Just wanted to thank all the staff at Ballyseede for the magnificent way you looked after us all
The whole day was choreographed brilliantly, and the way that you helped us all through the various stages was wonderful. The staff were fantastic, helpful, attentive and very supportive.

control of the initial reception in the Orangery was very impressive, as, of course, was the main reception and meal in the Ballroom.

Speaking of the meal, we thought the food was absolutely excellent, and we have no idea how you were able to very successfully take individual orders for courses just before the meal was served - I have never experienced that before at a wedding, very impressive.

The Stone Room is a brilliant venue for the Wedding Service, and it was a pleasure to have the whole day ‘under one roof’ - especially as it rained incessantly on the day. Of course, that could have felt very claustrophobic, but again, the staff at Ballyseede helped immeasurably. So a wonderful day was very much helped by your continual help and support.

I have absolutely no comments to make about how you can make what you do better - suffice to say it was perfect.

We had the most amazing wedding at Ballyseede almost two months ago. From day one, we felt we were in good hands. The team was responsive to our ongoing needs and changes. The venue is beautiful and the Orangerie and the new wing really add to the whole experience. The food was fabulous, the team

My husband and I held our wedding reception at Ballyseede Castle, Tralee recently and I just could not recommend this venue enough. From start to finish it was a wonderful experience. All of the staff were so friendly, helpful and organised. Planning a wedding, as exciting as it is, can also be a

stressful time and the staff at Ballyseede did everything to counteract this. In the run up to the event nothing phased them (even changes at the last minute!) On the day itself everything ran according to plan and the attention to detail by the hotel was just fantastic. The drinks reception was a lovely, relaxing affair, the reception room was just magical, the guests were treated to a fabulous dinner and the rest of the evening was just brilliant and there was singing into the early hours of the morning. Our bridal suite was stunning - we only wish we had spent more time in it. Ballyseede castle truly is a stunning location for a wedding and a venue with exceptional service. I would highly recommend it.
