Positive Reviews

Gorgeous spacious accommodations

Accommodations at the hotel are everything and more that guests hope them to be. The rooms are gorgeously furnished, and provide ample space for belongings, large parties, and just to stretch out in and not feel cramped. Dining, spa, and common room facilities are just as lavish and spacious, and create a rewarding atmosphere and experience.

Menu options are delicious and well priced

Food doesn't disappoint, as the menu options are expertly and exquisitely prepared and presented. The ingredients are fresh, dishes are delicious, and there's quite a variety to meet preferences and needs. The pricing is also quite fair, considering the high-quality establishment that the restaurants and bars are a part of.

Staff are wonderful and welcoming

Guests of every age are warmly welcomed and receive prompt and courteous attention. Menus and amenities are adapted accordingly for children, and the staff has board games and other activities on hand to keep kids interested. The friendly personalities add to the reasons why guests enjoy staying here.

Negative Reviews

Shooting range is close to walking trails

One grievance that stands out is that clay pigeon shooting is within a range where pellets can land where some of the walking and relaxation spots are on the grounds. Keep this in mind, and check with staff if you're going to stroll around.

Difficult to experience everything

There's so much to do and see when staying at Dromoland Castle that it's a minor complaint that time is never enough! Activities should be booked in advance, and schedules taken into consideration to see if you can stay a bit longer.

Nothing else negative about the hotel

So far, no other negative opinion has been expressed by the guests about this hotel.
