We couldn't have chosen a better venue for our daughter's wedding in October 2016. The management and staff were extremely accommodating to make this special event memorable for all our 100 guests at this unique location. In addition, the wines and menu were of exceptional quality.

We stayed at the Ballynahinch for three nights, and we're blessed with some good weather in mid December! We were greeted my Marion, who has mastered a perfect blend of humour and service. The castle is amazing, a perfect mix of history, tradition and luxury. We were given a beautiful riverside suite with direct access to the gardens from our...

Ballynahinch is like no place I have ever stayed. It is a castle but not like the traditional castle one would first think of. It is more like a manor or old gentlemen's hunting lodge. The service was mostly excellent. I say mostly because I feel the restaurant/bar service was lacking a bit in both attitude and speed. The food...

​ The hotel is located on incredible grounds that are very beautiful. We spent a few hours when we arrived walking around the walks on the grounds admiring the lake. The old part of the castle is very well decorated. Most common rooms have an open fire and the bar and restaurant serve high quality (a little pricey) food. The...

We stayed at Ballynahinch Castle Hotel for wonderful nights. It was one of our favorite stays in all of Ireland. Our room was huge and we had a view of the Owenmore river and lovely grounds. It is actually a historic home and Irish fishing lodge. We saw fishermen catching huge salmon right our window! Even though the hotel is...

Beautiful location with wonderful views from the rooms. The river views were mesmerizing. Staff is most accommodating to any needs. Recommend the fly fishing lessons, great time and super staff. Only negative is that we didn't find the food memorable. For such a wonderful inn, it could be of a higher level. Still, overall, would go back without hesitation.

This castle is out of the way, in a quiet area near a salmon river, with a view of the mountains. Beautiful location if you are looking for a quiet getaway. Fishing seems to be a popular option, as well as some nice walking paths near the river.

Every corner of this property has something to discover. A fishing camp with the highest of standards on comfort and cuisine. Lovely warm Pub to relax in and very helpful and accommodating staff. Fairly cool in November, but smaller crowds as well.

Just spent 3 nights and loved every minute of it. The rooms, food, staff, grounds....everything is perfect. Clay pigeon shooting with Shane was a highlight, as was the 2.5 hour tour of the grounds with Noel. We'll definitely go back!
