Well done to the friendly staff for being so accommodating on our impromptu visit . Cannot fail to be impressed with the stunning setting and the grand design of the building itself, equally internally and externally. Looking forward to finding out more !!!

This has to be my most favourite place! Me and my husband stay here every year for my Birthday. The staff are so friendly and always make sure our stay is special for us. The rooms are amazing and the Spa is not to be missed! Thank you to Laura who always looks after us every year. X

Got a good deal early on in the year and spent two days in the Slieve Donard between Christmas and New year. The spa was a delight, the staff were very helpful and food was great. Weather was spectacular which made the break complete.
