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

We were not planning to stay at this hotel but rearranged our vacation plans near the end of our two week stay in Ireland. We decided to drive from the north towards Dublin, our last stop, but stop an hour or so before we got to the city. We were so glad that we decided to spend a night at... More

We stayed here as part of a tour of Ireland. It is a very comfortable and well appointed hotel with lovely grounds. The service is good overall, and the staff friendly although as part of a tour group we were made aware that we were perhaps slightly lesser mortals than other guests. However we would go back to this hotel... More

I've used the Ballymascanlon for business and pleasure for many years now. When it came to my daughter's wedding I encouraged them to make a visit. They had the reception booked within 30 mins of their first visit. 2 weeks ago the wedding took place and everything went like clockwork with grateful thanks to Niall, Eileen and the complete team...

Just returned from our marriage ceremony and celebrations and we can't wait to go back! The grounds are amazing, particularly the rose garden at this time of the year. All the staff were so attentive and pleasant to us and our guests. Everyone at the wedding mentioned how great the staff were. All our meals, from the wedding to breakfast... More

This place is well set up for weddings. The casual visitor may find that the focus is on weddings and service can be sporadic. Nonetheless they are Irish and friendly which makes the whole experience warm and makes you want to come back. Rooms were of a high standard.
