“Amazing Hotel”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

I am just back from a wonderful weekend at Mount Falcon. My family and I stayed here for my sister's birthday. My father is in a wheelchair and the facilities for him were beyond anything we have previously experienced, we couldn't have asked for more.
The hotel rooms are extremely spacious and the beds luxurious. The grounds are breathtaking, there is so much to see and do. We had to stop the car to watch ducks crossing the road and saw trout jumping in the lake to eat bread.
The food alone makes this hotel stand out, dinner was outstanding, it was a culinary experience. Service was excellent.

Stayed here with my daughter for Mothers day. The hotel and grounds are stunning. The rooms are beautifully appointed, with lovely views of the grounds. The beds are very comfortable.
The pool is on the small side, but we had lots of room as it was low season.
The restaurant is first class, with a varied menu. Good choices available for children, nothing was too much trouble. I would recommend this hotel most highly.

We spent 6 days at mount falcon and loved every bit of it. We stayed in hotel first night and the rooms were fab really spacious.. We moved into lakeside lodge for next 5 nights, I was impressed with the standard and the beds were so comfy.. The grounds are fantastic, lovely for early morning run, there is bikes to hire to cycle around the estate , not many if you have lots of kids do book them, the swimming pool is lovely for kids , has baby pool and the big pool is nice size.. The spa could do with a relaxation room before and after treatments..and more treatment rooms, they are very busy so book ahead..!!the food in bar is not great, the burger and chips we ordered didn't impress us, a few homemade fresh chips and a fresh burger bun don't take that long to russle up considering the restuarant food is so good,. The kids club was brilliant , on every day at no extra charge! The girls there were so nice.. We ate in restuarant 2 nights.book early to get the time u want.. Overall we had a great week at this estate the staff were so nice , the house itself is magnificent.. The lodges are perfect, great place for family, kids are very welcome here... 5 star standard, but none of the 5 star pretence!! If u want a relaxing getaway for two, or girly wknd, or if your thing of holidaying in Ireland with kids I would highly recommend this place.. It ticks all boxes.. We have already booked for summer... My little girl loved it here . Happy kids happy parents!!

As a special treat a friend and I spent two nights at the Mount Falcon Estate and there is no other way of describing it other than, BEAUTIFUL, RELAXING, WONDERFUL, AMAZING, etc, etc, etc. On arrival to be treated to freshly cooked scones, strawberry jam and cream with homemade biscuits a sheer delight. A early swim looking out onto the woods and daffodils on a Spring morning is a sight to behold. Breakfast is worth looking forward to, with so much to choose from, freshly cooked. There are many beautiful wooded walks to choose from around the estate. As for dinner it was a culinary delight with food presentation a work of art. The staff were fantastic and made our stay a very memorable experience. Mount Falcon is a must at least once in life ! Thank you all very much.

Arrived with my wife and 3 year old springer spaniel last Friday and stayed in their very comfortable courtyard cottages (which could sleep a large family) - really comfey beds and pillows. lovely top class dinner both nights and vino very reasonable, cote de rhone @ 32 euros. went fishing on the moy on the sat and while I caught nothing, spent a very relaxed 3-4 hours with muggins being the best fishermans friend a man could ask for. staff here are top notch and genuine, friendly and happy in their jobs. This hotel, the setting, the location, is now one of my firm favourites in the world....and I have travelled a fair bit. not cheap but sometimes you have to spend the extra few bob to get excellence.

Room Tip: If you have a dog, this is heaven as you can let them off the lead - no sheep!!

We stayed for 1 night and it was worth every penny and we will definitely return again for a couple of nights in the near future.

The hotel was set in amazing grounds and the level of accommodation and service was most definitely 5 * ! Large spacious bedroom with the comfiest bed and pillows ever. Lovely bathroom with big walk-in power shower, and good selection of toiletries, robes and slippers etc

Leisure facilities were an added bonus for my husband and son who enjoyed on both days, unfortunately, I was busy working so didn't get to use on this visit.

Mouth watering food, very tasty and cooked to perfection. Breakfast was also perfect (a little slow but worth the wait)

Would recommend to both couples and families of all ages, its a really nice hotel and well worth the price you pay.

Well done Mount Falcon keep the standard up !!

As part of our anniversary my wife and I stayed at Mount Falcon for two nights on one of their "packages" and can only but praise the experience. The majestic drive along the entrance drive way, set the scene for what was a very memorable couple of days. We were given the "Wallpool" suite which has to rate as probably the best and most extensive hotel accommodation we have ever experienced. Dinner was superb and served by extremely professional, but friendly staff. The hotel grounds and leisure centre were more than adequate to pass a wet Wednesday, and on the second evening we ate in the bar from a very adequate menu. This was a a most memorable experience and we may not wait for another anniversary before visiting Mount Falcon again.

Room Tip: Whilst the rooms in the main hotel have wonderful character, being in an old building means that sou...
