I stayed here for a family wedding on June, 27. The stay was absolutely fantastic!! The staff right across the hotel were amazing. The check-in and check-out were seamless because of the extremely competent staff. Our bags were brought to our rooms by the most helpful of porters. The accommodation was out of this world, everything we could have wanted... More

Dromoland Castle was amazing. Lot's of stuff to do on property. A couple of things that brought the experience down a little. One, the rooms don't have any AC. Not a problem during the night if you open the windows it is very cool. They have 1 small cheap fan in the room. Not very nice for a 5 star... More

Dear Thomasja37 Thank you for your feedback, you seem to have enjoyed your stay for the most part. As highlighted in some previous reviews, we are experiencing some uncharacteristic weather conditions at the moment and because we are not a purpose built hotel we do not have air-conditioning throughout the hotel, I sincerely apologize that the fan you were given...

Want to be treated like royalty? Consider Dromoland. It's beautiful and I've never seen more attentive service. Personally, I would prefer an air conditioned room but that's the only downside that I can list. We will be happy to return.

Dear Ricky S Thank you for your feedback and for choosing to stay with us. We do have a small number of airconditioned rooms available but unfortunately because we are not a purpose built hotel it is not feasible to have airconditioning throughout due to conservation restrictions. We also do not usually experience these humid weather conditions too often in... More

Firstly I must say that the staff here were amazing. From the front desk to the lounge, the bell men were super nice, top notch. We stayed two nights here and it was very special. No keep in mind that this is an old castle so the room are a little older yes, but the bathroom are very modern and... More

This was an amazing hotel. I came here with my parents and I loved the Dromoland Castle. The location was breathtakingly beautiful and it was very relaxing and peaceful staying there. You can really let yourself go there and relax. The interior of the castle was amazing, it really felt like we were living in the 19th century. It looked... More

We loved the Dromoland castle. The setting was beautiful - within a huge former estate. The interior of the castle was really unique. The decor was of an 1850's manor. The facilities were splendid. They have great areas to walk and have every activity from golf and a spa to working with hawks (raptors). The restaurant was good in the... More

The grounds of this place are an absolute delight! And it goes downhill from there. Our room was a good size, but was so stuffy, it was difficult to breath. It was cool both outside & in the hallways, so it wasn't as if there was a heat wave. When we called about it, they brought us a small fan.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
With an extraordinary history stretching back to the 5th Century, the Dromoland Castle 5 Star Hotel in Ireland was originally the ancestral home of one of the few families of Gaelic Royalty; direct descendants of Brian Boru, the High King of Ireland. Approached by a meandering drive that passes acres of magnificent lawns, this Irish 5 star luxury Castle Hotel overlooks its own Championship Golf Course and a glistening lake which commands the panoramic beauty of the surrounds. ... more   less
