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
Fabulous property with very modern rooms. If you are looking for a "authentic" castle experience this is not it but it is a five star property. Many of the trips we looked at really used this as an extra night for the Shannon airport. My advice is take an extra day and unwind here

The best way to experience Ireland and it's hospitality. The staff was amazing and very helpful. The service was impeccable. The rooms are gorgeous and spacious. The food is amazing and the choices plentiful. We especially enjoyed exploring the grounds and relaxing on the patio.

This place looks like a castle is supposed to look (thanks, Disney!). My stay was brief, but I wished I had carved out more time. The newly refurbished state room was fabulous. The service was very good. The grounds and gardens demand attention and should not be missed. The only problem was the dining options are very limited and need to be completely overhauled. With only one dinner restaurant (coat/tie required) most of the hotel guests opted instead for a more casual meal in the bar area which meant for slow service and serious overcrowding....and I don't think the hotel was even full. You can eat in the nearby golf clubhouse, but that menu was uninspired. Don't let the dining concerns dissuade you from staying at this hotel. It is a great property in an idyllic setting even if slightly out of the way. Quite expensive, but worth every Euro!

the entire staff wants to make sure you're good and you will be as every need can and will be addressed. yes it's expensive so enjoy and worry about the visa bill next month. wish we could have spent more time there but we were on the move.
