A friendly hotel which was conveniently located for us to attend a wedding nearby. Our room was absolutely enormous and more like a suite so if you can ask for room number 112. The breakfast was not the best we have had in Ireland with packaged croissants rather than fresh ones. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful so I... More

I have reviewed The Adair Arms favourably before but on this visit I was very disappointed. The service was excellent as before but the food was terrible. We asked if we could have prawn sandwiches and soup. The prawn sandwiches weren’t on the menu but it was no bother to make them which was good to hear... then they were... More

I booked out 9 rooms here as I was having my wedding in the galgorm. The Adair arms is more affordable and more central and only 5 minutes away. So we had a pretty large group of family and friends here. All of whom were very happy to stay here and pretty much had the run of the place. There... More

We got married here three years ago because we loved the hotel, the staff and the food. We had an amazing time and the wedding co-ordinator Iris couldn't do enough for us and allowed us to have the more flexible conference menu rather than the wedding one. We have had many other meals after this both Sunday roast type and... More

Once again we chose to eat in the Adair Arms Hotel. This was a family gathering including two teenage boys! As usual, the food was excellent, service was outstanding and the waitresses were friendly and helpful. My family (over from Scotland) were most impressed and very disappointed that they hadn't managed to book their accomodation there.
