The pictures on Trip Advisor do not do this property justice. It is a really breathtaking property. The grounds are lovely. The castle is fabulous. The service was impeccable. There are so many activities on the property, I highly recommend staying for at least 2-3 nights (if not more). There is golf, hawking, skeet shooting, swimming, fishing, boating, horseback riding,... More

Gorgeous grounds, well appointed rooms, friendly and helpful staff. Will highly recommend this property and will return if we have the opportunity to travel back to Ireland. We stayed outast 2 nights of our trip here and it was a perfect way to close out our vacation.

Overall we enjoyed our stay, bedroom decor very tired looking, and overly attentive staff at dinner. We stayed in room 312 which had a lovely view over the lake, but the room itself needs a good freshen up.

Really enjoyed our visit. The service was wonderful. The hotel is a tiny, little bit shabby but that is only if you compare to shiny new castles. Had yummy dinner and mentioned to the waitress that I would love a table by the window at breakfast. I woke up the next morning late and went down and we were seated... More

Old castle and all modern amenities. Lot of different items on the menu that you don't see everyday. For breakfast go with the buffet as the omelette was two bites. Lot of activities for the sports enthusiast.

Very nice hotel with beautiful grounds and fun things to do. Our skeet shooting, archery instructor was top notch. The food and service were very good. The castle was really lovely and they had the best brown bread in all of ireland!

We scheduled in a stay at Dromoland while we were travelling through Ireland as a surprise birthday treat for our 23 year old daughter. From the moment we arrived everything was perfect. As there was 3 of us in one room they upgraded us to a stateroom in the main building which was stunning. We had 2 large bay windows... More

This was the third castle on our tour of four. It was, by far, the most outstanding, gorgeous, luxurious and indulgent. From the big broad smile of Grace at the desk, to the wonderful restaurant and bar service, to the entertaining and brilliant tour guide Sean and his sidekick, Paddy (horse) this was the most brilliant and wonderful place I've...

This is the most authentic & amazing property we have ever stayed in. The brochure & online information does not fully prepare you for the experience. The facilities and staff were efficient and totally friendly; really appreciated their guests. This was 1st class all the way!
