Charming hotel with beautiful grounds and a wonderful restaurant. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. The room was spacious, comfortable, and lovely. A walk around the hotel and gardens is a must. Loved this place. My only bad point about staying here is that it's not within walking distance to the city center.

We have stayed many times and it always comes up to high standards. The hotel is just wonderful. It is not a huge hotel, which is one of the reasons we love to stay here. The staff are very friendly and the food is fantastic. Well done Ballygarry House Hotel

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.
