The hotel is very nicely appointed. Our room was not glamorous, but the bed was so comfortable! The staff is very friendly. Esther, our waitress for breakfast went out of her way to make sure our day was filled with meaningful site seeing trips. She gave us insider tips on where to go and how to get there and avoid...

Ballyseede Castle was absolutely fabulous! The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was very spacious and comfortable. The dining room was very lovely and the food was amazing! The stone walls of the castle are exposed in the dining room and the breakfast room and reminds you that you are steeped in history. The castle gave us a... More

Castle is nice with some small gardens in the back. second floor rooms look nice, but we were in a basement. Our window looked out on to a staircase and railing. Not worth the money at all. The bar area was nice with good food. I was looking forward to staying in a castle, but this was a big disappointment.... More

My friends and I stayed here for one night during our first visit to Ireland, and it was fantastic! The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, and the castle itself was a delight to explore. We loved the impromptu tour of the castle's dining and reception area after dinner. The sunset from the dining room was beautifully framed by the... More

Our visit to Ballyseede Castle was one of the highlights of our summer vacation to Ireland and Sweden. Rooms spacious and clean. Breakfast was incredible. We would stay again and love to try out sister properties.

Stayed here during our tour of Ireland. We checked in well after 8 P.M. after a very long day of driving and asked about places to eat. We were told by the staff that although the bar was due to close food service they would ensure we could get food along with a cpuple other small groups that followed us... More

Had a wedding here recently and it was everything I ever thought a castle would be! The venue was stunning and the wedding hall was just so so pretty. The meal was gorgeous and the service quick. The staff were very friendly and attentive. I will be back!

My family and I just returned from a 10 day trip in Ireland and this hotel was by far the best property that we stayed in. It was not the most expensive hotel nor the most luxurious, but it was the highlight of our trip because we truly felt welcomed and at home there. What made the experience unique was:... More
