We loved our stay at Ballyseede Castle. We arrived a day early due to a mix up our travel agent made with the reservation, but the staff was most accomodating. Luckily an entire tour bus that SHOULD have been there the night we arrived had a mix up as well and wasn't there. We stayed in the Goldsmith room on the top floor and facing the front grounds. The castle felt truly authentic and not too "hotel-like". The staff were GREAT. Joe and his sister Esther (I think?) were beyond helpful and friendly. We even took a drive on the Connor Pass to Dingle on Esther's recommendation. Beautiful. If you do go, give Mr. Higgins (the VERY large Irish Wolfhound that lives there) a pat for me, but guard your breakfast, he's hungry!

My sisters and I stayed 2 nights in this beautiful castle. We were greeted from our car by "Mr Higgins" the resident Irish Wolfhound who led us to the front door. Our room, on the top floor, was large light and airy and furnished very elegantly. We were to find out at breakfast next day that there is a resident ghost "Hilda" and we were in her room! The staff were very helpful and friendly and went out of their way to make us feel at home and special. Cannot wait for another opportunity to visit Ballyseede Castle again. Highly recommended.

Such a beautiful time.!!

The staff was fantastic. We got to know each of them and felt like we knew them for life. Tim, Paul, Eddie and Esther, thank you for making our experience sooooo memorable. The stories you shared made this a most memorable experience

We also loved meeting Mr. Higgins and Einstein. They just added to the whole charm. I don't think we will ever forget them. Can't wait to go back.

My wife & I along with my 2 cousins and their wives stayed there and we all found the castle to be beautifuln with a staff that was second to none. Tim the bartender took us for a personal tour giving us the history and origins of the castle. My cousin & I went ot play golf the next morning @ 7:00 and since breakfast wasn't served until 8:00 they made breakfast for the two of us and it was ready at 6:00. I went to tip the person who helped us and he refused the money and said to have a good day. When you go there look for einstein and his creazy dog trick.

This was our taste of royal living. It helped that we received a little discount from manorhousehotels.com. Everything about our stay was wonderful. The staff was helpful, the room was outstanding and the food was exceptional. We stayed in the French room, which was large, well-appointed and overlooked the back patio area. Mr.Higgins greated us even though it was raining and followed us as we walked around the castle grounds. Inside there were many beautiful rooms to explore or just sit and have some refreshment. We decided to stay for dinner and were delighted with the delicious three course meal. (A little pricey, but hey!) It was worth it. Dining and watching the Shetland ponies on the front lawn area was a treat. Breakfast was also a outstanding, especially when served in the stone room. We highly recommend this as a place to stay. Great location to take trips to Dingle and other areas.

Room Tip: The French Room is a great choice. Not only is it large and beautiful, but because of its location has very good WiFi connectivity. (This is not true of ALL rooms at Ballyseede.)
