Waterford Castle Hotel & Golf Resort

This beautiful hotel dates back to the 16th century, and is situated on its own 310 acre wooded island (complete with 18-hole golf course), reached by a private ferry.


The hotel combines the elegance of earlier times with modern comfort, service and convenience - and the location is uniquely serene; its quietness (and the golf facility for off-duty relaxation) makes the castle a good venue for small conferences and business meetings, but it is also a highly romantic location and perfect for small weddings.


All guest rooms have been refurbished recently and, although they inevitably vary in size and outlook (and may have some of the little quirks that are typical of old buildings), all are very comfortably furnished in a luxurious country house style.


Discreet, well-trained staff look after guests magnificently, and you should be sure of an excellent breakfast too.


Conference/banqueting (30/120). Golf, archery, clay pigeon shooting, fishing, tennis, walking, gardens. Pool table. Children welcome (under 4 free in parents' room; cots available; bay sitting arranged).


Rooms 19 (5 suites, 3 junior suites, 2 family, 4 ground floor, all no smoking). Lift. 24 hr room service. Turndown service. B&B from about €90pps. Open all year.


Munster Room:


It is always a very special event to go across on the little car ferry to this island hotel, where the peaceful grounds and the Victorian Gothic pile which is the Castle work as an aperitif for promising food.


The staff are friendly and welcoming, even the pianist raises a hand of welcome in the handsome and atmospheric dining room with its richly panelled interior. Appointed to the highest standard, it makes a magnificent setting for an atmospheric dinner created by Head Chef Michael Thomas and his team.


A set dinner menu is considerately priced by course, allowing for a semi à la carte selection; it is not long, with just half a dozen choices on each course, but it should be a very enjoyable experience with good coffees and petits fours to round off the meal.


The Munster Room also makes an atmospheric setting for a special day out to enjoy a traditional Sunday Lunch.


 

Seats 60; children welcome. D daily, 7-9 (to 8.30 Sun), L Sun only (12.30-2); Set D about €65, à la carte and vegetarian menu also available; Set Sun L about €32. House wines from €34. SC 10%. Pianist at dinner. Fitzgerald Room Bar Menu also offered. *Traditional Afternoon Tea 3-5pm daily, €20. Amex, Diners, MasterCard, Visa, Laser. abbreviations
