Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. The castle was beautiful. The beds were the best we had on our entire 11 day vacation. They cater nicely to Americans (ex: washcloths in bathroom). Highly recommend.

The service and staff at Dromoland were of the highest standards that we have experienced. They went to great lengths to make our stay absolutely perfect. Our reservation was for a 2-bed room, but they had us booked in a King room. We didn't have much time before our dinner reservations, so they offered us the King room to freshen...

We arrived at Dromoland Castle at 7 AM, immediately upon landing at Shannon Airport. The staff was very welcoming, treated us like royalty, served us coffee and pastries in the drawing room while readying our rooms. The castle is stunning. Beautifully maintained, with gorgeous rooms, tons of amenities, great food, excellent staff. We will definitely stay longer next time.

Excellent! Everything! Just so sorry our trip was short. Got lost coming from Mayo, so didn't get to use much of the facilities. Will definitely come back and stay longer. Everything about this hotel was a wonderful experience.
