we stayed for 3 nights and on arrival I was met by a male receptionist who said' You have to pay the €330 up front' which I did. No other conversation. Then as he turned and walked back into an office he said 'And your breakfast is down there (pointing) between 8 and 10 in the morning'. And he was...

Always a great visit with brilliant food and staff. Central to a vast array of sightseeing tours. Staff are very helpful, hotel is immaculate and nothing is to much trouble. There is a nice beach across the road and some great walks.

A first visit to Ballyliffin & an excellent stay at Ballyliffin hotel. A warm greeting at reception & our room was as requested with a sea view if quite a distance away. The room was clean if a little small but only a shower no bath was a little disappointing. However the staff were at all times most helpful. Breakfast...

There was a crack in the ceiling just opposite reception and water was dripping onto a table. The playroom has peeling paint, is in need of toys, a depressing place for children. The food was good, fast service, nicely presented but the chef would need to reduce the salt in the food, the soup was over salted as was the...

Genuinely friendly staff, always willing to help and assist with any enquiries. Property of a very good standard. WiFi worked well. Visited at weekend and the place was very busy. There is a special childrens' room off the dining area - useful for young families.

My partner and I booked through Groupon. When we arrived we received a warm welcome. Our room 141 was clean with a view of the sea. We booked dinner from the menu used with the deal. I had roast beef and my partner had chicken on chiabatta. Both meals were gorgeous and the staff were very attentive. On the second...

We stayed here for a wedding over Christmas, straight away we were met by a friendly, welcoming staff. After a quick check in it was straight to the bar. The barman (who's name was Blaine i think) was fantastic. He kept the craic going and the drink flowing. He, like some of the other staff, despite not being old, is...

Just home from a wonderful weekend trip to Donegal, we decided to use the Ballyliffin Hotel as our base. We found the hotel to be very comfortable, clean and a very warm and welcoming staff. Waking up to a stunning view out over Pollan Bay followed by a very nice breakfast we headed off to check out the nearby spots...
