I recently had the pleaser of visiting this property on two occasions once for a wedding and secondly for a stay with my family. I have previously stayed here when it was the Clare Inn but how things have changed for the better. On both occasions at the wedding and on vacation I was pleasantly surprised. Our rooms were newly... More

While searching for this hotel, we accidentally went to Dromoland Castle, kind of snotty reception girl, gave us directions back here. Walked in and had the best reception! So glad we ended up here. Although they are owned by the same people as Dromoland, apparently they haven't decided to update it enough. This place is definitely their money maker and... More

We enjoyed 5 nights. No complaints at all. The hotel is perfect for family breaks. We would definitely book again . Our 8 year old loved the kids activities and the acorn club while our 11 year old made plenty of use of the pool. The bar was excellent for food and the inclusive meals in our deal were of... More

Good food and helpful staff. I had to ask for help to connect to the wireless network, but the receptionist was happy to help. I think they could make it easier to connect as I was not the only one having difficulty. otherwise our stay was most enjoyable. I am happy to recommend this hotel.

I am writing on behalf of my future inlaws who recently stayed at the Inn in advance of our December 2015 stay. It was their first time at the property and they were so pleased with the hotel. They keep raving about the food, the dinner package they received at Shenanigans was amazing. The best part of this hotel is... More

The room was grubby under the beds were not cleaned. There was dirty cotton buds and dirty tissues under the bed. The shower curtain was also grubby and we had to throw out the toilet roll when we came. On the bright side the food was good and the staff in both the dining room and the restaurant were both...

I stayed at this hotel with 2 friends for a girls weekend away. We booked 2 nights with b&b and spa treatments at Dromoland Castle. We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend. The food was excellent, both in the bar and the restaurant. The room was nice and clean, our only issue was that we had booked for 3 guests but the... More

The staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was excellent. The room itself was a little dated but it was fine. We used it as a base to get to the touristy spots like The Burren, Ailwee caves, Doolin etc. Overall a very pleasant stay. Would highly recommend it for a family stay.
