Waterford Castle is on an island with its own chain-ferry, which runs frequently. Once on the island, a sweeping drive leads up through woods to the main Castle building which is imposing and dramatic. It is a picture-perfect castle house with stone-framed mullion windows, historic plasterwork ceilings, country house mahogany furniture, Turkish rugs, and sparkling Waterford crystal. Our bedrooms were... More

We stayed at the self catering lodges at the Waterford . Self catering means you do everything , plus pay a small electricity fee. This is just like walking into IKEA. Using the washers was a long wait and on the average 2 hours per load. The breakfast at the castle was astonishing. ! They had artisan cheeses, homemade bakery... More

We woke up to the birds singing and as we looked out our window at the lake it certainly gave us the sense of peace and relaxation. A very quite place.The beds were comfortable and the... More

Stayed here for one night as part of Ireland tour and were very impressed with the lodge we were allocated. The lodge is well equipped clean and modern with everything one could require with 3 comfortable bedrooms. We had an evening meal in the castle, which was excellent. We would consider this for an extended golfing family break in the... More

We stayed in the lodges, part of the Waterford Castle, on the island in the middle of the river. Very nice, with 3 bedrooms/baths in each lodge, with large lounge area, kitchen, and even laundry facilities. You take a ferry from the mainland to the island. The castle is wonderful, with very nice ballroom, and the food was great. We... More

A friend just visited and reminded me that I should provide a review of my own experience on TripAdvisor, albeit my visit was quite a while ago. I have to say this was the nicest place I stayed in Ireland. The service was friendly and attentive, the grounds were gorgeous, and it felt like I was in a period drama.... More

This place was bar none the best place we stayed at in our two weeks in Ireland. If anything, it made everywhere else we stayed pale in comparison and I wish we had worked it out to stay here at the end of our trip instead of near the beginning. The trek over, including the ferry over followed by driving... More
