We spent 2 nights in Sept 2016, nice hotel, pleasant staff, OK food, good rooms, but the hotel was completely taken over by wedding guests (both nights, 2 different weddings). The music in the ballroom vibrated all the way to our room on 3rd floor, until 2 AM. In the rooms are earplugs, with a note apologizing in advance for...

Always enjoy getting out and about on our days off during the week and Ballyliff is the perfect place to go and relax. We thought we would treat ourselves to a bit of lunch and so went to the Bar at the Ballyliff Lodge. Even though it was quiet around there was still a good atmosphere in the bar area....

The wedding was beautiful, they do a good job of using the space they have. Before anything I want to say the Bar man in the main bar, Ronan, was an absolute legend! So accommodating, friendly and great Craic! He served us the night before the wedding (when we stayed) and the night of the wedding! His cocktail making skills...
