I just wish that every bad or mediocre hotel that I have ever stayed in, would send their managers to the wonderful Slieve Russell hotel in Ballyconnell for a masterclass in how to run the perfect hotel. I stayed with my wife and 2 little girls for 2 nights on the 5th of Feb 2012, and boy am I glad... More

Just back from a two night stay. Rooms comfortable and overall the hotel is very well kept. Food throughout could not be faulted. Took avail of hydrotherapy spa facilities. Fantastic way to relax. Nice walk around the golf course. Golf course was frozen both days so can't comment on this. Will return again soon.

The Slieve Russell, Ballyconnell will cause you to "oohhh" and "aahhh" as soon as you drive through the gates and into the most wonderfully manicured and well kept grounds of this beautiful hotel. With ample parking, (without a multistory in sight), and views that go on forever, I can highly recommend a visit. The staff, in all areas, are most... More

Stayed for 3 nights with my husband, and I can't complement the hotel highly enough. The Food is excellent in both restaurants, the bar serves a nice light lunch menu. Staff were excellent, professional, helpful and friendly. Wonderful spa. Lovely tranquil location with nice grounds and pleasant walks. Great for a relaxing break.

Excellent 2 night stay. Beautiful food, fabulous grounds,spa and hydrotherapy suite was amazing and staff just a complete pleasure to deal with. Honestly, we couldn't recommend it more and looking forward to a return visit very very soon!!!! It's a complete credit to Sean Quinn and his family for establishing such a beautiful hotel in this area.
