Be sure to stop and eat at Strollers at the base of Ballybunion golf links. Absolutely the best restaurant in Ballybunion. The inn is updated and the proprietors are friendly and attentive. But really this is about the food. I've tried most of the restaurants in Ballybunion and this one is a Can't Miss! I highly recommend you eat here.

Myself and the Hubby stayed here for 2 nights (Fri & Sat) at the end of August. Room was basic but clean and comfortable. Breakfast on both mornings was lovely. We had any evening meal on the Sat and that was also lovely - great steak :). The staff in the hotel are really friendly and overall it was brilliant... More

The hotel was clean and tidy, the staff are very friendly and helpful. However, this hotel is very basic. No ironing board or tea making facilities in the room. The bar and "restaurant" are apparently newly refurbished, although I did not see any evidence of this. The breakfast is very nice indeed, and for that alone it is worth the... More

Myself & my wife stayed for a weekend. The room on the 3rd floor was in clean/good order. The TV was not working in the room, so we advised the lady on reception at 7.00pm on the Friday and she immediately offered to change us to another room. We said we did not wish to move. She said that a... More

Misleading to start off with Brandon Golf Hotel sounds good... well it is certainly not. Hotel is old run down and very dirty, I couldn't bring myself to get into the shower so we headed to the leisure centre to shower there. The restaurant charges the same prices as the other surrounding places, when you walk in they are benches... More

We ate in this restuarant last week, as we had a dining voucher. Not impressed. The restaurant itself is not in any way luxurious, with booths and tables with ugly oilcloths on them. Our starters were quite nice - chicken and mushroom vol au vent,( vol au vent itself could have been fresher but with the sauce was ok )... More
