A bespoke castle wedding in Ireland

4 star Luxury Castle Hotel

Ballyseede Castle is steeped in history. It was the chief garrison of the legendary Fitzgeralds, Earls of Desmond, many of whom refused to swear allegiance to the crown, which resulted in the infamous Geraldine Wars that continued intermittently for three centuries.

Following the defeat of the Desmonds in 1584, the castle - plus 3,000 acres of land - was granted as a perpetual lease to Robert Blennerhassett; the rent being one red rose to be presented each year on Midsummer’s Day.

This noble family and their descendants occupied Ballyseede until 1966, when Arthur died and bequeathed the estate to a distant relative who sold it. It was at this time that it was converted into a luxury hotel.

Ballyseede Castle today, is a family-owned and operated hotel. Marnie and her husband Rory, along with their dedicated team, have awakened the hidden gem that is Ballyseede Castle - making it Ireland’s leading destination wedding venue and hotel.
