Ballyseede Castle, one of the best-known castle hotels in Ireland, has a history dating back to the 1590s. Set in thirty acres of native woodland, Ballyseede Castle has been wonderfully transformed into a luxury hotel.

Ballyseede Castle, set in the heart of Kerry, offers you the chance to appreciate history, while relaxing and enjoying a break from hectic life. Come and hear the stories, sample the fine cuisine and enjoy the 'craic' in the heart of Kerry, Ireland. County Kerry, traditionally known as "the kingdom", is situated in the extreme southwest of Ireland.

The entrance is via a broad flight of steps, flanked by two lions. Inside the lobby, Doric columns lead to an elegant wooden staircase of fine oak joinery, which is almost unique in Ireland. The 23 luxurious bedrooms have been refurbished and are individually decorated with a perfect combination of taste and imagination.


This Kerry castle is located in one of the most popular locations in Ireland. Family-run with a relaxing feel. Mr. Higgins, the Irish Wolfhound, is always playful while his sidekick, Einstein, is usually up for some fun and loves catching stones; I ended up throwing stones for hours in the drawing room!
