Full of character and charm, this 18th century country house was built in 1727 for the Famed Agriculturalist, Sir Arthur Young, by the Earl of Kingston. It is situated on the edge of Mitchelstown (a vibrant country town). It is a family home and its newly-refurbished courtyard is home to exceptional guestrooms and private relaxation area and now available for bookings along with a functioning farm specialising in Organic Venison & Wild Boar.

Bringing his expertise to The Wild Boar Spit Roast will be no other than Pat Mulcahy of Ballinwiillin House. Pat Mulcahy and his daughter Sheena from Ballinwillin House and Farm near Mitchelstown have a herd of 800 deer, 350 wild boar, 150 goats and 40 beef cattle. The produce from his organic farm is sold online, mainly to the UK and Europe, and into hotels and restaurants around the country. All the processing and packaging is carried out on the farm so what goes out is a finished product. The produce from the farm is also served in the B&B.
