We had an amazing stay at the Dromoland Castle Hotel. We spent two nights and nothing was amiss. The service was outstanding - special kudos to Mairead for service above and beyond - and the reception, bar, wait staff, and bellmen were all friendly, professional and went out of their way to make the experience personal. The room was beautiful...

I stayed here one night, with dinner and breakfast included as the last day of an 8 day Ireland tour. It was very relaxing and staff very attentive. We were all exhausted after our week of sightseeing, and this 5 star resort was perfect for decompressing and getting ready to return home. The dinner was amazing- different presentation and tastes...

One of the highlights of our trip was to stay at Dromoland castle. We loved the walking trails, rowing on the lake and the falcon experience. Dinner was delicious. Our room was luxurious. I hope that we will be able to return.

We stayed one night in early May and thoroughly enjoyed it! The castle and grounds are amazing, loved walking around after breakfast- wish we had time for a round of golf. The room was spacious and clean, decorated in romantic floral patterns, the bath tub was deep enough for a long hot soak, the shower was powerful......All my favorite things!...

This facility was top notch. I have always wanted to stay in a real castle and this was the one. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Our room was very spacious and luxurious. The grounds were beautiful. Dinner was a little pricey but well worth it. We did the 5 course dinner it was superb to say the least....

We stayed at Dromoland Castle for a wedding in May 2016. The castle was absolutely beautiful; however, our room was a bit outdated compared to others in our group. While it was still comfortable and nicely decorated, we had plumbing issues with the toilet not flushing properly and the sink not draining. It sounds like they are in the process...
