We were at a friend's wedding in this hotel recently. It's a nice small hotel so the only people about were wedding guests which is nice. The food was nice especially the starter and soup. The portions were generous. The staff were very nice I have to say. They were there without being in your face but were friendly and... More

We stayed here for a friend's wedding, yes it's in a lovely location and is very convenient for weddings taking place there, however quality and price do not match up here. Exceptionally poor shower in our room, old and unmaintained fixtures, fittings and decorating throughout.

We held our wedding here a few weeks ago and had an amazing day. I will begin with some of the issues we had with the venue, as advice for other couples and not to take away from choosing this hotel as a wedding venue: our main issue was that the colour of our wedding was pink/ coral but we...

Attended family do at Ballykealey Manor House last weekend. In the dining area you felt shot back in history as it was to live in the house at that time. Did not have a tour of the house but I,d say there would be great stories to tell. Lovely relaxing atmosphere and fantastic food with great choice. Would not mind... More

We had our wedding at Ballykealey Manor on Saturday May 17th. The sun was shining and the venue was in sparkling condition. From the very beginning we were delighted to have picked Ballykealey, and felt we had stumbled across a bit of a gem. The manor house is full of character, the bedrooms are all unique, and the lodges available... More
