With lavish décor, indulgent dining, fabulous views and magnificent bedrooms, this is a place to feel at home. Behind our warm Irish welcome is the belief that every guest is royalty. Stroll the 450-acre estate. Tee off on our world class golf course. Take afternoon tea by a roaring fire. Relax in our intimate spa. Enjoy delicious cuisine. No matter what your preference, at Dromoland Castle there’s no escaping the sense that you are walking in the shadows of kings.

The fig tree restaurant at the golf club has great menu and good choice of wines. Very friendly staff. We also had afternoon tea for my daughters Birthday in the castle. Highly recommended. Will come back again in the new year.

Hi Michael and anyone else who recently stayed at Dromoland Castle Hotel. Would you be able to provide a photo of the Queen Anne Rooms, the classic and the courtyard? Also, are these rooms in a separate building? The way I am reading different reviews and descriptions, it seems like the actual castle is not where we would sleep. If you have photos of the King bed and or the Two beds I would love to see them. We are going in March 2019 and I want to be sure I have reserved the room that will best fit our stay. I would have time to change the room to another category if the Queen Anne Classic is not what I am hoping for. Thank you!
Dear Kelly H Thank you for booking your upcoming visit to Dromoland Castle, we all look forward to welcoming you. If you visit our website, click on the 'menu' button and select 'accommodation' you can see pictures of the different room categories. Or if you prefer please email any queries you have to my colleagues (email address can be found on our website also as Trip Advisor do not allow me send it on this message) who will be more than happy to help you choose your room category and send you on images directly. Sincerely Mark Nolan, General Manager

Where are the Deluxe rooms located on the property? Are they within the original building?
Yes they are in the original building. All the room are connected though, so it is not a big deal to be in other wings of the hotel. This is a fantastic place. I hope you are able to stay there and enjoy it.

Hi, a recent review suggests the pool will be renovated soon. Will the pool be available on May 30-31? I've emailed the hotel twice directly with no response. Thanks!
Hi Chris & Jeff I am so sorry your email went unanswered, I will certainly look into that. I am delighted to advise that the swimming pool is back open now for guest use. We look forward to welcoming you soon. Sincerely, Mark Nolan

"book early"
"I can't imaging there's a bad room in the place :)"
"I would avoid any rooms across the courtyard in the new extension, they are pretty drab and away from the main communal areas."
"Get the executive deluxe room."
"Rooms off-lobby are closer to restaurants."
