We had a wonderful stay with two young children. The family rooms are very well sized and equipped. Our children loved the resident dogs, ponies and donkeys. We had our breakfast and evening meal there on both days and it was perfect, would have no hesitation to recommend.

An Absolutely Amazing, Wonderful Home from Home (without the housework) made even better by the Tireless attentions of the ever-willing staff and management. From Breakfast to Dinner and beyond, everyone at Ballyseede made us feel Special, Comfortable, Valued and above all in these perilous days, Safe. Working with the current restrictions cannot be easy but they carried on without complaint sometimes in the face of some less than understanding clientele. It took us eight months to get away for a break and our most sincere thanks to Marnie and Rory for keeping the hotel and staff together. Special mention to (in no particular order) Ester, Joe, Tim, Derry, Stella, Paul, Jessica and all the Household staff who looked after us so well. Not forgetting Mr Higgins and Miss Molly who cleared plates and entertained in the garden. Hail, Rain or Shine Ballyseede Castle is the perfect place for a relaxing break. Will see you all again in May 2021 (if not beforehand)

Vegans happily catered for at Ballyseedy Castle.
Stay was wonderful..luxurious and calm. My room was upgraded and the four poster bed was an experience in itself! The Vegan menu was much appreciated and the open Lasagne ... delicious. Thank you Ballyseedy Castle for an unforgettable experience.
