We all have too much “stuff” but you can never have too many beautiful experiences. 

Our Tours are a great gift idea, something cool to do on holiday or even as a group outing. They will assault all of your senses with appley goodness.

Ballinteggart House is nestled in the beautiful orchard county of Armagh- a place known for its superb craft cider. Come and see how our multi-award-winning Armagh Cider is made from ‘Blossom to Bottle’ on our farm where the Troughton family have been growing apples for more than 100 years.

In 2019, TourismNI awarded our tour the prestigious title of NI Most Authentic Experience of the Year

The Orchard

Spring: Blossom

Arguably the most beautiful time of year in the Orchard.  The year’s crop depends on the weather when the blossom sets

Summer: Growing

You can see the baby apples grow and mature ready for picking in late August and September


Autumn: Harvesting

The busiest time of year for the Orchard – apples are all picked by hand and loaded into wooden crates to be taken to the cidery for immediate pressing – the very beginning of the cider making process.

Winter: Quietness

The Orchard is quiet, although trees need to be pruned to ensure a good yield for next year.  In March, new trees will be planted if required.  However, the cidery is busy – juice is fermenting, cider is blended and tasted – an exciting time for new cider for the New Year. 

Cidery & Bottling Hall

See where all the apples are pressed, fermented, filtered
and blended into our award-winning products. 

Then move on to the bottling hall where all our products are bottled and
packaged in readiness to be moved to an off-licence or bar near you.


Best time for a visit is from Blossom to Harvest
