Dining like royalty

While staying at the castle, we enjoyed tea (delicious, such good scones), two dinners in the main dining room (both wonderful, they even cooked the trout we caught that morning), and nice buffet breakfast spread.

Great dinner and breakfast! We had dinner in the Gallery, and it was very good and the service was excellent. The steak and the steak sandwiches as well as fish & chips were very well enjoyed at our table. We had breakfast in the main dining room, and it was excellent! There is a buffet for fruit, cheese, meat, etc.... More

I've been to Dromoland on quite a few occasions for Afternoon Tea, and it is these experiences that I'm basing this review upon. I have never been to Dromoland for Afternoon Tea and been wowed. The reason for this has primarily been the lack of service and the reluctance to replenish food and tea. The room that we've always had... More

The meal was very fancy and elegant. They served them with the silver lids over the meal so that you could enjoy the "ta-da" factor of seeing your meal for the first time. The food was very well presented and tasted wonderful. The desserts were so pretty it was hard to dig in and eat them. They gave us many... More

We went to Dromoland for drinks at night and listened to some wonderful guitar music. The bartender was very attentive and we had a great time.

Had breakfast and dinner in the dining room, lunch in the parlor, and drinks at the 'round bar' at Dromoland in the course of a two-day stay. Without exception, all the meals were great! Our reservations were honored, and we were seated on arrival, even when some members of our party were a bit late. The settings were very elegant... More

My wife and I agree that we've probably never had better service. The restaurant manager seated us and introduced us to the young lady that was going to wait on us and later checked back several times. We got tremendous help selecting a wine with no attempt to up-sell us - ended up with a great white wine from South... More

My husband & I went to Dromoland Castle on our honeymoon, in 1986. It was the most elegant meal of our trip, and we never forgot it. Last year we returned with our two grown daughters, and the experience was the same. Fine dining in a stately setting, beautifully plated and served by attentive wait staff. A memorable experience.

Nice varied menu with light fare and entrees, lovely outdoor eating area. Great service. Be sure to look for it at the golf clubhouse not the Castle. Do not follow Google directions as they send you through Newcastle on Ferguson. Take exit 11 on the n18.

we were not prepared to dress for dinner. We ate in the more casual restaurant and loved the experience of sitting in overstuffed chairs and a couch to enjoy our meal.
