About

Ballygrant Inn & Restaurant is a family run Inn on the Isle of Islay offering relaxed, informal accommodation, good local food and a great selection of Malt Whiskies. The Inn is situated just outside the small village of Ballygrant, 3 miles from Port Askaig ferry terminal.

The Inn is set in two and a half acres of its own grounds off the main road, with attractive kept gardens, enclosed by heather clad moor and natural woodlands. Bunnahabhain and Caol Ila Distilleries are nearby for the Malt Whisky enthusiast. There are seven lochs within the area for trout fishing and opportunities for walking abound. The archaeological site of Finlaggan, where the Lord of the Isles ruled the western seaboard of Scotland for some 500 years is also nearby. The Inn is an ideal place to stay when visiting Islay.

The Inn has seven bedrooms for letting, a mix of double, twin, single and family rooms. Our restaurant overlooks the grounds of the Inn and offers the best of local and Scottish produce. Our award winning Whisky bar has a range of over 400 different Whiskies and also has a good selection of beers, wines and spirits. We also have a Whisky lounge and resident’s lounge. Both the bar and lounge have log burning stoves. Free Wi-Fi access is available throughout. The Inn offers friendly, relaxed and courteous service within cosy and comfortable surroundings. Good food, hospitality and relaxation are the hallmarks of a stay with us!

    Quite a big selection and fair prices. It's true that the waiter was not overly friendly, but he was not unfriendly either. The food was good too.

  5. Hemdl did not rate this hotel Connoisseur

    Extrem umfangreiche Whiskykarte mit fairen Preisen. Wer gerne am Abend dort noch einen Malt genießen will, sollte auf jeden Fall im Ballygrant Inn vorbeischauen.
    Das Essen sollte vorangemeldet werden, sonst wird es schwer dort überhaupt etwas zu bekommen. Der Barkeeper war mitunter unfreundlich und ging ohne uns zu bedienen, was die Stimmung etwas trübte.

    very nice whisky bar with a good choice (Ardbeg lord of the Isle tasted there). 

    Restaurant is standard. 
    I remember the boss dog, very funny who plays a lot.
    Overall a nice place even though not so interesting to dinner here.
