2:15pm - After the best 2 hours, spent with two gentlemen, I asked if we could walk back to the main house so I could take in the surroundings but because of a small river like puddle, Joe dropped us to the Boat house so we could walk the rest of the way, it would have been rude of us not to look into the wood covered Beach House before we went on our trek home so up we went, Joe opened the door and we were met with a ray of sunshine through the glass covered windows and doors that was reflecting off the river located directly in front/underneath the beach house. If you lay on the bed, you would think you were lying on the rooftop of a boat. With a standalone bath looking out onto the peaceful views, I wanted to rob Joes keys and throw both him and Paul out the door for the night!!
2:30pm - Paul and I walked through the estate admiring absolutely everything on our path from the old castle walls, the portcullis type gates, the concrete steps leading up to the abnormally sized manor and the empty space that was just for us. It was all so breath taking!
We finally got back to the car and we took off our boots (which were well and truly needed due to the bad weather the few days beforehand) and sat into the car, we drove out in silence just taking in all of the beauty one last time until we met Joes wife with the two little kiddos feeding the ponies through the fence but as soon as we got past the electric gates and back on to the mundane, everyday country road, we dissected the past 3 hours from start to finish.
I highly recommend the day we had but only if you are into the outdoors and are extremely competitive with your other half. I booked it via the website and Amy got in touch with me within 24 hours to secure a date and time. I will leave the link to book at the bottom.
In 37 years from now, when Paul decides to propose, you can be sure that I will be booking Ballynatray house for my Reception. Dreamy!
