I cannot express how delightful the staff at this beautifully renovated castle. We had a lovely time and felt completely comfortable due to the staff's helpfulness at every turn. The resturant was amazing and delicious food served at every meal. Comfortable accommodations and large rooms.

Dromoland Castle was exactly how I pictured it. Gorgeous grounds, friendly staff and wonderful room. Couldn't have asked for a better stay! I didn't have time to golf, but would highly recommend getting in a round!

Dromoland Castle is a nice, old hotel. Very lovely grounds and grand main hallway, but it clearly shows its age. They internal layout is a bit awkward, with a few back hallways from the reception to the main area. No elevator means carting bags up and down stairs. Rooms themselves have nice features, but clearly outdated: furniture is old, bathrooms...

We had a wonderful time. They upgraded us to a room that they had just finished renovating. It was beautiful. The only thing we would change in the room was the mirror in the bathroom....it was too high. I'm 5'5" and my husband is 5'10" and I could only see the very tippy top of my head and my husband...

Beautiful grounds with 5 star service and staff. Would highly recommend and certainly will return. The rooms were spacious and indulgent. They even had an American type plug receptacle in addition to plenty of outlets to recharge you life. I personally recommend the Falconry excursion - well worth the extra cost and truly a once in a life-time adventure.

An incredibly beautiful castle/hotel. Truly worth the 5 star rating. The castle is a rebuilt version of the original, having several additions added over the centuries as well, with only a few remaining areas that are original. I stayed in one of the original towers, the room was fantastic. Very spacious, a large and very comfortable bed. Maid service was...
