Affordable Castle Stay Jan 24, 2014
My partner treated me to a stay here in November 2013 for my birthday. In comparison to other castles in Ireland the price was very reasonable. We stayed in a superior castle room at a reduced price on

In terms of the location, it's probably about 5 mins drive into Tralee town and is off the main road so taxi's probably need to be pre-booked. We had the convenience of the car so didn't have to worry about it. It's not within walking distance of any shops, cafes or restaurants.

The room was large and clean with a gorgeous, big king size bed. The bathroom was nice and new however there was no bath and the water pressure in the shower could have been better.

The Castle has a fantastic bar which is small and intimate and was a very nice setting for a nightcap or two.

In terms of service we were waiting around for quite a while to be checked in. The breakfast was nice however I wouldn't say there was anything service wise which made the hotel stand out.

Overall a nice stay in a very beautiful castle.
