Reviewed yesterday NEW

Staff were lovely. Breakfast was great. Nice area for kids. Bedroom could do with refurbishing it was a family room the size of room was fine but got a bad smell in it of dampness. Found it difficult to get WiFi in room no problem to get it in bar.

The Inn at Dromoland is our favourite hotel. We recently travelled from Kildare to celebrate my son's Communion and we had a great weekend. Everything was 100% best family hotel in the country. Highly recommend this hotel

I have never left a low star review in all of my years on TA but this inn has driven me to it! We're here currently and looking forward to checkout tomorrow morning. They have refurbished rooms but we were placed in an older, shabby room with trash out front of our room and a loud metal rattling sound outside...

Thank you Vanntastic for taking the time to leave your review. I am sorry to see that we did not meet your expectations on your visit. I know our Reception Desk offered you 3 different rooms to move to, and although our website said we had Superior Rooms available, I am afraid we did not have any rooms remaining. Sincere...

Visiting friends in Ennis the hotel was ideally located. We were told we were being upgraded to Exec Rooms on an Adult only floor but rooms were 'standard' in my opinion and I'm not sure who the screeching 3 year old belonged to when they wandered past. Rooms were a bit of a trek from reception. Swimming pool area needs...

We asked at reception if the room we were being allocated was nice, mostly because some of the Tripadvisor comments had shown that it varied. Male receptionist said he was giving us a free upgrade and said not to tell the manager who was passing through reception. Either he thought we were extremely gullible or the original room was very...

Stayed here for a weekend with my family and was very happy with the hotel and the service. Hotel is right off the motorway but still peaceful with the grounds of Dromoland Castle within walking access. Rooms are spacious though a fair walk from the reception as its a long stretched out hotel.Good breakfast and no problem that we turned...

We were pleasantly surprised by this hotel. There were many things for the children to do, an indoor pool, mini golf, and an outdoor playground. We had a family room which suited our needs, Breakfast was fine for us as well. We would stay there again.We really enjoyed out meals at the onsite restaurant.
