We would like to thank you and the team at Ballyliffin Lodge for a fantastic wedding day.The civil ceremony room offered us just what we wanted, with great views to the seaside. The setting of the lodge in beautiful Donegal was perfect, with the beach handy for photos. The New Zealander’s and Australians were blown away with the scenery. We really appreciated the freedom to put our own personal stamp on the day. We would definitely recommend the Lodge as a wedding venue

On their wedding day itself the service couldn't have been finer,we were made to feel so welcome and everything ran so smoothly.Guests commented all day and in letters and cards after the wedding on how wonderful the hotel was, commenting also on how courteous the staff were.The wedding meal was just perfect as was the delicious breakfast next morning.My husband and I had a most beautiful bedroom with excellent facilities.
We are still really on cloud nine and look forward to our next visit to Ballyliffin Lodge Hotel.

Thanks to Siobhan and all the staff @ the Ballyliffin Lodge & Spa for making our wedding day so special. The excellent service provided to both our guests and ourselves throughout our stay enhanced our day.
Thanks for everything Kate & Conor Mc Ginn 23/07/10
Thanks for all your help and patience Siobhan, we had a fantastic day. We have received nothing but praise for the hotel and food. Everyone was impressed with the choice available and the seabass was particularly popular. Half of our guests had not been to that part of Donegal before and they were all very taken with the scenery. Most of steven's relatives are saying its the best wedding they've been at. His cousins had some American guests over the following week and brought them to Ballyliffen they were so impressed. My Dublin friends booked in for another night they liked it so much and my London friends are planning to return for NYE. The wedding went better than expected and the staff at the Ballyiffen were very professional and courteous.
Thanks again for all your help.
Karen & Steven (25/06/100)
We'd just like to thank you Siobhan for everything you did to make our wedding day so special. You and your staff displayed the utmost professionalism and your attention to detail was second to none. Our every need was attended to and you helped to make our day so relaxed and enjoyable. Many of our guests, who also stayed overnight in the hotel, have commented on both the excellent quality of food, and the service you and your staff provided. Everyone was friendly, courteous and efficient, and we couldn't fault the hotel or it's staff in any way. We're so glad now we chose the lodge for our wedding reception. Please pass on our sincere thanks to all the staff you looked after us on the day - they really did add to our day in a big way!
Many thanks again,
Roisin & Patrick McCourt, Derry -Wedding on the 3rd July 2010
Siobhan just a note to say thank you to you, Breda & all the other staff who helped make our wedding reception a great success on the 24th April. The service was excellent, the staff were extremely attentive and patient. Many of our guests commented on the hotel service and said they would return for a break on the future. Please pass on our thanks to Mellissa & her colleagues in the Spa for all their help getting myself and the bridesmaids ready.
Lisa & Donal ( Rogan) April 2010
We had a fantastic day, I can easily say that it was the best day of our lives!!
All our guests thought that it was a fabulous venue and that the food was excellent too.
Catherin Dunne - May 2010
Our wedding day at the Ballyliffin Lodge could not have been more wonderful!
We would like to thank Breda, Siobhan and all the staff for making it so perfect!
From the very start our every query and query was dealt with, with great professionalism and enthusiasm.
They gave us the freedom to put our own personal stamp on our Big Day and all the little details and features that we asked for were honoured. Our guests were very impressed with the meal, the service and the efficiency of the whole day from the moment we ‘danced’ through the door (quite literally!) and for that we could not be more grateful.
It was so satisfying knowing that our guests were happy! We didn’t have to worry about a thing!
Thank you all for making our Big Day one to remember, forever!
From two very satisfied newly weds
Marie-Therese and Gavin Phelan- April 2010
The Best Wedding Ever! My sister had her wedding reception at the Ballyliffin lodge over the Easter. The hotel venue is outstanding and the views from the drawing room are to die for. When we arrived to the hotel the hotel management greeted us at the door and directed all guests to the pre reception room. The function room decor is so plush and the food was fantastic. This hotel would have to be rated the best venue in the Donegal.
Niamh, Dublin - April 2010

We wanted to say a big thank you for helping to make our wedding day such a special day. You set out the function room beautifully and made all our guests feel very welcome and ran proceedings to efficiency, in particular a few guests commented on how grateful they were to have their dinner re- heated ( without them asking) as they had to feed the little ones first.
Ian & Rachel Goldby 5/10/09
Just wanted to thank you so much for all your help with zoes wedding. It was a brilliant day and everyone remarked on how good the hotel was and also on staff who were all more than helpful. A million thanks for making it such a brilliant day for our daughters wedding - a day we will never forget.
Maurice and Ciara and Zoe and Frankie Brooks - 12/09/2009
We held our wedding here early July and have to say Breda, Colin and the whole team did a fab job. From start to finish things ran like clockwork, the food and service were outstanding. There's nothing I'd change about reception here at all.
The hotel is small, just 40 rooms and if there is a wedding here that you're not attending it will impact on your stay. That said if you can stay here out of season or during the week it's a lovely place to stay though a bit pricey. Pay that bit extra for a sea view.
Be warned though if you're staying here during warm weather there isn't any air conditioning and the rooms are warm.
The surrounding countryside is spectacular, wonderful beaches and nearby golf all make this hotel a lovely place to stay
