Pleasant stay in Mount Falcon Estate. Lovely setting. Stayed in room called the Dugout. Not overly impressed with size of room but it is in the old part of the hotel. Bathroom though was lovely with separate bath and powerful shower. Bed quite creaky but comfortable nonetheless. Small free standing flat screen TV. Tea/Coffee making facilities. Dinner quite expensive 59 and 69 euro. Hired bikes to cycle around the Estate which was lovely but do take a map. Breakfast was just ok - served in a large room lacking in character and service was rather slow. Got good rate with online booking agent. Hotel quoted double that price.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Mount Falcon Estate lies by the banks of The River Moy ( the most prolific wild Atlantic Salmon river in Ireland ) between Foxford and Ballina ( The Salmon Capital of Ireland ). The Estate consists of a 4 star deluxe 32 bedroom hotel, 45 lodges, 2 miles of exclusive salmon fishing, a 3 acre rainbow trout stocked lake, 100 acres of mature woodland, a 3 km walking / jogging / biking trail, an Elemis Spa and Clay pigeon shooting. The house was built in 1876 and was a wedding present from one young groom to his new wife. The estate was originally owned by The Knox family who came to Ireland in the Cromwellian era and their ancestors are buried in the circular graveyard next to The Megalithic tomb. Opened in 2006 Mount Falcon was the youngest hotel to win The AA Hotel of the year. Head Chef Philippe Farineau and his team have achieved 2 AA Rosettes in the restaurant and in 2011 achieved The Best Hotel Restaurant in Connaught and The Best Head Chef in Connaught by The Restaurant Association of Ireland. ... more less
