Food was very average and well below what you would expect restaurant standard to be. We ordered wine, had to sign for it, the wine came in a ice bucket already opened while the waitor stood there requesting payment there and then, dispite waiting for it after the meal had been served. We requested and thankfully kept the receipt as... More

My husband and I spent two nights here and I wish it had been longer. The staff are great. Very professional and so friendly and helpful at all times. The food is excellent as well. The breakfasts were a great bargain and delicious. Shannigan's Gastro Pub serves up a wonderful meal and the atmosphere is elegant without being stuffy. We... More

We stayed for 3 nights at the Inn while attending a wedding in the castle nearby. The bar was a superb place to catch up with friends and the food was excellent. Service from all at reception, plus bartenders & waiting staff was brilliant. We had a refurbished room with a flat screen TV, which was next to the main... More

My wife and I stayed for two nights while attending a wedding in the Castle. Great location. The initial room we were offered was probably one of the less used rooms and had a slightly musty smell and just a bit dated looking. I asked if we could be accomodated elsewhere within the hotel and the member of staff who... More

Dromoland Castle is a beautiful place to have a wedding but unless you are part of the wedding family, it is also an expensive overnight stay. However, the Castle now owns the nearby (one mile max) Inn at Dromoland and this offers an excellent convenient and alternative hotel to bed down for the night. And additionally, there is now an...

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
