Our family of four stayed here and had a wonderful time. Our children still talk about the resident dogs, Mr Higgins, Bubbles, and of course Einstein and his rocks. The breakfasts were terrific, the service so attentive and of course the house itself is such a treasure. Would love to return one day!

This castle is amazing! You will not be disappointed! It is like what you picture a castle to be, but more. It's not just the glitz and the glam, but to our delight, there was so much personal charm. Esther, one of the wonderful staff there, made our stay memorable. She invited my daughter to feed (and name) the resident...

This castle is beautiful! From the rooms to the dining area, bar, and grounds it is beautiful. not that far off of the road but the trees make you feel like you have really escaped. I love the castle dogs as well as the donkeys, who will let you pet them if you have some food :) Everyone was accommodating...

Spent New Year's Eve night at Ballyseede Castle. Think we were lucky to get a room last minute as there was a wedding there as well. Magical setting, beautiful common area living rooms, and a lovely bar that is also frequented by neighbors. Great chat with Tim behind the bar who some great advice on local sites. Dined in the...

We stayed one night in a family room. Room was huge, clean, and the bottle of water from the local well was a nice touch! Breakfast in the morning was top notch. The building was beautifully decorated for the holidays which just added to the ambiance of the place. Thanks for a great stay.

Went here for a recent wedding. We chose to stay at the venue for ease of access following the after party. On arrival, bag in hand , we were told we are staying in the gatehouse a good half mile down by the entrance! No offer of helps with the bags or nothing but expecting you to trudge along their...

My husband and I came to Ireland in May for a 10 day extended whirlwind trip. This was the third place we stayed on our driving tour of southern Ireland and boy was it great. The initial view of the building was just breath taking. You can see from some pictures posted, you really are staying in a castle. This...

We really enjoyed this hotel. As some other reviewers have mentioned, it feels like you're staying with friends who happen to live in a castle. So it's a bit like a quirky old house, but if you're open to that then it's really a fantastic place. And a reasonable price to stay in a castle! We stayed in the Yeats...
