I Only Wish I Could Have Stayed Longer

The highlight of my day today (maybe even the month) was to hear this fantastic feedback from Frank Hanrahan, who recently stayed at Ballynahinch Castle.

“My wife and I chose to spend our wedding anniversary at Ballynahinch Castle, and are both more than elated that we did. From the large and comfortable room with all the comforts of a 5 Star Hotel, to the outstanding dining room with its magnificent view of the river, to the positive and helpful staff, from the general manager to the wait staff, and the stunning grounds surrounding the castle/hotel, we have never felt so welcome and comfortable as we did at Ballynahinch. We went for a walk along two of the trails on the grounds of the castle and, as we walked, I found myself smiling several times for no apparent reason, other than the beauty and splendor of the surroundings. Obviously, we will be more than happy to return to Ballynahinch whenever we can.”

Ballynahinch is a castle which has long been a personal favourite of mine, one in which I have chosen to celebrate my special birthday later in the year.

This led me to take a look at the feedback received from other guests who stayed at Ballynahinch in the last 12 months, and share these with you...

"Very friendly and welcoming staff, beautiful surroundings and a great overall experience."

"We only wish that we had planned to stay two nights, instead of the one night that we did!"

Carol McHale 

"We loved our castle stay! We were backpacking around Ireland for the week and spent one night at Ballynahinch and after walking from the bus stop to the castle, the next day we were offered a ride back to the bus stop by the activities directer, Josh, since it was raining. All of the staff were very polite and courteous and made sure that we were enjoying our stay."

Mara Varvil

"Ballynahinch Castle was the most amazing place to stay. The employees are so kind, accommodating, and respectful. The food in the pub at night was wonderful and the breakfast was the best I've ever experienced in any hotel! I could not have been happier staying there and would gladly come back when I return to Ireland."

Carol Adams

"If you are looking for a quiet peaceful beautiful place to stay, this is it! Very friendly staff, eager to help."

Nancy Weaver


"My first time ever staying in Ireland in a castle. I brought my best friend over for a tour and decided to splurge a bit. It was fantastic! The only down side was that we wanted to stay longer!! Thank you all for everything at Ballynahinch, you were wonderful!!! Hope to see you again."

Cynthia Williams

"Had the most wonderful stay at Ballynahinch and only wish we had planned our trip to allow ourselves a longer stay! The building and the grounds were beautiful, the staff were incredibly friendly, and the atmosphere relaxing. It's clear the castle/hotel holds a lot of history and is an important part of the local culture. Don't change a thing - it was marvellous."

Lily Moss

"Everyone was delightful. We had a splendid walk and ride on the lake with Noel. The dining room was first rate and our server, Yvonne, a joy. Thanks for a wonderful time."
