About Ballyseede Castle Hotel
Ballyseede Castle offers you the chance to appreciate history, while relaxing and enjoying a break from hectic life. This history can be experienced by all hotel guests who wish to spend a night in one of the hotel’s historical and richly designed luxurious bedrooms - you may even meet our resident friendly ghost Hilda! Guests can enjoy the beautiful scenery, the elegant and spacious Ireland country house accommodation, sample fine food and wine in the Dining Room, and hear the stories and enjoy the craic in the Library Bar.
Ballyseede Castle is located on its own thirty acres of gardens and woodland. At the approach is an imposing entrance gateway with pillars of block granite. The castle stands on its own grounds at the end of a winding carriage drive. This elegant castle accommodation in Ireland looks as if it were built to outlive the vices and follies of man. It has been fought over, lived in and loved, and carries forward its ancient grandeur to this age.

Sorry it's taken me so long to get back with you. My sister and I had a fantastic time on our trip. The weather (with the exception of the morning heading to see Clonmacnoise and then heading to Dublin) was absolutely great. We were able to see the Cliffs of Moher within an hour or so of arriving in country. We did run into a spot of trouble leaving Doolin when I got the car stuck while trying to allow vehicles coming in the opposite direction more room, but fortunately, someone was kind enough to stop and help get us out. We also ran into a small traffic jam on our way to Galway on one of the smaller county roads when a flock of sheep escaped from the field, but we thought it was great. Other than that, there were no problems driving around. We managed to see the Burren, the Aran Islands, Connemara, Galway, and Bunratty Castle (the medieval banquet was great, highly recommend the experience) while out on the west coast. It was cold and rainy when we were at Clonmacnoise, but it was worth freezing to check out the ruins. We both had a blast in Dublin, and were able to see everything we wanted by using the Dublin Tour's Hop-on Hop-Off bus tour. Being able to walk five minutes down the street from the hotel to Trinity College (where we checked out the Book of Kells and the archives), pick up the bus and paying for the ticket once on board made traveling around the city very convenient (and the bus driver/tour guides were a riot). In a single day, we managed to tour Trinity College, Dublin Castle, St. Patrick's Cathedral, the Guinness Warehouse, Kilmainham Gaol and cruise Temple Bar (hit up the Hard Rock Café too). As for our accommodations, you did a great job with the selections! Our time spent at the Connemara Hotel was awesome- everything from the facilities to the dining was fabulous and Henry and Elaine were gracious hosts (so sweet and accommodating). Our Dublin Hotel was just as fantastic, and we loved its proximity to Trinity College and Temple Bar! The only negative I could think of is that there were places on our "to see" list that we didn't get to, and am already looking forward to the opportunity to return to Ireland in the future. We have told our friends and family about your wonderful service.
I took several hundred (no exaggeration) pictures and at least an hour of video footage during our trip, and would be more than happy to send a few of them for the website.
Thank you for all the help in planning the visit.
