Welcome to a character property with a charm all of its own.
"Luxury Bed & Breakfast accommodation for the discerning guest"
Ard na Ciúin, (“Quiet Heights”), nestled into the foot hills of the Knockmealdown Mountains, is set in 15 acres of private grounds within Ballyduff Glen. Its elevated position affords magnificent views of the Glen, the Blackwater Valley and beyond.
Ard na Ciúin is very homely and family run, but this doesn't mean we are amateurs! With years of experience, working in many aspects of hospitality and function catering, we pride ourselves on providing a warm welcome, lovely food, great customer service and above all, great value for money.
We are fully open from the 2nd of January to 31st of October for all accommodation and courses. Outside of this period group bookings will be taken by prior arrangement only.
We provide a top class service, with some facilities you might only find in a 5 star hotel !
to guests for leaving great comments in our guest book and especially to those whose reviews on Tripadvisor helped us to achieve a
Certificate of Excellence for 2012!
With our continued hard work and your comments we aim to achieve the same high standards this year.
At Ard na Ciúin you are surrounded by nature, prompting the description of 'Tranquil, Wild Beauty'. Long sunny days are followed by stunning sunsets, rivalled only by ‘soft’ days with magical rainbows. Early morning mists often rise up through the Glen heralding warmer weather and creating a truly enchanting start to your day.
Falcons soar in the skies above whilst summertime swallows dip into the pond to drink. Venturing out of the adjacent forest, wild deer may be seen in the surrounding fields, along with hares, foxes and if you are lucky, the occasional badger!
Ard na Ciúin offers spacious rooms with full en-suite facilities, including fully adjustable power showers, ample hot water and purpose built shower cubicles, so no climbing in and out of a bath or fighting a clingy shower curtain!
All beds have sumptuous pillow top matresses. This, combined with crisp and luxurious linen, ensure that your stay, long or short will be comfortable.
Our rooms are equipped with colour televisions with radio facility and DVD players as well as hairdryers and tea and coffee making facilities. All rooms and en-suites are serviced daily (unless otherwise instructed). Freshly laundered towels and bedding are always available on request.
For families with young children we can offer a room with an additional bath.
Free unlimited Wi-fi is available for guests with enabled laptops, phones etc.
Ample free parking is provided.
Our Boot Room is available for guest's fishing, hiking gear etc. so no need to worry about any damp clothes or muddy boots when enjoying your holiday!
Laundry service is available, as is a free iron and board.
Warm clear evenings can be spent relaxing on the veranda overlooking the ornamental pond or on the raised terrace, stargazing - all too easy due to the absence of light pollution.
On more chilly nights, with its log burning stove and comfortable sofas, the guests' lounge is the perfect place to relax, unwind or maybe plan for tomorrow’s outing.
For those seeking relaxation, peace and quiet, Ard na Ciúin is the ideal place to stay.
