We had an absolutely wonderful stay. Everyone was very pleasant and above and beyond helpful. The food at dinner and breakfast was delicious. We stayed in the Suir Suite. The bed was extremely comfortable. The views out the main windows were amazing. We spent some time near the main fireplace in the castle sitting and talking to other travelers. Very comfortable and cozy. We missed the chance to walk the grounds during the day, but we did venture out in the evening after dinner for a walk around the grounds. Although dark, we felt safe and enjoyed the peacefulness of the property.
Thank you for making our stay an absolute memorable one!
Stayed Sept 20, 2016
We stayed in the Rose Suite and thoroughly enjoyed all of the amenities at the resort. The staff was so very helpful and accommodating.
Stayed here in The Rose Suite with my fiance. We were really treated like King & Queen of the castle. The meal was 5* from start to finish as was the service.
We had a very enjoyable and comfortable stay. The dinner was delicious ... a really memorable meal. Very good service in a authentic castle setting. A great experience....... the only fault was the room was too hot at night
I stayed 4 nights at one of your lodges with my oldest son. We had fun walking and plauing golf. The accomodation was superb and the island is a magical place. Hopre to be back soon with the whole family.
The magic starts as you take the short ferry ride to the island. The grounds are impeccable and add to the sense that you are entering a world outside of our time. The castle facade is gorgeous and well maintained. The rooms are gorgeous with comfort to match. The service is superior from beginning to end. The food was superb. Wish I could have stayed for an extended period but so content with my one night. Best night while Ireland!
We had a very enjoyable experience at Waterford Castle! We felt very pampered yet the price was reasonable. Everyone was friendly and the rooms were very clean. The castle has many old features that have been maintained so you really get the feeling of staying in a castle. We definitely recommend getting the dinner! It was very good...and again felt very pampered!
The setting of the lodges is lovely. They are big, bright and spacious. I was impressed with the level of items in the kitchen - the amount of times I have stayed somewhere that only has one pot - not here a good selection of items that enables you to be totally self catering.
If I had a negative its that the houses need a little TLC - a lick of paint and a maintenance person to check all is working as it should be - our boiler had too little pressure to work - with the gas fire it wasn't an issue but it could have been.
Wow! What an awesome property! The second of six hotels we stayed at during our trip, Waterford really set the bar high in terms of overall.experience and certainly provides an authentic castle experience. The decor, staff and food were exceptional and we really enjoyed our stay.
My wife and I stayed at Waterford Castle Resort on our first two nights in Ireland. We totally enjoyed everything during our stay. The guestroom was comfortable, the restaurant outstanding, and the staff was fantastic. Even though their rates are high, it is well worth it to treat yourself to this resort on your next trip to Ireland.
My wife and I booked a two night stay in August 2016 and could not have enjoyed our experience any more. First, the staff is truly exceptional. Without exception they were incredibly kind and helpful throughout. Second, the resort was an experience we will not forget. The accommodation was excellent where we enjoyed a spacious and comfortable room in the castle. We fell in love with the grounds that provide a tranquil setting and plenty of room to enjoy a nice walk. I played a round of golf one morning and really enjoyed the course which was well maintained and very fun to play. The clubs provided by the rental set were nicer than my clubs at home - another nice surprise! The clubhouse also provided a nice venue to enjoy a Guinness after the round. The restaurant provided us with a top-notch experience wowing us both at the quality of cuisine.
The only suggestion I have for improvement is that we noted some of the furniture in our suite was a bit outdated.
We will definitely return some day. I highly recommend this property for anyone remotely considering a lovely getaway to the scenic southern coast!
Hi We had a lovely time dining in the castle and the food was delicious . I was disappointed that the four poster bed was only a double I was expecting at least a king. Also the heat in the room was much to warm we actually got no sleep as it was so warm, we were delighted with the weather we got two lovely days. The castle is situated in a lovely setting.
Great modern lodges with lots of space and bathroom/shower for each room in the house. Great facilities! Beds a little small...Beautiful location!
Five-star service, five-star venue
We loved our time at Waterford Castle. we had the King & Queen of the Castle - Two Night Break package staying in the Executive Suite. We loved the suite, we felt like we really were king & queen of the castle.
Both the bedroom and living room were tastefully decorated in period style, the bathroom, with its clawfoot bathtub was divine, the view from the windows was fantastic. We did not leave the island during our stay. We enjoyed the wonderful breakfasts, dinner both nights plus afternoon tea. The presentation of the dishes was outstanding, the quality of the food very high, the service first rate. All the staff, at every moment of our stay were very helpful and friendly. We loved walking around the island, seeing the deer and just unwinding in this idyllic setting. Unfortunately we where deposed just 2 days into our reign and now being king and queen is a wonderful memory that we will have with us for years to come.Thanks to all the wonderful members of staff at Waterford Castle for making our stay memorable.
