The Ballance House EHOD 2022

Lisburn Road, Glenavy, County Antrim, BT29 4NY
Balance House

About

It was the birthplace of John Ballance (b.1839) who went on to become the 14th Premier of New Zealand (1891-93). The Ballance House was restored in the early 1990s. There is a new Exhibition 'The Ulster New Zealand Story' which engages visitors in an exploration of New Zealand and the extraordinary contribution Ulster people, such as John Ballance, made to its development. The Exhibition also includes an unusual collection of Maori exhibits, historical documents and artefacts including a recently gifted Maori Doll (with special feathers) from Amanda McLaren, of F1 McLaren fame.

Afternoon tea will be available to enjoy.

Tours available hourly.
