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.

wedding. Huge special thanks to Mary and Marnie who on the day left no detail out. They were checking on us throughout the morning and making sure we had everything we needed. We didn’t have to worry about a thing for the whole weekend.

We said from the start we wanted to book somewhere with good food and Ballyseede did not disappoint. The food was perfection everyone was highly praising the food so thank you so much to the chef and their team.

On the Friday the night before our wedding we had an informal dinner in the Orangery for our bridal party, family and guests. We were even able to personalize the menu. Everything was organized to perfection.
Mary was my main point of contact when organizing my wedding. She was absolutely fantastic!! She was so prompt with her reply on any questions I had.

Our family and friends had a fantastic weekend thanks to all the staff and the beautiful setting. The dogs on the grounds made it extra special as we are both animal lovers -not to mention all our guests we trying their hardest to get the perfect selfie with them!

We were married on the 8th December 2018 and couldn’t have asked for a more Christmassy setting. They even made a playlist of my favorite Christmas songs (Including some Harry Potter ones ). We had our ceremony in The Stone Room-what an amazing setting, everyone was in awe at the beautiful rooms, it takes you back in time to what living in a castle would be like, but also has a modern touch. We stayed in the newer rooms which were stunning.

From our first visit to Ballyseede we knew it was where we would have our wedding. We cannot speak highly enough of their staff. They were fantastic from start to finish. They ensured our parents, families and ourselves had a weekend to remember.

day, the beautiful Christmas decor helped get everyone into the festive spirit. The rooms were so comfortable and expertly finished it was a real treat.

The wedding reception was beyond what we had imagined. Each one of our guests commented on how tasty the food and how much they enjoyed it.

It would not have been the same if we had our wedding anywhere else.

one thing I would change about the day from start to finish. I would like to mention in particular Joanne our waitress. She was so lovely and helpful, she did an outstanding job - I know I speak for the rest of the table when I say that. We did thank her on the night but she was so good I feel I need to mention it again :)
