I visit this spa every month and enjoy 3 treatments, lunch and relaxation facilities as part of the FLO package. A wonderful way to spend a few hours. Beautiful decor, spotless, very welcoming, great staff, stunning views, amazing treatments - especially hydrotherapy bath, delicious food and great value. Highly recommended.

I spend a lovely weekend in the Ballygarry House Hotel last October. I could not ask for better, they facilitated all our needs. The nicest thing was having the use of the spa after returning from a hike.

I've stayed at the Ballygarry House twice this year and I have to say it is simply amazing. To say its a 'home away from home' doesn't do it justice. The service levels, the quality of the food, the friendliness of the staff and the quaintness of the hotel & surroundings are second to none. The first time I stayed... More
