The hotel is located on an island, its not too big and very stylish. It doesnt have facilities like a gym, or a swimmingpool, but you do have old rooms and green surroundings, we loved it and stayed here for two nights. The service was good, we loved the food and were happy that we made this stop. For those who don't play golf it is worth a stop for one or two nights!.
Wife and I spent the 1st day of the new year here and it was a wonderful romantic getaway. A wonderful location and atmosphere for intimate escapes. Enjoy a romantic walk around the property and observe such beautiful gardens.
Stayed recently for our wedding anniversary. Room was "The Ormonde" it was absolutely fantastic so spacious. Dinner was delicious as was breakfast. We went for a lovely walk and saw the resident deer so beautiful. Staff were so attentive. Check in and Check out was seemless. Have a wedding to attend here in March cannot wait to return.
The view and the location of the hotel was amazing. Picture perfect Irish Castle we stayed in the presidential suite for our 2nd honeymoon, the attention to detail was incredible. On top of that the food at the restaurant was fresh and tasty, and our server Valentina was knowledgeable and very friendly!
As the title says, Waterford Castle hotel is just simply perfection. I had the most wonderful three days in this lovely place and I was very sad to leave. My husband had booked a Deluxe suite as a birthday treat and oh wow,what a treat. The suite consisted of a huge bedroom,a lovely sitting room,a bathroom that was a room in itself and a great hallway. The period features in all the rooms(including the bathroom) have to be seen to be believed,I was blown away by the furniture,the decor,the exquisite attention to detail in all the areas. And combined with great modern touches- two televisions and numerous sockets for all our techie stuff. The food is just superb,some of the best I have eaten anywhere,and I have stayed in other resorts of this calibre. Waterford Castle Hotel's offerings are sublime.The afternoon tea,the breakfasts,the fantastic dinners,lunches in the Bar,along with some very decent pints and very good wines- I was in gourmet heaven. The walks around the Island,with the cottage,the lighthouse,the badgers setts,by the golf course and along the river are wonderful and very picturesque. As we approach Christmas,the huge Christmas tree in the main Reception area and covered in hundreds of lights is so beautiful. What I absolutely loved here is that the Castle has used tree cuttings and woven Christmas lights through them- so ecologically friendly and no additions to landfills. So many small but wonderful details stand out from the three days: -the Sanitan hand basin and toilet in our bathroom,the chest of drawers in same and complete with an old fashioned jug and wash basin. - the cedarwood and lemongrass soap -the hallway with the painting of the jockeys racing on the beach and the table and stool near it -the blue velvet squashy sofa in the living area,with the green marbled table and two smaller matching tables -the cream antique furniture in the bedroom and the wonderful headboards -the changing area in the room -the perfect temperature in the suite,never too cold or too hot and easily controlled by us -the marmalade at breakfast -the great cold buffet for breakfast,so much choice -the Castle brown bread -the little amuse bouches and sorbets at dinner,the champagne sorbet,wow. -the plentiful vegetables with dinners Finally,the Castle hotel staff are a credit to the hotel itself. From Reception staff to the waiting staff in the restaurant and at breakfast,nothing was too much trouble for us and all with big smiles and pleasant chat.A special mention to the lovely bar man(whose name we did not get) who was a pleasure to chat to and looked after us so well. We will be back😁😁😁…
