Disappointed.. the food was ok but nothing special. But the real let down was it was a special occasion where a large group were celebrating and spending a lot they never even offered the birthday girl a cocktail or made any effort. The general staff were friendly but the man in the bar bordered on rude ... Not a welcoming atmosphere... won't be returning.

Stayed at the Courthouse as it was in the town having stayed slightly out of towñ previously. Room was a good size. Tea and coffee making facilities and plenty of storage. Sadly nothing else very positive about the room. Room was directly above the swing entry doors to the bar which banged everytime someone went through them. Handle on the window broken so difficult to open and close. Mattress very old and lumpy and springs noisy and uncomfortable. The bathroom is in need of attention, very little grout in floor tiles, some tiles cracked, black mould on the shower cubicle runners, difficulties closing shower cubicle doors. Hot water very hit and miss, one day there was no hot water at all and a plumber had to be called. Very tired decoration throughout. Refurbished in 2009. In desperate need of another one. Breakfast was very disappointing. No cereals, porridge, fruit or yoghurt available. Just cooked breakfast selection or toast and soda bread. Staff were really lovely and the food generally in the bistro was nice. Sadly everything else overshadowed the good service and nice evening meals. Would have asked for a discount but was asked to pay in full on arrival.

After coming to Ballyhaunis since i was a child and due to the family cottage being sold last year couldnt resist a visit back. We have been in vals many a time but this was our first stay. Enjoyed every minute we had a very spacious family room, rooms very clean good comfy beds very friendly staff especially martina who made us welcome throughout our week. Breakfast was 100% as always lovely meals too. Will definately be back next year! Thank you to all at vals for making our holiday special.

I stayed in The Courthouse last weekend. Myself and my wife were in Ireland for a wedding and needed a nice hotel, close to Knock, due to a late flight. After reading the previous reviews I decided to book The Courthouse. I have to say, we were not disappointed. We checked into the room and came straight down to the restaurant/pub for dinner. Now, we were not expecting to receive the standard of food we got served (no disrespect intended) but the food was well presented and absolutely delicious. We both got starters and mains and OMG, the food was as nice as I’ve tasted in a long time. The welcome and service we received throughout the stay was fantastic, warm and welcoming and nothing was too much effort. We were greeted by a lovely lady (Unfortunately I didn’t get her name, but believe she was the manager/owner) and I would have liked to have thanked her, but didn’t want to interrupt her, as she was very busy. The room itself was fairly standard, but was very comfortable and had all the amenities you would require from a hotel/B&B. The only issues we had was a broken toilet (wouldn’t flush) and we were too embarrassed to report it with a bar full of people. Some might also find it slightly noisy, but that didn’t disturb our sleep too much. I will definitely be visiting again, even just to stop and have a bite to eat.

We stayed for one night. Upon checkin we were asked to pay upfront. We went up to our room. There was a damp, rotting smell that hit ypu as soon as you opened the door. We asked to change rooms and were moved to another room. No smell this time but a broken toilet and a wet bed. We were again moved and told that after this they had no other free rooms. The smell of smoke was unbelievable. Management offered us a can of airfreshener and claimed that they do not allow guests to smoke in the rooms but that there was very little they could do. (Perhaps they could put up signs, advise guests of their no smoking policy upon check in. It wouldn't be that difficult.) We had no option but to stay in the room. I will never return. One positive was the nice breakfast. Cooked to order and great service.

Very clean & friendly guesthouse. We were made to feel very welcome by all of the staff and the rooms are very big. We had some changes to our booking and the manager could not have been more helpful and flexible. The bar and food are equally good and available throughout the day.

A few months later than I expected (reference to my last review), but I returned once again to the Courthouse in Ballyhaunis. I returned to find nothing had changed, well they say: " never go back," but in this case I am glad I did, the only difference this time, was a greater welcome from Staff and Management. The food is still top quality fare and very keenly priced, service and attention to my needs were second to none, indeed I wanted for nothing, a different room this time and once again, warm, clean, nicely decorated and a spotless en-suite; I last visited Summer-time of 2104, this time middle of January 2015, I had the added bonus of seeing the open fireplace pumping out its heat into the Bar area, which was a real treat against the back-drop of Ice and Snow outside !. As I shall be moving to Ireland and this area in particular shortly, I shall be frequenting Val's Bar and Bistro, which is attached to the Courthouse; I made so many new friends by simply staying at this wonderful establishment, - I would recommend this place to anyone without reservation, for Business or pleasure.

I found this little Gem by accident (via a business contact); in July this year (2014), I had to travel to the Co. Mayo area of Ireland to view property, to do this, I needed a handy B&B and it had to be well positioned geographically to enable me to return after a days driving round the countryside and be able to unwind, have a good meal and a finally get a comfortable good night's rest. The Courthouse is only 15-minutes from Knock Airport which is very handy. The Courthouse did EVERYTHING I needed, on arrival I was met by the managing owner (Trish), given a truly warm welcome and keys to very well presented sleeping accommodation, the room (en-suite), was very well decorated and clean to a very high standard to include crisp linen on the bed. The atmosphere at the Courthouse can only be described as old-world charm but modern in approach, the décor is very appealing, very clean and you feel home-from-home, the staff are VERY attentive, the food is also to an extremely high standard and has a very good menu range for all tastes, indeed they cater for personal likes and dislikes when ordering a meal. The breakfasts start around 08 A.M and you are not kept waiting long for your meal, I chose the all-in full-Irish breakfast which I so looked forward to each morning, there are T.V monitors all round the bar and seating area but NOT too intrusive, Wi-Fi is FREE, so there is much to aid you to relaxation. I would without reservation recommend The Courthouse, I have to return again before the end of this year and I will be going there again. Just three noted items to mention, Car Parking can be difficult as the Town is very busy, but O.K after 19:00hrs, there are only Car Parking places in Ballyhaunis High Street, Car Parks are available, but are not places to leave a Car unattended for long periods, the only other items to mention are Wi-Fi is NOT possible in the Bedrooms (no signal), and the T.V (FREE), only seems to get one channel.
