Due to pressure of work for my husband, holidays of more than a week or 10 days have had to take rather a back seat over the last year. So when our plans for a long haul trip were shelved recently, we compromised on a couple of long weekends and so we made our second visit to Ballynahinch this year. We were just looking to be able to relax in comfort and enjoy some good food and drink. Ballynahinch ticks all those boxes with style!
We had a suite, in fact the same room as on our last visit No 41, (Derryvickrune!)
The room is lovely (detailed description in my review earlier this year.) The only disappointment was that the wi-fi (free) only seemed to work in the bedroom and not in the sitting room.
We were extremely lucky to have dry weather and were able to get out and visit our old haunts.
Our 4 night stay included dinner in the restaurant on 3 evenings. (We ate in the "pub" on the other evening.) We always forget just how good the food is in the restaurant! The Saturday night was perhaps one of the busiest nights we've experienced there, and unsurprisingly the service was a little slow. I was keen to have the local lobster featured on the menu, but unfortunately, although it was listed each evening, it wasn't available.
Breakfasts were, as always, fantastic.
All in all a lovely relaxing stay, the perfect place to recharge the batteries!
