While planning our trip through Ireland, we wanted a night or two at a "castle". Ballyseede certainly fit the description. The staff was very helpful and the hotel was excellent. Our room was large and nicely filled with furniture. The pub dinners and the breakfasts were very good, Being able to use the lounges to relax in the evenings was wonderful. The castle dogs added a warm and friendly feel to the atmosphere. We would stay at Ballyseede Castle again.
