Welcome to Dromoland Castle

A hideaway for all seasons

Ireland’s most magical address, Dromoland Castle has been welcoming guests since the 16th century. The ancestral home of the O’Briens of Dromoland, whose lineage dates back 1,000 years to Brian Boru, one of the last High Kings of Ireland, we’ve got nobility and hospitality in our DNA.

From the imposing baronial façade to our startling interiors, you’ll find a world of historic grandeur underpinned by the finest modern comforts. With lavish decor, indulgent dining, fabulous views and magnificent bedrooms, this is a place to feel at home.

Behind our warm Irish welcome is the belief that every guest is royalty. Stroll the 500-acre estate. Tee off on our world class golf course. Take afternoon tea by a roaring fire.  Enjoy delicious cuisine. No matter what your preference, at Dromoland Castle there’s no escaping the sense that you are walking in the shadows of kings.

The pinnacle of excellence, come in the knowledge that all your expectations will be met. A remarkable retreat with an easy elegance, it’s time to make Dromoland Castle a part of your story.

We are delighted to celebrate our Managing Director, Mr Mark Nolan, honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award by @preferredhotels, the world's largest independent hotel brand, at last night's Gala Dinner in Lisbon. 

Dromoland was also honoured with an Award of Excellence on the night for Sustainability as part of Preferreds’ Global Annual GIFFTS Awards Ceremony -  Great Initiatives for Today's (Tomorrow's) Society.  A significant global Award demonstrating Dromoland Castle Resort’s commitment to sustainability. Congratulations to our Sustainability Officer, Fiona and our green team. 

"To be named the recipient of this honour from Preferred Hotels & Resorts Worldwide is very humbling.  My career in hospitality has been most rewarding, and of course, like anything, not without its challenges, and a resort such as Dromoland does not succeed without a fantastic, dedicated team on the ground, so I owe this in part to my wonderful colleagues and their friendship down through the years. There is one thing we all share – a passion and love for all things hospitality – we have accomplished a lot as a team and more yet to do, thank you to Preferred for this wonderful recognition – I am very, very humbled indeed”. - Mark Nolan
