We have stayed in cottages a number of times and unfortunately what was once seen as charming is now just neglect. The bathroom was not clean and the bath was not sealed properly so there was a lot of mould. The bed sheets were not clean, neither were the dishes. The properties all lack natural light, and the artificial light... More

This is a popular place. Probably more because its a place to be seen than anything else. It does your social status sone good in certain sections of local society to be seen here. Make sure your car is clean etc etc Food is ok. Really is nothing special either in quality or quantity. Service is good, but dont expect... More

I was amongst 50 or so adults having a pre-Christmas dinner. Attention from all staff from our entrance to exit was excellent. Professional, friendly and efficient waitresses provided each of our four courses consecutively. Individual requests were met effectively and the food was attractively presented - and tasty. Staff quietly facilitated our carol singing - and the owner actually joined... More

Recently, my friend and I decided to go to Ballydougan for lunch. I live close by and love the setting, the food is usually good (although the vegetarian options could be better) and the gift shop is enjoyable to look around (but a little pricey). I enjoyed my soup and wheaten bread, however my friend thought her sandwich was pretty... More
