Ballyrafter House Hotel Waterford

Ballyrafter House Hotel, an unusually attractive country house, was built in the early 1800’s for the Duke Of Devonshire’s estate. We overlook Lismore Castle, the Blackwater River and the Irish Heritage Town of Lismore. Our wooded desmene snuggles into the foothills of the Knockmealdown Mountains.

“Michael Palin has made positive comments about the views from the old fashioned dining room”
Irish Times 2011

Ballyrafter is a great favourite because of its snug pub and excellent restaurant which features locally raised foods and fresh fish.

“A relaxing atmosphere, log fires and good home cooking”
Georgina Cambell, Chairman, Irish Food Writers Guild
