Friendly... One of a kind experience I will never forget. Went for a wedding and it was perfect. Food, atmosphere and staff were wonderful and helpful. Worth the drive and money to stay here, it was incredible. Also, the breakfast was amazing.

Stayed: July 2014, travelled with friends

If you want to stay in a real castle, this could be your place. Good size rooms, beautiful grounds, excellent service. Definitely cater to groups. Being a couple, we ate in the bar area due to large group in the dining room; although the staff said if we let them know we wanted dining room, they would have accommodated us. Overall it was a nice one night stay in a real castle. It appears that the Irish wolfhound passed on in 2011, from the marker coming up the drive.

Room Tip: Wifi was available on main level, not in the lower level room that we had. We were using a voucher...

We stayed here on our first night in Ireland. Close enough to Shannon to do a little sight seeing before we arrived at the castle.
A little hard to find (Not on GPS as an attaction)
Staff is perfect. Loved having a Guinness with my 19 year old son in the beautiful bar. Dinner for 4 was better than we could imagine. Out of this world menu. We all ordered something we had never tried before. No One was disappointed. WE loved the sitting room and enjoyed another guest playing the piano. Highly recommend!

Room Tip: No elevator but there was planty of help to carry our bags.

My husband and I stayed here on a recent trip to Ireland. It really was a magical experience. From the four-poster bed to the decadent 5 course fine dining experience, it really didn't disappoint. Only suggestion is double check your booking to make sure you are staying in the castle building. They have a new, separate accommodation wing which is not attached to the castle. Whilst beautifully appointed, this other wing will not give you the "castle" experience and in our opinion it is worth spending that bit extra to stay in the actual castle itself. Dinner and breakfast were delicious. Staff were helpful - especially Esther on the breakfast service!

Room Tip: Rooms were spacious and well appointed. Choose a room in the castle itself, and not in the separate...

We stayed at Ballyseede just one night, and it was delightful. When we got there, we realized there was no air conditioning (I didn't even think), but the windows being opened made it comfortable. It was fun eating in a stone-laden breakfast room, and Esther was so nice and attentive. She gave us some great hints on what to see, and that was such a help. Thank you, Esther!

Room Tip: I think each room has a great view. The front where we were overlooks the horses and a field, and th...

My family traveled to Ireland this spring. Some wanted to stay in a castle. There are a number of choices in Ireland. Ballyseede Castle Hotel was discovered online and we booked. We had afternoon tea, their 5 course dinner and their Irish Breakfast. The service was excellent. Our rooms delightful. My young niece felt like a princess. I did not quite feel like a prince but maybe a little like a Lord. If we are again near Tralee we will certainly stop in again. The price was very favorable when compared to other Castle stays available in Ireland.

Room Tip: The family room is very nice and has a lovely view.

Having just been to my friends wedding over the weekend in this castle, it was incredible. The hillary room was spotlessly clean, plush & comfortable. As for the wedding, the moment we arrived which was early they gave us a room so we could get ready for the wedding, and our luggage was taken to our room when we were at the wedding. The staff of which i commented and many others, were possibly the most friendly and welcoming staff i have ever experienced. Nicola was our waitress, and we could not have asked for better, such a gem, and a credit to the castle. The food was utterly amazing, from starters, mains, desserts, and breakfast the following morning, which we got to the room, at the time we requested. also the bar staff, especially the tralee lady was fab too. Only negitive was i booked a twin room, but got a double. We didnt mind that though, and said it to reception and she was very sorry for the mistake, she would have moved us if we insisted but we didnt mind staying in the double. overall amazing. Thank you ballyseede and for making my friends wedding so special.
