Great wee spot for dinner in the bar area. Probably best to book in a Sunday as its pretty busy. We were at a 2 person table by the door. Was fine until the 4 person table beside was taken. Not alot of privacy, cant really hear yourself think. But despite this the food was great and reasonably priced. Will...

Stayed early March one wet and rainy evening. Great meal in the bar, everyone with us was very happy with the food and service. Staff welcoming and friendly. Large bedroom, very well appointed and comfortable which all made for a great sleep. Bar was inviting and friendly and the Friday evening quiz was fun. Thanks to Gerry and all the...

I stayed here recently and was not disappointed. Staff were very friendly and even though I arrived just before the kitchen was due to close, the gentleman on duty went to make sure the chef would remain for a few minutes so I could get something to eat. The food arrived quickly and didn't show any signs of a chef...

The Ballymac has been a family favourite of ours for years. We had our wedding here & several family members also. The food is always unbeatable & you get plenty every time. It has a cosy bar where you can also rat which is my favourite & all the staff have always been so lovely & friendly when we are...

We found it strange that the food all comes out separate, like you get a massive plate with just a steak on it then all the sides come out on different plates so the table was so full, the female staff are miserable, they're lovely to each other they stand around and laugh and talk to each other but when...

6 couples saved for 3 months to have a night away. Terry and the staff at the Ballymac really looked after us. Great food and the rooms were lovely. 4 poster bed really capped it off. Had a great time. Will definitely be back.

Had bar food with family here last weekend. The steaks were reportedly good as was the scampi but there was no side salad or vegetables with either. Friendly staff. Good quick service. Chips were mediocre. I've been here many times before as the food is sooo good but last weekend, I was a bit disappointed. Specials £16/17 for ribeye steak.

Have eaten here many times in the past and have always been more than pleased.It had been a while between this visit and our previous visit. Found this last visit to be very disappointing. We were shown to a table quickly, the waitress was friendly, the drinks order was taken and we were left to have a look at the...

We stay here all the time for the residential special it is amazing! As my partner doesn't like the set menu we always change to the bar menu which is absolutely fine! Rooms are spacious with lovely bathrooms.
