Almost an accidental visit.

A little way out of town but this was by far the best place to stay.

Great hospitality, food and service.

I'll be back.

We were a party of ten. We stayed "out back" in the condos, not the actual castle. When we went to have a snack and drink at the castle, there was not enough room for us; so they set us up in the front room with the cozy fireplace. No complaints here - we found it quite relaxing.

The service was friendly, well above average and we were thrilled with our stay overall. With that said; For ten, we paid $358 euro total to stay for one night (for two condos). Our "snack" consisted of cold sandwiches and drinks (2 drinks each). Our small dinner bill came to 450 Euro. Drinks were 12 euro each.

If not for the high price for bar food and two drinks each, we would have been 100% satisfied with our stay. We spent 8 full days/nights in Ireland and stayed in two other castles. Waterford Castle is overpriced in regards to food/drinks.

The grounds: nice, quiet and deer are everywhere. We enjoyed a walk or two around. Would stay here again but probably not rely on their food service for our meals.

Room Tip: The condos are fine for a stay.

We stayed here as a bit of a treat given the gorgeous location and the chance to stay in a beautiful castle.

A short car-ferry ride over to the castle and very impressive grounds. We had an executive room which included a lounge room, big bathroom, and huge bedroom. Cleaning was a little average, but it was mostly clean.

The staff were quite stand-offish and not really friendly, and the food overpriced - we ended up eating in Waterford central rather than at the castle.

The location was sensational - we wandered around the grounds and it was so peaceful and quite relaxing. Would recommend for a special occasion.

This beautiful castle is located on the outskirts of Waterford on its own island. There is a walking path around the castle worth taking.

What a once in a lifetime experience! The setting is breathtaking. We loved the private ferry ride over to the island. The drive up to the beautiful castle is the prefect entrance to a dramatic place! We were pampered in the Rose Suite. Our favorite part was the ornate bathroom. We thoroughly enjoyed dinner in the castle and would recommend eating there instead of going back into the city. The nature walk around the island was amazing, and to be able to look out our room window and see the trees was priceless.

Room Tip: Great way to celebrate any occasion~
