Attended a conference at the Ballygally Castle hotel and had a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The hotel staff were attentive and friendly, the amenities added that extra touch of luxury and the location made it hard to believe we were working! Personal highlight of the stay…returning to the hotel room in the evening, hearing the sound of the waves and watching... More

While our stay at Ballygally Castle Hotel was almost a year ago, it remains uniquely memorable in nearly all the best ways. The history is fascinating. The grounds and the views are stunning. The layout of the hotel is functional and yet quirky and unique in some areas. It is a great retreat, a lovely place to escape, and works... More

We stayed in the newly refurbished Ballygally Castle hotel for a weekend and had a wonderful time. The room was extremely spacious and comfortable, the bar and restaurant were excellent and the gardens were beautiful. All staff were courteous and helpful and nothing was too much trouble, including arranging bicycle hire at short notice and giving us the Ghost Room... More

We stayed over on Saturday night. The hotel was busy with a wedding. We booked the tower rooms after reading the history. I The photos on the website were deceiving and we found the room very small.
