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...

The avenue leading to this hotel sets the scene lined with popular trees and a golf course you can feel the relaxation as you drive to the front of the house.

After a hard days work what a pleasure it was to walk into such a bright, clean and spacious room. i was a tad dubious when I realised it was a golf hotel (nothing against golfers you understand). They had no knowledge of our reservation with booking.com so thank goodness we had the vouchers close to hand. Where that ball... More

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.
