Stayed twice, once for a "getaway", the other times after functions. Called several other times for a bite to eat.

This place is absolutely lovely and great credit to its owners and the team who run it. I would very highly recommend it for a "getaway" place, situated out in beautiful countryside within easy reach of the beaches in the area, or for an unusual venue for meetings or the like. As for weddings, I cannot think of a better place. A relative of mine attended a wedding here and said it was one of the best she was ever at. having been in Ballydugan Mill, I can see why.

We had our wedding reception in Ballydugan Mill on Saturday 3rd August and as the title says, it was the best day of our lives. On the run up to our wedding, the staff at the mill were amazing, I was dealing with Maureen in particular and she was an angel, helping me with anything I needed and nothing was ever a bother to her. On the day, the mill looked spectacular, there is no other wedding venue like this in Northern Ireland, its got so much charm and character. My guests were warmly welcomed by the staff and all commented on the relaxed and informal nature of the venue. The food was delicious, everyone cleared their plates! Bacon salad, roast beef and yorkshire puds, followed by Bailey's cheesecake - all fantastic! The service of the food and drink was excellent and done with military precision!
The party at night was rocking! and the good times and drink flowed. A lot of our guests stayed over and all commented on the cleanliness and comfort of their rooms and all had a good nights sleep and wakened to a full ulster fry in the morning. All in all, I couldn't recommend Ballydugan Mill enough as a wedding venue, the staff make it very special and I will never forget all that you did for us. Thank you - Mr & Mrs Mason xx

Having just visited The Mill for the first time, viewing it on behalf of a friend as a potential venue for her wedding. We were given a very warm & genuine welcome by a girl, Anne, who was on duty. She had great pride in the building, and rightly so. Each of the three floors were very tastefully restored, they would need very little in the way of decorating. The stonework, exposed beams & open fireplaces made the whole building feel comfortable, homely, yet "special". We did not have the pleasure of having lunch as it wasn't open for catering today. However, if the building, beautiful grounds & the staff are anything to go by we will have a treat in store on our return visit.

Room Tip: Bedrooms are not huge, but are spotlessly clean and look comfortable.

Attended a wedding here and was quite impressed. The Mill created a relaxed and intimate environment for a wedding. The food was really excellent tasty and hot. Service good and staff friendly. Think The Mill is ideal for a small quite informal wedding.

We had a fantastic day on Friday for our daughters wedding at the Ballydugan Mill. This is a wonderful venue and very homely. The staff are so helpful which made the day carefree and the food was delicious with excellent presentation. All our guests were very impressed with The Mill and I would highly recommend it.
