Overall, my husband and I both enjoyed the stay at Ballyseede Castle. However, it wasn’t quite what we expected it to be going into our stay.

We absolutely don’t regret our stay at the castle hotel, and we’re curious to stay at more castle hotels in the future to compare our experiences!

Getting to the hotel was very easy with the signage and our car GPS. There is plenty of parking right in front of the castle and it’s a short walk to get inside.

We explored the castle inside and outside during our stay. The garden was incredibly peaceful, even in the light rain, and gorgeous to look at.

Inside was was elegant and magical, from the marble fireplace in the lobby as you walk in to the cozy room with a piano and couches to enjoy.

The room itself was very spacious with plenty of room to spread out, which was a treat after some smaller rooms we had previously stayed in during the Ireland road trip.

One night was the perfect length of stay for us to enjoy the castle and some slower pace time together on our honeymoon.

If you’re staying at the castle for a few days, I would recommend venturing into Kerry to explore a bit.

If you’re doing an Ireland road trip like we did, it’s about 40 minutes to the Dingle Peninsula and 1 1/2 hours from Limerick. It was the perfect stop between these areas for us.
