We just recently got married (Monday 4th May 2015) and had our wedding reception at the Ballyliffin Lodge and Spa Hotel. I really cannot put into words how amazing the day was and this was due to the hard work of the hotel staff. They were so friendly and attentive to myself, my husband and more importantly to our guests.... More

We visited the hotel for afternoon tea as a birthday treat for my mother, everything was perfect from the location, to the food, to the professional and friendly staff. Would definitely recommend it. A personal thank you to the staff who couldn't have been nicer and were very attentive even though the hotel was extremely busy.

The view on arrival is peaceful and tranquil, on checking in we were met by a friendly receptionist, so after we checked out our well appointed and spacious room we went back down for the wedding.
