My son had his wedding there in December 2016. I would give Ballygarry 100% for everything. They know how to make the couple and their families feel special. Well done. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone planning their BIG DAY. Keep up the good work

We were here for a friends wedding and the whole day was fantastic. As part of the wedding party, I thought the staff, in particular Tadhg, were very attentive needed and were a great help.

When to Ballygarry House Hotel for two days and nights on New Years Day. Had a great break, simply good food and a relaxing time. The two days were greatly enhanced by the weather. Very un-seasonal, just fantastic. The Wild Altantic Way (WWW) was looking great at least from Ballybunion Beach to Castlegregory.

The room was lovely and the staff were very friendly. Loads of space in the room, very comfy bed, huge bathroom with his and hers wash basins. Everything was spotlessly clean. Excellent breakfast in the morning, and as I was leaving the staff even made me a take away drink for the road.

We stayed in Ballygarry House Hotel & Spa for one night for a special occasion and it was fantastic. We had treatments in the Nadur Spa which were very relaxing before having dinner that evening. Staff were friendly and helpful. I wold recommend anyone that wants some luxury to visit.

I have stayed in Ballygarry at least once every year for the past number of years and it only gets better each time - we just love it - and the use of the spa area is a huge plus - so relaxing - Breakfast is sumptuous and nothing is too much trouble for the staff who are so friendly...

“Room 309 is in a quiet area, next to the Spa. Very comfortable. We had some challenges adjusting the room temperature downwards and the thermostat control seem to need a little maintenance. But that is a very minor issue.”
