Ballyseede Castle

In common ownership with Cabra Castle in Co Cavan (see entry), this is a very likeable hotel of character with 15th century origins.


Set in 35 acres of parkland and gardens on the edge of Tralee town, it is spacious, stylish in the traditional style, and very comfortable, with quirky features that give a sense of fun - you may well be greeted by the resident Irish wolfhound (or a less prestigious but equally friendly canine companion).


There’s a relaxed and airy country house feeling about the place and it would make a good base for playing the championship golf courses in the area, or visiting the nearby Dingle Peninsula and the Ring of Kerry.


An unusual cultural attraction is that they put on a dramatic production every summer and this is a great success - it is often a Shakespearean play, or perhaps an adaptation from a classical novel such as Pride and Prejudice.


They also have a particular reputation for weddings, although the small number of rooms means that most guests have to stay in other accommodation locally.

Rooms 23 (all en-suite). B&B from €75pps. Children welcome (under 3s free in parents room, cot available free of charge). Free broadband wifi. Closed 4 Jan - 4 Mar. MasterCard, Visa, Laser abbreviations

This family-owned and managed hotel is in a lovely quiet location, convenient to Killarney town, yet - thanks to a long tree-lined avenue and parkland which stretches down to the water - it has a charmingly other-worldly atmosphere. The original house was built by the H ...
