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

Myself and 4 girlfriends stayed in Ballygarry for an overnight spa break last weekend and had a really nice time. The spa was great, I opted for the pregnancy massage which was excellent and just what I needed. The other girls all enjoyed their treatments & the relaxation room & thermal suites were lovely. We had some food from the... More

We stayed one night during our travels around Ireland. We would highly recommend Ballygarry House for so many reasons! First would be the service at the bar and lounge. We had such a friendly bar tender and server! They made us feel very welcomed. Second would be the cleanliness of the hotel- the main rooms, restaurant, bar area, mad our... More

Stayed for 2 nights at a rate of 144 euros for each night for 2 people bed and breakfast. Check in was friendly. Stayed in room 305. When we arrived there were cookies left which was a nice welcome. The sink in our room was blocked and we told reception. We ate in the bar. The food was nice. Michael... More

My husband and I stayed here last weekend for a friend's wedding. We booked into our room which was spotless, really comfortable, nice touches like bottled water. The bathroom had a bath and a shower, only minor issue here was the lack of good lighting for putting on make up. The gardens of this hotel are fabulous, especially at night... More
