This is easily the best hotel we have ever stayed in. The staff right through the hotel are top class. The room was spotless with excellent attention to detail. We really enjoyed the food in the bar and the restaurant. It is slightly out of Tralee which really suited us as a family with small Children. There is loads of garden space if you just want to stroll around.

Room Tip: Its all good.

I have been coming back to Ballygarry house hotel since my wedding here 10 years ago. To say this is the best hotel I have ever had the pleasure to stay at is an understatement. The staff make it a pleasure to come back, their attention to detail is second to none. It's the friendless and that nothing is a bother even with 5 small children invading the quietness and serenity of the hotel that makes me want to come back again and again..couldn't recommend it more..

Room Tip: Rooms away from ballroom are quieter.

Dear Guest,

Many thank for taking the time to write such a fantastic review...you must be busy with the five smallies!!

Delighted to hear that you still enjoy Ballygarry after ten years and that even with a few additions we can still accommodate and make you and the family feel welcome and comfortable.

Our staff are always willing to go that extra mile and a lot have young families themselves so they know whats involved in making things a tad easier.

Many thanks for the years of custom to Ballygarry House and I hope that we can provide you with very many more.

Regards
Padraig McGillicuddy

We have become regular visitors to the Ballygarry House Hotel. The reason we keep going back is that it just ticks all the boxes for us. The rooms are beautiful and really comfortable, the food is excellent and the staff are all very friendly and helpful. The Spa is also a must visit. The gardens are a treat to spend time in. We instantly feel relaxed once I arrive in this lovely hotel. They really have got everything just right. I'm looking forward to my next visit already.

I recently stayed in Ballygarry house as mother/daughter trip and it was really enjoyable. The hotel is situated in a beautiful spot with lovely walks nearby. It is a beautiful hotel. The staff were very friendly and welcoming at reception. Rooms were at little warm as the weather was hot but this was solved with a fan supplied. We stayed in a superior room. Bathrobes were supplied. We had a choice of bath or shower. We were on a spa package break. The spa was lovely, so welcoming, loved the outdoor hot tub and the facial was really good. We also had dinner included one night which we enjoyed. The breakfast was freshly made, I had pancakes each morning and my mother had eggs Benedict. We also ate in the bar and had drinks in the bar. The staff here are really professional, friendly and seem to aim to please. Looking forward to returning here soon.
