Pulling up to Ballynahinch after driving from County Mayo, we were delighted to get to spend a night in a "castle". Unfortunately it is not a castle, it is a manor house. The front of the hotel looks nice, but not worth the money. Then you walk the grounds and realize the money has to be spent on landscaping. Ballynahinch has absolutely magnificent grounds.
We had a beautiful room with a gorgeous bathroom. The shower pressure was AMAZING! Even better than the shower, was the food! Our dinner was incredible! Of the 10 nights I spent in Ireland, this was, by far, the best dinner!
Yes, I could say that the lobby was very outdated and smelled musty, but the hotel was delightful so I can overlook that. It was very quiet and does not have a nightlife, so if that's what you're looking for, do not stay at Ballynahinch.
