We stayed in the Castle the first weekend in December after attending a wedding there. The room we stayed in on the first floor was huge with a big bathroom and really inkeeping with the whole castle experience. The whole place was beautifully decorated for Christmas. The dinner was great, service was excellent and the whole atmosphere was so welcoming.... More

Thank for your email. We are disappointed that you followed through on your threat to post a negative comment on trip-advisor. You booked a room with us some time ago at €138 B&B. This was confirmed to you on two occasions and once by me a few days before arrival when you asked me to arrange something special for your... More

Recently stayed here for a wedding. The food was 5 star and the accommodation was excellent. Would definitely stay here again. Mr Higgins and Einstein were more than welcoming. Beautiful surroundings.

Ballyseede lived up to (in fact beyond) our expectations. The rooms were huge, clean, comfortable and charming - just a delight to settle into for the evenings. The food was amazing although we had no 'formal' meals there. The Irish breakfasts were huge, and were served up with a good dose of Irish humour! The bar snacks were excellent, both... More

My husband and i stayed at Ballyseede for only one night as part of a four-castle tour of Ireland. This was my favorite castle, by far. The grounds are beautiful, and our room was huge! The staff was outstanding, especially Esther and her brother Joe who serve in the restaurant. Joe was kind enough to accommodate my vegan diet by... More

I stayed recently as part of a wedding. The rooms are lovely, lots of character. Staff are nice and friendly. Two adorable, friendly dogs live at the castle too. We got breakfast delivered to bedroom the next morning ... It was on the small side... 1 bacon, 1 sausage...etc. We both would have liked a little more. I'd stay again... More

This is hands down one of the COOLEST places we have EVER stayed!! We took what we later realized was the back way in (thank you navigation), so as we were taking a bunch of dirt roads out into the middle of nowhere we wondered what we were getting ourselves into. It turns out if you take a different exit,... More

First ever Castle stay and wow our expectations were exceeded. The rooms and amazing, the food is to die for and friendly staff are second to none. The full irish breakfast is enormous. You could not beat it for value for money. The bar snacks - well I don't know why they call them bar snacks - are fantastic and... More

My parents, husband and I had the place nearly to ourselves (off season is great!) and the staff was very helpful. It was a bit challenging to find until we realized our GPS had it as a landmark (I should have written down the coordinates) but once we did our stay was a delight.
