We recently visited the Castle for my cousin's New Years Eve wedding. What an incredible event it was. My cousin is extremely creative, so I was not shocked that this event would be out of this world, but the castle provided an easy back drop to meet the criteria. I found the staff welcoming and hospitable! Thank you for your...

I can't rave enough about our stay at Dromoland Castle! It was pure magic! We arrived a little after dark and the castle facade with lit up beautifully for Christmas. Our room was large and very luxurious. We immediately felt very relaxed and comfortable as we freshened up for dinner at the Earl of Thomond Restaurant. There we had a...

If you've never been to other castles in Ireland (like Ashford Castle, Kilronan Castle, etc) you might like this place. Unfortunately I have been to those places and more and so this place was a disappointment. It's neither grand and opulent or rustic and charming, just something in the middle which gives kind of a tired/dated impression. I know it's...

Another outstanding visit to the stunningly beautiful Dromoland Castle-- fabulous surroundings, gorgeous castle & awesome service by the team at Dromoland. Warm, genuine super friendly staff, the castle looked fantastically festive & we enjoyed a wonderful stay prior to Christmas . Truly excellent -- cannot recommend highly enough - which is why we continue to return.

Staying at Dromoland Castle was the best way to end 2016 & to begin 2017. Their New Years 2-Night Celebration Package is wonderful! My husband & I enjoyed our accommodation, the delicious food & drinks, the friendly service, castle activities, & the grounds. Highly recommended!

Excellent experience. The ambiance is wonderful and it felt like going back in time. Staff were excellent with attention to detail. My only issue was the price, particularly for the food as it is a fairly bog standard menu. nothing really out of the ordinary to justify the cost.
