Booked a family overnight stay here in August 2014. What a disaster. We were very impressed when we turned into the long drives. We drove up to the hotel, looked a little tired and in need of some painting. Check in was very slow despite only 2 people in the queue ahead of us. Reception area dull and lacking. The... More

We checked in at the Breaffy Woods for four nights on 18th August 2014. On entering the hotel, there isn't much of a foyer or reception... More

We are a football team from Belfast called Glentoran who travelled down to the hotel on the Friday night, we didn’t arrive until 21:30 that night but the head chef was happy to keep the restaurant open...
