My spouse and I stayed for three nights in February 2013. From the beginning we were put right at ease. The porter and the front of desk staff were welcoming and engaging. The room was stunning and the Coctail Bar had a wonderful 'old world charm' about it. The venue is beautiful and the decor is sympathetic to it's heritage.... More

We went for Valentines weekend and were not disappointed. Check in was easy and we were shown to our room by a friendly porter. The reception area is very plush with suits of armour and majestic ceilings. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The gym is basic and is detached from the main hotel area. It is part of the...

We stayed with family over the Valentines weekend. Its a lovely hotel. Rooms were spacious - top class. The maid service was best I'd ever seen - 10 out of 10. Venue is beautiful. Grounds are historic and pictueresque. Staff service was excellent. Only problem is that at times there weren't enough staff for a 5* hotel. I seemed to... More

We spent a night in dromoland in February and were very impressed with it overall. Booking was easy with helpful and friendly reception staff. First impressions were that maybe of a slightly dated hotel room interior... and possibly aimed at the US tourist, rather than irish. (Kitshy irish sayings printed on napkins etc). We used the hot tub, the spa,... More

I first went here in 1997 with my then boyrfriend, then partner, then fiancee and the husband. It is such a special place for us..... from the moment you drive through the pillared entrance you are at peace and oblivious of the outside world. You then drive through and past the golf course, and then your first sight of the... More

Our 2 night stay at Dromoland was perfection. Checkin was friendly and efficient. The lobby is lovely with comfortable couches. The doorman helped bring our bags to our room and he also offered to park our car. That was when we knew Dromoland was special. Every member of staff we encountered was polite, friendly, helpful and welcoming. Our room was... More

From the faded furnishings in the lobby and the forced smiles of the porters it was apparent that the golden years of this grand castle have passed. Room cleanliness left a lot to be desired with dust and cobwebs in plain sight and the complimentary bathroom items poor - for a five star hotel. This is our fifth visit, and... More

My partner and I were there for two nights over New Year's. It was quite expensive, but then country houses in Ireland are quite expensive in general but certainly it was well worth celebrating NY eve over here. The NY gala was brilliantly done - they had pipers, impressive fireworks, bubblies all around, dinner with live band and DJ -... More

I wish i could give this property a sparkling review. But unfortunately the exorbitant price of the food/drink is the reason why I cannot. Although I have stayed in 4 & 5 * hotels on numerous occasions, this is the first time i felt value for money was not at all present. Granted, the hotel aesthetically is amazing and the... More
