The stay in the castle lived up to my expectations! I felt like Queen for a day!
Reviewed 10 hours ago

As someone who has always been intrigued by castles, I booked our stay in the castle with much anticipation. We stayed in the Wedgewood Suite and it was marvelous. The suite was large with wonderful views of the property. We took walks around the property and enjoyed the yard games in the front of the property. Not only was the property very special, the staff was also first-rate. The bed was comfortable and the room was quiet. I slept well while staying in the castle.

stunning accomodation we really enjoyed the lodges. huge house. Bed was to die for so comfortable and lavish. The hotel was a short walk but lovely. Beautiful bar and so much to choose from with the menu and drinks.

Recently spent 3 nights in one of these lovely lodges. Really beautifully finished with top of the range appliances, 4 bathrooms/wcs balconies accessible from all bedrooms, beautifully landscaped grounds set in a peaceful private island setting, a real get away!

Waterford Castle - Lodges
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We had a lovely week (mostly) self catering in the Waterford Castle lodges. The lodge itself was spotless if a little ageing in parts, however you won’t get better value and quality for the price! We requested lodges next to the playground as our group had two children under 4. The castle itself is magical and the pint of Guinness is really the best I’ve ever had. Sit down in the lobby, enjoy a pint and feed the massive fireplace. The Island is a great base to explore Waterford and all it has to offer.

A word of warning: if there is a wedding on in any of the days before during or after your stay (which there always is), you risk serious sleep disturbance. Two nights in a row we had banging doors, loud heels (they are terraced lodges), shouting and beeping of cars up to 3am. I called reception when our smoke alarm was chirping at 5am one morning, but I was reluctant to squeal on a group of young people having a once in a lifetime wedding. I told the Castle reception on checkout and was only told that I should have called reception at any hour and that the girl would note it on my reservation.

Having gotten married in the Castle in 2012, we have since made 3 (was was now annual) trips back to the castle and the lodges, we will strongly rethink about next year. Putting a wedding party (top table) in multiple lodges next to a family staying for a week is very poor and an unsatisfactory response from reception has tainted the stay.

The Lodges at this island Castle

We stayed three nights in one of the lodges in the grounds of this island castle.The “lodge” is in reality a modern three bedroom house all en-suite and an open plan kitchen/living room of great size with excellent facilities.The lobby of the hotel retains a wonderful castle authenticity.A golf club in the grounds has a good clubhouse serving reasonably priced food and drink.The island setting with its nature reserve provides for interesting exploratory walks.The island ferry operates a great 24/7 service taking a few minutes to cross.
