We, 2 adults and a 6 year old, spent a great St Patricks weekend 2014 in the Inn at Dromoland and I have been meaning to submit this review for months! The room was bright and spacious, newly refurbished, and had fresh fruit on arrival. Our 6 year old son loved the pool which was warm and just the right... More

This is a nice hotel but it is not properly maintained and it is overpriced in many respects. The bathroom could do with a facelift. Not that it matters to me much that it looks last century, however things should be working properly. The fact is that the tap on the washing basin gets stuck and there is no way... More

To be fair - This review is only based on a very limited view of the Inn at Dromoland. I recently stayed here as I was a guest at a wedding in Dromoland Castle. It is a short distance (by car) from the Castle itself and I've been told that you can cross a path via the golf course to... More

Seeing as we live nearby, we decided to take a trip to Shannigan's this evening for dinner. I'm a big fan of the emergent craft beer movement in Ireland, so this was my main draw. My partner had been here before the refurbishments, and she noted a marked improvement in decor and ambience. We ordered a sharing platter of seafood,... More

This hotel was previously known as The Clare Inn. My wife and I spent one of our anniversaries there (we are now in our 55th year of married life - and still on our honeymoon). This hotel is now under new management. We attended a Caring for Carers function on Saturday 20th September - there were over 100 guests in... More

If I am to be honest about this place, I have to say we were disenchanted. By viewing the website, we thought it was going to be much more than it actually was. This place in no way has any clear connection to the Dromoland Castle property than it's name and location. It's actually a motel experience. The staff is... More
