Ballyfin house and its surroundings have a true charm. The decorative choices of the rooms, all different from each other, and the multitude of outdoor activities coupled with superb dining make this place a wonderfully unique traveling experience. The staff deserves great praise for its attention to detail and the impeccable service. An unforgettable holiday.

Spent only one night w/ my wife. Can honestly say that it was one of the most exceptionally unique and spectacular places we have ever stayed. Every single aspect of this destination is superlative. The staff could not have been either more friendly or professional. The resort truly feels more like a home, which belongs to a billionaire relative. The... More

Of the 104 reviews on Tripadvisor to date, 101 of 104 are "excellent". Here comes no. 102 of the excellent variety. It's not a hotel; it's more an experience, and what a fantastic one! Spent only one night here recently and that was scarcely enough to enjoy everything that Ballyfin has to offer. The staff are - without exception -... More

As all the other reviewers have mentioned and described, this is a gem. Come here to enjoy the serenity and the attentiveness. Come here to enjoy the warm fire and the hospitality. Glenn's tour is a great addition, and for sure explore the property in one of their golf carts. We spent two hours following the hotel map to every... More

We arrived here on a sunny November Saturday to be greeted by 4 of the staff on the front steps. Like everything else in the 'experience' this is not a forced or showy welcome, its just what they do! And do very well, Downton Abbey in all its splendour is what welcomes you here. Its like the Coote family have... More

Best Hotel I have ever been to! Great service. A relaxing venue. There is no need to get out of the hotel! All activities are available at the location. From golfing to horseback riding to getting your morning jog. The staff become part of your stay!

My fiancé and I are just after arriving back from one night in Ballyfin, and we were truly blown away. Completely, utterly, hopelessly lost for words as to how to describe our experience, but we’ll give it a try. First off, when we arrived, the team were on hand to welcome us and make us feel at home.

Ballyfin is the perfect place to dream of days and times gone by. I have never seen such a great hotel where you can experience pure luxury in a familiar atmosphere. The architecture and the interior design are amazing and breathtaking. The staff is also extraordinary (at the arrival four persons were waiting for us). It is the best hotel... More
