So Beautiful
Reviewed 4 days ago

We spent an idyllic night at this magical hotel. The weather was perfect as we drove our car onto ferry and made our way to another world. The castle is lovely, the grounds are lush, and the staff greeted us warmly. Our room was beautiful--traditional furnishings, everything plush and comfortable. The view was just so peaceful, and so quiet, that you could hear every chirp of the birds. We booked on a whim and didn't take dinner, but were able to stroll down to the golf clubhouse and have an early, casual dinner. (If you want to do this, think ahead. They close early). Our order was taken by an adorably wide-eyed teenager. (When I asked him what the animal head with twisted horns was that hung from the wall, he said, with great earnestness, "A cantalope? No. Wait. That's a fruit.") The next morning, the breakfast was perfection. There were plenty of homemade additions to the buffet section, and a nice menu to order cooked food. Everything was well-prepared, and served in a beautiful breakfast room. The castle was abuzz with preparations for a wedding that was taking place later in the day. It was fun to see the flowers and place settings. What a lovely site. We enjoyed every minute of our stay.

Great Location

We only stayed one night, which was too short. We stayed in the Suir Suite, beautifully decorated and very stylish. One the stains on the carpet are a bit grubby. We enjoyed Afternoon Tea, room Service and Breakfast. A walk round the Island is a must.

A very special wedding weekend!

We had the pleasure of holding our wedding reception / wedding weekend at Waterford Castle in October last year and we had such a wonderful experience! Not only is the castle a beautiful and hidden gem, the staff is exceptional and very attentive to the needs of all their guests. This is what attracted us to Waterford Castle in the first place as the service is fantastic and we felt we would be in excellent hands! The rooms, food and ambiance were superb and it was the perfect location to host family and friends from Ireland, the US and overseas. We are still talking about it and looking over our photos! Our coorindator, Linda was very helpful and gave us time and attention other venues didn’t seem to offer when we were looking for a location. We had such a great time, as did all our guests and we can’t wait to visit again soon! Big thank you to all the staff for making our day so enjoyable!

Stayed in this wonderful hotel for two nights, 4th & 5th of June,from check in to check out, everything was perfect. Friendly , professional & courteous team , met the wonderful GM, Bernadette Walsh, she was in no rush & spent time talking with us on further plans & the family’s achievements to date. The owners certainly have embraced the past & brought the renovations into our modern expectations of a five star hotel. Wonderful, stylish, classy touches & the waterford glass chandeliers are a wow factor. Thanks for the wonderful hospitality & dreaming of return visit.

Amazing setting

We stayed for a couple of nights, great breakfast, beautiful location and lots of wildlife on the island. Highly recommend it (and bring a camera!), one of the nicest places in Ireland. Thanks for a lovely stay!
