Dromoland Castle Hotel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 November 2016 via mobile

What can I say, but the staff is phenomenal! Even though we were only here one night, my new bride and I will remember it forever! We had lunch in the cocktail lounge and both meals were delicious! I have noticed in other reviews people talked about how dated things were! It is an old castle that is what we expected! The history, the stories of such a place is what makes it memorable! Our breakfast in the morning was also excellent!! We are looking at returning in 3 years for my 50th! Thank you, Dromoland staff for Wonderful time!!

We had been here many years ago. Many fine places have gone down hill. Not Dromoland. The staff was most competent while not being snooty. In fact they could not have made us more comfortable. Our room was superb. We stay in many fine resorts, but do not always feel comfortable. Dromoland's staff and facility conveyed a relaxed, but responsive comfort.
The afternoon tea overlooking the pond and grounds was idyllic. Our only issue which we should have asked the staff for help was that the room was exceedingly hot and the windows would not stay open to alleviate the heat from the registers that we could not turn down.

Room Tip: If the room is too hot and the window won't stay open and you can't sleep, ask for help.

Service, decor, foo, grounds all exceeded expectations. When I found my room to be lacking I was escorted to a different, updated room close to traveling companions. Any request was fulfilled with enthusiasm. Terrific staff from housekeeping to management. Treat yourself to this once in a lifetime experience.

If i could give Dromoland 10 stars I would. Elegant, yet comfortable, this castle was amazing! From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty. The staff could not have been more helpful. My husband decided to play a round of golf and they were able to get me a last minute spa appointment. I highly recommend a massage if you have the time. The grounds are beautiful and well kept. We had dinner at the Fig restaurant. The Steak was cooked to perfection and the Fish and chips were crispy and delicious. Unfortunately we were only able to spend one night, but when we return we are definitely staying at least 2. If you are looking for something other than a typical hotel stay, this would be the place.

supremely elegant but with a very personal touch; we had never been to a hotel/resort that matched the overall comfort, facilities, activities, and hospitality we experienced at the Dromoland Castle. We are already planning a return trip.
