Hotel is on the Main Street with no parking facilities. When we arrived we were handed the key to our room which had not been cleaned from the previous occupants. No tea/coffee facilities provided but a tray was brought to us upon request. The bathroom door had a large dent and the lock had been removed. The door to our... More

We stayed here after booking a Groupon voucher. It was horrendous from the get go. The room was very fusty & in bad need of a complete renovation. We had a meal in the "newly refurbished" restaurant, my partner's soup tasted awful like it had gone sour. The steak was very grisly. Breakfast was the only nice thing we ate... More

Spacious room and good sized bathroom. rooms could be a bit more heated in the evening and at night when it starts to get chilly. Dinner in the restaurant at the... More

Be sure to stop and eat at Strollers at the base of Ballybunion golf links. Absolutely the best restaurant in Ballybunion. The inn is updated and the proprietors are friendly and attentive. But really this is about the food. I've tried most of the restaurants in Ballybunion and this one is a Can't Miss! I highly recommend you eat here.

The hotel was clean and tidy, the staff are very friendly and helpful. However, this hotel is very basic. No ironing board or tea making facilities in the room. The bar and "restaurant" are apparently newly refurbished, although I did not see any evidence of this. The breakfast is very nice indeed, and for that alone it is worth the... More

Myself & my wife stayed for a weekend. The room on the 3rd floor was in clean/good order. The TV was not working in the room, so we advised the lady on reception at 7.00pm on the Friday and she immediately offered to change us to another room. We said we did not wish to move. She said that a... More

Misleading to start off with Brandon Golf Hotel sounds good... well it is certainly not. Hotel is old run down and very dirty, I couldn't bring myself to get into the shower so we headed to the leisure centre to shower there. The restaurant charges the same prices as the other surrounding places, when you walk in they are benches... More
