Amazing location and a great stay in a great historic castle. The staff is courteous and helpful. The accommodations are luxurious and well maintained and the activities at the hotel are unparalleled. If you stay here you have to try the Hawk Walk. Greatest experience I've ever had.

I wish I could've stayed longer. We were on a Castle tour of Ireland and Dromoland was by far the best! It made our other Castles look poor. You are treated like a Queen. Only downfall would've been that the castle was under construction so taking a picture of scaffolding wasn't too pretty

The major construction project was not disclosed until we check in. The room was overly heated with no way to regulate the temp. The front desk personnel where not up to the standards that we anticipated with such a property. This venue has pasted its prime.

My daughter and I really enjoyed our experience while visiting Ireland! We traveled all over otherwise we would have stayed longer! We took a great walk on the grounds and around the lake. I Hope to come back someday with my husband and three other children, next time I will take advantage of the spa.

The porters are wonderful. The spa is lovely as was my massage therapist. I was disappointed the gift shop was closed when I was there on Monday. Its only opened on the weekends. The bathrooms are okay.

Dromoland is such a treat! Rooms are spacious and have modern bathrooms and amenities but have a feel of authenticity and coziness - as do many of the spaces in the hotel. The bar was my favorite - dark woods and wallpapers with cabinets of liquor and a fireplace. Directly on a golf course as well with easy access from...

Absolutely beautiful place and amazing staff! The grounds are absolutely gorgeous and there are plenty of trails to walk around and explore on. I believe it sits on 400 or so acres. The breakfast was included in our rate and it was the best breakfast we have ever had at a hotel. They have a buffet with pastries, yogurt, bread,...

This will always be my go to treat for some R&R. Exceptional staff and service, comfort and quality in every corner and food fit for royalty. I cannot recommend Dromoland highly enough. From the moment you arrive you feel like you've visited there all your life the staff make you feel that relaxed and at home.
