This was my second time staying here on business and I'd definitely return. Very friendly reception staff, lovely big rooms including nice toiletries, clean, plenty of parking, etc. I ate in the bar that evening, the food was very nice but the large space lacked atmosphere - small complaint. Would recommend for other business travellers.

Highly recommend

Good value hotel , very helpful staff. When I checked in the room had a bad smell of cigarettes even though it was a non smoking room but it was no issue to move me .Great swimming pool and very good quality food . A million times better than the sister hotel last week in Nenagh.

This was our first stay at this hotel and I would be happy to stay again. Grounds and hotel were very nice and well kept, loads of parking. Our room was nice and spacious, the only thing letting it down was the tiny TV and lack of plug sockets near the bed. We had dinner in the bar which was...

This is the second time I have stayed in Hotel Ballina, the last time being in 2013. Again, we had an enjoyable, relaxing stay once again at the hotel. Our room was spacious and tidy. Plenty of hot water in the shower and the room was warm. The receptionists were very welcoming on our arrival and check out. Unfortunately we...

Stayed here for a weekend, lovely hotel, food is fantastic, place is spotless, staff are all lovely and the bedrooms are nice and spacious.... only complaint was that our room had adjoining doors to the next room and we could hear absolutely everything between the two rooms. But would definitely recommend this hotel as we had a lovely weekend.
