Waterford Castle

"We just had a lovely stay at Waterford Castle. The Castle itself is a delight and will transport you back in time. The location is fabulous and oh don’t get me started on the food, really lovely! A big thank you to all the staff who made us feel so welcome and relaxed." March 2014


A Little Piece of Heaven

"Two years ago my husband I visited Waterford Castle for the first time. It’s fair to say we were immediately mesmerised by this beautiful enchanting castle on this own private island just minutes away from the hubbub of Waterford City. Such was our enchantment we decided then and there that this would be the place we would marry. So on New Year’s Eve just past surrounded by our closest family & friends we tied the knot and will forever smile as we remember dancing the night away in the castle’s main hall. The food is truly outstanding and as my husband is a head chef to say the expectations of the food were high is somewhat of an understatement. Sebastian and his team treated our guests to a culinary delight and even now two months after the wedding people are still remarking on how outstanding the food was. The planning of the wedding was a joy. Mirka and Philip at the castle were always on hand and always available to answer questions or assist with queries. Oftentimes they added greatly to discussions resulting in truly wonderful results. Over the past two years we visited the castle on many occasions with family and friends. Each of the 19 rooms in the castle has its own unique charm and character. Choosing favourite room would be like choosing a favourite child it’s simply not right or fair to do so! The Roche Room, The Rose Suite, The Wedgewood, The Ormonde and of course the Presidential Suite have all hosted us on occasion and we found each room and each visit faultless. The welcome, the location, the staff at Waterford Castle are all second to none. As people who have travelled the world staying at some very fine establishments Waterford Castle rates amongst our favourite. The only thing we regret about our wedding and visits to Waterford Castle is that we are now speaking about them in the past tense. We are already looking forward to our return to this enchanting little hideaway. Thank you to all the team at the castle for making a 16th century feel not like a hotel but rather a very grand home."

With Delight I will Return!!

"We stayed for a family wedding at the end of December... What a treat. We stayed in the lodges the night before the wedding and they are fantastic. When we arrived the fire was on as was the heating,the place was very cosy. The lodges are very modern and beautifully decorated. They are
really comfortable and just a 5-10 min walk to the castle. The castle itself is spectacular. Walking into the reception area is just gorgeous. We stayed in the rose suite with its four poster bed, huge bedroom and large separate sitting room. The wedding was magical. The food was delicious both the wedding meal and breakfast. The staff were very friendly. The ferry ride across adds to the magical feeling of this place. I cant wait to return." January 2014


Wow!! This place is spectacular

"My husband and I were in Ireland for 10 days for our honeymoon and out of all the locations we stayed and visited, Waterford topped the trip! We stayed in the Rose Suite and it was perfect. We only stayed one night and wish we could have stayed longer. It was quite and absolutely beautiful. Food at the restaurant was the best I've ever had, breakfast was excellent, the view was amazing and service was impeccable. We will definitely staying here again!"
