I have enjoyed a number of visits to Ardtara and my latest showed that, like a fine wine, it is still improving! A friendly welcome is a hallmark of this delightful place -Sean and Valerie are superlative in this fine art.The food....Niall McSharry is a great Chef and from his home made breads and amuse bouche through to the puddings ..everything is prepared and presented with great confidence and finesse.The Dinners are superb and so also is breakfast with each one cooked to order.There is a much improved wine list with a choice to suit all tastes and pockets.The other members of the front of house team,Nicola,Tim and Scott are all excellent ambassadors for what is a very special Hotel.

I recently stayed at Ardtara with my wife for 3 nights. From the moment we arrived we were blown away by the stunning property, the very welcoming staff and the outstanding food. This place is a hidden gem in the heart of Mid Ulster, it is very central for exploring Northern Ireland, but we loved the place so much we decided not to leave. It felt like a home from home and that was down to the staff, Sean and his team were very attentive and love to share the history of the house. The food we ate in both the lounge and restaurant was outstanding, no words can describe how much we enjoyed it. We had an amazing break and will most certainly return

Room Tip: Tasting menu is sensational

My wife and I attended their Victorian Christmas night recently and stayed over as well.
From the moment we entered the reception the welcome and the friendliness of the stand was amazing.
We were taken on a tour of the house and introduced to various members of staff.
In the evening we were entertained by a choir while in the Drawing Room before dinner.
Dinner was excellent, really high quality wood with great service.
Looking forward to going back.

I'm really happy that you enjoyed our Victorian Christmas evening with us. It was the first time that we have organised such an event, but it will become a staple on our Christmas calendar! And thank you for your generous words - we try to make all our guests feel as welcome as possible and look forward to seeing you again.

Just home from a nights stay in one of the Superior suites at the boutique Ardtara House. Only an hour outside of Belfast, this hidden gem was a great find! The service from second to none from start to finish, not to mention the outstanding evening meal and breakfast. There isn't much to do bar lounging in front of one of the many fires, so if you're looking for a relaxing night away, this is it. We're already looking forward to our next visit in 2018.

We had a brilliant stay, thanks so much! The cooking demo was great, food was excellent and lovely staff in the evening and morning! Loved the fire in the room, the bar was really cosy and the service was excellent, perfect for a quiet country break.
