Back from my 2nd trip to Ballygarry House Hotel & Spa...and I wasn't disappointed this time around either. From check in to check out, I was amazed by the food, staff and atmosphere at Ballygarry. While there was a new extension being built out the back, it did not interfere with our stay, as we were in 308, and couldn't...

Had coffee this morning in the bar and what a lovely experience. We asked for some biscuits for the children and received a plate of homemade cookies which were fabulous and to top it all off we weren't even charged for them. What a lovely touch and something to make you return again and again. Staff are lovely. Made enquiries...

Every member of staff was so friendly from the moment we walked through the doors. We stayed in a junior suite. Big spacious room, big bathroom and big bed! Enjoyed cocktails at the bar before our meal. The food was absolutely fantastic. Compliments to the chefs for both the evening meal and breakfast. Everything was fresh and cooked to perfection...

This was our first stay at Ballygarry House but it won't be our last. On arrival we were upgraded to a superior room which was a nice surprise. All the rooms looked lovely though so I doubt we'd have been disappointed either way. The hotel looks lovely on the outside and the interior doesn't let it down. The Lobby and...
