National Biodiversity Week Ireland 2023
National Biodiversity Week Ireland 2023 Ireland runs from 19th to 28th May.
We are always trying to improve our biodiversity here at Ballyvolane House and we have around 20 hectares of woodland and four lakes which provide pristine and safe habitats for birds, red squirrels, amphibians and pollinators. We preserve and protect these biodiversity friendly habitats and we have created some new ones too. We have added some waterfowl nesting tubes (see photo above) to our lakes which provide safe nesting boxes for moorhens and mallard. We have also recently sown 4.5 hectares of winter bird food (mix of spring wheat, linseed, white mustard, phacelia and oilseed radish) which will sustain and feed an abundance of our resident songbirds throughout the winter months. We have erected numerous bird nesting boxes and bat boxes around the estate too. We also planted 300 native trees last year.
Bertha at Ballymaloe May Fair
Bertha’s Revenge Gin has taken a stall at the Ballymaloe May Fair over the weekend of 12th, 13th and 14th May. We have been to the Ballymaloe May Fair ourselves as punters in the past and it is a fantastic day out for all the family. The event is located at the stunning Ballymaloe House with incredible food trucks, workshops, cookery demos and a dizzying array of stall holders selling all sorts of curiosities from antiques to Irish crafts to artisan gin. Come and have a gin-wag with Justin who will be there throughout the weekend. Justin will be sharing Bertha tipples and the ‘full herd’ of Bertha’s Revenge Gin will be on sale.

Home from Home Travel Auction in aid of Ukraine
Last chance to bid or donate to this worthy cause. Auction ends at 7pm on Sunday, 1st May.
Home for Home is a travel auction, offering participants the chance to stay in some of the world’s most beautiful and exclusive homes, with all proceeds directly benefiting much needed aid relief efforts in the Ukraine. The brainchild of of our dear friend Josephine Ryan, author, interiors expert and stylist, the collection comprises 30 properties located across the globe, many of which are not typically available to rent. Homes listed include Neuendorf House, a design-led Mallorcan villa created by world renowned architects John Pawson and Claudio Silvestrin and Thyme, the much loved 31 bedroom bolthole found in the heart of the Cotswolds.
With opening bids starting from £500, the auction provides a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience some of the world’s most spellbinding properties. Josephine is hoping to raise £50,000; all proceeds will be donated to the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC), which allows the added benefit of a pound for pound donations match, courtesy of the UK Government.
