As a former frequent visitor to Waterford city I was amazed when GrabOne advertised Waterford Castle & Lodges since I had never heard of the hotel previously. I bought the GrabOne voucher as I was very taken with the idea of staying on a private island. I stayed in a lodge with my partner and another couple. Having just returned home last evening I think I know why management have kept it a closely guarded secret - it is an incredibly unique place. We arrived last Friday in blazing sunshine to 310 acres of beautifully kept lush terrain. The lodges are beautiful and spacious, with all mod cons and 3 huge double bedrooms, 2 ensuite, as well as 2 more stand alone bathrooms. All the appliances are top of the range and beds & linen are top quality. While the 2 men in our party just had to eat/drink in the city I would have just loved to stay on the island for the whole weekend! Getting into the city was only a short hop in a taxi. The taxi drivers could not have been more friendly or helpful. The staff were extremely helpful from the initial telephone call to make the reservation right up to check out.
I cannot recommend this venue enough. If you are on a tight budget, even at full price if 3 couples make up one party it is very affordable. With the large fridge/freezer and full size cooker, you could easily self cater and with parking right outside your front door, carrying the provisions in is no hassle!
