I booked my small party of 5 into this wonderful hotel, lured by a rave review in the Irish Independent. The hotel is a grand country house and skilfully restored but not intimidating. It is set in a beautiful area just outside Ballina and has extensive well attended grounds. The evening meal was as good as we have ever we had in the very best of restaurants, Gordon Ramsey could not compete with mastery of the chef in Hotel Falcon. The service was warm, friendly and attentive. The bedrooms were large, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The cost was extremely affordable and represented excellent value for money, I double checked the price several times as I could not believe we could bet such excellent value for money. We will return to take advantage of its excellent fishing offer and want to again experience the wonderful food but in the meanwhile, we highly recommend it.
