Apologies for not writing a review sooner but I stayed here unfortunately for only one night I wish it had been longer. Bedrooms were spotless, check in was fast with friendly and efficient staff. Food was very nice both evening and breakfast time. Can't fault it. Nice staff clean room and good food. I will return again

We stayed here after a day exploring the Dingle peninsula. My only complaint is that we didn't get to stay here more than one night! With our itinerary, we changed locations (and therefore hotels) every night. This hotel was beautiful. The rooms and bathrooms were spacious. The grounds were so pretty that my dad went out and took pictures of... More

We spent two meals in the Restaurant whilst touring Kerry earlier this year. We only meant to eat there on one occasion but found the experience so good we jus had to reserve a table for a second time. The Scottish Restaurant Manger and staff made all the difference. We will be returning.

Stayed for two nights on a family break last week. Family Room was really spacious and comfortable. Staff are really friendly and helpful and interacted with the kids really well. The package was well priced and included tickets for the Aquadome and the Playdium which was great. To my real delight, the inclusive dinner in the rate was off the... More

during a recent trip to Ireland I dined at this fabulous hotel. the service was impeccable and the food was out of this world. I would definitely give it 6 stars out of 5 because it was that good. Would and will be going here again. They had an excellent wine selection as well.

If you would like to stay in a classy, country hotel with world-class facilities run by exceptional people, then stay at Ballygarry House.
