on our honeymoon--we decided to be lavish for a night and treat ourselves to this amazing stay at waterford castle. it was expensive, but we were ready for it. they even upgraded us since it was our honeymoon, and gave us a delicious dessert with "congratulations" painted in chocolate on the plate. everyone was SO sweet and friendly--helpful, accomodating, polite, engaging. we absolutely loved our stay. the room was GORGEOUS, quiet, peaceful, clean, huge! the shower was odd--gorgeous old tub, but shower curtain that wrapped in a tight circle around you--the floor was soaked each time we used the shower. i felt pretty bad! that was the ONLY weird part--but def not enough to soil this review. i would go back immediately if i could. we loved our stay, the food, the comfort....simply perfect. go here now!

The stay at the Waterford Castle was very nice and a great experience

A group of us (Girls in our 20-30s) got a discount voucher to stay in one of the houses on the grounds, we really had no idea what to expect but we were very impressed, even the boat over to the island is a nice touch, the Island feels untainted and private, the houses on the grounds are really fab and modern and decorated to the highest standard, only bug barer was the prices in the hotel we though it was very expensive, we also got food out of the golf club one evening and we were able to collect it and bring it back to the house staff were quite helpful and did plate everything and tinfoil it for us to take it away which I believe they generally don't do. Would we stay again absolutely!

Unlike a lot of Castles in Ireland which are now hotels, all rooms here are in the Castle, rather than in a modern block of bedrooms. Staff were very helpful. We requested sheets and blankets rather than a duvet, and this request was acknowledged by email but not carried out. The person doing the Turning Down left the sheets and blankets in the room, appears making up the bed was beyond them. Breakfast was lovely, freshly cooked to order, good secition of cold items on the Buffet also. Very good value.

Thank you for finding the time to post your review. I was pleased to read that the castle held an "olde worlde" charm and that staff was found to be helpful. I must apologise for not fulfilling your request for sheets and blankets. I can assure you that making up the bed is not beyond our turn down attendant. It seems that we are responsible for inadequate communication in resolving this issue. On a positive note we are grateful to hear your compliments in regards to breakfast and it is reassuring to hear the words - very good value.
We do look forward to having the opportunity to welcome you back in the near future.
Kind Regards

My wife, daughter and I were traveling in Ireland this November and had an open day to visit the Waterford Crystal factory. We stayed so long that we needed a place for the night and found this wonderful place - the Waterford Castle Hotel. The staff was very helpful and pleasant and provided excellent service. Our breakfast in a wonderful castle dining room was a special treat. Thanks to all at the castle.

We had the most lovely experience at the Waterford Castle Hotel. The rooms were spacious, clean and very comfortable. The staff was gracious and attended to our every need. We had breakfast in a beautiful glass enclosed dining area and the food was had lots of wonderful choices. The grounds surrounding the Castle are lovely and so is the golf course. Getting to the island by ferry, just adds to the charm of the experience. The Castle lent itself to a Downton Abbey type of experience for me.
