Island Luxury

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 13, 2006

Being from Waterford I would never really have reason to stay in hotels locally, but there have been one or two exceptions.

I threw a big birthday party at Waterford Castle and they very kindly put me up in the Presidential suite for the night. It really does represent luxury at its very best.

Waterford Castle is currently the only five star hotel in Waterford City and it is situated on its own private three hundred acre island which is reached by a members and guests only ferry crossing. The Castle shares its ground with the exclusive Waterford Castle golf club where you can play a round with the best of local golfing society.

As you drive through the elegant country estate, a winding drive leads to this hotel and you are likely to spot pheasants, foxes and rabbits along the way. The Castle itself emerges from the trees and as the heavy double wooden doors open you find yourself in a huge hallway with a great log fire burning.

There's a cosy residents bar and a very grand oak panelled dining room with live piano music each evening. I will write a seperate review on the main restaurant here. You can also choose to wander down to the golf club and eat more casual fare there.

My suite was divine with a big four poster bed where Brad and Jennifer used to stay before they became Brad and Angelina. There was a very large sitting room and a bathroom with a claw footed tub in the centre of the floor. From each of the windows you could see nothing but remarkable country island scenes. Here you will be guaranteed absolute privacy while all of the nightlife of the vibrant Waterford city is just a short taxi ride away.

Unique Quality: Gosh I don't know any island outside of the Maldives that houses just one perfect hotel. Book in here and see for yourself.
