What a beautiful night's Bed Breakfast and Evening meal I enjoyed with my 5 lady family members. The hotel was so Covid safe, and each member of staff was just wonderfully friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and it was so cozy and Christmassy!!! We have enjoyed many stays in this hotel and it has never disappointed but at Christmas time it is just so special! Thank you all!

We’ve just returned from a delightful four night/three Dinner break at the Ballymascanlon. It was wonderful to have the opportunity to finally revisit after two cancellations. Our welcome was genuine & friendly. We were delighted with the spacious room, lovely view, all amenities provided. Restaurant experience at Breakfast & Dinner was relaxing & adherence to Covid demands was perfect . The Staff could not have been more helpful & the food delicious… those Garlic Mushrooms! The ambience everywhere was both relaxing & enhanced by magnificent Christmas decorations in every nook & cranny. We can’t wait to go back again !

We spent three nights here in mid November. We had been here for a weekend about twenty years ago, which was great fun, but we didn’t remember too much about it. We had dinner in the hotel on one of the nights and went to restaurants in Carlingford the other two. This is a well run establishment: The staff are very helpful and friendly, and ready to give you advice. Our room was on the third floor, looking out over the Cooley Mountains. Comfortable bed and heating easily adjustable. We played the hotel’s tennis courts and golf course and went for a swim in their pool while we were there. Breakfast was good. Excellent attention to COVID guidelines. Good value for money. A very relaxing and enjoyable break.
