This was such an amazing place! The rooms were clean, the rooms were spacious enough for 2 adults and 2 kids (17 & 9). The staff was incredible. I shipped clothing for a wedding for all 4 of us from the US to Ireland to the Inn and they had it there waiting for me when we checked in.

This hotel is a fantastic family friendly place to visit. We have been there 4 times this year and we are already planning our next stay. Children's services and entertainment is great and the staff are very friendly. Family rooms are big and spacious, comfortable and very clean. The bar food is gorgeous and brilliant value for money.

On our last day in Ireland (on vacation from the USA) our rental car broke down. Thank goodness we were able to nurse it off the highway and very slowly get back to the hotel (its top speed was 12 kph as we pulled in the hotel parking lot). That's when the Inn's General Manager, Nico Hernandez, really went above... More

As a pub/restaurant it's quite good. Some nice craft ales and good grub. As a hotel it's dreadful. No lift service to some floors so you lug your cases up by yourself. No water in the rooms. Room was very hot and we got a great view out over the rooftop with the kitchen vent as our best mate!!! Thankfully... More

The Inn is a nice alternative to the expense of staying at Dromoland Castle; however, you get what you pay for. Definitely a party crowd and a fun pub. Our bathroom smelled strongly of body odor. Wifi works best in room located closer to the lobby.

Staff were great! Moved rooms after a night as a larger room was made available. Stayed for 5 nights and really enjoyed it. Kids club was great and loads in indoor and outdoor activities. Very near to bun ratty and Ennis town. Food was good and all staff were very accommodating!

We stayed in the Inn at Drumolland for 2 nights with our 3 young children. The staff were lovely. It is a very very child friendly hotel, there is loads to keep the children entertained from morning until bedtime. The food is superb, the waiting staff are very nice also. The 'play inn' is brilliant for the children to keep... More

Was a guest at a family wedding on Saturday 8th August 2015 & I honestly could not fault any aspect of the service provided by everyone at the Hotel. The lovely large reception area was super for relaxing after the ceremony & before the meal. The meal itself was superb, with great attention to detail. All the waiting staff were... More
