...because this place is so amazing, I'd rather keep it a secret. Lots of the negative comments in some of the other reviews are true (many more are not), but these people are missing the point. I agree that some of the staff could be friendlier and yes, some of the niceties you find in other hotel rooms at this price are missing e.g. decanter of sherry, fresh fruit, bath robes etc., but these shortcomings are more than made up for in the setting, the river, the walks, the amazing food and most importantly, the Guinness and oysters!
We've been to Ballynahinch 6 times now and it's become our Ireland getaway of choice. Pricey, but brilliant.
