We had a fantastic time staying at the Dromoland Castle. The carriage ride is a must do. Sean is very knowledgeable and full of all kind of history and stories, plus it is a great way to see the property. We also had a fun time clay shooting. I had never done anything like this before and it was not...

This is an absolutely beautiful luxury hotel. We booked two rooms, a Queen Anne and a deluxe. The deluxe was much larger and brighter, with a larger bath and I felt it was worth the price difference. But the Queen Anne room was still lovely. The highlight of our stay was the falconry experience. My 21 year old son is...

If you want an amazing experience you must stay here. The hotel is beautiful, service is second to none and the grounds are amazing. If you can also take advantage of the experiences. We did clay shooting and the hawk walk and both were incredible! Something we won't forget.

One of the most luxurious and amazing places I've stayed- has the feel of staying in someone's private castle, but is quite large- so much to see and explore and the sites are just stunning. My fiancé enjoyed the fishing while I really loved sitting by the fire with a cup of tea. The food was outstanding and room service...

This is the definition of a luxury hotel - outstanding service, amazing food, amenities. I cannot wait to come back. What made the trip (aside from the obvious stunning hotel and property) was the incredible service from everyone. From the minute you check in to any asks on the phone, you feel like you're in the most exclusive B&B. Kudos...
