We stayed for two nights with my partners disabled son. (We were attending a wedding) All of the staff were so friendly and helpful and could not do enough to support us. This is a dreamy location, steeped in history, the grounds are well cared for and a joy to walk through. We loved every minute of our stay. The...

Another outstanding visit to the stunningly beautiful Dromoland Castle-- fabulous surroundings, gorgeous castle & awesome service by the team at Dromoland. Warm, genuine super friendly staff, the castle looked fantastically festive & we enjoyed a wonderful stay prior to Christmas . Truly excellent -- cannot recommend highly enough - which is why we continue to return.

Staying at Dromoland Castle was the best way to end 2016 & to begin 2017. Their New Years 2-Night Celebration Package is wonderful! My husband & I enjoyed our accommodation, the delicious food & drinks, the friendly service, castle activities, & the grounds. Highly recommended!

Excellent experience. The ambiance is wonderful and it felt like going back in time. Staff were excellent with attention to detail. My only issue was the price, particularly for the food as it is a fairly bog standard menu. nothing really out of the ordinary to justify the cost.

Only stayed one day. Not enough time to enjoy this beautiful castle. Felt like a Princess. Dinner was spectacular with quietly efficient staff. Rooms modern but castle was a wonderful experience Rainy day so could not do trekking we were planning. So we cozier up to fireplace for lunch and wine. Then afternoon tea.

Wow. I love this place and I want to live here!! The afternoon tea is scrumptious and well worth the money. From the sandwiches to the scones and then the dessert and everything in between, I'm still dreaming of it. I've been way too many times now and I cant wait to come back 😂

From top to bottom Dromoland Castle was amazing! I was fortunate to stay in an older room in the oldest part of the castle, which was a wonderful experience, as I love history! My only regret is that I didn't get a chance to use the spa due to my having other activities booked.

We were there recently for 2 days to celebrate a special birthday, which was just after Christmas and nice to get away from all of the buzz of the season!. From the moment we drove up to the hotel and opened the door of the car, Tom brought all our luggage in and parked our car for us it was...

As indicated in the survey overall our experience was very positive. Only negative was the issue with bringing my son in his wheelchair to the function room. Would love to go back and enjoy the golf and fantastic walks. Special mention for Margaret and Aidan who did more than what was expected of them to make our stay a happy...
