2/10 Poor

Although Castle is displayed for the property. It is was a bed and breakfast within Castle estate. It is total misrepresentation by Expedia and Owners. This property is not 4 star. Problems with Bed and Breakfast: 1. The double beds were sunken on sides and raised in middle. 2. The bath tub is all worn out. (Pic) 3. Shower screen leaves a wide gap and floor goes all wet. 4. Basin light flickering all the time. Not sure who is to blame Expedia UK or Property Owner

EXCELLENT stay! We arrived extremely late after a long day sightseeing. We were greeted by an extremely friendly front desk clerk (wish I got his name) who immediately checked us in. The following morning, we went in search of the Castles dog. We found him doing his job, right in front of the castles entrance! Grounds were lovely, Irish people have to be the absolute kindest people on earth! I highly recommend Ballyseede Castle!
