Taste, presentation, depth of flavors. This place had it all. The less formal pub restaurant was terrific. Would make the same choice again for dinner

We had a 4 course dinner here during out stay at Ballynahinch Castle. The meal was superlative and we enjoyed trying the various entrees/desserts. The chocolate lava cake was among the best desserts I've ever had.

Dinner here is a great treat, in particular in the summer, when you can admire the sun set and watch the colours change as the day flees away. There is a good selection on the menu, but what drives on the plate exceeds the promise...More

The chef here has a handle on new ideas without taking you to places you don't want to go. Execution is excellent and service is fine dining standards. Some of the best meals in Ireland had here at the end of a long active day.
