After reading the reviews for Waterford Castle we decided to spend one night during our trip around Ireland. The hotel is beautiful and the grounds were lovely but we were not very impressed with the overall experience. We've stayed in many luxury hotels around the world and can't understand why this one was so costly, especially considering the lack of outstanding service. When we arrived we were immediately put off by the bellman who seemed annoyed by our large suitcases. We were then disappointed by the small room but looked forward to exploring the grounds and having a nice dinner. We walked around the property which is magnificent and returned for an early dinner in the lounge. We were not so thrilled to find the same disgruntled bellman working there but managed to have a nice meal despite his abrupt attitude. We very much wanted to have the same wonderful experience as many reviewers here have but unfortunately of all the hotels we stayed in during our trip around Ireland, the Waterford Castle was the most disappointing. We will not return...
