Mountain View Ballyhale Co Kilkenny

As lock-down projects go, what the O'Neill family have done on their 120-acre Kilkenny farm is epic by any standards. Siblings Bee O’Grady and Michael O’Neill are the driving forces behind the aptly named third generation enterprise, which enjoys a truly rural setting in rolling hills with wonderful views across miles of the region's famous farmland. Originally their parents’ farm – and opened as a golf course 30 years ago – it now offers an astonishing range of experiences, including an alternative wedding and events venue, a boutique (dog friendly) glamping village, a (seasonal) weekly farmers' market and a panoramic restaurant, The Greenhouse, where well known Head Chef Rory Nolan (recently of Kilkenny’s former Anocht restaurant) creates beautiful seasonally led menus showcasing local produce. Sustainability is at the heart of everything they do here, and what a gem of a place it is.
