The Perfect Stop Between Car Travels: Ballyvaughan


Ireland’s Ballyhoura Mountains are one of the best destinations for driving vacations. Its beautiful landscape and fresh air make the car drive very refreshing and calming, while the many historical and cultural sites in the area are only reachable by car. If you are traveling through Ballyhoura Mountains by car, Ballyhoura Forest Park is a perfect place to stop for the night. These marvelous homes are found in the heart of the forest in the middle of the Ballyhoura Mountains. This quiet retreat is very near the village of Ballyorgan, which is just within walking distance. However, there are more activities available in the village of Kilfinane, and hiring a car makes that equally accessible. It is just a two mile car drive away, and there are plenty of shops, traditional pubs and restaurants to choose from. The houses are ideal for families or couples who love nature and want to experience Ireland’s old world, rustic charm. Aside from hiking and picnicking, you can indulge in bird watching. They are also an excellent base for touring Limerick County and Cork City, which are quickly accessible by car travel. Limerick City is just a 20 minute car drive away; here, you can find a lively nightlife and some great shopping. The houses have three bedrooms each (two twin bedrooms and a family bathroom) and can house six people. The dining and kitchen have complete amenities such as microwave, cooker and dishwasher. There is also a washer/dryer, TV, music cassette player, radio and open fire. Outside each house are picnic chairs and tables and 2 large barbeques at each end of the forest park for the guests’ use. Bed linen and towels are provided. If you are planning to travel through Ireland by car, you can approach a number of car hire agencies within the airport before heading towards the Ballyhoura Mountains. The people at the car hire agency or at the hotel desk can assist you in planning your car travels and provide maps and brochures.
