Had a meal in the terrace bar, the staff were very welcoming & friendly. The service was excellent, quick & efficent. The bar food menu had a good selection of food. There were snacks or if you were very hungry there were full meals. We did not have room for dessert but the portions being served would easily have been... More

Had an early departure before their breakfast opened. They arranged a continental to be delivered to my room in advance of my departure (arranged the night before). Very nice touch. Good leisure centre, bar, restaurant. Staff outstanding. Be sure to take the short walk out to the Proleek Dolmen - there is a well sign-posted pathway to this.

Expecting a new baby soon, myself and my husband fancied a night away. We found this gem within an hour of where we live. Very easily accessed from the motorway, yet a lovely rural setting: the building is gorgeous. The staff were very welcoming, and within an hour I realised that it would have been no problem to have brought... More

Stayed here for two days on a recent business trip. Very nice place with very friendly and helpful staff in all areas. Room was very clean and bright. Could not really find a fault with this hotel. Very pleasant working stay.

I stayed at this fine establishment on business. On arrival I was met with a lovely reception it almost felt homely. The grounds and facilities are immaculate as are the rooms. The rooms are bright mine had a fantastic view (121) and again spectacularly clean with soft fluffy towels. I ate dinner and breakfast here, both of the highest quality... More

A group of us made a Sunday visit to the 'Ballymac' for a recent family event and enjoyed a very nice meal, in pleasant surroundings served well. The menu, at first reading, looked fairly standard and I chose the salmon, followed by the beef. The duo of salmon arrived and immediately confounded my expectations. It was well presented, tasted great... More

Stayed for 3 days beginning of May 2015 at this hotel. The food and staff were very good. The golf course was in perfect condition and Gerry the golf manager was very helpful. He even arranged for me to borrow a set of left handed clubs from the hotel gardener.

We had heard a lot about this hotel but were a little disappointed to say the least, we ordered two glasses of wine and were looking at the menu, it took the staff 40 minutes to come back to us to order food, it took 25 minutes for the food and at this stage we could have went somewhere else...

Stayed here with a large party of lady golfers - rooms & service excellent - golf course challenging but beautifully maintained parkland with interesting holes. Ate one meal as a bar snack with great service and second in a private dining room with silver service. Taste, selection & presentation of food great. Breakfast was again a well enjoyed hot buffet...
