We had our wedding reception at the Ballyliffin Lodge on 29 March 2019, and we are so delighted we made this decision. We knew we wanted to have our reception in Inishowen as it is a special place for us, and the Lodge had such a fantastic reputation for weddings. From the first day we went to look at it as a potential venue we knew it was perfect. The location and views absolutely blew us away and the set up for the wedding that day was exactly what we wanted. So much so that we provisionally booked the same day and confirmed soon after. Everyone we dealt with at the hotel throughout the whole process was so professional, approachable and friendly - we didn't have any concerns at all about the reception and having that peace of mind when planning a wedding is priceless. The day itself could not have gone smoother and the feedback we have received from our guests on the location, service and food has been fantastic. I have already recommended the hotel to colleagues planning their weddings and will definitely continue to. We would like to extend our thanks again to all the staff at the hotel for their kindness and hospitality, and a special word of thanks to Madeline, Kathryn and Niamh for their help in planning and professionalism on the day. We cannot wait to visit the hotel again and hope to see you all soon. Emma and Eimer

My husband and I got married here on 21/3/19 and to say it was an amazing day is an understatement. The hotel staff were fantastic, they catered to our every need and made the events of the day flow seamlessly. The venue is stunning and the pictures we captured are outstanding. The views from this location are one of a kind. I would recommend this venue for not only weddings but for romantic breaks or family retreats

We had our wedding in Ballyliffin Lodge on 15th March 2019 and we could not fault it in any way! Kathryn and all staff were absolutely brilliant on the run up to the big day and on the day itself nothing was too much for them, we had nothing to worry about at all everything went so smoothly! The food was fantastic and we were even offered extras which I have never seen at a wedding before! Rooms are beautiful and very clean and spacious and the views from our room was breathtaking! Each and everyone of our guests had nothing but compliments about the staff, food and the venue itself! I am so glad we chose Ballyliffin Lodge for wedding day! We also stayed the night after and had food in he bar which was lovely, staff was very friendly and the bar was very relaxed! Our whole experience was fantastic and we would highly recommend Ballyliffin Lodge to anyone wether it be for a weekend away or for your big day! We cannot wait to go and say here again.

I had my wedding here in March and to say the least it was just outstanding! The staff at the lodge are remarkable and made the lead up to our wedding and on the day a breeze. Nothing was ever any bother, they catered for everyone’s needs and more! The food deserves 5 stars alone, our guests still talk about it. And the view, just breath taking! A prefect setting for pictures in their new gardens. I would recommend the lodge to any couple. Read less

Well on the 23rd of Feb myself and my new husband had our wedding reception at the Ballyliffin lodge and spa. For anyone considering having their wedding here... stop considering and book this venue. The staff were wonderful couldn't do enough for us. Kathryn never made me feel silly asking for anything. All our guests said they hadn't been to a wedding like it. From the minute we booked to the day after the wedding nothing was too much trouble. The day of the wedding Kathryn and Niamh catered to our every need. The food was unbelievable and helped us have the most amazing day. We also took advantage of the rolls Royce and the driver and the car were just fabulous. Lots of our guests also stayed overnight and had a lovely relaxing swim the next morning. Our bridal suite was perfect. And in the evening Kathryn and the team sent us up some wedding cake, sandwiches and orange juice for us which went down such a treat. Breakfast in bed the next morning just set off the whole stay perfectly. I honestly cannot say how many times our guests said how wonderful the hotel and the staff was and said they will definitely be back. Thank you again to the team at Ballyliffin lodge and spa from the new Mr and Mrs Quinn.

We had our wedding here on the 15/02/19. We couldn't have wished for a better day. Kathryn and Madeline made sure everything ran smoothly the whole day and night. The food was amazing. They couldnt have helped more on the run up to the big day. The lodge itself is gorgeous and the wedding garden was brilliant for photos. The honeymoon suite was out of this world. We got married in the lodge and stayed the night before and two nights after. If I had to do it all again I wouldnt change a thing!
