Dromoland Castle

Dromoland Castle

Given its world-class golf, splendid spa, gourmet dining and magical storybook setting next to a glistening lake, there's not much Dromoland Castle doesn't have. It's little wonder this is considered one of Europe's most desirable destinations. Travelers enjoy thoroughly indulgent comforts, from handmade chocolates and champagne upon request to freshly prepared picnic baskets to unpack anywhere on the 450-acre estate. At the lush spa, enjoy a treatment in the outdoor hydro spa covered by a romantic gazebo, or head to the 18-hole golf course designed by Irish golf legend J.B. Carr and renowned architect Ron Kirby.

Hotel Tip

Before dinner make sure to visit The Cocktail Bar (previously the library) and sample the Dromoland Castle signature cocktails.

Outstanding in every way!

Every aspect of our stay was outstanding: the estate grounds, the castle hotel facilities and activities offered, our room, cleanliness, friendliness of all the staff and, most importantly, the service. The dining room is beautiful and the service (breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner) exceeded our already high expectations! Not only did the genuinely friendly servers seat us promptly, they responded to our every need immediately, in an unhurried, friendly, yet efficient manner and when asked if we would like another pot of coffee or tea, they also brought us fresh cups and silverware--every time. We also appreciated the availability of coffee and tea readily available for take away in the mornings. This service was a delightful surprise and we took advantage of it each morning on our way out to site see. We have never before experienced this extent of service and amenities in any 5 star accommodation. Bravo!

Beautiful hotel in a tucked away castle near Shannon. The grounds are sprawling, and there is no shortage of things to do. Best part: the shower was amazing!

Several of the drivers we had while in Ireland referred to Dromoland Castle as being very highly regarded, and they were right. We had a lovely stay in very comfortable accommodations and impeccable service. I would return to stay here anytime!

The stay was only one night but it was a great stay. Enjoyed gardens and the staff was very accommodating. Explored Irish Whiskey and had a great meal at the golf club.

What a lovely experience to spend a few nights at Dromoland. From the moment our car door was opened, we felt like we lived in a fairytale castle. The staff are excellent, our room was gorgeous, and there was so much to do. Our children begged us not to leave the property because of all the fun activities Dromoland offers. The Cliffs of Mohr will have to wait until our next visit to Ireland.

Sheer fantasy

Dromoland combines the historic charm of an authentic castle with the benefits and modern amenities of a 5 star resort. We were mesmerized by the beauty, elegance and ambiance of the property. The quality and creativity of the floral arrangements inside the resort as well as on the property; tasteful music in the evenings including pianoforte and harp played during dinner in the formal dining room, and exceptionally well trained staff added to the experience. Dining is high level. Their pastry chef is very talented and the entire kitchen staff and food personnel are impeccable in their knowledge of etiquette. Even the casual golf dining was an exceptionally high quality "foodie" experience. There is a sense of magic infused in this property so that everywhere we went, every experience we had, it seemed there was a pleasant, unexpected surprise, whether when riding our bicycles, running the trails, walking the property or dining. It is a do not miss.
