It was a relaxing room and just up the stairs to the dining area and bar. Service is over the top from...

This is a must do while you are in Ireland. The Castle and the grounds are beautiful. We really enjoyed our carriage ride with Sean. He was very informative of Irish and Castle history. The food was very good as well.

Dromoland is truly a magical place. We stayed there the last night of our trip and wish we could have stayed longer. Staff are extremely helpful and attentive. The rooms were delightfully comfortable and well appointed. The castle and grounds are gorgeous and something to be experienced. I would highly recommend Dromoland if you have the opportunity.

Our stay at the Dromoland Castle was supposed to be one of the highlights of our trip to Ireland. It was really nice, but I was disappointed.
