We are flying into DUB and will be renting a car driving straight to Dromoland - how long will it take?

Route planner for Ireland. It's a good resource, but remember it's just an estimate so don't use as 100% accurate.

From Dublin Airport to Dromoland should take you about 2h45 minutes or so, maybe 3h. It is 4 lane road all the way.

But this depends on the traffic. Once you get out of Dublin Airport, get on and off the M50 then you will be on the M7 and you will be over the worst of the traffic jams. This is an excellent road. When you get to the outskirts of Limerick, follow the signs for the Shannon Tunnel (toll €1.90). Then keep on the road, pass the turn off for the motorway and near Newmarket on Fergus you should see signs for Dromoland.

As Bean A says, once you leave Dublin, it is a pretty easy drive. Probably best to allow about the 3 hours.

Follow Bean's directions and take exit 11 off the motorway to get to Dromoland.

The route planner that IrishFan has suggested is excellent for travelling around Ireland.

If you need any other advise while you are visiting County Clare, be sure to come back and ask us.

You are getting off to a great start with Dromoland. It is a gorgeous place, I envy you getting to stay there.
