2023 Travellers' Choice Best of the Best
Ireland’s most magical address, Dromoland Castle has been welcoming guests since the 16th Century. The ancestral home of the O’Briens of Dromoland, whose lineage dates back 1,000 years to Brian Boru, one of the last High Kinds of Ireland, we’ve got nobility and hospitality in our DNA. From the imposing baronial façade, to our startling interioirs, you’ll find a world of historic grandeur underpinned by the finest modern comforts. With lavish décor, indulgent dining, fabulous views and magnificent bedrooms, this is a place to feel at home. Behind our warm Irish welcome is the belief that every guest is royalty. Stroll the 450-acre estate. Tee off on our world class golf course. Take afternoon tea by a roaring fire. Relax in our intimate spa. Enjoy delicious cuisine. No matter what your preference, at Dromoland Castle there’s no escaping the sense that you are walking in the shadows of kings. The pinnacle of excellence, come in the knowledge that all your expectations will be met.

Our group thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Dromoland Castle. The entire property was beautiful and the staff and service was friendly and helpful. The food was excellent as were the different activities (afternoon tea, falconry, walking garden/exploring the grounds).

We had an amazing stay at Dromoland Castle, the staff were very friendly and very helpful with all our needs. We enjoyed wandering the castle grounds and enjoyed seeing the wildlife including observing several red squirrels and an abundance of birds. We will be visiting again. Thank you to all the staff

Our stay here was almost magical. Everything was wonderful from the arrival to our departure. It is so beautiful- the rooms, the grounds, the castle itself. It was one of our best experiences during our trip in Ireland.

Just returned from the most amazing 2 night break in Dromoland Castle. I have stayed in many 5 star hotels in Ireland , but this place is simply the best. The moment you arrive you are met by the friendly porters. Your car is parked for you and your luggage delivered to your room - and what a room. Everything you would ever need is there and beds are so comfy. Dinner in Earl of Thomond restaurant is fantastic as is breakfast. The wonderful MD Mark Nolan is on hand to ensure everything runs smoothly and his staff are so friendly. It would be unfair of me to mention any of them in particular because they were really all simply wonderful. Don't take my word for it, but do yourself a favour and treat yourself to this magnificient hotel. There are great offers on their website.

From the moment we arrived we were totally spoiled. Our room was magical boasting a welcoming fire lit in a magnificent setting with a beautiful Christmas tree twinkling in the corner. Surprises around every corner, lavish super king with just enough pillows for comfort

If you are looking for a five star castle stay in Ireland then look no further then Dromoland. Its everything you would expect from the drive into the estate and wonderful grounds to arriving at the stunning castle. The decor and ambience inside is wonderful and laid back. Service is on point. We had dinner in the Earl of Thomand on 1 night and it was absolutely stunning, the room, the food and the service. First time staying and will definitely be back. Top tip: Take 1 of the hotels golf carts out for a drive around the estate, great fun and you get to see so much of the grounds.

From arrival to departure, the staff focused on all your needs. The gold course is wonderful. I would highly recommend the Falconry Activity. It was amazing and the whole family loved it. The food was delicious, the staff is so friendly. Looking forward to our next stay.
