Very pleased with our first residential visit to Dromoland Castle. Dromoland lived up to it's 5star reputation and our expectations. From arrival to departure we were made feel special and welcome. Staff throughout the Castle were helpful, friendly and courteous at all times. We would hope to make a return visit and would readily and confidently recommend Dromoland Castle to... More

When we left Dromoland Castle, we found out that the breakfast wasn't included, however if we would have booked through Dromoland website we could have pay less for the same room with breakfast included. The receptionist was very unfriendly since we arrived there she never let us... More

We went there in 2010 and had a great time the rooms and service were great. The details were more than we expected. I went golfing and a couple of deer crossed the fairway as I was approaching the green.

On asking for a decaffeinated cappuccino made with soya milk, they were unable to provide this. I found that very difficult to believe as this is a 5 star hotel!!! There are many guests who have various diet requirements these days. This requirement however is not unusual!

Home after a fabulous weekend in Dromoland Castle! We travelled from Dublin using public transport and it couldn't have been easier. We used the Dublin Coach bus company and got the bus from D'Olier Street to Ennis, and from here got an approx. 10-15min taxi up to the Castle. Our first impressions of Dromoland were 'Pure Luxury'! The property is... More

Damian at the falconry school was very knowledgeable and the owls and falcons are beautiful, you get a very close encounter. Worth every penny. The hotel staff is very nice and the castle is lovely. Food was excellent as well. Highly recommend this as a destination. We will be making a trip back!

Just before Christmas 2013 we had a very enjoyable family short stay at Dromoland so when we put it to our daughters and granddaughters to choose their preference for a similar treat before Christmas 2014 the unanimous selection was once again Dromoland Castle. From dealing with Blaithin in Reservations to the ever cheerful and professional Tony in the dining room... More
