Lovely room, staff and service. DVDs for kids if needed. Vouchers for splashworld which we didn't use but can keep for when we return. Lovely atmosphere in bar and dining room. Christmas decorations lovely inside and out which we all loved. Highly recommended :-)

A perfect weekend from start to finish. We were looking for total relaxation and that is exactly what we got. Booked treatments in the Nadur Spa and they did not disappoint. To relax in an outdoor hot tub in Ireland at this time of year was a treat. The food in the hotel was superb and there was plenty of... More

Located outside Tralee's city center, this hotel is very up to date. My very large room had a very clean and modern bathroom. The hotel itself is beautifully furnished and appointed. The food service is excellent and well prepared. Service was outstanding. Thumbs up for me.

Stayed two nights for my niece's wedding reception. Accommodation was spacious, functional, clean and quiet. Breakfast was cooked to order and delicious. Staff in the main were courtious and friendly. Was a little unhappy that dinner, which was included in our booking, was charged despite the fact that the restaurant was closed when we arrived late and we were unable... More

We were lucky enough to have been married in Ballygarry House at the end of July. Both of us are not from the Tralee area so it was a big decision to drag our guests two hours down the road for our wedding, thankfully it was the right decision-from the moment we first met with the sales manager to the...

We had a weekend trip in Tralee area and we have spent a night at Ballygarry House hotel. It is a very calm and warm place, good room size, and welcoming people. Breakfast is great and we enjoyed both the SPA and the gym.
