Set in the Irish countryside, just outside the town of Tralee, famous for its rose festival, Ballyseede Castle is surrounded by 30 acres of woodland and rich history. Entering the gates of the castle, you are immediately set back in time. Doric columns, ornate cornices, oak staircase, marble fireplaces, vintage furniture, and paintings create the atmosphere of the old world's charm and splendor. Here, you'll find the grand old times harmoniously blending with the benefits of the modern-day. Not surprisingly, this romantic setting makes it a popular wedding destination, as well as a getaway for families and couples.
You can choose from one of the 23 en-suite bedrooms, with 16 more due to open in March 2018. Fine dining with traditional Irish cuisine is offered in the 2-star AA Rosette O’Connell Restaurant. Ballyseede Castle is a member of the Manor House Hotels Ireland that has 30 luxury boutique hotels all over Ireland.
Try the nearby world-class golf courses of Ballybunion and Killarney, ride horses on the rugged mountains or at the beach or go for a scenic walk tour. If you would rather sit and watch, you can see the unforgettable performance of folk dance at the Siamsa Tire theater or watchdogs racing at The Kingdom Greyhound stadium.
