My wife and I stayed here for a late booking mid-week 2 nite break in mid July this year. The main reason we picked here, I have to admit, was the give-away price we were able to get it for via the Pigsback site- less than half the normal price!
We would not stay in hotels so far out of the town centre- this one was around 1 1/2 miles from the centre of Ballina. That was really the only down side to this AA rated 4* hotel. We stayed B&B and also had a lunch one day. This was excellent value and really tasted lovely. The breakfast consisted of breads, meats cheeses cereals and a cooked buffet. Only problem was that there seemed to be only 2 staff working at the breakfast service and they seemed a bit over whelmed, especially on the 1st morning. But we didn't go away hungry which was the main thing.
Our room was quite large with a king-size bed, loads of storage space and a nice view to the rear of the hotel, overlooking the garden area.
On our second nite there was a local country 2 piece band playing in the bar which, while not to our taste, livened the place up especially when a lot of the local patrons started to jive around the impromptu dance floor.
There is a full fitness suite and large pool which patrons and outsiders can use attached to the hotel although we did not take advantage of these facilities due mainly to visiting some of the lovely bars in nearby Ballina!
The Hotel Ballina is really well located for exploring the history and scenery of County Mayo and beyond. Even if it is a €8-€10 ride from the town, I don't think that should put anyone off as the out of town location makes it a relaxing spot to stay for a breakaway.
