National Heritage Week 2023 Ballyvolane House

published by Justin Green in Events, News

As part of National Heritage Week 2023 which runs from 12th to 20st August 2023, join us at Ballyvolane House (the home of Bertha’s Revenge Gin) for our special National Heritage Week Open Gardens, Pop-up Café, Food Trucks and guided tours of the house and grounds on Thursday, 17th August 2023.

This year’s theme invites you to explore the traditions and practices, knowledge and skills passed down through generations. Justin will be giving a guided tour of Ballyvolane House and grounds at 1pm and 3pm.

Explore the glorious gardens and woodland walks. Our Pop-Up Café in the barn will be serving up Barista coffees from Maher’s Coffee Roasters as well as homemade cakes and pastries.

In addition to our own Pop-up Café, we are also delighted to have some food trucks with us this year from 12.00noon to 4pm. Volcano Pizza is back again and for the first time, we welcome ‘The Oven’ by our former House Chef Steve Mercer who will be serving up incredibly tasty vegetarian food from his converted horsebox. Visitors can also enjoy local craft beers, ciders, spirits with lunch including our very own Bertha’s Revenge Gin which is distilled on-site.

We will also have a Bertha’s Revenge Gin stall selling the full herd of Bertha’s Revenge Gin to take home.

Dogs are welcome too.

Opening times: 12noon to 4pm
