I find myself only writing a review after a bad experience but I have stayed here every Easter for that last few years and it is excellent. Great grounds, good solid restaurant and accommodation to a high standard. Nothing to fault and will certianly be back.

We had occasion to visit Mount Falcon Hotel for lunch recently and what an experience it was! We were met by a most charming waiter/barman Ronan, who kept us in conversation about the history of the hotel and its grounds. It is truly a hidden jewel and well worth a visit if you are passing through to Ballina. The food was excellent. We requested our beef fillet to be well done....it was like chicken it was so tender and not burned either....well done Chef! I would highly recommend a visit to this wonderful establishment and partake in some of it's delicious food or just a coffee. You would feel relaxed leaving. Well dome Mount Falcon!!

Room Tip: a great place to destress!

This place was excellent, we had afternoon tea and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. Kids got a free ribena, generous portions for everyone - I will definitely go back and would highly recommend!!

Stayed here recently, there was a wedding in the hotel the same night so there wasnt any area that we could of relaxed as they had taken over 3 areas. The house itself and grounds are amazing. The staff are exceptional to deal with and really make the hotel. The rooms are lovely but we did have 2 beds pushed together which wasnt comfortable as being considered a double room. The dining room is beautifully finished and fires lit all over the property make it such a lovely experience.

A great hotel with great service. Allan and his team are great and make you feel at home. If you are traveling in Northwest Ireland this is a great place to stay - and I don't even fish!!!!
