Seat of the Lecky family for three centuries, it is now a popular wedding venue. Gothic arches and Tudor chimney stacks add unique character, and the house is set in well-maintained grounds; promising first impressions are well founded.

Ballykealey Manor Hotel

Seat of the Lecky family for three centuries, the present house was designed by Thomas A Cobden, built in the 1830s as a wedding present - appropriately enough it is now a popular wedding venue. Gothic arches and Tudor chimney stacks add unique character, and the house is set in well-maintained grounds and promising first impressions are well founded.


The hotel changed ownership in 2007, but the previous owners had completely refurbished the hotel and new rooms added since then do not detract from the original house.


Bold decorative touches in the entrance hall set a confident tone that is carried through into spacious reception rooms, furnished in an elegant mixture of contemporary style and period features, combining comfort with a friendly atmosphere.


Individually designed bedrooms are luxuriously furnished, decorated in keeping with the character of the house and have all the expected amenities.


Conferences/banqueting (20-260). Wheelchair access; Rooms 12 (1 junior suite, 4 shower only, 2 non-smoking). ; children welcome (under 6 free in parents' room, cot available without charge). Pets by arrangement. B&B about €70pps, ss about €20; no SC. Closed 24 Dec.


The Oak Room:


This aptly-named restaurant is in what was previously the drawing room and library, and retains many original features including 10 foot solid oak dividing doors, hand-carved oak bookcases and fine cornices and mouldings - which, together with a welcome open fire on chilly days, makes a handsome setting for enjoyable food.


Menus offer a good range of dishes, the cooking is good and service professional - making it a popular dining spot for both residents and non-resident guests.

Seats 32 (private room 32). D Fri, Sat & Mon, 6-9; L Sun only 12.30-3.30. D A la carte, Set Sun L. House wines €18. A la carte bar menu available 12.30-9.30. Closed 24 Dec. MasterCard, Visa, Laser. abbreviations
