We stayed at Ballyseede for one night between stays in Dingle and Galway. To get to the castle you drive through a charmless town, down a small lane and emerge onto a green lawn surrounded by forrest.
The castle is low and moss covered, and has an eerie haunted feel that makes it seem more authentic. Inside is warm and charming with a restaurant and bar. We ordered dinner and drinks from the bar and ate in the adjoining sitting room. It was super comfortable and relaxing.
Our room was beautiful with a canopy four poster bed and nice linens and pillows. The room also had an enormous soaking tub.
Overall, it was a wonderful place to stay and I wish we'd booked another night.
