Lovely atmosphere, gracious and professional staff. Accommodation is very pleasant indeed and very comfortable. The food was delicious. The portions were spot on. If we wanted a big bag of chips or plate full of mash with a lump of meat I wouldn't come to such a refined establishment. We had the testing menu and the amount of food filled... More

The hotel is in country period style, friendly, homely and comfortable. The lounge and bar are welcoming, furnished with antiques and books. Our bedroom was huge and the king sized bed very comfortable. We loved our own gas 'log fire' in the chilly evenings, and the bathroom with stand alone bath and separate shower. A full length mirror and a... More

What a special spot. Could not have been happier with the accommodations, unique, quiet, beautiful rooms and bathrooms. We felt special and it was luxurious. We ate dinner on the premisses and everything was first class and creative. The chef came to our table to ask about the food, his presentation was an added delight. Recommend you not miss this...

From the moment you walk into Ardtara it is like being welcomed into someone's home. Valerie shakes hands with you and somehow remembers your Christian names for the entire stay! Room was homely in a genteel way but had everything required for a good stay including a working gas fire if required. The food was delicious and extremely well presented.... More

Great house in lovely grounds. recently has seen some investment allowing a good clear-up all round since our last visit. This was very welcome. We were on a bit of a tour round and this was the most expensive stop on our trip. We were very well looked after throughout our stay. we were the only guests and the atmosphere... More

....Or at least has the potential to be - the Destination Dining experience Northern Ireland has waited for. Everyone who knows me, knows I love our regular jaunts to Northern Ireland. Everyone who knows me, knows I love good food. When both merge into a wonderful 2 night break - it's a definitive bonus. Having read about the numerous recent... More

As a party of four, we reserved two rooms for dinner, bed and breakfast (July/6/2015). Both rooms; one a superior and the other a standard room were beautifully furnished with period furniture and decorated accordingly. The ambiance in the dinning room was one of luxury, with low lighting, candles and wood panelled walls. The service was excellent and attentive. However,... More

Having stayed at the Ardtara twice last year, and both times having an excellent experience, I was looking forward to a repeat performance. The hotel, the staff, the rooms were indeed excellent, Valerie is amazing! The food was disappointing, our table chose the beef and duck dishes, they were both tough, slightly cold, and the vegetables, Jus etc... poorly presented.... More
