Our first experience with Irish Accomodations. Loved the beds! There was one queen and two twin beds so a large room for two of us. Food was exceptional in the hotel. Loved the grapefruit and soda bread! Great customer service.

The entrance and pub at the hotel are very nice to relax and have a complimentary glass of tea. The first room we went to was extremely warm as the radiator was left on and so we had to ask for another room. After the third call to the front desk they sent someone and we moved to a much... More

The staff is fantastic!!!!!!!! I can't give enough exclamations!!!! The rooms are ok and the food at the restaurant is decent also. If service is important to you- definitely stay here. The clientele seemed in their later years. Also, there is not much entertainment other than the bar.

Room was nice. But walls are to thin you can hear noise from other rooms. The pub needs some improvement in their service department. But I would stay here again. Staff was very nice and some what helpful.

We were 5 nights at this property while attending wedding celebrations in nearby towns and the reception at the Dromoland Castle. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. It is a surprisingly large property that has several buildings and levels. The property has a great pub with an excellent menu with live entertainment most evenings, as well as an lovely... More

We recently attended an event at Dromoland Castle. The Castle was booked out and we sought accommodation nearby. The Inn at Dromoland suggests that it is an Inn at Dromoland but really the offering could not be further away from what I had imagined and it is such a contrast to the Dromoland experience that any association is an insult...

The location is good, the decor and general ambiance also very good and staff were excellent. However what was really disappointing was the food itself. There were three of us in my group and we are local to county clare and believe in supporting local business and decided to go out for dinner for Fathers Day. But we left feeling... More

This is a great place! The staff are excellent, attentive and responsive. The rooms are large and well-equipped with a gleaming bathroom. The bar comes alive at night with live music and space to dance - which we did! Breakfast, although part self-serve, part service, was tasty and hot. Full marks, will visit again if in this part of Ireland.... More
