Just recently celebrated a family event by having a meal in the restaurant and all I can say is that it was fantastic. We were so well looked after by the staff who catered for some slight off menu requests without any fuss and ensured everyone was happy with their food. Everything was superb and our group selected a wide... More

My husband and I stayed for 4 nights in March and it was wonderful. We have stayed a couple of times before but it seems they have raised the bar. Main hotel - reception, bar staff, restaurant, spa and other support staff friendly, professional, polite, helpful and cheerful; they cannot do enough for you. We had a room on the... More

Stayed at the hotel as we were going to a wedding reception nearby. The rooms were spacious and well furnished. Ate in the restaurant the night before and the food was excellent and the service throughout the hotel couldn't have been better.

Have visited Ballygarry a number of times on the spa package. Each time I visit I think that it can't get any better only to come back and find that in someway it has and our trip in March was no different!

Last minute booking made for Easter Sunday night... Check in was friendly yet efficient. I have to say it was one of the easiest checkins I have encountered. The room was large and nicely decorated (upgraded to a superior room - worth it). Breakfast was excellent. The Irish breakfast was of a very good quality and was in marked contrast... More

We decided to take a night away and booked a night away in this hotel at relatively short notice. We received a call prior to our stay to stay that it would be a complimentary stay courtesy of Ballygarry House. This was a great start but it got better.
