We spent our first night in Ireland at Waterford Castle and wished we could have stayed longer! We were there with another couple to celebrate a 40th birthday and it could not have been more perfect. The island is truly a magical place and we were treated like royalty from the

Most castles 🏰 would not be described as friendly and inviting but Waterford Castle is most definitely the exception to the rule. From the moment we entered the foyer and were met by the huge log fire 🔥 we were charmed. The well trained staff were excellent from the

Not sure I quite understood the reference to docking vehicles. The ferry is very small, a capacity of perhaps 15 cars, but it does the crossing frequently all day and night. It only crosses a short stretch of water and there is plenty of parking next to the hotel. The only road on the island is one way, so on leaving the ferry you head to the left and just follow any signs you see. Hope that helps.

"We stayed in the Roche room overlooking the kitchen exit. But the view was still nice."
"Beautiful views of the river from the Castle"
"Get out and walk the grounds. Ask for tips on dining off site...they have good advice. Be nice to the barman in the pub."
"Book the restaurant before you arrive as can be hard to get a table..."
"If you must stay here, get a room in the castle and give the lodges a pass."
