Recently visited Galgorm and as soon as you even arrive at the entrance you get a feeling of relaxation. Any time my fiancé and I book somewhere - it always ends up being Galgorm because nothing compares. The service is exceptional. Food, surroundings, cocktails, spa, river maine are just out of this world. I am coming back again at the... More
