Our last night of a 10 day Ireland vacation after driving most of the country for over a week was spent relaxing and enjoying the beautiful Mount Falcon Estate. My only regret was not realizing it in advance so we could have planned to stay an extra day. The staff were amazing, food delicious, bar super friendly, room was gorgeous!...

We stopped off here for a quick bite to eat. We opted to eat in the Boathole Bar as it seemed cosy and the menu looked OK. The soup was presented practically cold. The main course (sea bass) was overcooked when it eventually arrived after a long wait. Overcooked fish is just sacrilege. This is a fabulous looking hotel in...

I cannot praise this hotel enough. The staff were so hospitable and professional. The grounds were outstandingly beautiful. We stayed in a lodge on the grounds. It was so beautiful. This is Co Mayo's biggest kept secret. Please try and make this your nest holiday destination!!!!!

Where to start? It's just over a month since our wedding at glorious Mount Falcon and we are still getting complements on the success of our day. We had viewed 5/6 other properties before settling on a venue and thank Goodness we picked the right one. The whole Weekend was a dream and we cannot commend the entire team at...

Unfortunately I could only stayed one night, the service and the room were just perfect. We were made feel so welcome, everybody we met were friendly and accommodating.

We were having a good stay but when a stray dog showed up the manager at this hotel was totally lacking. Things were going well, nice lodge and we all had a nice meal on first night. In the afternoon of our second day there was then a stray Labrador running around the grounds - it appeared to be really...

I stayed in a 4 bedroom Courtyard self catering house. We were in Ballina for my son's wedding and it was very convenient for my family to all stay together. Plenty of room and very comfortable. Could have a little cleaner but nothing to note. All the services are available in the main building. Restaurant is fantastic. Grounds are extensive....

We stayed here recently on a tour of Ireland, especially focussed on links golfing. We were very luck to snag the Walpool Suite (sp?). The whole facility is top-notch including the great restaurant for gourmet dinners. Overall, it was great value. Wished we'd had more time to enjoy the neat activities like archery, skeet shooting and falconry. Many excellent golf...

It was a nice hotel, the superior room was spacious as was the bathroom. The 5 course dinner was really lovely in parts but I wasn't blown away. Staff were very nice. It was a present to us but I don't think I would be hugely pushed to go again.

This is our second time to stay at Mount Falcon. We are staying in the Courtyard self catering houses. There is absolutely nothing to fault about this place at all. We hope to return many times in the future. Every member of staff are so helpful, friendly and attentive. Top quality 👍🏻
