All around I would come back to enjoy a full weekend. The food for the wedding was amazing, the setting was perfect. The beds were so comfy as well as the pillows, would have loved to stayed in bed longer...The setting of the resort is beautiful and the tide went out forever.

We stayed at the Tigh-Na-Mara from July 23rd to July 27th. We were very happy with this resort. Although the rooms are dated and "rustic" they have everything that is needed. The staff are very friendly. We appreciated the great central location of this resort. The beach was gorgeous and the kids loved it. We ate at the Cedars Restaurant... More

This is a return visit for us as we thoroughly enjoyed last summer's vacation and we love the Canadian coast. We come for the serenity and enjoy to exploring the area like a local. This 'home-base' is clean, quiet and comfortable, with a double size jacuzzi tub and a kitchen/dining area. Our spacious log cabin suite sits 3 floors up... More

Our room was excellent, very large, excellent balcony, the jacuzzi tub in the room was a very nice touch as was the gas fireplace. The Grotto mineral pool was relaxing and the 90 minute facial was over too quickly. The view from the balcony was spectacular and the walk along the beach & out to the far away tide line... More

We have been to Tigh na Mara several times for special occasions (engagement, and stagette) and now love to go every summer with our young children. It is a special rustic and comfortable place on the amazing Rathtrevor Beach. This time we stayed in a cabin as they are dog friendly and brought our chocolate lab, Bailey who loves the... More

This resort has beauty and serenity. It is a place for all ages to have an enjoyable holiday especially with the diversity of activities offered. The beach with its spectacular bay cannot be rivalled. A family holiday here will always be an everlasting memory for children and parents alike. I would highly recommend Ti Nigh Mara.

We just came home from a week at Tigh Na Mara, this is our third visit to this resort in the past few years. We were greeted by friendly staff, and then our key to cabin 446, which is a two bedroom, perfect for us and our grandchildren! I must say that the resort is in need of repair, the... More

We went for the Girls Night in package, value was beyond exceptional. The Spa was amazing and the room was perfect. The beds were so comfortable! The Tapas was a wonderful experience. Just really wish the Breakfast Buffet was still available.

I've stayed here several times both on business and with friends and family and am usually very pleased however this visit left me with some negative feelings about our Spa experience. The explanation of charges was very confusing and unsatisfactory.
