The historic and magnificent surroundings of the Ballywalter Park Mansion House, built between 1846 and 1870 and home of the 6th Baron Dunleath provide a truly different venue for those seeking somewhere special to hold their corporate or other prestigious event.
In past years, the glittering and spacious main reception rooms played host to grand house parties and Royal visits, with the Duke & Duchess of York – later King George VI and Queen Elizabeth coming to stay in 1924 and the Duke & Duchess of Gloucester in 1935.
Now these rooms adapt easily to the needs of those seeking to organise a corporate dinner, a conference, a product launch or an incentive event. Indeed the possibilities are endless.
Whilst we appreciate that you will want to come and see for yourself just what makes Ballywalter Park so different as a venue, here is a synopsis of what is on offer.
The immediate surrounding demesne extends to approximately 270 acres, with 30 acres of pleasure grounds around the Mansion House. The grounds provide a perfect location for corporate outdoor pursuits and the Ballywalter Park team will be glad to offer advice and make arrangements tailored to your particular requirements.
All catering is prepared by Lady Dunleath and her in-house team, whose ethos is to use produce from the Estate or from carefully selected local suppliers. The walled garden, with its ranges of Victorian glasshouses offer a wide selection of fruit and vegetables throughout the year and the Farm & Estate provide beef and game in season. The freshest fish and shellfish are acquired direct off the boats at the nearby Ballywalter and Portavogie harbours.
The menus are complemented by fine vintage wines from the House cellar stocks of 3,000 bottles, purchased en primeur, at auction with Sotheby’s, or direct from vineyard owners and negociants in France & Italy.
For those seeking an overnight stay, Ballywalter Park offers 9 double and 2 twin bedrooms, each with its own en-suite bathroom, and one further double bedroom with a private bathroom.
Naturally, clients will have exclusive use of the Ballywalter Park Mansion House during their stay. A policy decision has been made to decline wedding receptions and casual dining/overnight bookings, thus to further enhance the special nature of this magical place.
Every event is personally supervised by Lord & Lady Dunleath who would be delighted to offer you a tour of Ballywalter Park and to discuss and advise on your requirements.
