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.

"What child wouldn’t want to spend the night in a real, live castle with turrets and suits of armour and princess-and-the-pea four-poster beds? Younger guests are especially well looked after here, with egg hunts in the leafy grounds at Easter, treats delivered to the room for movie nights and junior bathrobes and slippers after bubbly baths in a grand tub. This being a castle, there are also regal pursuits for families, including falconry and archery, plus go karts and bicycles to zip around on. "
