We had a lovely break in this hotel last week as part of a deal. From the outside the hotel looks very impressive. The inside is very nice too but the bedrooms would need a little bit of an update especially the bathrooms. I really dislike shower curtains so was disappointed

Beautiful setting for weddings. Gardens are immaculate kept. Golf course a little gem to play. Friendly staff and excellent food. Music on a Friday night in the bar to keep your toes tapping. Great bar food as well as in the restaurant. Lovely to go for walks around the area.

Hi Amrik, I work in Ballymascanlon Hotel and you are best to travel to us by train or bus as a taxi would work out very expensive. To catch a train you would need to take a bus or taxi into Connolly Station and then catch a train to Dundalk station. Alternatively there would be buses from the airport that would stop at the bus station in Dundalk. We are about two miles outside Dundalk town so you would then require a taxi from either the train station or bus station. Thank you.
