The Inn at Dromoland must be under renovations because there was construction going on. Some carpet definitely needs to be replaced. Rooms were alright, staff was friendly. I would suggest golfing at Dromoland - fantastic, beautiful course. Fish and chips and beer were also good.

Have stayed twice with our grandchildren in the last six months and have been very pleased with all aspects of our visit. The staff in all areas are excellent. The rooms are very pleasant and absolutely spotless, as is the whole hotel. The family room is such a bonus with a fridge, microwave and toaster. There's also a washer/dryer in... More

A group of adults and children had lunch in the very busy bar. At first could not accommodate all together but when a number of tables together became available no problem to staff to change us. Food was lovely and a great choice from lunch menu or a la carte. Staff were very attentive and were very helpful with children.... More

This hotel was nicely decorated and quite easily found. Right off the main road so it was located between Shannon and Galway. The staff was great and went over and above any request you made. Having 5 children staying with me proved the staff's excellence.

Visited with family for Mother's day. Ate in the bar as we did not want to go to the restaurant. Menu was excellent. We had salmon, burgers and kids meals. All were very good. I often judge a place by its kids menu. Honestly this is as good as any of the competition. Staff had no issues with us settling... More

We stayed here on 2/12,13/2015 & were so delighted ! The room was the cleanest we had in 5 Irish hotels; it was spotlessly clean. The room was lovely; it was one of the redecorated rooms; as an interior decorator, I can attest to the quality of the renovation. Fashion meets form and the result is exceptional! The breakfast was... More
