The castle and grounds were spectacular. On arrival, we were lucky enough to have been greeted with the hounds, great if you love dogs. Our room was large and well appointed with a modern bathroom, although it wasn't as centrally located as other rooms. The various activities (clay shooting, archery, falconry) were fantastic.

I can't say enough about the service at the Castle. From Bellmen to front desk to house keeping, everyone was friendly, helpful and efficient. The wait staff in the Gallery and cocktail bar are outstanding. I felt so pampered!. Room service is amazing, so quick. Thank you for making my stay in Clare County Outstanding.

Upon arrival, there was no one to meet us at the bottom of the stairs. Our driver commented how shocked he was at this. We carried our luggage up the stairs to the lobby and checked in. We had two rooms, one for my wife and I, the other for my mother-in-law. You put my mother-in-law in the tower room,...

Stayed one night. Service in the Hotel was excelent. Staff were attentive and nice. In particular Aidan who remembered my son's name which was really appreciated.

I am rating this review "very good" for the wonderful...

We've visited Dromoland Castle three times now in the past 15 years and the amenities and level of service just keep getting better. The only thing we could want is for more celiac friendly items on the restaurant menu.

We travelled to Dromoland Castle to celebrate wife's "Milestone" birthday. This was a surprise to her - we had previously stayed in Fall, 2014, as part of a Castle Tour experience. We felt that Dromoland was the best, at that time. This visit re-inforced our opinion!

Excellent hotel with great staff. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and will be back. From checking in until leaving the service was impeccable and the quality of the food and drink 2nd to none. Thank you for a great stay.

We were fortunate enough to stay at Dromoland Castle for 2 nights... the staff was note-perfect wonderful, the castle itself updated to be a really special resort, the grounds beautiful... we loved every minute of it. The highlight for me was the hour we spent with the falconer... learned a lot! Highly recommend this castle hotel!

We had an excellent stay at Dromoland Castle. We stayed one night at the end of a family vacation and it was perfect. From the time we arrived until we departed, it was a terrific experience. I look forward to going back to Dromoland again and hope to stay a little longer.
