Spread across 400, bright green, undulating acres, this country house in rural East Cork looks straight out of central casting. People come for the on-site restaurant—which features a menu derived from Ballymaloe’s gardens and greenhouses—and also for its proximity to the Ballymaloe Cookery School & Gardens. You can sign-up for an afternoon of making canapes and finger foods, or more intensive, multi-day course on baking or mastering fancy versions of pub food.
