Just one word to describe Sunday Lunch, Excellent. Most efficient and friendly staff, superb food and pleasant surroundings. Certainly will be back in the near future. Lovely bar overlooking the gardens and golf course.

I was at a wedding on Saturday 4th October and have to say what a great day I had, friendly staff, lovely hotel and great food, what more could you want. The grounds are lovely too and well maintained.

We stayed in Ballymascanlon as stop over night on our trip around Ireland. From entering the Hotel grounds through the driveway , to taking a walk around the grounds, Ballymascanlon holds a lot of good childhood memories for me. And listening to the guests in the hotel they all appear to be returning customers for many years that hold many... More

Having spent out honeymoon here we decided to return for our silver wedding anniversary. Upon arrival we happily informed the reception about it being our 25th anniversary and we had honeymooned here 25years ago. The response we got was total indifference , not even a smile which certainly didn't make for a good start and we were very disappointed having... More

Spent one night here after being in transit for 20 hours from the U.S. We needed a place to rest before setting off on our Ireland trip and the Ballymascanlon is in a good position to get you out of the Dublin area, but not so far that driving a rental after a long travel day is dangerous. Our room... More

Just back from a golfing weekend with our golf society from Dunmurry. I've never stayed before and if I'm honest I had already had pre conceived ideas of what it would be like..which weren't good.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel last month, the driveway to the hotel is impressive and the hotel is of an old world charm. We went to the receptionist she was pleasant but when I asked to see the menu for the restaurant she said it wasn't printed yet so no menu end of. Our room was spacious... More

Had a great 2 day stay at this hotel. Rooms were modern and well maintained, staff was very friendly and helpful. Golf course looked nice though I sadly did not partake. Sundays are a madhouse there so the service in the bar for dinner was not as good as I would have liked, but I can understand as they were... More
