Uniquely situated on a private 310-acre picturesque and enchanting, sheltered and secure island, on the river Suir, and set on a 15th century castle, the Waterford Castle is a distinguished hotel that offers luxurious accommodations. Surrounded by woodlands and adjacent to a challenging 18-hole championship golf course, what was the former home of the Fitzgerald family, who during the 15th & 16th Centuries governed most of the south of Ireland, has been cleverly renovated to restore its former splendour and to perfectly combine the gracious living of an elegant past, with every modern comfort, service and convenience.
Guests arrive through a tree lined drive that introduces them to a grey stoned facade, and mock turrets shrouded in ages old ivy. A carved granite archway next leads them into the grand entrance hall and drawing room, dominated by a huge, open log fireplace, and furnished with fine Irish antiquities, 17th century tapestries and oil paintings in keeping with the charm and character of the hotel.
The 19 Castle rooms are bright and airy with stunning views of the surrounding estate. Decorated with style, they have been designed for guests to live, rather than stay, in a luxury world class hotel. Dining at Waterford Castle also offers unforgettable moments. Original oak panelled walls and ornate ceilings create a wonderful ambiance to enjoy innovative flavours, and provides an opportunity to sample the best of tradition and contemporary cuisine, on both Irish specialties as well as the finest international ones.
The location, splendour and comfort make Waterford Castle Hotel a rare and wonderful experience, your escape, home and paradise.
