We stayed here as part of a wedding party. The staff were very friendly and attentive to the needs of our daughter's dietary requirements (she was on first name terms by the end of the stay). Bedrooms were clean. There was no air conditioning in our room (however this will not normally be required in Northern Ireland :-)). The shower... More

While this hotel has been in existence for many years it has, probably in the last 8 years, been very tastefully expanded and upgraded. It is family run, where the staff are friendly and helpful and it sits on its own, very scenic and well maintained 18 hole golf course. Well worth playing. My wife and I stayed there with... More

I spent 4 days here with my boyfriend and I have to say it was sensational - the room was spotlessly clean and incredibly comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful at all times and the food was delicious. Couldn't recommend it stronger.

Ballymascalon is a great hotel. We have stayed here twice and are going again this week. It was perfect for a relaxing break with my husband. The rooms are always clean, inviting and breakfast gets a thumbs up!! Beautiful grounds and close to carlingford.

Took a 1 night break here early this week with my wife. Got fabulous value on a voucher received as a Christmas present. Main part of the hotel is an old style estate house that has character with a modern extension to accommodate bedrooms and function room. There is a golf course on the grounds and also a walking area... More

Stayed for a midweek two night break which we booked direct with the hotel with 1 night's dinner included. Our room was spacious with the added bonus of a terrace overlooking the tennis courts and we enjoyed a light lunch in the bar when we arrived. We ate in the restaurant on our first evening and have to say the... More
