This is Irish country living at its very best

A magnificent playground of country pursuits, Dromoland Castle’s 500-acre estate offers up so many opportunities for fun. Surrounded by County Clare’s rolling hills, your stay can be as chilled out or high energy as your wish.

Make like a royal and schedule some archery, clay shooting or falconry. Our resident hawks, falcons and owls will take your breath away. Plenty of local wildlife call our estate home too, so you may just end up sharing your walk with some deer, pheasants, squirrels or ducks!

Majestic Dromoland Lough is excellent for trout fishing, boating or stand up paddle boarding with the added bonus of distractingly good views of the Castle. Take a woodland jog before breakfast, head off on a cycle around the grounds or enjoy a romantic stroll in the Walled Garden after dinner. Our grounds and gardens are simply magical (well, they do share the same designer as the Gardens of Versailles!), with fabulous historic details hidden around every bend.

Dromoland Castle’s 18-hole championship golf course is famous for good reason. The par 72 course, redesigned by Ron Kirby and the late JB Carr, wraps around the historic estate and is both thoughtful and challenging. We’re rather proud of our state-of-the-art practice facility too, which has 10 fully automated driving bays, complete with Golf-Tech’s fully automated Power Tees.

With a swimming pool, tennis courts, gym, sauna, steam room, go-karting for kids and a beautiful spa, we know you’ll enjoy every minute of our five-star offering.
