From the service at the front desk, to the housekeeping staff, everyone was fantastic. Food was lovely for dinner and breakfast. Looking forward to coming again. Loved the Nespresso machine in the room!

Overall the Castle was fantastic, food was very good within. The sister property, the Inn at Dromoland badly needs exterior refreshing. The poor state of the exterior and adjoining buildings turned us off going in to it or the Pub. The pool facilities here were ok.

Dromoland castle is like heaven on earth. From the moment you see it as you drive you the long avenue, you realise that you have entered a different world. The service, accommodation, food and facilities are unrivalled. No request is too big or too small and is carried out immediately and seamlessly. I would definitely recommend it. I cannot wait...

The staff was exceptional! The concierge and front desk staff were some of the best I have ever! The breakfast was amazing and the cocktail bar had a very nice and warming atmosphere. If you want the best service ever, this is the place to go!

It was April, so the weather was still cold and spring was just starting. Nonetheless, it was clear and sunny, and we had a fabulous time. We spent the late afternoon wandering the...

Can't say enough wonderful things about this property. Everything was wonderful. The room was amazing, as was the service. The food was breathtaking. Splurge in the restaurant and bar. It can get pricey, but it is well worth it. We recommended to a friend, and they had a similarly spectacular experience.
