After a very rocky start this hotel pulled it out for us. I had booked very far in advance and requested a double room- all the pictures of which were gorgeous. When we arrived we were showed to a basement (really) room with a king bed (when I specifically confirmed again at check in that we had a double). It... More

For the most part I loved this property--its BEAUTIFUL (as many of the castles are!) and our room and bath were positively spacious compared to other properties we experienced (and nicely appointed). The furnishings are as you might expect--to the theme. The restaurant was lovely and we had a quite good dinner (jackets required for gentlemen!). Service across the boards... More

From the minute we drive up at the gate Dromoland delivered. John the bellman started of a fantastic customer experience. The rooms were not new but well appointed and very comfortable. Extraordinary walled gardens. Dining room service and food was 5 star. Our group ended the visit with a very fun archery session. Would absolutely recommend Dromoland.

This is the nicest hotel we've ever stayed in! From the moment we pulled up the attendant was beyond helpful getting our luggage to our room and ensuring everything was perfect. The rooms were luxury from the bed to every small detail. Food was fabulous whether room service or the included breakfast. You feel like royalty when you stay at... More

Only stay if you want excellent service, great food, comfortable accommodations and a library that will fulfill your every need.😀 The grounds are beautiful and the castle is awe inspiring. Make every effort to have a dream come true.

On arrival at restaurant the 3 men were asked if they had jackets. How quaint!! I said that this was not mentioned when booking. Jackets were then supplied. The meal was fine but not outstanding at €75 )+15% service) each. We've had better food elsewhere without the unnecessary formalities which is particularly off putting for people in their twenties.
