We have been to the Leebrook bar restaurant many times in the past. It has now been renovated and extended and not only is it absolutely beautifully decorated, still cosy, but modern, but the feel is still of style. The outdoor area, with the BBQ is the thing that will really make it different to anywhere else in the area....

My wife and I spent two days at the BallyGarry House as part of a week-long trip to Ireland and really enjoyed our time there. The staff was very friendly and took the time to make a few sight seeing recommendations at the front desk one morning as well. Enjoyed our stay and the breakfast was quite exceptional as well.

My husband and I spent 16 nights in Ireland, and this was unfortunately a low point to that trip. I found this hotel on Trip Advisor and it looked like a great deal.
