My husband and I recently got married in this magical venue with beautiful grounds. We have often eaten in the restaurant in the main building and we were always delighted with the food and service. The service on our wedding weekend was great, the food outstanding and Lynn the coordinator was amazing. She paid great attention to detail and had... More

Beautiful grounds all around the hotel. Golf course will make this place perfect for golfers. Receptionist was nice and answered all questions with a smile. Lobby is nice and his nice chairs for coffee meetings or lounging. Modern Room was large and had everything needed. Air conditioning/heat, small soap, usual shampoo, shower cap, tea/coffee, iron, board, safe, extra pillows, plenty... More

Stayed here for a wedding. The hotel charges premium rates but does not give premium service. The staff are friendly and helpful but the rooms, while nicely decorated, do not have the usual touches you expect from this price range such as bottles of water, plus the shower in my room was woeful. Balyna House (separate to the main hotel)... More

Was here for a family wedding. I'll be honest and say I expected more. The place is woefully spread out. Apts, Houses, hotel, Old house and golf club. No interconnectors. Clubhouse half a mile from hotel. Reception in old house, walk back to hotel for dinner. Rooms in hotel were nice enough. Nothing special for what sells itself as a... More

Had a brilliant time at a wedding here! Great food and staff were really lovely. The setting is spectacular and would recommend for weddings or other party. Ballyna Houses beats your typical modern hotel ballroom for an intimate wedding. It's full of ambiance and great for photos!! Cottages are so nice... particularly the granite ones. Overall a great venue -... More

I was very recently at a family wedding at Ballyna House, Moyvalley. I thoroughly enjoyed our stay (2nights) at this beautiful venue. We were lucky to be staying in the bedrooms of Ballyna House itself which are fab. We had friends and family staying in both the cottages and the main hotel. All enjoyed their stay. I absolutely love the... More

We had our wedding reception in Moyvalley Hotel in July 2013 and I would highly recommend this venue for any couples tying the knot in the future. We had our drinks reception in Balyna House which was amazing; there was plenty of scones, cookies and bubbly for all of the guests and we got absolutely stunning photos in the house... More
