We went here for a wedding, our good friends son got married. A few of us played a round of golf the day before the wedding and thoroughly enjoyed the course. The food in the golf club was top notch and we would go again. The hotel was oldy worldy but clean, we stayed in the lodges and had a good time. the beer and spirit prices were a bit high, but you expect that at a nice place.

Fallen angel

This used to be one of the best hotels in the world, such a personal service, no detail missed, and an amazing location. I used to love coming here, but hasn't been back in nearly ten years, and how the mighty fallen in that time. I was amazed when we arrived and the receptionist looked at me askew when I asked if somebody could take our bags in. After bringing them in myself I handed over the car keys but was told the hotel doesn't offer a parking service. So after parking the car and walking back in the rain, and given our room wouldn't be ready for another three hours, we had some lunch and headed into Wexford city. We returned to the castle at 9pm, kids happy but exhausted, only to find that our suite, the Presedential, had no beds set up for the kids. After nearly an hour they got set up and we got the now exceptionally grumpy kids to bed. I'm phoning reception at the moment trying to get the heating turned back on as all the rooms are freezing. This used to be a hidden gem of a hotel, unfortunately now it's only a cheap paste reproduction.

Hotel quality self catering accommodation

Had a five night break with four other adults. The house was very comfortable and luxurious. The location of the lodges and castle are on an island serviced by a regular ferry just three kilometers from Waterford city. Easy access to city with a beautiful nature reserve right around the accommodation makes a perfect base to explore Waterford and surrounding countryside. Definitely recommended!
