This was our first trip to Northern Ireland for a family wedding. We travelled up from Dublin and our first stop and encounter with the people of Northern Ireland was when we arrived at the Adair Arms, we received friendly and warm welcome and this continued through the whole four night stay, whatever role the staff were carrying out.

We stayed here this weekend, during a family wedding in the area. Whilst the hotel is somewhat dated and in need of a refurbishment, it was more than made up for by the friendliness of the staff. Each and everyone one of them were brilliant and the breakfast each day was second to none.

Went with my wife and mother-in-law for a lunchtime treat here as I am off for a few days and felt like something a little special. The menu was varied and suited our tastes plus the ambience of the place was tranquil and reserved; just how we like it. The staff were cordial, helpful and attentive and our order was... More

Not the dainty portions that you would expect from an afternoon tea. Did not reflect the description of the online list. The macarons in particular were (in my opinion) those that came from Lidl when they were on special offer...so although ok...were defiantly not what you would expect...I would have expected home made ones. The honey baked ham were more... More
