First time in Ireland, we attended a friends wedding, we stayed for 2 nights, arriving Thursday night, we had an enjoyable meal (curry for myself, steak for my wife), the plates were clean when we finished which tells a story !! the staff were very friendly, I would definitely stay there again..

I stayed here a few months ago and the only complaint I had was the lack of wifi/mobile reception. I wanted to update this to state that mobile reception is available on the 5th floor (I was on the 3rd before I think), so the higher you go, the better it gets. Hospitality is fantastic - and even if I... More

I was at my friends wedding and was booked in to stay at the mill. I was very disappointed. The bathroom in my room had the most disgusting smell. I couldn't even use the bathroom due to the smell and had to use another rooms bathroom to get washed. The walls between my room and the next were very fine... More

I attended my nieces wedding at the Mill at the end of August. It was a delightful experience from start to finish. Maureen and Noel made us feel at home immediately with a wonderfully warm irish welcome full of irish good humour and fun. The buildings have been beautifully restored and the bedrooms spacious and full of character. Our hosts... More

I had the pleasure of attending a wedding at the Mill at Ballydugan and was so pleasantly surprised at the intimacy of the venue, the amazing food and how sweet the staff were. Despite being in the sticks they were so accommodating at ensuring we got taxis home! Would definitely recommend the Mill, especially for the food!

The setting of this restored 19th century mill is absolutely incredible. The mill itself is restored to the highest standard both inside and out. The layout is perfect to offer a bespoke wedding package that quite honestly cannot be beaten in the 'value' for money stakes. The venue offers a first floor 'drinks reception' whilst the guest and wedding party... More

Absolutely fantastic venue for a wedding! Would Highly recommend this place. The staff were excellent and the food was delicious with very generous portions. The fact that the sit down meal and disco are on separate floors is a fantastic idea and guests can move straight to party after the meal. Very reasonable bar prices which also make it a... More
