I love castles. And I adore castle hotels. So what better than to stay in Ireland than at a castle hotel? Ballyseede Castle Hotel, to sum it up, is in need of some maintenance and redecorating. The first room we were given, the Coghill, was excellent - except for an unnecessary and unwanted spare bed placed in front of the... More

Loved this place and will definitely be back on my next trip. Esther was very helpful recommending places to stop on my journey. Beautiful decor, food was classic and the bar was extremely welcoming. Everyone made you feel very welcome.

This a fabulous hotel. We only stayed one night but would love to have stayed longer. My wife and I were 10 years married. When we arrived at the room there was a complementary bottle of wine. The room was beautiful, containing a four poster bed with lovely views of the nearby mountains. The staff were professional, attentive and very... More

From the moment we checked in to the moment we checked out, we were treated as valued guests. Esther (our morning breakfast waitress) drew us a map with suggestions on places to see on our route to Dingle; Joe (also a breakfast waiter) gave us a tour of the banquet hall and tower area when we asked, "What's behind the...

This was an excellent stay. The staff was terrific and the setting is beautiful. Mr. Higgins and Einstein were the greatest greeting party a guest could have. We are planning to stay longer the next time we visit.

I recently visited here with a group of 11 for dinner. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. There's a really nice food menu including set menu prices. The staff were really accommodating allowing some of the members (children) to pick from a child's menu and also due to dietary requirements, pick a custom meal. The entire group really enjoyed...

Enchanting, magical experience, talk about being Queen for a day - well that was how every guest was made feel. Old world charm but up to date facilities make this hotel rare indeed. It's a proper Castlei in every sense of the word, with elegant, opulent interiors - luxurious in the extreme. Charming well trained staff. Who will make your... More

This was such a tremendously fun castle stay. We got there later than we had planned. But as we arrived we stumbled on a wedding party and quickly got including into their wedding. We enjoyed out drinks in the beautiful front room parlor and were quickly chatting and talking with wedding guests and enjoying their fun. Our room was beautiful.... More
