Fine room with lovely view--great spa setup including hot tub-particularly welcome after Irish rain. Buffet breakfast a banquet and good food in the pub. But we were there for a wedding and it was spectacular for an Irish bride and a Canadian groom with lots of international guests. Perfect private spaces for the secular wedding, for the reception with china... More

We arrived on Sunday evening.....we had a very warm welcome by the friendly receptionist. Check in was speedy, always a bonus with 3 kids. Our room was clean and spacious. We went swimming, took the kids to the play area, the only fault there is the way over priced coffee especially when you only get half a cup!!!! On out... More

Myself and my family love staying at this hotel. The staff are the friendliest staff I've ever met and the food is absolutely gorgeous. The only suggestion I would make is to clean the swimming pool more often as my husband cut his foot on something sharp on the floor of the pool.

The staff and the access to the Dromoland estate make this hotel worth far more than it's official 3-star status. The food in the bar is very good, breakfast is far above normal 3-star hotels with high quality ingredients and plenty of nice touches like miniature homemade scones available. Ideal for family occasions and particularly good for young children. The... More
