Castle & Grounds

At Dromoland Castle

Spend time enjoying Dromoland Castle’s magnificent estate and the lands that noble families once called home. Pathways criss-cross the demesne, meandering through woodlands, around the lake and beyond the fairways. A woodland stroll will reveal hidden secrets, from woodland creatures to foxes and deer, hares, rabbits and pheasants to a hermit’s grotto and the mysterious Temple of Mercury. Marvel at the picture-perfect lily pond, bug hotel (a favourite with children!), beautiful walled garden and the impressive yew tree gallery that dates back to 1740. Walk, jog or cycle, but, whatever you do, don’t forget to row out into the middle of Dromoland Lough. The views of the Castle are simply perfect from here.

A walking map of the estate is available at reception.
