Spent one night in this hotel at the end of our holiday in Ireland.Comfortable rooms and lounge bar serving food in the evening. The hotel is next to a golf course and set amidst some beautiful gardens which we enjoyed a stroll through in the morning after breakfast. Only minor criticism would have been the lack of staff on reception... More

A family of 4 overnight break. The family rooms are a good size and staff very friendly and helpful. Pool and gym facilities adequate for a short break. Food served in the bar is lovely, but very slow. Nice breakfast and wonderful grounds. Recommendation A beauty spa offering some pamper sessions would be a great addition to the Hotel services...

We stayed just the one night at the Ballymascanlon on our holiday in Ireland and wished it had been far longer. Although the hotel was very full of guests it never felt packed or uncomfortable. Our check-in was smooth and easy and all the staff we met were of a high standard. We had a light supper on room service... More

I stayed at Ballymascanlon House for the first time on the 10th of August 2015, my first impressions and my overall view of the hotel were particularly good. The hotel and all of the public areas were immaculate, the food, service and total experience will definitely see me returning over the coming months.

This fabulous hotel is located near the Irish border and so you can visit both the North and the South very easily. The large comfortable rooms set in wonderful gardens were a delight. The very nice meals in the spacious dining room were tasty and filling after a day's sightseeing. We particularly enjoyed an early morning stroll to see the... More
