I believe this was the highlight of our tour of Ireland and a beautiful way to end it. From the moment our group arrived we knew the place was first class. The staff was waiting for us on the step to greet us. Brief talk on all emenities and rousing welcome. The care taken to preserve the air of a... More

What can you say, my kids loved staying here (we all did). We were treated like royalty when we arrived. Though we have stayed in other places where they treated you so nice, never with kids. My kids were so impressed. The place is beautiful inside and out. I loved our room and the size of it. I just wish... More

Great experience staying at the Dromoland castle hotel. Not sure but I believe we were upgraded. In any case, room was beautiful. Service was outstanding. Had dinner and breakfast at the castle and both were excellent. We toured before driving to the hotel, wished we would have gotten to the hotel earlier to appreciate the grounds and the golf course.

I was so excited to stay at Dromoland and left there very disappointed. It reminded me somewhat of a casino. They treat you great coming in and then after that, you're on your own. The woman at the front desk while walking us to our room said she would make our dinner reservations. Never happened. Thankfully, we only had to... More

Great place. Grand staff. Beautiful grounds. And if you like golf "Number two rated foreign course" by Condo ness magazine. Close to the old town of Ennis with cute little streets and lot of pubs. They have bike for riding around the property, and you can rent horses, but that is not on the grounds.The food is excellent. You can... More

Family trip thru Ireland and was looking for a memorable castle experience. Dromoland fit the bill to a tee. Outstanding facility, excellent staff, wonderful afternoon tea, delicious dinners, many activities to choose from. Booked thru Amex Platinum, all three rooms upgraded (one to a suite), beautifully appointed rooms, great bathrooms, outstanding views of lake and 18th hole. Loved so much... More

Five of us came and stayed in April. The rooms were wonderful but the service turned out to be the highlight of the trip.

I’m really torn in how to rate our stay at Dromoland. On the one hand we received amazing service, experienced some great food and tried some fun and entertaining local activities; on the other hand the room we were given was awful. But as we decided during the trip that we were on vacation and should focus on the positive.... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night while we were traveling the west coast, based on recommendations from two separate friends that were married here. It was our favorite hotel and experience of our entire trip. We were upgraded to the top room in the tower which was simply stunning. The room was huge and the bathroom was... More
