A lovely return to Ballygarry Estate. The usual warm welcome with great food and comfortable, spacious bedroom. Despite the necessary covid restrictions being in place, this didn't take away from the experience. No doubt we will return in 2022!

Recently had a 5 night break at the Ballygarry House Hotel and Spa. We had a very enjoyable stay with a well appointed superior room and excellent food throughout our stay. The staff are really friendly and helpful. I would like to especially mention Linda from accommodation who sorted out a small issue with minimum fuss. Also Noreen, from the restaurant and Lisa and Bridget from the spa. Gina, the spa manageress was very friendly and courteous. We hope to return again soon.

Excellent hotel. Great location, very comfortable and well-appointed rooms, lovely staff and the food in the brasserie was very good. I stayed there twice for business and will definitely stay again. I unfortunately didn’t get a chance to visit the spa or fitness facilities but I’ve heard that they’re well worth it.

Our daughter and her husband had their wedding reception here in June. From the moment you entered the hotel all your needs are catered for. All the stsff from the cleaners to the receptionist to the waiters/ waitresses to management were very attentive. The food was just out of this world. Any hot food served if you were not sitting at your table when food arrived at your table a cover was placed over it. This was the situation where ever you were seated at. Everyone got an offer of more food for the main course. The food was just excellent
