  • I've been waiting for over a month now for a refund from Ballyowen. Excuses after excuses have been heard, and I'm tired of it. Guests have been checking into the hotel, weddings have been held and are still currently being booked. I really don't see the hold up. I am so close to hiring a lawyer. From other reviews from other sites this isn't just happening to me. Event date isn't right, only filled in October 1 because wedding never happened.

  • I am so incredibly happy with my experience working with Ballyowen for our venue! What we loved from the beginning was how everything was included in our wedding package-from open bar, to transportation, to coordinator. I didn't have to think about all the details like table linens or food add-ons. It was incredible. Silje was my coordinator and she was so helpful. She always answered my emails no matter how ridiculous or rapid fire they were. She was there literally every step of the way, including the day of my wedding. She met me in the morning and stayed with me the entire day (in a non-intrusive way) until my wedding began. She walked me to the aisle and handed me off to Luis, the maitre 'd, who was also absolutely phenomenal. Luis made sure that my husband and I were never left wanting *anything*! He served us our appetizers during cocktail hour, made sure our drinks stayed full the entire night, and made sure that we had the BEST time. In all the advice everyone had given me pri... Read more

  • I honestly could not imagine having my wedding anywhere else but at Ballyowen Golf Club. From the moment we drove up to check out the venue, we knew that this was the place for us. The scenery alone is unlike anything you will see anywhere else. The day of our wedding was even more beautiful than the first time we saw this venue and I didn’t think that was even possible. Besides how beautiful everything turned out, the staff were so professional and accommodating. Silje our wedding coordinator and Luis our Maitre d’ were the best! They both made sure we had everything we needed throughout the night and took care of anything necessary to make our wedding day as smooth as possible. I couldn’t imagine our wedding at any other venue. It was absolutely breathtaking.

  • When we first walked into Ballyowen Golf Club for our tour we thought the place was gorgeous.. and knew it would be the perfect location for our wedding. What we didn’t know at the time was that the service of the staff would entirely surpass our expectations. Silje was AMAZING at dealing with all of my questions and her response time for my emails was at lightning speed. Luis was the best right hand man on our big day. He treated our day as if it was just as important to him as it was to us. Anything issue that popped up along the way was quickly handled and I never had to hear about it! He made sure we ate, even if it mean locking us in the bridal suite and guarding it so we weren’t bothered for 30 minutes. He held a plate of food for me so I could feed myself while I was getting bustled and made sure my champagne glass was always full. The staff of Ballyowen treated us like royalty on our wedding day, and I am soooo happy we decided to have our wedding at this location, just wis... Read more

  • This venue was FANTASTIC! Absolutely beautiful, professional staff, fantastic food, and the space was perfect for our size wedding. Silje was so wonderful and responsive to anything I needed while planning (including about 100 week-of requests and questions), and was MVP when she stepped in to save the day when our florist completely dropped the ball. She made sure every detail was perfect -- from all of the pictures and decor items I brought, our camp-fire s'mores set-up, and our requests for the outside set-up post ceremony. And then there is Luis!!! OMG was he fantastic -- and all of our guests noticed!! He literally did it all. So many little details -- he took care of our groomsmen while we took portraits, he made sure we got to try everything from cocktail hour (he even made sure I ate!!), our drinks were always fresh, he even took care of a sick guest. And the big things -- our buffet style dinner was EXACTLY how we envisioned it, everything was delicious and timely, ther... Read more

  • Oh man- where do I start with Ballyowen and their staff? I begin to tear up just thinking about how perfect our 6/14/19 wedding there was - it was just a magical day! The main reason for that, besides the beautiful location obviously, is the staff: Luis (maitre'd) and Silje (wedding day coordinator) specifically. From the very beginning of the wedding process, both of these individuals did everything they could, answered every annoying question possible, to ensure that we had everything we needed for our big day. They were both extremely responsive and helpful and patient - the perfect mix to my neurotic Plan-A self. My husband and I searched high and low for the perfect venue - not too wedding-factory-like, something rustic and not too over the top, a place that was small enough to be intimate but large enough to be host a big ass party. Balloywen definitely fit the bill - throw in Luis and Silje and there was honestly no place better. On the big day, Silje and Luis wouldn't leave my ... Read more

  • I got married here this May and it was such a beautiful venue. Two weeks later and I am still getting people complementing me on how the venue looked like it came from a fairytale. Ballyowen is gorgeous whether it's rainy or sunny, and that means a lot in NJ where the weather can be kinda dicey. It rained on my wedding day and felt like I was at a destination wedding in Ireland. The whole staff is very responsive and accommodating to your wants/needs. Louis did an amazing job on the day of my wedding making sure that we did not have to worry about anything. He's seriously a gift from God with how smoothly he had everything running and how well he took care of my husband and I. I truly wish that someone else I know would get married here just so that I can enjoy it as a guest and get to sit back and relax and take it all in because it was truly an amazing experience.

  • We got married at Ballyowen in October, and we had the most amazing day! The venue is absolutely beautiful, and the seasonal decorations complemented our decor perfectly! The staff, however, are what truly made our day unforgettable. From the beginning, Julie was great in answering all of our questions before booking. Once we booked, Silje took on the role of Wedding Coordinator flawlessly, and she was always available to answer any questions we had while planning. She was always one step ahead of us with logistics for day-of, and it is obvious she knows the venue and how to successfully execute the perfect wedding. The real MVP of our wedding day was Luis, the Maitre D'. He was simply AMAZING and really made sure we were taken care of every step of the way. When our band was stuck in traffic and going to be late for our ceremony, Luis dealt with everything and didn't even tell us until our ceremony was over! He snuck us away during cocktail hour and made sure we got a plate o... Read more

  • Let me start by saying my only requirement was to NOT get married at a golf course. Well.... I got married at this golf course and it was freaking gorgeous. Just the drive into the venue is overwhelmingly gorgeous. It looks like Scottish/Irish Landscape and it's even pretty on a cloudy day. The service was great, but be sure to double check with who will actually be running your event the day of. I thought it would be one woman and then she told me last minute before I walked down the aisle that she was passing off to someone else. That was incredibly stressful for me. She also didn't hand off the wedding bible that I made for the day-of coordinator, so that kind of threw me off. I actually had a migraine my entire wedding day due to this situation and the stress it brought me. THAT BEING SAID, the person who jumped in was AMAZING. A person fainted during my cocktail hour and he handled that situation so gracefully. My guests were so impressed with the way that Ballyowen staff ... Read more

  • We got married at Ballyowen in October and it was such an incredible experience. From start to finish Silje, our wedding coordinator, was absolutely fantastic!! She was so responsive to my every question, concern and suggestion. Luis, our matri’d the night of the wedding, was phenomenal!! Our guests to this day still comment on how considerate and accommodating he was to everyone, not just my husband and I. We were blown away by how gorgeous this venue was for the get go, and the staff we worked with just made it even better. I loved getting married here and wish we could do it all over again!

  • We got married Oct 6, 2019 and we honestly did not know what to expect. We heard good things from friends and positive comments online, but you never know. The process leading up to the big day was ok. I think Ballyowen and their staff do a pretty good job, especially Silje. But Crystal Springs Resort as a whole are not necessarily a breeze to deal with. Their customer service is not up to par. Anywho, the day of the wedding was just fabulous. And that is mostly thanks to LUIS and his staff, who did a superb job at making sure we were taken cared of at all times. The timing of things was excellent, the service was on point, and the food and drinks were everything we hoped for. The venue itself with its rolling hills and gorgeous views are majestic. Every guest commented on how pretty it is. All in all, I highly recommend this venue. You will have to be a little patient at first, especially if you have people staying overnight at one of their hotels. But other than that, everything w... Read more

  • Our wedding at Ballyowen was truly magical. The staff was great and went above and beyond for us and my guests. Luis (maitre'd) and Silje(wedding coordinator) were so helpful the day of the wedding and took care of all of our requests sometimes before we even asked for it! Luis especially was like a mind reader and had our preferred drinks ready for us throughout the day. Silje was very prompt to answer all my questions leading up to the wedding. My only major negative for the day was an issue with the wait staff during the reception. I found out after the fact that staff dropped some glasses or dishes and somehow my aunt cut her foot. Luckily her foot wasn't cut badly, but apparently, they merely handed her a band-aid and didn't seem too apologetic. I let Silje know about this after the wedding and she said they would address this for future events. There also was a little issue with extended family photos after the ceremony and they were accidentally ushering in family members that n... Read more

  • I have nothing but great things to say about my experience with Ballyowen and the staff. We had our wedding there recently and I can say that nothing, and I mean nothing, went wrong the day of. The staff was all extremely friendly and helpful. This includes every person we interacted with, from the person who opened the door for us, to the Maitre d'. Everyone was so helpful and accommodating. The site is beautiful, the grounds are perfect, and the views are breathtaking. One of the main focuses for us was that everyone at our wedding was taken care of and had a good time. The staff at Ballyowen delivered and then some. Every person we have spoken to has said how much of a great time they had at our wedding, and this is in no small part to the efforts of the staff at Ballyowen. Not a single person has said anything bad about their experience. This pleased us tremendously. Luis was a great Maitre d' and took extremely good care of us the entire day of. Silje was our coordinator and she k... Read more

  • My husband and I got married there in September.. the wedding was amazing the food and staff was great. The view and everything was good. Louis was so amazing at my wedding and handled everything that I needed him to do. There were a couple things that made me very upset. The minerals hotel is where all my guest stayed and the hotel was nice but almost everyone who stayed had a problem with there room. I had 130 people at my wedding on a Saturday night. I room blocked about 47 rooms for the weekend so yes that's a lot of money. As annoying and unorganized the hotel was we made it work. My grandfathers bed broke at 3am and had to sleep in the car, my aunts room and the ones next to her flooded.. the one thing that made me upset was that the shuttle bus never came back after it was filled and a large part of my wedding had to drive there still missing cocktail hour. That we payed for them to be there and eat. We also were shuttled in ugly school buses back to the hotel. I payed a lot o... Read more
