As Kerry's only castle hotel, the magnificent Ballyseede Castle offers an authentic castle wedding experience. Close to Tralee on the famous Ring of Kerry, it is only 15 minutes from Kerry Airport and not a million miles from anywhere...
Set on 30 acres of ancient woodlands and manicured gardens, Ballyseede Castle Hotel is beautifully placed in secluded grounds and is the perfect choice for a castle wedding.
When you pass through the gates of Ballyseede Castle you know you are entering a most special world steeped in history and splendour. From the moment you enter, experience a warm welcome and be greeted by our Irish Wolfhound Mr Higgins and his friends.
The luxurious Ballyseede Castle is a family-owned and operated hotel. Marnie and her husband Rory, along with their dedicated team, have awakened the hidden gem that is Ballyseede Castle making it Ireland's leading destination wedding venue and hotel since 2005.
