We had a short family break for a few days last week at the Ballygarry House. Service was excellent and all staff were very friendly with absolutely fantastic food as well as a beautifully appointed spa.

I stayed for 2 nights last weekend and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The staff at reception, the bar and the breakfast room were all very helpful and added to a great experience. I particularly enjoyed the Irish breakfast which, in my opinion, was cooked to perfection. The room was very spacious, clean and had everything required for a comfortable... More

This trip was booked for my birthday from my boyfriend and we added some spa treatments as extras. It was very easy to find and travel to. We were absolutely amazed by the beauty of the hotel and the grounds around it - really beautiful place and surrounding scenery. We were welcomed by very friendly staff and we were pleased... More

Stayed here for a couple of days last weekend. Room 401 or 402, I cant remember. Anyway, we were (it seemed anyway) directly above the wedding reception. The band were very loud, while this was ok when we attended the wedding, it was absolutely impossible to sleep the next night when another wedding was on. My sister got up and... More

Both myself, my wife and 6yr old daughter have just stayed there for a few nights. Very first impression is how ultra-clean the entire hotel is, spotless. Then you meet the staff, ALL of whom can not do enough for you but do so in totally non obtrusive manner which is an art in itself. We ate casually in the... More

Stayed here twice this year, first as wedding guests in April 2014; we loved it so much that we had to return for one night stay earlier this month on a trip around Kerry. Beautiful, clean, quiet hotel with fantastic staff and very spacious rooms. The bar food that we ate on the night of our visit was absolutely gorgeous,... More

We've stayed here a number of times. It's a marvellous hotel. So accept these 'observations' in the spirit in which they are given.They're not criticism as such,they're just meant to keep the Ballygarry people on their toes. We noticed a slight slippage of standards which new guests maybe wouldn't have noticed. Firstly we couldn't get 3 consecutive nights in our... More

We stayed at the Ballygarry House Hotel for two nights and couldn't find a fault with our stay. First thing we appreciated: the hotel is a five minute drive from Tralee center and just off a main road junction, but the setting is lovely and very quiet. Lots of parking space just in front of the main entrance, which was... More
