Dromoland Castle Hotel in County Clare, Ireland
Savour your first glimpse of this majestic castle and its enchanting lake, as you pass through the castle gates. This was the ancestral home of the O’Briens of Dromoland who were the Kings of Thomond and whose lineage goes back 1,000 years to Brian Boru, the only High King of Ireland.
Under glittering antique chandeliers descend grand staircases, meander through elegant hallways and beautifully furnished rooms. Luxuriate in plush, sink-in sofas in front of large, ornate fireplaces with blazing log fires. Relax as our unsurpassed, experienced and friendly staff takes special care of you. The Earl of Thomond’s Restaurant offers you a heavenly dining experience that you’ll remember forever. Cocktails in Dromoland’s Library Bar are sublime, so go on and treat yourself. Appreciate the natural beauty as you stroll through the peaceful Dromoland Estate (with more than 400 acres to explore). Dromoland Castle is also within easy reach of the wonderful Wild Atlantic Way, the Cliffs of Moher, the Burren and all the delights that County Clare and County Limerick have to offer. Conveniently close to Shannon International Airport (gateway to the US and Europe).

Reviews for Dromoland Castle Hotel
Everything about Dromoland Castle is lovely but I do think that it is a bit pricey. Also I am not sure if the 15% service charge is a good idea even if one is just having coffee its added on..I think people should give their own tips..

We stayed at Dromoland Castle over the holidays with our extended family - 11 of us total - and we all had the most spectacular stay and experience. Every member of the staff was lovely, welcoming, helpful, and always willing to go above and beyond. One of the highlights of our vacation there was the pony and trap ride with Stephen at the helm. Not only did my husband and I love the tour, but also our kids (ages 12 and 14) enjoyed every minute of it! They loved learning all of the history surrounding Dromoland while in the carriage, and then we went and explored all around on foot - going in the hermit's cave, taking in the huge trees, walking all over the grounds. All of our meals were delicious and perfect! Starting with the breakfast buffet (they even made pasta for breakfast for my picky 12 year old!), to the casual bar setting, to the lovely meal at Fig Tree (I had my favorite roast beef for dinner there!) to the gorgeous 5 course meals at the Earl of Thomond restaurant. And the staff at the bar/lounge catered to my husband's whiskey obsession and brought him glasses upon glasses to taste and enjoy. Last but not least, do not miss the Falconry here! 9 of us went out on this adventure, each with a glove on our hand. Our hawk, Ophelia, entertained us all, and made sure we each had a special outing (and performed well for our pictures and slo-mo videos!). Then we topped it off with visiting all of the birds at the school (the favorite was Pickles the Owl!). We can't recommend this hotel enough. 5 stars

The castle was beautiful the staff were excellent and ever so helpful and friendly. . The room was very comfortable. The Earl of Thomand restaurant was very beautiful and the food delicious. Breakfast the next morning was delightful looking out at the beautiful gardens. The staff were very friendly and helpful picking the wine and food. Would definitely go back hopefully for a longer stay Andy/Maria Dublin
Overall was very nice . The only thing I felt was Decor in refurbished rooms was a little modern especially for a castle that is steeped in history . Also just one small thing was that there is no full lenght mirrors in refurbushed rooms .
Had the most fabulous stay in Dromoland with my boyfriend for my birthday weekend. From start to finish, the service was fantastic! The staff were very friendly and helped us out with anything we needed. The grounds are so beautiful, with lots of routes for walking. I would highly recommended the 5 course dinner in the Earl of Thomond restaurant, which has a separate vegetarian menu too! Every course was beautifully presented and so tasty, as was the amuse bouche and selection of breads. The rooms were average in my opinion for a 5 star hotel - quite dated and could do with a revamp. Shower was a bit cold and one of the lamps didnâ€™t work. Also, 2 coffees (nothing fancy, filter coffee actually!) and 2 tiny drop scones cost â‚¬20, which is a little bit ridiculous in my opinion! Other than that, I would highly recommend Dromoland and will definitely be back!
