We have stayed & eaten in this establishment many times over the last ten years but on my visit for a meal in July I was disgusted and shocked to see that a hotel of this rating had the audacity to serve long life cream on deserts.( I had the waitress check this with the chef) To me that spells...

We have just arrived back from a 3 night family break. The hotel itself is lovely, best location/view, overlooking Pollan bay. The staff were very friendly, helpful and really happy to help. We stayed during a mini heat wave and we were offered a fan which was promptly brought up, plugged in and turned on by a really helpful member... More

We had out wedding reception here at the end of June 2014. As you can imagine, we were pretty nervous about the big day, but these guys had everything under control! Loads of our guests have since complimented the venue, the food, the staff, the pool, the view and the hotel in general. I suppose if we're nit picking, we... More

Stayed at the Ballyliffin Lodge from Fri 11th July - Mon 14th July and enjoyed it very much. We had booked a superior room at the front of the hotel as these rooms don't suffer as much from the noise from the function room if there are weddings (there were 2 weddings during our stay). The room was large and... More

Stayed here based on positive reviews. Nice hotel , friendly staff but a bit noisy, centered around a busy bar with adjoining restaurant. Food is fine. Likely a big hit with young families as seemed to be the case for the majority of guests. I would not go back but seems to be the best hotel option in the area... More

We stayed at the ballyliffen for a wedding in June and the hotel was fantastic! The staff and the food was next to none. It was out friends wedding and the day went without a hitch. The weather and location is beautiful. We will be back for a break in the near future!
