Dromoland Castle was the perfect capstone for our two-week Irish vacation. The property is spectacular, like being a part of a Downton Abbey episode. Staff and service was attentive and friendly. Amenities and activities were all great. The Cocktail Bar was of particular note. Truly a special place, well worth the price.

We visited 4 Castles in Ireland and Dromoland was the best of all of them. The amenities were fabulous and the Staff was exceptional. We were only able to stay one night and were very disappointed that we couldn't stay longer!

We marked our 50th birthday in opulent splendour, old school charm and with uber-attentive staff that catered to our every need even before we knew we needed it! Our only regret was that we couldn't have stayed longer...but we'll be back!

Our family loved staying here. There was so much to do from hawking to biking to golf to eating incredible meals. Didn't get to try the spa & that was a BIG regret. Comfortable rooms & fantastic service. The staff could not be nicer! Hoping we can go again one day.

The castle and grounds were gorgeous. The service was impeccable. Our room was lovely. We enjoyed Mrs. White's tea which we would recommend. We used the complimentary bikes, the complimentary row boat and fishing equipment and the pool. All made it really enjoyable for our 11 year old daughter. The room was pricey and a splurge to end our trip....

You will be treated like a queen and a king at the Dromoland Castle--elegant rooms with towel warmers, gourmet dining experiences, a natural, scenic golf course, spa and pool facilities, breathtaking flower gardens, and, best of all, an opportunity to meet, hold, and understand hawks, falcons, and owls at their falconry school!
