Large room, beautifully appointed, guarded around the clock by "Arthur" an Irish Wolf Hound, who actually appeared very bored by everyone's presence. Typical Irish breakfasts, we had a light dinner one night in the Bar. An Irish Christening and reception was going on in the hotel with a large local crowd but everyone made sure our needs were met and... More

We had a nice time at this hotel. The dogs were fun-Arthur the Irish Wolfhound and Einstein who likes to fetch pebbles. Room was very large with high ceilings. Breakfast was good.

We just returned from a wonderful trip to Ireland. We had the most fantastic time and Ballyseede Castle was the highlight of the trip. What a wonderfully unique find! Since we were taking the "rare" trip to Ireland, we were willing to splurge for the experience of staying a few nights in a castle. I was surprised at the value.... More

We stayed one night here, in a "family" room. On arrival - staff seemed a bit rushed (possibly understaffed?) to get us to our room. The room was large - but not well ventilated, and the bathrooms had some mold issues. The room smelled very musty - and we tried to open the windows - but most had been painted... More

If the right investors put some Euro into this potential gem it could be wonderful. The rooms are a wonderful size, you truly get the whole castle feel while staying here. We originally booked for two nights but left after one. We checked in toward the later end of the evening and were greeted by the largest dog that we... More

My wife and I decide at the last minute to take a break in the country. Support the economy and all that. We contacted Ballyseede Castle directly and spoke with Marnie, who turned out to be the owner. She gave us a great deal of two nights bed and breakfast and we had a wonderful meal in the restaurant. It... More

I booked a night at the Ballyseede Castle as a Christmas present for my boyfriend as neither of us had ever stayed at an Irish castle before. On the day I booked, full payment of SEK 2,089 (EUR 220) was debited from my visa card. On our arrival date (3 hours before arrival), the hotel informed us that the hotel... More

The interior decor was wonderful; I loved the lobby and sitting room where you can play chess. Our room was nice with a garden view. Our room's lock was a little wonky, but the staff fixed it promptly when alerted of the issue. I have no complaints at all! The hotel itself is a little hard to find and signage... More

We went to stay at Ballyseede Castle as part of our daughters wedding weekend. We had stayed at another hotel on the Friday night before staying at ballyseede. We got a warm welcome there and they made a fuss of her which made her and us feel special. As the wedding party we were given a complimentary brandy for our... More
