“Our Beautiful Wedding day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2012

Our wedding day was everything we could have wished for. A girl has an image in her head of how her wedding day should feel and look. Balyna House made my dreams come true. We got married on the 28th of Dec 2011, with a civil ceremony at the stone house on the grounds and our reception at Balyna House. We arranged our wedding from overseas and coming home to get married felt a little stressful, yet all the staff at Moyvalley from the first email to Lana the wedding coordinator 11 months before to the minute we were driving out of the beautiful grounds, everything was just as it should be, memorable & magical. All staff at Moyvalley were great from the word go. John the manager of the hotel is a lovely person and was so accommodating to us. The whole venue was spotless clean; the food was outstanding (all the quests commented). If I had to do it all again, not that I will , we are still happily married 5 weeks later, there is no doubt in our mind Moyvalley would be our number one choice.

Attended a wedding here recently. The main hotel was a typical large modern hotel, on the upper side of average. The wedding itself was in the main house, and it's a fabulous venue for a wedding. We had a gorgeous dining room, which transformed into a dance floor for the band. Later, we headed downstairs for the DJ, and it was like having our own little niteclub. Not gawdy though, more like a cellar-bar, with whitewashed walls. The owner (or manager?) was particularly friendly and helpful, as was the lady on the reception in the main hotel. i would definitely recommend it as a wedding venue, but probably not for a weekend away, as it's a bit too quiet.

if you are looking for a magical venue with incredible food perfect surroundingsand amazing staff that know how to make you and your guests feel special then Moyvalley is the place for you to have your wedding.
We had our civil wedding there in August in the stone house and our reception for 90 guests in Balyna house. Our guests stayed in the hotel and our family in Balyna house. They are right beside each other which means that there is no travelling involved for guests so all can relax and enjoy the stunning surroundings.
Balyna House is amazing, it will take your breath away and it has a suprise in the basement that all your guests will love. The dining room is transformed by the staff with really nice table settings and the food was excelent. All the staff, John Lana Thresa Christine Michelle Barry the night porter and all the rest really care about you and will make you feel very special indeed. It feels like a family operation and nothing is any trouble for the staff. They are there when you need them but not intrusive and really made our time there special. Go see it, you will fall in love with the place, just as we did and all our guests too.

4 girls and I stayed in one of the cottages last Saturday night and we couldn't rate it highly enough !! To be honest I was a bit aprehensive about staying in the cottage because of other reviews I read in here last week, but what I read couldn't actually be further from what we encountered. The cottage was SPOTLESS, the beds were COMFY, the staff were EXTREMELY friendly AND helpful (especially Martha who came and gave us all manicures and pedicures in the comfort of the cottage, whilst lounging in our PJ's !!!!!). We had a lovely dinner that night (again in the cottage) and ate a warm and hearty breakfast the following morning !!!! 5 stars for this hotel - NO DOUBT ABOUT IT !!!!! :o)

When we got to the hotel we thought it looked lovely. When we went to check in the woman was nice and she told us that we were up graded to a deluxe cottage. We were trilled and when we went over to the cottage we thought it was lovely on first impression. As we looked around you could see that the cottage was not used in a long time. There were cob webs and the kitchen was not clean. It was also very cold. There was also a very musty smell in the cottage which made my partner sick. The next day we looked around the bedrooms and there were dead flies around. We were moved to the hotel and given a room there which was ok. But still very cold. I would never stay in this hotel again really was a horrible stay.
