Absolutely unforgettable experience and facility. However, there are certain quirks: rooms have no air conditioning and no coffee/tee makers, windows are difficult to open, and the needed standing room fan is noisy. Guests are charged extra for virtually everything - even lockers. Fitness center closes at 7. One elderly couple in our group booked one year in advance but was... More

We loved our 2 night stay here. The grounds are beautiful with trails to walk. The Castle itself was gorgeous. We had a beautiful room overlooking the grounds. We were on the 3rd floor. There is no elevator (at least we never saw one), so keep this in mind. The room decor was regal and the bathroom had a stand... More

Surpassed our expectations. Looking forward to returning with family. We were all treated and felt like royalty. Not one detail was overlooked. "Tour" of hotel and being accompanied to our room upon arrival was particularly helpful.

We recently ended our 7 night visit to Ireland with a stay at Dromoland Castle Hotel. The grounds and hotel were beautiful. The staff was welcoming and very attentive. We had a newly refurbished room (108) and I have never stayed in a nicer room. The bed was very large and comfortable as were the pillows. The bathroom was huge... More

Fab place to stay, set in lovely grounds!!! Staff were friendly, very polite and informative. The walled Garden was a lovely place to get away from all the hustle bustle. Facilities excellent. Food was value for money. Not really a bad thing to say about the place.

The Castle and rooms are first class. The many acres surrounding the castle are great for walks in the woods - we saw a couple of deer running through the trees. Golf course looked in great shape though we didn't have time to play it. Did do some clay shooting on the estate which was great . All staff we... More

It's a 5 star castle in Ireland... Its as expected, truly 5 stars, very nice place, nice grounds, just a joy to stay. Really enjoyed skeet shooting as well as having the tasting menu on site. Lots of photographic areas of the castle, and would definitely come back, even at the cost.
