The Fig Tree Restaurant is wonderful. Food is perfectly prepared and locally sourced. The pan sauteed hake is delicious. The service is exactly the same throughout the Dromoland Hotel - better than Ritz Carlton!

Dining here you will experience the elegance of eating in a castle . The food was excellent and there were many choices . All the servers, in all of the rooms - main dining room, The Fig Tree and the fireplace rooms- were very pleasant.

I can not remember exactly but I did it as a treat at the end of our holiday. There were 5 of us and it was great value and did not hurt the wallet too much.
