Been touring the West coast of Ireland staying in hotels, spent one night in this hotel. It's located just off a main dual carriage way and there's lots of traffic noise. By contrast with others hotels it's a big disappointment, the size of the room is tiny for the price charged (172 Euros). Heating controls in room don't work, they... More

The new Brasserie at the Ballygarry House Hotel is out of this world. Decor is amazing (need to steal some ideas for my own home), sculpted art piece and hand made hanging lights are super cool and very original, the little family touches throughout the new build and rest of the hotel are what make the Ballygarry what it is,...

Lovely hotel and great staff. I keep going back! Greatly improved from last year in terms of overall design. My bistro meal could have been better as the burger was over cooked but that did not spoil the visit.
