We attended a wedding there in January and found the accommodation and catering to be excellent. Had a beautiful meal in the bar the evening before the wedding, and were presented with excellent fare at the wedding celebration. Staff and facilities were first class.

Recently stayed at the Ballygarry House Hotel for wedding and I have to admit after paying 80euro pp bb for a family wedding, we were given no option of a residents bar.
