About Ballymaloe Grainstore
Rory, son of Myrtle Allen, is first and foremost a farmer but always had a passion for music. As his son, Darren, took more responsibility for the farm Rory had more time to give to music. He started organising music weeks in Ballymaloe where he would invite musicians to play to guests in the drawing room. This led to the dream of building a venue suitable for music concerts but being right next door to Ballymaloe House and Restaurant it also made sense to have a building suitable for weddings, corporate events and parties.
