I stayed at this property in September 2014 and loved it. We had a family room and it was large and we did not feel cramped. The inn is beautiful and well maintained. There was a lot of seating in the Reception area and the front desk people were great. They made me feel welcome and were very helpful. The... More

A group of us stayed here recently, and while I'd heard many adds on the radio about the refurbishment that has taken place I was disappointed to see that this is only parts of the hotel that had been done. (This was old "The Clare Inn".) Anyway, The Food is good here and no shortage of it. The staff are... More

This is a brilliant place for all the family with endless things to do in the hotel itself a the surrounding county. I stayed here for 3nts BB & 1D with my children 10,7&5 and from start to finish we loved it. The entertainment was great for children and the grounds around the hotel a stunning.

We were part of a CIE tour finishing up our 10th and last night. First off, he had just come off a fabulous 2 night stay at Kilronan Castle.

Overall I found the Inn to be a pleasant stay. It was part of a package stay that we bought through Great Value Vacations and I have to say for the price it was perfect. It was tucked away, but was still within a drivable distance to some "must see" Irish destinations. Positives: -The staff at the front desk were... More

Recently visited Ennis but was unable to find a hotel room in the town. The local tourist office was very helpful and got us booked into this hotel just about 10 minute drive south. We got the last room so the view wasn't great but the room was reasonably spacious and we could have no complaints. It was very clean... More

Stayed at Inn at Dromoland while playing golf at Dromoland castle. While we had a great time, and were treated like royality i was very surprised at the cost of our weekend ......it just seemed too cheap for what we received. hotel is well worn, but clean and cheerful. The staff were fab, even at 3am. Well worth a visit
