libre para relajarse y disfrutar de los sonidos y la tranquilidad del campo. Los huéspedes pueden recoger huevos del gallinero y fruta de temporada del huerto y de los setos. Tenemos una yurta de 12 pies que reside en el paddock de flores silvestres en los meses de verano. Esto es particularmente popular entre los niños que tienden a reclamarlo como su 'den' sin embargo, si usted tiene la suerte de ser permitido en, es un espacio encantador para leer un libro, dibujo o simplemente cerrar los ojos para una siesta de la tarde. Hay un pequeño estudio de serigrafía en lo que originalmente era la sala de tack. Esto es utilizado en gran medida por Denise y Stephanie Sloan sin embargo, si usted está interesado en la impresión de algo de su cuenta tiene una charla con Denise que el tiempo lo permite es muy feliz de ayudarle. Una gran actividad de día lluvioso para los niños. También recientemente adquirió una rueda de alfarero (manual) y los huéspedes son bienvenidos a darle un ir (todavía estamos aprendiendo nosotros mismos!)

Guests are welcome to enjoy the farmyard and large shared garden which is ideal for ball games and running around. Barbeques are available for both houses with outdoor patio furniture to relax and enjoy the sounds and tranquility of the countryside. Guests are welcome to collect eggs from the henhouse and seasonal fruit from the orchard and hedgerows. We have a 12 foot yurt that resides in the wildflower paddock in the summer months. This is particularly popular with kids who tend to claim it as their 'den' however if you are lucky enough to be allowed in, it is a lovely space for reading a book, drawing or just closing the eyes for an afternoon snooze.

There is a small screen printing studio in what was originally the tack room. This is largely used by Denise and Stephanie Sloan however if you are interested in printing something of your own have a chat to Denise who time permitting is very happy to help you out. A great rainy day activity for children. We also recently acquired a potters wheel (manual) and guests are welcome to give it a go (we are still learning ourselves!)

Atención a los huéspedes

Michael y Denise Sloan viven permanentemente en la casa principal. La agricultura es un trabajo de 365 días y siempre están en el sitio si usted tiene alguna pregunta o le gustaría saber más sobre la vida agrícola. Son muy acogedores y han estado recibiendo a los turistas durante más de 30 años, con muchos invitados regresando año tras año. Ofrecemos elementos esenciales para la cocina, incluyendo un desayuno continental al comienzo de su estancia. Esto incluye cereales, pan, mantequilla, jugo, té, café, leche, huevos frescos y por lo general una olla de mermelada casera o mermelada si Michael Sloan no ha pulido de la última olla!

Michael and Denise Sloan live permanently in the main house. Farming is a 365 day job and they are always on site if you have any questions or would like to know more about the farming life. They are very welcoming and have been hosting holiday makers for over 30 years now, with many guests returning year after year.

We provide kitchen essentials for cooking including a continental breakfast at the start of your stay. This includes cereal, bread, butter, juice, tea, coffee, milk, fresh eggs and usually a pot of homemade marmalade or jam if Michael Sloan hasn't polished off the last pot!

Otros aspectos destacables

Todos nuestros animales son de campo libre en la granja. Además de las ovejas (aunque tratamos de mantenerlos en los campos!) Hay 3 perros grandes. Un perro de las ovejas del funcionamiento, un setter irlandés y un perro de aguas. Son muy amables, especialmente con los niños y me gustaría nada más que tener que ser mimado todo el día por invitados adorables. También tenemos un par de gansos que tienden a pad apagado juntos en un campo y una variedad de gallinas y pintadas.

All of our animals are free range on the farm. In addition to the sheep (although we do try to keep them in the fields!) there are 3 large dogs. A working sheep dog, an Irish setter and a spaniel. They are very friendly especially with children and would like nothing more than to have be pampered all day by adoring guests. We also have a pair of geese who tend to pad off together in a field and an array of hens and guinea fowl.

We really want you to enjoy your stay and hope you have the time to appreciate the beauty of our location as much as we do. We do not charge for servicing however we ask that the place is left as it is found. We do ask that guests do not smoke inside the buildings however their is patio furniture for both houses to relax outside. We do not usually permit pets due to the free range nature of our animals and especially around the lambing season (spring). We ask that guests observe the necessary general precautions around the farm especially in the working barn. As exciting as a tractor is to a young child we ask that they do not climb onto it or the stored hay and straw bales. We do have two rams on the farm who are normally kept separate from the main flock however they are introduced at certain times of the year and can be a little boisterous to say the least. For this reason we ask that guests do not enter the fields without prior consultation with Michael or Denise.

Denise and Michael were outstanding hosts. We arrived later than expected and Michael waited up for us in middle of the night. Air France lost our luggage and Michael and Denise coordinated the delivery so we didn't have to wait for the bag and could go exploring. Location is ideal; everything drivable and local castle a 15 min walk away. Letting our kids pick out fresh eggs for breakfast from the hen house every day was a big plus. We had sundowners on the porch and let the kids run around, Denise's grandkids even showed up to play once. Perfect, exactly what we were looking for

This place is an absolute Diamond. Located about 45 mins outside of dublin it is a very easy drive and very simple. Just being here makes you feel happy. It is located on a small farm in the country side. The house is exactly as described and very beautiful. When you wake up in the morning you look out over absolutely beautiful Irish rolling hills. It is about 10 minutes from the coast and close to a pretty cool looking castle. Very picturesque. The wifi works great by the way which was unexpected as it is so remote a location. Mary Denise and Michael are just a pleasure, they are so sweet and very helpful. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a get away, it is a vacation in itself.

We loved I all. The accommodation, the farm, the animals, the location, the view and last but not least, the welcoming hosts. We certainly hope to make it back; in the meantime we highly recommend Mary Denise, Micheal and their lovely farm to Wicklow bound travellers - they won't be disappointed.

If you might be looking for a 'farm' adventure stay, this is the place. Mary and Michael were wonderful hosts and made us feel at ease during our stay. The apartment had everything one might want including many kitchen condiments and other foods not normally provided by a host. The field in front of our apartment had 65 sheep, chickens and geese strolled by, and the three dogs were most friendly. We explored many of the small country roads in and around Wicklow and found many Irish delights along the way. As usual, the people were friendly and helpful. We recommend this rental highly.

BDon't miss this amazing adventure where you sip morning coffee looking at the rolling patchwork of greens and yellows in the valleys ahead which is past a tranquile pasture of sheep and their lambs (and when you look left there is a castle ruin in your sight). This is a working farm where you can experience as much or as little of the magical ambiance that nature offers! Stroll through the lovely gardens and cut flowers for your fully equipped home. Make sure and ask the host for a dinner recommendation ( Jack Whites - with free shuttle service) but for those of us who don't drive in Europe- the Sloans have a fabulous driver/tour guide ( Stephen) and a PLUS is his van is equipped (as well as Ballard Farms) to help with physically/developmentally challenged individuals! Ballard Fatms is a DO NOT MISS EXPERIENCE ( Jill B - Palm Springs , California, USA

Thank you Michael, Jill and Pat. It was a privelege to host you all. Air BnB is only enjoyable, in fact only possible if the guests 'join in'. You were the best, and encourage us to continue! I sincerely hope we may meet again. Michael and Denise
