Love this place. Really relaxed and friendly. The house itself is beautiful and the grounds are fabulous. Well worth getting up for a big walk around before breakfast. The facilities are great, bug pool, golf course and tennis courts. It's really close to Fitzpatricks pub and you can use the courtesy bus to get there and back. It's also quite... More

We stayed in the hotel on 1st January. The receptionist on arrival was friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious and clean. We went for a walk in the grounds before dinner and the grounds were very well maintained. The hotel was very busy it being New Years Day, staff at times were over stretched and we did have quite...

The family went to Ballymascanlon House Hotel on the 3rd of January. A short hop of 50 minutes down the motorway from where we live so very handy! Have been here before 12 years ago and loved it and glad to say not much has changed! We arrived early so room not ready but we went straight for a swim.... More

The room was very large and comfortable, there is a very good leisure centre as well. Overall the hotel staff were very friendly, there are... More

Lovely hotel with fabulous grounds. We spent two nights B&B a family of two adults and two children. We found the hotel staff very friendly if somewhat over stretched at times. The hotel itself was clean and in a lovely setting. The room we were in was clean and spacious. One slight disappointment was no complementary bottled water in the... More

While the hotel is nice we had a few glitches including having initially no heating in the room ( a problem which was resolved) and the bath water was brown but the shower was fine. Also a taxi to nearby Carlingford(15minutes journey) cost €28 even though the receptionist had warned that it might be as much as €23. Nice hotel... More

We recently had our wedding in the Ballymascanlon the weekend before Christmas and it was flawless in their part. We had been at weddings before but the moment we sat down to talk to Niall 18 months ago we were certain it was for us. The day before the wedding took our mountains of stuff of us no bother. Even...
