We nearly got married in Venice! It was provisionally booked! However, a chance scroll on Instagram one day led to one of the best decisions we could have made, on the most important day of our lives. We always loved castles, medieval history, Irish heritage but we thought a castle wedding might

have been out of our league. I downloaded the brochure, looked at the pictures and packages, showed Nessan, and we knew that this was the place before we even went to see it.

We felt so welcomed from our very first visit, the castle has a classy but relaxed and warm atmosphere. It was absolutely magic. I know that Mary, Marnie, Paul, Hilla and Rory deal with many brides and grooms but we always felt special and important, I have organised weddings and events in my own job and I was so impressed with the advice and kindness coming from this dream team! Esther, Joe, Tim are amazing too!

Our wedding day was all we dreamed of and then some, we know that Ballyseede Castle was a massive part of this dream. Our guests are still raving about the venue, their rooms, the food, how did you find it they asked? Like the place was a secret uncovered! Several people told us that it was the best steak they ever had which is such a huge compliment. All you want for your guests is a beautiful place to spend a day and night and good food and wine! Our friends have now booked the castle for their 2021 wedding!

Marnie and the staff came and walked dad and myself to the ceremony room, which is so beautiful. I felt like a rock star. I never expected to feel so special. I will also never forget the hug from Esther on my way to marry my best friend. We had gotten to know her a little during our little visits over the year! There were just so many fabulous little touches from the staff, too many to list!

Marrying at the magical Ballyseede Castle was the best thing we could have done. There is something so special about Ballyseede Castle and it's people.

throughout. From the time I arrived on the Friday the day before the wedding and checked out on the Sunday I was treated like I was the only Bride in the world. Their care went over and beyond. Down to all the little touches. I can't even put it into words how happy I am with our day and it was all down to the staff at Balllyseede. Our family and guest are in awe, and cant stopping praising us for treating them to a wonderful day. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for our amazing day.

of their experiences from the ideallic setting, food quality, staff friendliness, accommodation quality to the relaxed atmosphere. The gardens and Castle provided a perfect backdrop for photos. The meal was divine and service was 5-star with meticulous attention to detail. Packages were reasonably priced considering. A special mention to the fact that the hotel opted not add the government VAT increase from 2018 to our bill final bill as we had signed our contract ahead of the increase announcement. However, the hotel would have still had to pay the additional VAT cost on our behalf!! Wedding coordinators are friendly and welcoming, really helpful and relaxed. We loved every moment we spent there and wouldn't change a thing.
