Just returned from a two night stay at the hotel and it was a fantastic stay that we had. The the moment we arrived in the lashings of rain till we left this morning the staff could not have been nicer. We had a fantastic room with a view of the mountains and it was so quiet.

Booked in on a friday for a combination of business and pleasure. Sadly did not have time to use the leisure facilities. Did have the comfort of an excellent spotlessly clean room. Food from breakfast to dinner was top class. Looking a place to relax or do business then this is

Got a great deal on Pigsback for Dinner, B&B & prosecco. Went on a Thursday for a 1 night break away and wasn't disappointed. I have to say, every member of staff that we encountered was professional, friendly and helpful. We arrived early so instead of checking in we went

What's the best way to get there from Dublin Airport? Cab or train and what are the fares? Thank you, Amrik
Hi Amrik, I work in Ballymascanlon Hotel and you are best to travel to us by train or bus as a taxi would work out very expensive. To catch a train you would need to take a bus or taxi into Connolly Station and then catch a train to Dundalk station. Alternatively there would be buses from the airport that would stop at the bus station in Dundalk. We are about two miles outside Dundalk town so you would then require a taxi from either the train station or bus station. Thank you.
