When it was clear there would be no snow in December we took a different kind of family vacation than our usual ski trip. Ireland is a wonderful country with friendly people , great food, and less expensive than its European neighbors.
The Dromoland castle was fabulous. The staff was courteous and professional, the rooms spacious, and the food outstanding(especially Breakfast). The choices at breakfast were amazing. One day I had the most delicious,freshly prepared pan fried lemon sole for breakfast.
The main dining room for dinner was a little pricey considering our dinner for 5 one night cost more than the two rooms we occupied. the wine list could include some better value options. Another night we dined in the less formal room where the food was equal and the bill far less.
The room furnishings are a little tired and could use an update. The bathroom amenities and towels could use a little upgrade. Otherwise this place is first rate.
The weather was a bit rainy so we did not partake in the activities offered on the magnificent grounds. I would go back in Summer to take advantage of this.More
