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.

Mary, Ashton, Paul, Esther, Joe, Marnie, Rory and all the staff and team at Ballyseede Castle.
Let’s not forget Mr. Higgins, Molly, Einstein and the real boss Bubbles!

Myself and my husband would like to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts! We had the most AMAZING time at our

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.

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 :)

We’d like to say a huge thanks to all at Ballyseede Castle for making our wedding day incredibly special!! From the moment we set foot on the premises, we were convinced that this was where we wanted to celebrate our marriage, due to the stunning surroundings and rooms, understated elegance and

welcoming and homely atmosphere and not least, our interactions with staff, particularly Esther and Stella who made us feel at home instantly and made an equally great impression with all our guests. In the process of planning, we’d like to especially thank Ashton, Mary and Marnie who dealt with every query and request promptly and professionally. We were blown away with how the venue looked on the day and can’t thank Paul and Eileen enough for how they welcomed us, helped guide us through the day and looked after our every need; even helping to remove a stain on my dress! We’re so very happy we chose Ballyseede as a venue and would wholeheartedly recommend it to other couples!! They won’t regret it! It’s an absolutely magical place and we look forward to visiting again and again in the future.

beautiful castle with great staff, delicious food, fabulous surroundings. We really couldn't have asked for a better place to hold our reception and would like to thank them all so much. Definitely the right decision for us.
on Wed, 14th of November, 2018
From the time we met Marnie and Rory and the staff months before our wedding, we were made to feel that this would be our home for the duration of our wedding reception. The grounds are out of this world, the old part of the castle is incredible and brings you back through the centuries. The new

extension as if it was always there. The bedrooms in the old side are very individual and charming, the new bedrooms are luxurious. One friend who is a wheelchair user said he had never stayed in such a large room and had no problem using his hoist there. They will be back to stay. The day of the wedding the guests were greeted in style, the original Red Carpet with the coat of arms was so authentic and was 'the real thing'. The drinks reception area was elegant and welcoming. The drinks flowed as agreed. The guests loved exploring the Castle so the time waiting for the meal flew. The Banqueting Hall was so elegant and authentic and with the candelabra lighting up each and every table, it was a walk back in time. The service was second to none and the meals were without flaw. The staff left the hall during the speeches which allowed everyone to hear them without interruption. We laughed with our friends and family and danced the night away. The Canadian guests were so impressed as were our Irish, Spanish and Maltese guests. It was as if we were the only guests in the Castle. The following morning was also excellent. The breakfast was cooked freshly and the tea and coffee kept coming.
I could not recommend Ballyseede Castle enough. It is an absolute treasure and it blew all of us away.
We will be back!

What can I say from the moment we drove through the gates at Ballyseede we knew there was no where else we would want for our big day. Nothing was too much for Marnie, Rory, Paul and staff. From start to finish I could not fault a single thing. The service was exceptional. The food, out of this

Thanks so much to Marnie, Rory and all the staff at Ballyseede Castle for making our wedding the most magical of days!

insight into what our big day would entail - we were also taken on a tour of the Castle facilities and grounds.

In the build-up to our wedding day, Mary, Ashton, Paul and all the staff were always willing to answer our questions and any detail that needed to be dealt with was done in a professional and friendly manner.

On our wedding day, the reception room looked resplendent, and it was clear that the thought, care and work that went into making this amazing castle room so welcoming and charming was a credit to the hardworking and friendly staff who paid close attention to every little detail.

The food was simply delicious and the portions were extremely generous. We were thrilled with the choice of menu made available.

There is such a lovely vibe to Ballyseede: from the presence of Irish wolfhounds at the castle's front door, to the donkey and pony sanctuary, to an authentic old world castle ambience. It was simply a thrill to have our wedding reception there. Plus, our guests were enthused about their day citing their experiences as memorable and hugely positive.

We look forward to returning to Ballyseede Castle for our First Anniversary!

on the service your staff provided to all tables, they were so attentive.

Thanks so much to Marnie and her team and especially to Mary, she was
fantastic throughout the organising. She guided us on what best to spend our
money on. The summer regal package was worth every penny. Guests were so
happy with the reception food and drink and the amount wine at the dinner.
Ashton was always so helpful over the phone or at reception and always had a
wonderful smile on her face. I honestly cant thank the staff enough for a
wonderful day. A day we will always remember for the rest of our lives.

Hi Marnie, Rory, Mary, Paul and all the staff at Ballyseede Castle,
The dust has settled now and our guests are all home from their "wedding holiday", and Cody and I have arrived in Miami. I finally have time to process the whole event and try and remember every detail, a lot of it is a bit of a

blur!
What I will always remember though is the absolute professionalism of all of the staff at Ballyseede. From start to finish, the day was perfect, there was no detail left out.
To have Marnie and Paul with me before the ceremony keeping me calm, as my nerves got the better of me, was a huge help. The Stone Room, The Orangery and the dining room were just beautiful, not to mention the bridal suite and in fact all of the bedrooms, the new ones especially.
Our guests were raving about every aspect of it, and Cody and I (and perhaps more importantly, my mother) were overwhelmed by how amazing the day was. It exceeded all of our expectations. I can't express my thanks enough and I could go on and on about all the things we loved.
To everyone at Ballyseede Castle, thank you for making our wedding better than we could have ever imagined,
Warmest regards,
Deirdre and Cody

My experiences with Ballyseede were very mixed, involving both extreme highs and extreme lows. Ballyseede was one of the first venues we visited, and we fell in love, but rather than rush into it, we spent the next couple of months visiting 15-20 other venues closer to our home of Dublin to see if

something else would catch our eye, it didn’t, we were in love. So we moved ahead, booking in 2016 for our 2018 wedding. We were not informed at that time that there were plans to extend the building (an additional 16 bedrooms), despite that fact that I explicitly asked about any planned works before booking (as we were aware of the ‘orangerie’ plans). In fact the first we found out about it was when we went to visit in March 2017, when a sizeable proportion of the garden was gone, and foundations were laid for this sizeable extension, when we went down for a visit. Nobody had contacted us before this. Despite the fact that we had paid an extra deposit to keep all bedrooms for our guests, and so this was important information to us (although structural changes to a wedding venue would be important to pretty much any bride). In fact, this new ‘wing’ was only finished a couple of months before our wedding. The entire thing was handled incredibly poorly and added a huge amount of stress to our planning. I wish I could say this was the only issue we had in dealing with Ballyseede, but it wasn’t. In fact there were so many issues that we seriously considered changing venues within 6 months to the wedding, and even checked availability of our second choice venue. Until about 2 months before the wedding I did not feel well treated as a normal client, never mind a bride, and genuinely did not feel that my custom was important to them. The saving grace was the beauty of the venue, coupled with the always excellent food, and the wonderful floor staff. I had to believe in my heart of hearts that the day itself would go perfectly and that our guests would not know the issues that I had had to deal with.


Much, albeit not all, but much of the issues could have been better dealt with if Ballyseede just had a dedicated wedding planner. I asked multiple times to deal with just one person – I specifically requested Mary as she was always helpful and willing to answer questions (thank you Mary), and always a welcome relief to deal with, however this did not happen, even when it was promised it would. This means that whoever happened to open the email (to a generic info@ email address) would reply, resulting in crossed wires, the person not reading back over the email trail to understand what was really going on/being asked, and in some cases, completely wrong information being given, all adding to the stress. The vast majority of the less-than-fully-positive reviews of Ballyseede that I have seen have been related to dealing with the same individuals.


Over the weekend (about half of our guests were booked from Friday to Sunday/Monday), I am happy to report, that the venue, service, food, were all flawless. In the few weeks prior, Ballyseede were even accommodating – it was extremely refreshing. On the day everything went smoothly, staff regularly checked in with us to make sure all was ok, and most importantly, we were able to have our ceremony outside, which was beautiful, if a bit snug for our 107 guests. The food was exquisite, and our guests since have spoken enthusiastically and often about the venue and food. The new wing, is fabulous inside, so much so that many of our guests thought that they were in the bridal suite, the rooms are so beautiful. The outside has been constructed to physically reflect the original castle, although it could do with some weathering to make it stand out less.


I love Ballyseede, it is beautiful, and the staff are brilliant, and I will surely visit again to stay in the castle that got to be ‘ours’ for a weekend. However, the stress added to our day with all of the issues raised in the planning stages will forever taint my memories of that time.


For the day I give a massive 5 stars (even the weather cooperated),in fact, if I could I would give it more, however, for the lead up & planning I give much less, so I settle at 4 stars overall.

My wife & I had our wedding on Friday the 2nd March in Ballyseede Castle. Unfortunately for us, that week was the most snow Ireland had seen in 36 years.

The day before our wedding, with a Red Weather alert in place, Marnie contacted us to reassure us that everything was in place, supplies were

Read More

in and staff were staying overnight to ensure the hotel could cater for our wedding. It was such a reassuring phone call to receive when so many things seemed to be going wrong.

From the moment I arrived at the hotel the day before the wedding, the staff put my mind at ease. As numbers were dropping by the hour ,they told me not to worry and they would work around it. They were so reassuring and told me to go and get settled in and we could take a look at the seating plans later.

My best man and I had some bar food which was fantastic. The morning of the wedding, we had many more cancellations and also people who were due to stay in rooms had cancelled. Unknown to me, the staff had been taking calls from other guests and not bothering me about it and had updated the seating plans and had reassigned rooms to other wedding guests who wanted to stay.

At breakfast I didn't really have time to have a cooked breakfast as I had to go and pick my parents up but the owner insisted on making me a takeaway sandwich. It was small touches like this all weekend that made the stay in Ballyseede Castle so enjoyable.

Our original band had to cancel hours before the wedding but I managed to get a replacement band and put them in contact with Ballyseede who sorted everything.

The meal we had was nothing short of sensational. My uncle is a chef and told me it was one of the best meals he had ever tasted. The attention to detail and service from the staff was just amazing. I couldn't speak more highly of the staff and owners of Ballyseede Castle. They made a wedding that was looking very unlikely to go ahead an amazing day for us and all our friends and family.

I have recommended Ballyseede Castle to everyone. The food here is to die for. The guests said it was the best meal they have ever had at a wedding. So thank you all again so much for everything.

Having spent two years planning our dream castle wedding, my new wife and I were married here on 31/12/2017.
I cannot say enough good things about the staff and management of ballyseede castle. From the beginning the owners of the venue stayed in personal contact with us and helped us in every way

imaginable with the planning and organising of our big day. Typical response time to emails has been around 5 minutes, which I must say is quite impressive from such a busy venue.
The staff and management were extremely competent and professional and really helped us to be able to enjoy our time at the venue.
Our guests on the big day were absolutely blown away by the majesty and elegance of the castle and everyone has been talking about it since. Our time at Ballyseede was absolutely perfect. Were we to do it all over again I would not consider any other venue.
on Thu, 14th of December, 2017
We had our wedding at Ballyseede Castle Hotel in October 2017 and really couldn’t recommend it highly enough. The venue itself is stunning, and right from the very first meeting with the hotel we were made to feel so welcome by Marnie, Rory and all the staff. In the run up to the wedding day

Read More

itself, we had a lot of questions which were always answered very quickly, and a lot of special requests which the hotel accommodated without any hesitation. We were also taken great care of during our menu tasting, and even ended up changing part of our menu based on it!

For any prospective couples to note, Ballyseede don’t do conventional wedding menu tastings, but instead will bring you in when there is another wedding on that may have a similar menu and serve you that meal in their restaurant. The reason for this is because it will give you a better representation of exactly what the food will be like when produced for up to 200 people, as opposed to a once off single meal preparation. We hadn’t heard of this approach before, but it actually makes perfect sense and also gave us great peace of mind of how good the meal would be. Along with music, the meal was the main thing we wanted to make sure was good and we were delighted when a lot of our guests said to us that it was probably the best meal they’d had at any wedding!

There were also so many lovely touches over the course of the wedding day itself that really added to the occasion, they were also very accommodating for a few special meal requests for some guests and offered so many different options for those with specific dietary requirements. They were so incredibly organised, helpful, friendly and accommodating which meant that everything felt so stress free and easy! The service was absolutely top class and of course the venue itself is beautiful and unique. If any couples are thinking of choosing Ballyseede for their wedding, all we can say is to go for it without hesitation, you won’t regret it!

Unfortunately, one of our guests was unable to attend the wedding due to a family member passing away on the day and Paul our wedding co-ordinator was able to organise to transfer the room to another couple without any hesitation.

enough.

There is a sense of home the minute you step foot inside the Castle and this is a credit to the exceptional staff and the lovable dogs on site. On each visit we were greated with friendly and smiling faces by the dedicated staff members. The owners, Marnie and Rory were always there to offer personal attention and facilitate our every need. The responsiveness to all emails and queries on the lead up to our wedding was extremely efficient. Reception staff went above and beyond to answer all queries with as much information/advise as possible and no request was ever too big. On our wedding day itself, each member of staff made us feel so special and the service was impeccable.

The setting is truly magical, there is ample photo opportunities on the grounds so you never have to be too far from your wedding guests when getting photos taken. The new addition of the orangerie is spectacular and we found it was the perfect setting for our drinks reception. Full of light and amazing views out onto the gardens.

The quality of the food at Ballyseede Castle is second to none. All of our guests commented on how amazing the food and the venue was.

We had our wedding here on July 1st. What can I say about Ballyseede that will best show how wonderful a place it is. From the moment we arrived there was nothing that was too much trouble. From the private dining area that my family had the night before to the assistance from Marnie the morning of

providing everything from hair spray and hairpins to giving the groomsmen a brushing with the lint brush in Mamie's lounge before the official photos were taken.

The meal was spectacular and the whole day was a dream. And so to Marnie, Rory, Mary, Ashton, Esther, Joanne and Derry we thank you all for everything you did to ensure that we had the best day of our lives. Thanks again for everything and all the best for you all in the future. Kindest regards, John and Lily Corbett

Thanks so much for all your help and for making our wedding day the best day ever. it was truly amazing and went beyond all our expectations. We thoroughly enjoyed the day, as did our family and friends. We just wish we could go back and relive it all again.

The staff were brilliant, we couldn't

have asked for more. From the first day we met Mary to all the staff checking if we needed anything throughout the meal. We got great reports from friends regarding the food and the pre-reception and the hotel in general.

A few things that we were really impressed with were
1. The service when we arrived at the hotel. Marnie brought us into a room and cleaned my dress and Conors suit and asked if we needed anything.

2. The food was excellent. People remarked on the vegetables, the huge portion of monkfish, the lamb, the quality of the wine and the vegan dishes.

3. The recommendations given to us in the run up to the wedding regarding the food, the personalised sweet bags, the table plans and Rory's suggestion to take the sketch and copy it, down to the print shop he suggested was perfect.

We both want to go to Ballyseede as a wedding guest now, we don't have much convincing to do for some of our friends already are looking to book.

Thanks for a fantastic day.

Thank you Marnie and Rory for an unbelievable wedding weekend in Ballyseede Castle last March.
Ballyseede Castle felt like our own home for the weekend and all of our guests commented on how relaxed and friendly the atmosphere was. My grandmother was treated like the Queen of the castle for the

weekend by the staff who were so kind to her.

Marine, Rory and staff,

We are emailing to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding day exceed our expectations! I cannot put into words how grateful we are for everything you did for us in the run up to the wedding, the day of and the days after the wedding...

Everything we needed you had with a smile and made it seem like it was no bother!
Our guests have said it has been the best food they have had at wedding and bbq. Your attention to detail and experience were so evident, everyone had the best day!!

There was not one staff member who was short of amazing but a big thanks in particular to Paul, Mary, Ashton & Derry who were fantastic! One of the girls (who with all the excitement I cannot remember her name) helped me throughout the reception and meal with my dress etc was a superstar!

Thanks so much again and we will be back as guests and no doubt at another wedding in the future, as one of our friends has said she will definitely be getting married there after being a guest!
Forever grateful,
Fiona

My husband and I got married here last June and we couldn’t praise it highly enough. The venue is so wonderful, a classic castle with beautiful grand rooms and a great out-door area and gardens. The staff everything under control for the day and put us completely at ease. They talked us through

everything and were subtly there to prompt us so that the night played out perfectly.. Nothing was a problem. With 10 minutes to spare we decided to have the ceremony out-doors meaning the staff had to rearrange the lovely room they had made up and move everything for 140 guest outdoors - not a problem. As the unexpected sun rose in the sky the bare arms and baldy heads below didn’t have to worry, staff were at the ready with sunscreen offering it to those they felt might need it. Drinks were constantly kept full (very important at an Irish wedding) Before the dinner, as everyone was being seated staff attended to us in beautiful front room offering hairspray, makeup top up and the girl who was taking care of us even put a plaster on my toe. The dinner was mouth-watering, really top notch. Advice throughout the night really helped things go smoothly and on time. With the staff so on the ball with everything the bridesmaids had the night off. It was so seamless, the venue is incredible, the service is of a very high standard, the food amazing, the staff are so professional, confident and most importantly a bit of craic. We had the most perfect wedding.

Being a local girl I have always dreamt of being married in the beautiful Ballyseede Castle and was lucky enough to have this dream realised with the help of Rory and Marnie. Although we married in Kerry we live in the U.K. But this was not an issue for us as the team ad ballyseede couldn't do

enough to help us with suggestions guidance and recommendations which far exceeded the Reception and extended into the whole wedding. Marnie has an amazing eye for detail hence the fabulous decor and attention to detail. The room exceeded my expectations , the food even more so and the service matched that same standard of quality. We had the most beautiful wedding day my only complaint is that it all went too fast! Thank you to all at ballyseede from mr and mrs lyons

plentiful. The whole castle looked stunning and we really felt we had the place to ourselves. The ballroom looked magical, everything is so authentic. The honeymoon suite was beautiful, luxurious and romantic. If you are considering the castle for your wedding, don't hesitate. We only wish we could do it all again, absolute perfection!

Magical, mystical and romantic location for a wedding.

Ballyseede Castle was our first choice Hotel to celebrate our wedding.
They completely exceeded our expectations from the moment we booked the hotel.

it was a truly romantic atmosphere. The staff were fantastic and friendly - they were so accommodating in every way. The food beyond excellent, we had opted for the option of free flow wine and champagne and when they said free flow it certainly was. I am delighted to recommend Ballyseede Castle to future Brides and Grooms. I would love to be planning our wedding all over again..
