The Inn at Dromoland was quite a disappointment. The property is visibly aged, and gives no sense of comfort or relaxation. There are kids running rampant all over the property, many without adult supervision. The decor throughout the bar/restaurant/lobby appeared to have been selected at complete random. Upon checking in, the front desk associate asked if we wanted to upgrade to the 'refurbished' bedrooms for an extra €40 per night. We decided to see the standard room before making our decision, and upon arriving in our room, we immediately went back to reception to upgrade. The upgrade included a flat panel TV, new lighting fixtures and an updated bathroom. ***There is no A/C anywhere in the building.*** Not even the upgrade could help us there.
The hotel lies about 500 yards from the highway, and having to sleep with the windows open (due to no A/C) we could hear cars zipping by throughout the night.
We could hear people walking around their hotel room above us all night and the next morning.
We don't hate children, but do hate when they run around screaming as if the hotel is a playground.
We would HIGHLY encourage you to consider the Dromoland Castle Hotel three minutes away from the Inn at Dromoland.
