We felt like royalty staying in our first castle here. The porters & staff are top notch. Their friendliness & attention to detail were impressive for example during breakfast the construction workers started making lots of noise & they had them pause until after breakfast. It was very hard to leave here & not compare our stay at The Malton...

This is a very pretty castle with a great location to nearby sites such as the Cliffs of Moher and Sky Drive. Our room was quite large and well appointed. The included breakfast was definitely a highlight run by a woman who I'd trust to run a nation. The food was fresh and delicious. The front desk/Manager went above-and-beyond the...

Everything about Dromoland is designed to enhance your experience as a guest. The staff are friendly and helpful. The castle and its grounds are beautifully maintained. The food is delicious, with afternoon tea standing out as a particular treat. Live music in the bar was also an unexpected perk. It was great to see many local families here celebrating special...

We got married here ten years ago and live going back to stay. The spa is super. The food especially the breakfast is delicious. Some renovation is required so a little disruption but all for the best. We loved the walks around the grounds also.

This place is amazing. I took my princess to this breathtaking hotel for 4 days and was not disappointed. We were treated like royalty and they have the best afternoon tea that we have experienced, including England. A must do once in a lifetime. Living in a Castle.

I was in the hotel with my girlfriend, the hotel is good, however they damaged the rented car I was in and left me with a loss of EUR 283.20. I made a complaint to Sir Simon Hodgson (manager) who simply told me that the damage was not in the hotel. But I only rented the car to go there,...

We had a fantastic stay at the Dromoland Castle Hotel - by far the highlight of our trip. We only wished we'd planned for more time there to have the chance to appreciate everything it has to offer. We observed people practicing their archery, and another small group out with a falconer, and that was just during our quick overnight...
