It was truly a pity that we only stayed there for a night. Having planned a road trip across ireland, Ballyseede Castle was just a stop. We arrived late and were greeted with fresh coffee, teh rooms were the way you would imagine a castle to be and the staff was absolutely polite. We managed to get a good price... More

We went here for a close friends wedding, it is a beautiful place, the food was delicious, the staff could not do enough for everyone. Every member of their team were polite & friendly, nothing was too much trouble. Perfect atmosphere for such a special occasion. And to round it all off, they have an amazing Irish wolfhound called Mr... More

I had done extensive research on castles you could spend the night in (it was something on my bucket list), and I decided on Ballyseede. It was a splurge, but worth every penny and then some! Stately castle on beautiful grounds. Rooms were immaculate and very well decorated. It even had it's own little pub on site with Guinness and... More

Our family (2 adults and 2 kids 10 & 13) stayed here and we are saying WOW... This is a beautiful place. Our family room was spacious and well appointed. The parlor and sitting rooms were lovely, and our breakfast was delicious. Our kids were welcomed; the staff was kind and welcoming to all of us. We especially enjoyed their... More

I stayed here for 1 night, and I wish it was longer. It was beautiful. They have an amazing Irish Wolfhound puppy and another dog in the bar. The food is great. the 5 course meal was amazing. Try the Monkfish!!!! The rooms were great, they have just the right amount of the castle feel without being dowdy! My bed... More

It looks impressive on the outside and the inside is even better! The thick rock walls in the breakfast room make you really feel like you are in an ancient room. Our family of four stayed in one huge room with two king beds, a lovely sitting area and a very nice bathroom. Our daughters, 12 and 10, would have... More

We loved this Castle! It really is what you think of when you think Irish Castle. It is a smaller castle so you feel as though it is all yours when you are there. Our room was great and BIG. Dinner and breakfest was wonderful. The pub was so cute and cozy! Not much to do in the area (unless... More

Wonderful experience from being greeted by Arthur the Irish Wolfhound to the great food. The room was the best of our entire trip to Ireland. The rooms and surrounds are beautiful.

We held our wedding reception at Ballyseede Castle in July 2011. Ballyseede is the perfect venue for weddings because of its charm and elegance. The rooms are beautifully furnished and there is a wealth of history, making it a very interesting venue. The 2 dogs and shetland ponies in the garden just complete the scene. The staff are so competent,... More
