We were very impressed with the attentiveness from every employee at the castle. We truly received a royal treatment. John Connor the bell Captain greeted us with the friendliest welcome Imaginable. Veerpal the manager on duty went above and beyond any service we have ever received at the finest hotels anywhere in the world.

This was our first time traveling to Ireland, and we completely loved staying at Dromoland Castle. It met all our expectations! We went fishing with Denis (wonderful person), had a very relaxing massage/ facial at the spa, and ate dinner at the Earl of Thomond restaurant. Excellent, excellent stay. Can't recommend it enough.

The castle is beautiful in an amazing setting, so conveniently located within minutes of Shannon airport. Our room was divine, overlooking the golf course. Food was fabulous. Lovely dinners and casual or complete breakfast--we did both--were yummy. Don't miss doing the falconing. I never would have believed it but it was amazing and so much fun!

.Beautiful hotel resort in fantastic surroundings. We only stayed for one night and arrived late in the afternoon as we were attending a family wedding elsewhere. We did make use of the boating facilities and hired bikes to do a circuit of the lake and golf course, which we all really enjoyed. Our stay worked out pretty expensive but was... More

This oppulent castle hotel is a national gem and provides a full range of facilities and activities at the highest level. Assoon as I drove through the gates I knew I was in for a treat and I wasn't disappointed. The staff are friendly, efficient and dedicated to ensuring a pleasant stay. The only small negatives are the Red Bordeaux... More

This place is nice. Its super elegant without being pretentious. I wasn't fond of our room I think it was the honeymoon suite. It was up a few flights of narrow stairs. By the time we got up there we were miserable. The room itself was wonderful, but if you happen to get put in this room pay for an... More

Dromoland Castle is an exquisite hotel! It is truly the most beautiful hotel I have ever been in, and it is the epitome of a 5 star Irish hotel. Not only is it beautiful, but the food is excellent, and the staff is very welcoming. I even took down the names of the staff because their positive attitude and lovely... More

Stayed at Dromoland the last couple of nights of our Ireland vacation. We had a very spacious suite. The grounds and the hotel was beautiful. Food at the restaurants (golf club and the casual dining at the castle) was excellent. As we are vegetarian, the restaurants were accommodating and took special requests from us. The golf course too is nice... More

Wonderful and unique experience for our 50th Wedding Anniversary. We were blown away by the beauty of the area; loved the walking paths, drinks in front of a beautiful wood burning fireplace, the walled gardens, the gorgeous dining room and room with a huge bathroom. Our only regret is that we did not book another day or two here. Missed... More

Stopped at Dromoland 15 years ago and had a wonderful time. It has only gotten better. You can find activities on site to keep you busy. We enjoyed the hawk walk, lake and spa. Definitely worth a stop when you are in Ireland!
