Arrived at this hotel without a booking for the restaurant and was told we would could have a table in an hour. So we had a drink in the bar. we were served by a woman called Nuala, and we have to say she has to be one of the most pleasant people we've ever dealt with . Nuala is... More

Stayed overnight on a business trip. I think Ballygarry is 4 star but the staff made it a 5 star experience. I was truly looked after from the minute I set foot inside the door. The food in the restaurant was good with the dessert stealing the show. The best part of my stay however was the spa visit, I... More

Did not stay at the hotel but did eat in the bar area. Bar staff are friendly and welcoming. Seating is comfortable. Good menu choice from daily lunch specials to set menu. We had both starters and main courses (different dishes) - all was beautiful. We cleaned our plates, no leftovers. Pricing also reasonable, 2 starters, 2 main courses, 1... More

Stayed here with a 3 year old at the weekend, the room was lovely, staff welcoming, breakfast good and the restaurant excellent. We ate in it on the Saturday night and they were great with my son, so much so we ate in it the following evening even though we had a big journey ahead of us. A lady with... More

We have stayed a few times in this hotel and its really fab. We often eat in the bar if we are in Tralee and the food is always lovely. Nuala, a waitress that works in the bar deserves a special mention. She always has time for a quick chat, she's great at recognizing regular customers. Although she has time... More

Our third visit to Ballygarry House Hotel and still it never disappoints. From the the food to the staff, it outshines many 5 star hotels we have I stayed in previously. Treatments in the Nadur Spa are top class and never feel rushed like other Spas, the only downside would be the lack of a pool to go alongside the... More

After a long day of driving on the left and stopping to sightsee along the way, this hotel with large, comfy and gorgeous rooms was a welcome respite. The dinner in their restaurant was very good and the dining room staff could not have been nicer.

Overall great hotel, just inches away from excellent. The room was huge, easily the largest hotel room I've been in. The bed was excellent, and lulled us into a deep sleep. Room was quiet and the black out curtains worked perfectly. The staff at every point was exceptional. The drawbacks are few. The shower pressure and temperature was not consistent.... More

Attended a wedding here and the food was of a very high standard. I had monkfish and it was excellent and I was even offered seconds. Decor very warm and hotel has a very relaxing ambience. Nice walkway adjacent to hotel if you want to burn off some calorieshaving over indulged on the lovely food.
