The only one thing that was unpleasant was the staff member on our checking in day. She was very off putting which was disappointing but the rest of the staff and facilities were great. .

Great hotel just picked a bad night
The hotel was nice. We enjoyed the pool area. The staff were all really friendly throughout the hotel. The problem we had was the noise of other guest's. We were beside 3 rooms that all seemed to be together. They were constantly knocking on each other doors like every 10 mins whoch also meant the constant banging of doors. This went on until after 3 am at which point they fell out with each other so then there was shouting and crying etc . I know the hotel cant be responsible for other people having decency but some sort of sound proofing would be great.

Relaxing one night stay with amazing views
Lovely stay at the Ballyliffin hotel. The views from the terrace are stunning and we were blessed with a sunny day so was lovely to enjoy the views over pollan bay while sipping a pint. Enjoyed a dip in the pool, the jacuzzi pool is so relaxing. Dined in Jack's bar in the evening there was a great buzz about the place and the food was incredible. All the staff were so friendly and accomodating and extremely professional. Can't wait to visit again
