On our girls trip around Ireland, we wanted to stay at a castle. Due to our budget we reserved one room for group of 4. We got a decent price and it included a delicious breakfast. The castle is about 15 minutes from the city of Tralee in a secluded and peaceful area. We parked our car on the castle grounds and immediately you’re greeted by the miniature horses and donkeys right across the castle. Once you enter the castle, they are two friendly dogs to greet as well. The staff was friendly too and if you meet Esther in the breakfast room, please make sure to ask her sightseeing tips - she's a hilarious spark :)
The hotel old in history and charming type hotel. It met our needs for two nights as a base to explore the Dingle Peninsula. Because we were a party of 4, they gave us the Family room which was located in the basement of the castle (formerly known as the servants quarters and felt quite haunted). The room was adequate – clean and comfy beds. The castle has many sitting areas to relax, chat and even wifi the net. The bar was full of guests…most wedding guests. The grounds were quiet to stroll around as well. I recommend this hotel as a base if you desire a different type of accommodation – a castle!
