Amazing grounds, helpful staff, great room, cozy and luxurious. Best service by wait staff in the Fig Restaurant on the grounds. My husband did the Falconry school tour and it was very cool. The minute you arrive you are treated like royalty!! We loved it. Wished we could have stayed longer!

The service in the main restaurant was a little slow but... More

Booked Dromoland Castle recently for short stay and have to say, what a wonderful setting. Staff are very helpful and attentive, food is very expensive but the quality is top class. Some great rooms to wander in and out of in the castle and the dining room looks fantastic. Breakfast is served in the formal dining room each morning and... More

This is a wonderful hotel and it is wonderful because of the calibre of its staff. Yes, it has a wonderful location and a fine building but these would be of little import without the outstanding service. The staff are constantly attentive and never intrusive. They look happy to be doing their jobs! They listen attentively -a rare quality. Every... More

This is a great place to spend a few nights. The grounds and the service were wonderful and they made you feel at home. We did the Falconry experience with Dave and it was something to remember. Great!

We had never stayed in a castle and thought no trip to Ireland would be complete without a try. Based upon the price and reviews we thought the accommodations were going to be exceptions but that wasn't the case. Our room was small and very crowded with big furniture. The bed was comfortable but there was no a/c and very... More

We just returned to Dromoland after 26 years and 2 grown kids. They have renovated the Castle and built on to it but it is what a castle stay should be! Be sure to dine in the formal dinning room - business casual is fine - no tie required...but the food is outstanding - have the Veal! The grounds are... More

Dromoland Castle is a treat if you can afford to splurge and stay a night you should! The grounds are beautiful, the service is top notch and the food is exceptional. It is a relaxing and magical place with stuff to do there. Our room was spacious, beautiful and the beds are very comfortable. Didn't golf but used the indoor... More
