We stayed here the night before we flew home from Shannon. The room was ok. The bathroom definitely needed work (some signs of mold, poor ventilation, hard to keep the door open, hard to get in and out of the tub, small in size overall). The carpets were new, which is great, but the room had a strong burnt rubber... More

First and foremost staff were really good, friendly, helpful and noticably above average. Hotel was comfortable and although it has undergone some recent upgrades, I hope it eventually goes a little further with some modernisation in the rooms. Rooms were clean, beds comfortable, etc. Front of house, bar, pool, gym - all good. Standard rooms better than family rooms. Average... More

Hotel was immaculate all public areas and the rooms also kept to a very high quality, only recommendation would be to provide larger towels. Food all fresh and beautifully cooked. Location 2Hrs 19 min from Dublin - on Dromoland Castle Golf Course - lovely walks and beautiful views. Looking forward to our next visit sooner rather than later.

We stayed here for 2 nights. It was beautifully situated and front desk staff welcoming and accommodating. The room was clean and well appointed. We ate breakfast each morning in the dining room and were delighted by our waiter, who's humor brightened our jet lagged foggy minds. He went out of his way to answer our gardening questions, even asking... More

I recently stayed in at the Inn at Dromoland for a work conference. The Inn is situated in a beautiful remote setting with Dromoland Castle at its back. The Inn is going through renovations at the moment, that in some parts of the hotel are well needed and hopefully will give life back to the Inn. However, the staff, the... More

We stayed one night at the Inn at Dromoland because of its proximity to Shannon Airport. It is a relatively low-cost hotel and the room was clean but basic. The staff was very welcoming. We enjoyed dinner at the restaurant on site, where the food and the waiters were very good. The biggest surprise was the delightful breakfast: well-stocked buffet... More
