We arrived on a bank holiday weekend and the hotel was hosting a wedding, probably not the best time for a quiet relaxing break away, on arrival the car park was extremely busy found it hard to get a space, arriving at 2.45 we were expecting to check in and relax in our suite (decided to go for this option...

It was nice reading the history of the hotel and it was very close to town. Room was great-the key will amaze you. Pretty location and great staff. Wish I had gotten an apot with the spa. Parking was easy and we loved our stay

Again we stayed at the hotel while visiting relations in Tralee, I like the hotel a lot but some items in the room could do with a little care and attention from the maintenance people. The service is great as is the food together with the breakfast and last but not least the bar itself which is great to relax... More

Stayed for 2 nights at the beginning of May and was pleasantly surprised. Beautiful, understated decor, large, comfortable bedrooms, the gardens are stunning. Ate in the restaurant the first night and in the lounge on the second night, both excellent experiences but what makes a hotel that extra special is the staff and they deserve full marks in Ballygarry. Would... More

I visited for two nights with my boyfriend. After long 4hour drive it was nice to be greeted with a friendly smile from a more than helpful girl in reception, I think Aine was her name. She was so helpful in telling us different things we could do in the locality. Our room was on the 2nd floor with a... More

We were attending a wedding at Ballygarry at the weekend and decided to kick off the celebrations early by heading down there the night before the big event. We had excellent massages in the beautiful Nadur Spa followed by a delicious dinner at Brooks Restaurant. The following day started off with an excellent breakfast selection before heading back to the... More

Will be back. Nothing u could complain about. Wonder fall experience. If only all hotels in Ireland could follow suit . Freindly and help full staff. The only draw back is you pay well for your comport.
