"Comfort, Character, Charming" This place is the opposite of your usual cream marble glass doors kind of hotel, where you can’t tell what part of the world you are in. This beautiful quaint characterful building nestles into the most picturesque landscape you can imagine. Be sure to stay in one of the river view rooms, you may just stay on the couch looking out your own window all day, but be sure to venture out around the grounds too. If you like understated elegance, lived in luxury, peace and quiet, good food and wine, and a hotel with character, treat yourself to this place. I must say the bedroom was very spacious, dressing area and bathroom were well appointed and spotless, and had everything we needed. Voya products in the bathroom and a nespresso machine just follow the standard set by this fabulous hotel.

"EXQUISITE !!" Eloped 30 years ago,we decided to finally have our overdue wedding and with$500k ( 140+friends airfares and suites on us ) we chose Ireland as being an equal distance from USA,Europe and Austral/asia...we tried 3 night ea in 8 five stars Castles/Manors to find out how they compare...Located in the forest,by the side of a wild Salmons river,it stands magnificently...the rooms were spacious and as original as possible,REAL log fires in the salons and tastefully decorated in the period 10/10, if you can overlook the receptionistS is as close as perfect as one would find a Manor...service was raw but well meant 7/10 thank to a very good barman,,the suite was 10/10 with views on the river ( which is nice but not that important,the views are really inside ) the food was a 9/10...thanks to ,what we were told when we asked...a French sous chef...who cooked us a wood pigeon and pheasant dish ,the best main course we had on this trip !!! it is not in the composition, but in the cooking on the night...and it was PERFECT !!! very important for o/s guests...we love our food !

"Exceptional Stay" We are in process of possibly revisiting Ireland and have fond memories of our 2 night stay at Ballynahinch Castle in May 2011. We were traveling through Galway and Mayo touring the lakes region of these counties along with Connemara Nat'l Park and found the castle on one of our favorite travel sites. We were so happy with our stay. The old manor house (castle) situated in beautiful woodlands next to a prime salmon river was perfect. The GM even offered me a flyrod to try my luck but unfortunately it was a little early in the year for the salmon run. Our accommodations were just what we expected, the staff engaging and helpful, and the dining couldn't have been better. Ballynahinch knows how to get it right--no missteps here. Thanks for the wonderful memories.

"Wedding Venue" We couldn't have chosen a better venue for our daughter's wedding in October 2016. The management and staff were extremely accommodating to make this special event memorable for all our 100 guests at this unique location. In addition, the wines and menu were of exceptional quality.
