“Absolutely Fantastic !”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

Mount Falcon is just fantastic ! The staff can not do enough for you. The food is wonderful and the hotel is set in lovely countryside, some lovely walks even just around the Estate itself.
Lovely pool area.
Fantastic plush rooms that are huge.
Would absolutely recommend this hotel and definitely would like to come back and stay again.

Fab time here overall but .... overall price for the weekend was good but the cost of small items like bar food, tea coffee etc was very high. Rooms were really high spec - as good as I've stayed in- , lovely pool area, nice walks in the grounds etc. Overall we had a lovely time, what actually put me off was the encouragement on check out to write a review on Trip Advisor, complete with written instructions on how to do it. This was! Overkill, which is why it's getting a 4 rather than a 5 rating. Let the product speak for itself - don't go overboard encouraging people to write about it on Trip Advisor!

Mount Falconis a beautiful manor house, setting amazing, stunning autumn woodland walks. Walking in to the large hall with beautiful peat fire brings an immediate sense of calm. We arrived before 3pm and had to wait a little while for our roooms which was no hardship, sitting in beautiful palour style room having great coffee soaking in the views. Our room was big, comfortable, every thing you might want,beds amazingly comfy. Dinner was hit and miss, starters poor, my fish main course was beautifully cooked. What really lets this hotel down is the service, trying to catch someones eye when you needed something was a battle. It felt like they had a job to do and anyting extra was not in that description. Service really let the place down, pity.

We stayed at mount falcon on the weekend of the 16 th November and from the moment we arrived and went to the bar to revive ourselves after our journey we knew it was going to be magical! Dave at the bar was most welcoming and entertained us with great humour!
We ate in the wonderful kitchen restaurant and it was superb. The food was one of the best we have eaten anywhere . We must mention the exceptional clarkes smoked salmon from ballinacarrig. Also the mouthwatering twice cooked pork belly. Desserts were presented as works of art and the flavours did not disappoint!
The pool, the beautiful scenery and walks all helped to create an unforgettable weekend!
We will be back again soon!

Room Tip: Rooms 2&3 had lovely views and were on same floor as pool/spa.

We were at Mount Falcon for a wedding weekend. Service was superb and rooms were great value and extremely comfortable.

The restaurant food, service and extensive wine list were outstanding

Book any spa treatments early to avoid disappointment.

The only really minor downside and cause for discussion in the morning with friends was the breakfast. While the cold buffet spread was wonderful (and they should have left it at that), they misfired on all the kitchen-prepared meals like the full Irish breakfast and especially the Eggs Benedict where they forgot to drain the poached eggs before putting it on top of the bread. Even the porridge got poor ratings.

Again - whole experience gets a solid 5 and would absolutely recommend the property.

We spent a weekend at Mount Falcon for a friend's wedding (we didn't actually stay at the hotel but spent most of our time there). It really is a most beautiful location and has huge amounts of character and charm. We ate in the hotel on three occassions (twice in the bar) and were very impressed with the quality of the food and the friendliness & professionalism of the staff. We just wish we'd been able to stay over too!

We recently spent a few days at this exceptional hotel. From the moment we arrived to our departure everything was perfect. The welcome we received from a very professional staff was very wam. Our room was extemely comfortable and the food in the restaurant was to die for. Our waiter was excellent explaining in great detail the composition of each dish. We look forward to return visit
