Stayed in The Inn at Dromoland last night and drove round the corner to visit the Castle for dinner. Well worth the visit, great food ad very helpful porter. The Inn and the Castle are like chalk and cheese.

It's a hotel, they meet you at the door and take your car away and take in your bags. I'd email them about tours or meals. It's pretty impressive.
