After reading a few reviews, was nervous about heading to the Fairways ,but after dealing with the events manager Lynne to organise our christening party for today its a difo thumbs up and 100 per cent!
Our local balloon people let us down on the last minute a crowd from dundalk and that was disappointing and within 1o mins of arriving for our party the guys in Fairways stepped in along with Johnny in the Walnut Restaurant and popped some fab fresh flowers on tables,candles and pink napkins everywhere so we were not disapointed!
The food,starter ,main course,desert drinks and service all excellent ,everyone was thrilled and enjoyed their experience and the staff where so so helpfull helping us with extra requests even though they were so busy!Also booked a room there for some guests,39 euro!!excellent and not a bother with the room!
Lovley spot reserved down the back of the Walnut restaurant with the sunday sunshine shining in!What a great day and i would really encourage people looking for a great day out ,service and value for money to check out the Fairways Dundalk and what it has to offer and please dont be put off by comments from moaners!
Thanks again,Lynne ,Johnny and gang!x : )
William and Ursula and Baby Aoibheann!

We had our wedding reception here.It was a disaster from start to finish. The room were we had our meal was dirty, chipped paint on the wall. They moved our room the day of the wedding. We were promised the bridal suite and they gave it to another wedding party. Waited 10 minutes to get a knife to cut our wedding cake because surprise surprise the other wedding had that too, When they finally arrived with a knife it was a bread knife with tin foil wrapped around it..At the top table they forgot to add me on it so my father had to sit at the edge of the top table :O . They gave us the bridal suite a few weeks later but it wasn't the same... :(

My My My your honeymoon has lasted over 3 months . Your wedding was in June and you have decided to make some surprising comments now in September. If trip advisor will allow I will post your top table guest list written by you and you forgot to put your own name on it. We have three suits we use for the Bride & Groom all very similiar. When you registered a complant to us we responded with a free stay for you and your husband. You accepted our opologies and hospitatlity and thanked everyone here for making good your "complaint" You have not mentioned the FREE Rolls Bentley for your use and the Free Bridal Suite on your wedding night Oh and the Free Chamgagne Reception when you arrived in the Bentley As for the knife I dont think more comments are necessary do you ? I am so sorry, we cant win them all!

A friend and I stayed at the Fairways for one night as we had some things to do in Dundalk one morning and didn't want to do the early morning travel.

Although the girl at the desk when we checked in seemed bored and fed up with what she was doing I was very happy with the size of the room we were given, the bed was comfortable and everything you expect to see in a hotel room was provided (tea making facilities, shower gels, spare bedding etc.) We didn't eat in the restaurant or drink in the bar, not because it looked unappealing but we just weren't interested in it on that day.

I personally had a great nights sleep and the chap that was on the desk the next morning when we were leaving at 8.30 was lovely.

All in all I would say the hotel is slightly dated decor wise but for the rate we paid I was pleasantly surprised. There were quite a lot of people around the night we were there and I did overhear one lady talking about her dinner in the restaurant and she only had good things to say!

I would definitely recommend the Fairways for an overnight stay!

Just arrived back from travelling Ireland on business, and one of our stop over nights was at The Fairways Hotel. In truth we arrived there by default, because after reading Louise O's feed back on my iphone we went elsewhere, it was only because the first two we tried were full we called at The Fairways. Very pleasantly surprised on arrival, and on high alert for any faults. All looked clean and tidy, and well presented, nice bar with live music, good choice of drinks and great Guinness (especially with a shot of port), even the barman had not tried that before, also a decent looking restaurant with good value for money meals that were very tasty indeed. The rooms were plenty big enough with all the facilities, they were clean and tidy with a good size bathroom, and more than quiet enough for a good nights sleep. Overall, very pleasantly surprised, especially after reading earlier review, situated a little out of town but in my opinion that's why its probably one of the best value for money hotels in the area. We would definitely recommend and stay here again, and by the way, we met Manuel, really nice guy and love your sense of humour, keep up the good work and thanks for a pleasant stay.

we stayed at the fairway last weekend for 1 night on the way to belfast, the reception staff was very helpful and polite (Male) although it was late when we booked in , the room was very spacious and tastefully decorated and non smoking as requested. the corridors that led from the old part of the hotel to the new part smelt of smoke and could do with painting.
the breakfast the next morning was beautiful all the food you could eat and the overnight stay was great value for money. On checking out the next morning the receptionist was very polite and friendly . Well done keep up the good work. Would have no problem in receommending this hotel ,
