Visit Ireland At Your Leisure

Our names are Richard and Bairbre Ball and we live in Johnsfort House, in Clonmellon,Co. Westmeath with our three young children. We are 'Ireland - At your Leisure'. What makes us different from other Irish tour agents, is that we want you to stay here at our farm AND we will chauffeur you to all the places in Ireland you want to go. Richard is an exceptional tour guide with years of experience. We have the stunning Bartholomew's Loft or the beautiful Marianne Cottage for your stay. We are ideally and centrally situated in The Boyne Valley (one hour from Dublin). This means we can easily reach most of the world famous sights in Ireland as well as lesser known but no less impressive ones, in a leisurely day trip. From the moment we collect you, your Irish holiday begins, at your leisure.

Guided Tours of Ireland

Tell us where you want to go. Let us know what you want to see. Do you love wild, windswept cliffs or do you prefer the majesty of a castle or do you love to pull over anywhere and take lots of photographs? Maybe you love to shop til you drop! What about the distillation of whiskey or gin...any interest? Are you on an ancestry trail? Maybe you just want to be brought to the places in Ireland that we love the most. We want to give you the tour that you want so you own it! Tell us what it is that you would like to do or see and sit back, relax and let us take you there, at your leisure. Come home in the evening to your beautiful farm accommodation where you can stroll around and see the animals or sit outside on the patio and watch the glow of the sunset.

The exposed stone walls, limestone hearth and deep blue painted walls are just some of the features of this beautiful cottage. Across the courtyard is Bartholomew's Loft, an upside down space, another fabulous place to stay in the heart of The Boyne Valley.
