Starting with the ferry trip across the river to the beautiful grounds with deer and birds at sunset, to an amazing suite of rooms including the largest bathroom you could imagine, a charming small pub area and a delightful dinner...

We spent the day at Waterford Castle and Golf Course and what a day it was! Our day started off with a delicious Irish breakfast where the staff were very attentive and welcoming. We then followed up the morning with a fantastic round of golf and it is definitely the course that made it fantastic and certainly not my playing,... More

We took a Guys Trip from the Bahamas to Ireland and spent a day at Waterford Castle and Golf Course. It was worth every single Euro! The grounds and the Castle are both breathtaking while remaining authentically historic. We had breakfast before golf and the food was incredible! The Pro Shop was a must-stop and I ended up getting a... More

We stayed here for a wedding and had a fabulous weekend. We stayed in the castle and saw several rooms since we knew many guests there for the wedding. The rooms were great and fit with the castle motif- claw foot tubs, beautiful Windows, poster beds- they were clean, spacious, and cozy! They also have lodges in property which were... More

I booked on the day of my arrival and I got a great price. My family and I stayed in one of the lodges which was a great experience for all of us. There was some chipped paint on the walls but I don't think it matters that much. When we first walked in they already had the fire lighted.... More

This is a lovely hotel, we were here for a wedding and stayed in the apartments, the castle itself was perfect, massive fireplace in reception where we had a champagne reception. There's (big) rooms rather than halls but I really like that about the place. You had a reception area, then you had a room that was the bar, but... More
