This is a three star hotel and as such lives up to that standard. The rooms, at least the one I was in, are very good and can't be faulted. The breakfast was just OK. Limited choice but I had the mini Irish which was nicely cooked. The big plus for this hotel is the location -right bang in the... More

Having known the location of this hotel but not having stayed before I thought that it would be good. Excellent location and service. Wonderful food in the hotel restaurant, in fact, one of the best Beef Strogonoffs I have ever eaten. It must have been the Irish beef. In addition, the staff doing the rooms and in reception could not... More

Stayed here for two nights during a tour of Southern Ireland. Had a wonderful stay, all the staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. Beautiful setting on the river. Clean and comfortable rooms. Good food too, what more could you ask for?

Stayed over one Saturday night. Had to loop around a couple of times due to Ballina's one way system but found the hotel fairly easily. No room in hotel car park but found a space right outside and that was free due to our arrival being after 6pm on Saturday. Decor was fairly drab but the room was clean, bed... More

Stayed here one night in June while on a fishing trip in the area. A little disappointed not to have hotel parkins as spaces were full. Not too problematic as it was a weekend and I had parking on the street, however one likes to have the security of a hotel cark park. The biggest bonus was my room which... More

We stayed at the Ballina Manor for 5 nights at the end of May and had a thoroughly enjoyable week. The room, which overlooked the river was very spacious, clean and well appointed. The hotel is ideally located in the centre of Ballina which suited our requirements very well. The car park was a little tight at times but we... More
