Savor your first glimpse of this majestic castle and its enchanting lake, as you pass through the castle gates. This was the ancestral home of the Dromoland O’Briens who were the Kings of Thomond and whose lineage goes back 1,000 years to Brian Boru, the only High King of Ireland. Dromoland Castle is also within easy reach of the wonderful Wild Atlantic Way, the Cliffs of Moher, the Burren and all the delights that County Clare and County Limerick have to offer.
One recent American visitor wrote "Timelessness drips from the hills, the fields, the sky. Great, gray, mossy woolen clouds hang low, over acres of glistening emerald. Tendrils of gauzy, linen opaqueness trail silken traces of soft, buttery dampness that yields a gentle moistness, to caress the skin with a tender touch of satin. These are the fabrics and textures of the West of Ireland and of our beloved Dromoland Castle. They form a cloak that envelops the body and nurtures the soul. We will be back-of that we have no doubt".
Under glittering antique chandeliers descend grand staircases and meander through elegant hallways and beautifully furnished rooms. Luxuriate in plush, sink-in sofas in front of large, ornate fireplaces with blazing log fires. Relax as our unsurpassed, experienced and friendly staff takes special care of you. The Earl of Thomond’s Restaurant offers you a heavenly dining experience you’ll remember forever. And cocktails in Dromoland’s Library Bar are sublime, so go on treat yourself.
Appreciate the natural beauty as you stroll through the peaceful Dromoland Estate (with more than 400 acres to explore). Feed the ducks or take a boat out on the lovely lake. Why not try an archery class or enjoy our falconry experience? Or what about a round of golf or a relaxing spa date?
