Amazing anniversary
We first heard of Ballynahinch from a video on old Irish castles, so it was nice to see it with our own eyes. Despite staying for only one night in a Luxury double room with a river view, we truly enjoyed our time there. The room was really spacious, with the huge bathroom being preceded by a walk-in closet and also having both a walk-in shower and a bathtub. Be it night or day, the view from the room and outdoor patio was mesmerising. Being our 5th anniversary, an additional surprise was a greeting card marking the occasion left in our room. Having arrived really late, we only had time for dinner that evening and it was a great experience. Both the drinks and food were interesting and delicious. For breakfast we had a table with a nice river view and the food options were plentiful. Before leaving, we also had a lovely walk around the property, which is truly amazing. We would definitely come back for another serene and relaxing stay in the future. P.S. If you have the time, the Sky Road starting in Clifden offers amazing views and is not to be missed.

Beautiful place to be!
We’ll definitely come back & spend even more time at Ballynahinch Castle. Beautiful setting, charming place. Only thing we’ll change is stay longer & select a larger room.

Best part of my trip. Had a two hour tour of the estate with Greg well worth the time and money.
