Now’s your chance to have an inside look at Ballyfin Demesne grounds

Ballyfin House

Ballyfin GAA are holding their annual 6k run/walk all through the breathtaking grounds of Ballyfin Demesne on Sunday, February 4 at 11.30am.

The route at the exclusive grounds begins just off the main avenue where it heads through the farm buildings and up to the Tower taking in just some of the 614 acres of Parklands.

The route will take participants along the front of the main House itself, before they turn down by the ‘caves’ before joining the walkway surrounding the lake.

Participants will then make their way all around the lake before climbing back up to the main avenue and making towards the finish line at the main entrance gate.

Due to huge interest, participants need to reserve their places onlnie and can do so by following the link here.

It costs €10 for adults, €5 for juveniles under 15 and €20 for families.

The event is baby buggy and stroller friendly and assistance dogs are allowed on the run.


There are amazing prizes to be won on the day.

The prizes are divided into male and female categories.

The prize for the first man and woman is €100, the second is €40 and third prize is €20.

The first prize for both a boy and a girl in the juvenile category is €30.
