We had the pleasure of having our wedding at the mill last week and we had an absolutely amazing day from start to finish. It was relaxed and fun, exactly what we wanted for our day. What a beautiful venue, all of our guests had a fantastic time and all remarked on how great the food was, particularly the generous... 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

We stayed 1 night at Ballydugan Mill, while attending our nephews wedding and enjoyed the whole experience. There was a mix up over our booking, which was resolved by the owner letting us stay in his penthouse room on the top storey of the mill! The room was huge with a kitchen area, bedroom and bathroom, with so much character... More

We stayed at the Mill for an overnight for a wedding. The food was very good and above our expectations! The staff were also great. The venue itself is lovely and our room was good, a little basic perhaps and a bottle of water in the room would be a welcome addition. Great wedding and very good hosts!

lovely greeting when I arrived and Maureen is the queen of breakfasts! Wonderful hospitality for my 2 night stay. Minor quibble is lack of wifi/mobile phone signal, but in some ways that adds to the get away from it stay! :-)
